Sephora.com has several items in their sale section that make Friday shopping fun! Philosophy scents in Apple, Lemonade, and Mint are 15-25% off, while Becca products are being phased out and thus deeply discounted (hurry, stock is being depleted fast!). Sephora seems to be phasing out several of their Sephora brushes (or at least old-styled brushes), so you can get them on the cheap, too. Find sale items quick by typing in “sale” in Sephora’s search box!

How do you choose what makeup to wear? What’s your basis or formula for choosing what products to wear or colors to use when you go to do your makeup?
I always base it on what I’m planning to wear, which I decide at random. I have to match–I’m compulsive like that.
This tutorial will walk you through, step-by-step, on how to apply liquid foundation, powder, contour, blush, and highlighting for a semi-dewy face. You may want to peruse my red lips tutorial, as well as brow tutorial. Also, I have done a few face tutorials in the past (you can never have too many, right?): glowy cheeks, and my original face tutorial.
Do let me know what you think, and if this was helpful! (Now, back to studying!) And if you have a TeamSugar account, make sure to show us some love!

Estee Lauder DayWear Plus ($38.00)
More than moisture. More than protection. DayWear Plus actively shields skin from the multiple assaults of the environment to help prevent lines before they appear — so your skin looks younger longer. The secret? An active response anti-oxidant system with a powerful blend of new and natural ingredients. A skin-friendly UVA/UVB screen you can wear AM and PM. An advanced dual moisture system to keep skin feeling moist and healthy. Lightweight, oil-free creme. Dermatologist-, Ophthalmologist-tested. Apply AM and PM after cleansing, and after applying your Repair Serum.
What makes it worth it: Oh my goodness, I fell in love with this rich moisturizer as soon as I put on my first application of it in the morning! It is a luxuriously thick cream that dries quickly and leaves skin feeling incredibly smooth and hydrated. The scent reminds me of cucumbers and cool days, I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s a subtle scent, so it’s perfect for a facial moisturizer. I just honestly felt like I was pampering my skin with this product, and I will definitely be adding this to my list of staples. A little goes a long way, which as I always say, is most excellent. Oh, what else? It contains SPF15, which is an essential item you need for your daily regimen.
Why you might pass on it: None! Buy it today. I adore this, and I can’t think of a single reason not to at least check it out and try out the texture for yourself. The price is the only thing that could sway you, but I imagine one container will last me at least a month of use, so I’ll fork over the money for this lovely addition.
Find this product at Estee Lauder locations, www.esteelauder.com, and www.nordstrom.com.
