The Sephora Holiday Savings Event is here! This is Sephora’s biggest savings event of the year that happens once in the spring and then now. The most frequent question I get every year is for me to narrow down my favorites. I do monthly Sephora Hauls that go in-depth on my favorite picks and I have linked those below if you want to browse. For this post I’m going to focus on my top items per category, the best gift sets for the Holidays like Sephora’s Give Me More Lip Lipstick Set or this Charlotte Tilbury Mini Filmstar Bronze & Glow Contour Duo, and a few new clean beauty items I’m loving.

My Top Picks From Sephora
I review a ton of items from Sephora and love dabbling in all things beauty. Here are what I would consider, at the current time, to be my top picks!
PRIMER // BECCA Skin Love Brighten & Blur Primer // I LOVE THIS PRIMER! It’s maybe the best, most weightless primer I have ever used and it leaves my makeup feeling so silky! I wear it under cc cream or foundation and find that it helps my makeup look fresh all day long! Stock up during the sale.
FOUNDATION // Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation â€“ The best. I think this is my new foundation. It’s lightweight and buildable and is great for everyday!
CC CREAM // IT Cosmetics CC Cream â€“ Always a crowd favorite. I apply this stuff with my fingers for everyday wear! Love that it has SPF built into it and that it’s packed full of antioxidants.
CONCEALER // Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer // This full-coverage, weightless, waterproof concealer with a natural finish containing tiny powders that blur and brighten for up to 16 hours! This crease-resistant liquid concealer reflects light and blends seamlessly into skin, diffusing the look of pores and fine lines. Hourglass concealer also has a highly pigmented formula that evens skin tone and diminishes the appearance of imperfections, leaving you with a natural, airbrushed finish. I wear color, â€œsilkâ€.
POWDER // Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder // Can never get enough of Charlotte Tilburyâ€˜s products. This setting powder is pressed but is ultra fine, and hydrates skin with rose wax and almond oil throughout the day!
SETTING POWDER // Becca Hydra Mist Powder â€“ My current favorite loose powder. I have been using this for several months now, and it’s my go-to for every day use!
MASCARA // Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara â€“ I typically stick to drugstore mascaras, but if I’m purchasing a higher end one, this is always my go-to!
EYESHADOW // Tartelette In Bloom Palette â€“ This has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. It has a great mix of matte shades and shimmery ones. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Palette â€“ 4 gorgeous shades in warm bronze, blush and nude shades! I also love the â€œExaggereyesâ€ palette.
EYE LINER // Huda Life Liner Double-Ended Eyeliner â€“ It’s rare to find an eyeliner that is long-lasting, waterproof, smudge-proof and fade-proof that applies smoothly and flawlessly. Huda has nailed it with this dual-ended liquid and pencil eyeliner.
BROW PEN // Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil â€“ My ride or die brow product. My eyebrows are microbladed so they don’t need too too much filling in, but I do like to give the shape a little help by using this pencil.
UNDER EYE PRIMER // Becca Anti Fatigue Under Eye Primer // This product is actually an under eye primer that cools, soothes, and reduces puffiness, perfectly prepping your under eyes for concealer!
LIP LINER // Lip Cheat Liner â€“ I wear â€œPillow Talkâ€ in this velvety liner by Charlotte Tilbury! It’s called a lip-cheat because you can over-line your lips and it won’t move thanks to the no-smudge, waterproof formula.
LIPGLOSS // Collagen Lip Bath by Charlotte Tilbury â€“ This product has been a staple in my bag since I bought it! It’s a hybrid lip enhancer that moisturizes your lips with marine collagen and softens them with coconut oil.
LIPSTICK // Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick â€“ â€œBitch Perfectâ€ is the best color!! This lipstick is also enriched with antioxidants and blended with special waxes for all-day wear.
LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER // Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand â€“ Highlights without making you look glittery and the rose-golden color suits an array of skin tones. I apply it to my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on the inner corners of my eyes and on my cupid’s bow.
POWDER HIGHLIGHTER // Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector // This is Becca’s bestselling highlighter in their signature shade, â€œChampagne Pop!â€
BLUSH // Charlotte Tilbury Blush â€“ In color “cheek to chic. Put the outer color on your cheekbone, and put the middle color on the apples of your cheeks for a youthful glow.
BRONZER // NARS â€“ Matte Bronzer Powder // I am a big fan of a matte bronzer and this one in â€œLagunaâ€ is the perfect hue for summer! I use it under my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and even as an eyeshadow! I love that it’s not shimmery or orange and gives you a golden sun-kissed glow!
REFRESHING SPRAY // Caudalie Beauty Elixir // I go through this beauty elixir like it’s my job. The bottle may say 2-3 spritzes are enough, but if it claims to make me pretty you’d better believe I’ll be using a full 6-10.
SETTING SPRAY // URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray // This is one of my favorite makeup setting sprays and is only in my cart because I desperately need a refill!!
TONER // SKII Essence â€“ Pricey but I do think it has made a difference in the clarity of my skin!
LIP MASK // Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask â€“ An overnight lip mask for supple, hydrated lips!
SUNLESS TANNER // St. Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse // Still the best self tanner I’ve ever used!
EYE PATCHES // Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches â€“ The ultimate â€œtreat yourselfâ€ purchase. Put them in the fridge overnight and apply in the morning for the best experience!
OVERNIGHT MASK // Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask // A cult favorite for it’s rich, hydrating formula, this mask is infused with ceramides, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to combat puffy, inflamed, over-worked skin.
DE-PUFFING MASK // Clarins V-Facial Intensive Wrap // I love this facial mask! It is a triple-action mask that refines your facial contours as it brightens and restores radiance. It’s perfect for puffy cheeks and swelling caused by heat or hormones. I like to apply in the morning (or before I get ready for something special) and leave it on for 30 minutes to an hour while I get dressed, tidy up and fix my hair.
CLARIFYING MASK // Tata Harper Clarifying AHA & BHA Mask // A blemish-targeting mask that clarifies, exfoliates, and soothes redness with AHAs and quartz micro-crystals for a smooth, clear-looking complexion.
SKINCARE TOOL // NuFace Mini â€“ A convenient handheld facial toning device! I have one and love it.
EYE CREAM // BIOSSANCE Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream // I have been using this hydrating eye cream made with Marine Algae Complex for weeks and I am loving it. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as few as seven days. Paracress Extract lifts, smooths, and firms the look of skin, Marine Algae Complex reduces the appearance of fine lines, and Squalane locks in moisture
ACNE TREATMENT // Peace Out Acne Healing Dots // These Peace Out Acne Healing Dots (combined with Retin-A) actually work!
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER // Olaplex Shampoo & Olaplex Conditioner // I love the entire Olaplex system. If you are looking for a hair treatment to strengthen hair, reduce breakage & leave your hair silky smooth, look no further! Created by two of the top PhD’s in chemistry and materials science, Olaplex products feature first-of-their-kind, patented, bond-building technology, which relinks the broken disulfide bonds caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage to the hair.
HAIR FOAM // Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam â€“ Always reach for this dry shampoo foam in between washes!
DRY SHAMPOO // Kerastase â€“ Fresh Affair Refreshing Dry Shampoo // First and foremost, the Kerastase dry shampoo smells HEAVENLY! I also love that it is lightweight, not sticky and works to instantly absorb oil with up to 24 hours of fragrance. It also contains Vitamin E to nourish your hair and scalp as it works!
HAIR PROTECTANT SPRAY // IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray // This is a miracle product for protecting your hair from heat!! I also love this leave-in product!!
HAIR GROWTH // Hum Hair Vitamins â€“ I take these gummies for healthy hair!
HAIR TOOL // T3 Curling Iron â€“ I have used this curling iron for over a year now and love how it creates the perfect curl in just one pass. When heated, the unique T3 Tourmaline and ceramic styling surface emits negative ions that seal the cuticle, eliminate frizz, and deliver shiny results that last.
BRUSHES // Sephora Collection Ready To Roll Brush Set â€“ This one is for all of you that have asked me for really good, affordable brushes!
BRUSH CLEANER // Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner â€“ You’ll literally be blown away by how clean this stuff gets your brushes!
