I absolutely love these Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops! They are so easy to use. I just mix 3 drops with my night time moisturizer, rub it in really good and I wake up with the best glow! The more drops you use the deeper your tan. I also use a medium self tanner on my body and they match very well! This is also a clean beauty product so it won’t irritate sensitive or acne prone skin and is safe to use while pregnant!
This product is a clean skincare GAMECHANGER. If you are looking to get rid of any acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, texture, or are just looking for an incredible glow, you are going to want to grab this. I use this mask once a week and it has significantly improved my skin in terms of dark spots and always leaves my skin baby soft and looking brand new. Your makeup will apply flawlessly after using this! It’s pricey, which is why I always try to buy it when it’s on sale! I have an entire blog post dedicated to Babyfacial.
I hate that I buy expensive dry shampoo, and trust me, I have tried all the drugstore brands, but if you are a dark brunette like me and you are struggling to find a dry shampoo that doesn’t make you look like you have a gray scalp, then I highly recommend trying this. I usually apply this before bedtime, and the trick is to not spray it along your regular part. I will create a new temporary part close to my original part and spray it, and then work it towards my regular part with my fingers. There will still be a slight gray residue in your hair, but when you wake up it will be gone because your hair soaked it all up. I will then just spray a couple of touch ups throughout my hair and use my fingers to work it through. It also gives you hair major just-got-a-blow-out volume and smells so fresh and clean!
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Child Star” & Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Pencil in “Pillow Talk”
This has been my favorite nude pink lip combo for a while now! The Pillow Talk liner is such a versatile shade you can wear underneath any type of nude lipstick. I love it with Child Star because it is just a little bit darker to create some definition on my lips. Because Child Star is a very drying lipstick i would highly recommend wearing a hydrating base on your lips underneath it. My favorite is MAC Prep + Prime. It also prevents your lips from getting wrinkled!
This is one of those products I don’t know how I ever lived without. You apply it generously before bed and when you wake up your lips are so soft and plump! Seriously, they can be so dry and cracked before bed and when you wake up it’s insane. Sometimes I wear this as a gloss during the day time. You just have to use a little bit! I have a couple blog posts featuring this lip mask.

Hourglass has become one of my favorite makeup brands for face products. As someone with oily skin I never thought I would ever be able to achieve that lit-from-within look without looking like a greaseball. However, Hourglass makes that happen! It has photo technology in it that makes your skin look flawless in the light. I use the middle shade “Incandesent Light” under my eyes after I apply Tarte Shape Tape. It makes that area glow so beautifully and feels like you have nothing on. I will use “Dim Light” allover my face once my makeup is finished to give a light glow, and sometimes when I don’t feel like using a heavier bronzer I will apply “Radiant Light” for the lightest sunlit glow. Seriously, this palette makes you look like you’ve been at a beach. If you only picked up one product from this sale, this would be it. You’ll use it all summer long!!
I’ve been using this cleansing balm to remove my makeup for at least 2 years now. It’s the only product I’ve tried that gently removes ALL my makeup. This jar will last me about 3 months and I wear makeup about 5 days a week. I have a blog post on this balm!
I have never been good at putting on eye liner, but these pencils make it so easy! They are ultra creamy and super pigmented. They will last all day long! I use their brown tone “Double Life” most days, but I need to pick up their black!
Another Hourglass favorite! If you’re looking for a light bronzer that gives you a sun kissed glow, you’d love this one. I use the shade “Nude Bronze Light”. It doesn’t have any orange tones in it, and it looks amazing on every skin tone. I use this when I’m pale, self-tanned, and actual tan! It’s a little pricey for a bronzer, but once you experience an Hourglass face product, you understand that it’s worth it!
An oldie eyeshadow palette, but it’s my favorite for this time of year. Glowing skin mixed with a shimmery eye look is my favorite look for Spring and Summer. I love this palette because the shades look so amazing on sun kissed skin. I don’t like heavy eye makeup, and as you can see the shadows aren’t super dark. I prefer my shadow to give a more natural color payoff. If that makes sense?
What will you be picking up during the sale?
