Sephora Favorites

The best beauty and skincare products at Sephora right now.

Today I wanted to share some beauty + makeup products I’ve been loving lately from Sephora!

These are things I gravitate more towards when I’m doing my make-up, getting ready for the day or when I’m applying my skincare routines. Since I’ve had a bit more time on my hands lately to try these out, I thought you may want to do the same.

Here’s what I’m loving…

Cream Bronzer

This bronzer is the perfect shade for me—and a little goes a long way. I think it’s the perfect spring into summer bronzer!! It’s also great for contouring!

Glowscreen SPF40 Sunscreen

This is one of my favorite brands for sunscreen and skin protection!! I apply it as the very last step in my morning skincare routine for a light tint and glow… but with all the protection! It’s a perfect primer to go under your make-up.

GOOPGlow Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator

You won’t believe how good this exfoliator is! I think it’s a new product but I’ve been using this in my skincare routine a lot more lately… about 2-3x a week… and it makes my skin so much softer and smoother for days.

Drunk Elephant Resurfacing Duo

I love these two products together! I do a pump of each and combine them together in the palm of my hand before applying! Super hydrating and perfect to apply at night! 

Buff Blend Brush

Do you like to apply your foundation with a beauty blender or brush?! I’m a brush girl—always have been, always will be—but this brush is perfect for buffing out your foundation nice and smoothly. I love it! 

Pumpkin Enzyme Dermal Resurfacing Mask

A facial mask I’m loving right now is this pumpkin enzyme resurfacing mask. I have very dry and textured skin at times so I need this every once in a while to just scrub away all the dead skin and dullness. It works miracles to resurface the skin and is quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to masks. 

Tatcha Lip Mask

Have you ever tried a lip mask? If not, this is THE ONE to fall in love with. It doesn’t get too sticky but it’s thick enough that it lasts a long time. It’s a definite must first thing the morning and before going bed for a perfectly hydrated, glossy lip! 

Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner Set

I’ve been using this shampoo for a few weeks now and really love it. Not only does it smell amazing but my hair looks and feels so strong and healthy! This set actually comes with a hair perfume/mist—which, yep, also smells sooo good!! I spray this in my hair after I get out of the shower if I DIDN’T wash my hair (because I only wash my hair about once a week) and it gives me a good after-shower smell for my hair.

Marc Jacobs Coconut Gel Highlighter + Primer

I’ve been wanting to try these for over a year and never gave in until now—and I’m SO glad I did. If you love a dewy hydrated + highlighted look, then these are perfect!! Especially for spring and summer for a natural glow. 

Double Ended Liquid Eyeliner + Pencil

A little confession: I’m not that great at putting on eyeliner. That’s why this eyeliner is perfect for me. First I apply it using the roll-up applicator end; then I go in and make a clean line with the liquid side! It doesn’t smear or fade all day long!! Definitely highly recommended!

Fenty Beauty Eyeshadow Palette

This is absolutely the most used palette for me!! I love it so much. I use every shade in the palette because it truly has all the shades I love to wear for almost any occasion! Plus, it’s perfect for travel as well since it’s super small to fit in any make-up bag.

Small Slipsilk Scrunchies

I love these hair ties for three reasons: they hold your hair in tight, without slipping down or getting loose; they also hold a bun in place effortlessly; and finally, when your hair is straight they don’t leave a crease at all! I use them every night to keep my hair in place without feeling like it’s being pulled too tightly from a rubberband.

Whirl Trio Wand

Love this wand! I typically stick with the 1″ barrel for a perfect loose curl or wave and it’s been my favorite for the past couple of years.

Better Than Sex Mascara

I am OBSESSED with this mascara, I love it so much. The brush completely fans out all the lashes so they don’t clump together at all. It makes them look effortlessly dramatic, which is perfect especially on a night out. 

All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

This is my all-time favorite setting spray because it WORKS. If you want your makeup to stay in place all day and night… this is the one!

Jet Lag Mask

I’ve been using this mask for a couple of years now as my go-to. It has everything you need in it to make your skin vibrant, healthy and beautiful.

Who’s Ready For My BEST Online Shopping Tips?

People have been asking me a lot lately why I decided to start my blog back in November.

One of the (many) reasons I started All About Ashli is because I absolutely LOVE TO SHOP… and I really wanted to share the things that I buy, the products I’m interested in and everything I’m loving in the moment with you all!

I’ve always loved to shop- there’s no hiding that– and after my (many) years of online shopping, I really wanted a place to share my best tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way, especially because I know there are still people out there that hate online shopping.

For those that just prefer to go out and look for things- that’s totally fine and understandable… but for those of you that hesitate at times about buying things online (but have always wanted to) here are some of the tips that I live by when shopping online… and hopefully they will help you feel better about it too!

Know Your Sizes + Measurements
Knowing your size will really help when searching online for a piece of clothing because you will be able to reference the “size guide” tool on each website. Of all the different measurements we can take, you should typically know your bust size, waist, and hips. Knowing mine makes it really easy to find my size at any place I’m shopping even though most stores have different sizing options. I know, it can get a bit confusing… the good news? If you know those sizes beforehand it makes it a lot easier to find the perfect pair of jeans or top from any store!

Subscribe to Your Favorite Store’s Email List
When you do this, you’re officially on the inside! Now you’ll get discount codes and coupons before anyone else! I quickly jump on to see what I can grab before those items sell out, but another perk is that when you are on their email list, you usually know before other shoppers do about all sales and discounts… #winning!

Know Where Your Items Are Coming From
Like I’ve said already, I have learned A LOT from online shopping… and one of those things is to really know where your items and clothes are coming from. IT’S ALL ABOUT QUALITY! You may think something looks great on Instagram so you go to the random boutique and buy it… but after you get it (many weeks later because it might be coming from overseas) it looks absolutely nothing like what the model had on! Now don’t get me wrong, there are some really great overseas stores that I DO shop at… but I know (from trial + error) that these are quality pieces. In the end, you really just have to do your research on stores + remember you almost always get what you pay for!

Know What You’re Going Online to Shop for in the First Place
If you don’t know exactly what you’re going online to shop for you’ll likely end up a little overwhelmed… or you may go crazy and end up buying things you don’t even need- and then, of course, never wear any of it! To stop this, I always have a list of things I feel that I want to add to my wardrobe and then take the time to look for that specific thing. Otherwise, I know for sure I would waste tons of time looking at everything there is online!

Consider All of Your Options
You never know if another store is going to have the same style for a better deal. Once you find something you like, take the time to compare + shop around. It may take a few extra clicks, but it’s always good to do your research before settling for something you could get a better deal on somewhere else!
