It’s about to be November in just a few blinks and then whoosh – the holidays are upon us! If I’m ahead of the game, which is a rare thing, I try to get a lot of my holiday shopping done earlier in the year and especially when there are awesome sales. Right now Sephora is having a fabulous sale for beauty Insiders – so I’m going to walk you through some Sephora must haves, either for yourself (because you deserve it) or for holiday shopping.
Not a Sephora beauty insider? You can sign up for free online and earn 15-20% off your purchase now! The way it works is once you spend a minimum of $350 on Sephora products after signing up, your Beauty Insider membership will be elevated to the VIB level. If you reach a $1,000 spend amount, you’ll automatically be bumped into the Rouge membership pool (AKA where free custom makeovers, access to invite-only events, and the best year-round Sephora deals live). I’m a total beauty addict/fomo on new products so you betcha I’m a member – and I love the perks of the membership!

Eye Shadow Palettes
Some of my best purchases are eye shadow palettes – they’re so much fun to play with and experiment with new colors/combinations. They last forrevverr and also make fabulous gifts!
Skincare Gift Sets
Skincare gifts whether they be masks, moisturizers, etc., are amazing gifts. Who doesn’t want to give the gift of fresh skin? All of these sets are lovely at refreshing, hydrating, lifting, clarifying, and/or rejuvenating.
Skincare and Haircare Tools
You’re all probably rolling your eyes at my for including this insanely expensive hair dryer – but I’m telling you it’s worth every penny. I’ve had mine for over a year and I swear by it – even when I had three feet of hair. Trust me, there is no better time to buy it than when these insider sales are taking place. I also really love the GloPro listed here, it does wonders of cell turnover and youthful skin. Just make certain to cleanse it properly to avoid spreading microbes across your skin.
All Things Lips
I’m a diehard fan of classic red lips or a dramatic lip. These are all either fantastic color sets or my favorite way of hydrating my lips at night.
