My Extended Makeup Routine and Sephora Spring Bonus Sale!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Okay, maybe not, but it is time for Sephora's spring sale!! The sale is open to all Beauty Insiders (join for free here) and you can get 10-15% off depending on your Sephora status. Cue the squeals!! I always stock during Sephora's sales because makeup so rarely goes on sale, so it's a great time to repurchase some of my favorites as well as try new products.

The sale starts tomorrow and runs through Monday for VIB Rouge members, and then starts up again next weekend (the 20th through the 23rd) for VIB and Beauty Insiders, with VIB Rouge and VIB receiving 15% off and Beauty Insiders receiving 10% off.

Here are a few of the products I've got in my shopping cart:

Nars Lip Gloss in Super "O" - I tried this on in stores, and it's the prettiest shimmery peach color! I love the Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound, which I wear on the daily.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - I got a free sample of this primer, and you guys, it works. It's like glue on your eyelids - no worries about eye shadow moving around or creasing!

bareMinerals Original Foundation - I've always heard amazing things about bareMinerals but have never tried it. I'm thinking I'm going to start wearing foundation (really, I don't even own any!) because I'm starting to not be happy with my pores, but I'm not really into liquids. Plus this was one of the four that Sephora's skin match test would be a perfect match on me. So I'm going to give this a try! My color is (hopefully) Fairly Medium.

Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream - this is my favorite night cream. It's so thick and moisturizing, and it smells great too!

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara - my favorite for years now - it's great for lengthening and thickening!

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast - this is amazing for amping up my hair when I curl it - see my full hair routine here.

St. Tropez Express Bronzing Mousse - I loved the in-shower St. Tropez gradual tan lotion last summer, but my legs started having an allergic reaction to it! I'm hoping that this one won't bother my skin because I've heard amazing things about it. You're going to want the mitt too for easy application.

I also filmed a new makeup routine tutorial video for you because I've changed a few pieces of my makeup routine from my last video:
