Must-Haves for the warmer months
This season it’s all about contouring, innovated hair styles, flirty lashes, and flawless skin while on the go. The new Sephora Collection Makeup Brushes, Tools And Accessories for Summer 2015 has all the tools, accessories and brushes you’ll need to achieve any beauty trend your little heart desires this summer. If you need help creating a fresh summer look, pop into your local Sephora for an array of beauty classes and complementary mini makeovers that teach and show you how to get the hottest looks of the season.
The collection features two different brush sets to suit your everyday needs and effortlessly helps you achieve endless amounts of looks. Sephora Collection Serpentine Skinny Brush Wrap helps to elevate your beauty routine on the go. It features 5 sleek, rose gold, essential brushes, powder brush, foundation brush, crease brush, shadow brush and liner, in a faux snakeskin pouch that’s perfect for traveling. Each brush is incredibly soft, picks up just the right amount of products and provides a seamless finish. It retails for $49.
Get The hottest hair looks this season with two hair kits, one for achieving the perfect braid and the other for chic updo, along with a thermal brush and a detangling comb. Sephora Collection The Art of the Braid Hair Kit reminds me just how much I miss my long hair. I remember the day when I could braid my hair, keeping me cool in the summer, now I just dream about it. This braid kit contains everything you need to master three different braids, from the fishtail, the waterfall and the braided updo, along with a step-by-step tutorial guide. Use the exclusive teasing hook to get a carefree, unkempt look that would be virtually impossible to achieve without it. It retails for $23.
Who wouldn’t want to detangle their hair with this hot pink Sephora Collection Pink Mini Tidy Travel Detangling Comb? It’s just too fun not to use. This mini wide spaced tooth comb is ideal for detangling and managing hair on the go, after the pool or even applying your favourite conditioner for even and easy application. For all my curly and wavy hair gals, this unique design manages hair without affecting the texture or tugging on the hair. It retails for $8.
Sephora Collection Purely Pure Organic Cotton Facial Pads are extremely luxurious, eco-friendly and some of the softest cotton pads I’ve used to date. I swear I go through cotton pads like water, they have so many uses in my beauty routine, that I consistently need hundreds on hand haha. A lot of the inexpensive ones I’ve tried in the past, end up falling apart or leaving white fluff on my face, that I promised myself I would stop buying the cheap ones. The main reason I use so many is I use them with my cleansing oil to remove makeup at the end of the day. These 100% natural and organic pads are so thick and dense that I actually end up using less of them. It retails for $10 for a box of 60.
It seems like I’m always on the hunt for my emery boards, partly because I usually buy the mini travel size ones and they end up getting lost. The new Sephora Collection In Good Shape Emery Boards come in a pack of 3 and are made with real emery grit and a flexible wood core, so it easily files the natural curve of your nail for better shaping and filing. The convenient three pack ensures I’ll never be without one again. It retails for $8.
Another beauty tool I can’t live without, makeup sponges. The Sephora Collection On the Wedge Multi-Coloured Sponges come with a unique, curved shape, soft and absorbent texture that are designed to fit and adjust to the natural contours of the face. It helps to achieve a flawless wet or dry application of both cream and liquid products. You can use these to apply your favourite foundation, blush, bronzer, contour or even highlights, plus these are just way more fun than your traditional white ones. It retails for $10 for 4 sponges.
The collection also has a variety of stunning makeup bags to hold all your belongings when travelling, or to store your brushes and tools while not in use, but my favourite would have to be the Sephora Collection Breakups to Makeup Bags, in three fun and sassy sayings. These travel friendly, canvas clutches are designed for those that are passionate about makeup and not afraid to show it. I have one of three that says “Losing you hurt, but losing my makeup bag would be a tragedy” I would have to agree. It also comes in “I would cry, but my mascara is designer” and “Life is short, wear more makeup” which I totally need to get my hands on. Each retail for $30.
Okay, I know these are not a brush, tool, or accessory, but I had to include them. Temporary body art designs and tattoos are all the range right now, but most of the ones I’ve seen look somewhat cheap. I’ve actually already worn a few of these designs and love each and every one. Sephora Collection Shine Beautifully Metallic Gold Temporary Tattoos are a set of gold metallic temporary tattoos in 17 different designs. They offer the shine of gold jewellery and the trendy appeal of tattoos without the commitment. It retails for $17 and probably my favourite item out of the new summer collection.
I don’t have any brushes to show you, but this season you can easily master the art of contouring with 8 different innovated and unique brushes that help you highlight, contour, and apply your foundation like a pro. Prices range from $30 upwards. There’s also a few other new luxurious extras, like a pore cleansing brush, tweezers, a cooling mask and a lash trio that would be fun to add to any collection.
