Sephora 20% Off SALE | My Recommendations and Wish List

Hi loves, It’s that time of year again! Sephora is having their 20% off sale and it’s time to take advantage of it! These are the products I would  recommend and a few products that I have on my wish list.


I have definitely mentioned this product before but it’s by far my favorite hairspray. It holds my hairstyle and gives it a lot of texture. I highly recommend the Quai Texturizing Spray.

My favorite quick-drying brush cleaner has always been the Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner ever since I was attending makeup school. I use it daily, whether it’s for my personal brushes or my clients brushes. It not only disinfects the brushes but it dries super fast and has a great scent. The 32oz bottle is worth getting during the sale, especially since it lasts a long time.



The Sephora sale is a perfect time to purchase your essentials, especially skin care. My daily cleanser that I have been using and LOVING is the Philosohpy Purity Made Simple Cleanser. It is for all skin types and is a great first step to my skin care routine.


The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder is a great light-weight loose powder that leaves the skin looking and feeling soft.


I can’t recommend this foundation enough! If you are looking for a long lasting, light weight, oil-free foundation the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is what you are looking for. This is my every-day foundation. I LOVE the longevity of it, the color range and flawless look it gives.

No matter what people say, the Beauty Blender IS the best foundation/concealer sponge.  I have tried many other sponges from other companies but I have always gone back to the original beauty blender. I love the flawless finish it gives and how easily it blends everything together.


Now, onto a few items on my wishlist. A couple months ago I came across the Dior Nude Air Luminizer Powder in shade “Nude Glow” and I have been obsessed. It’s such a beautiful radiant highlighter that appears to look great on all skin tones.


I have been admiring the Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette ever since I used it on @NicoleWhitford. The formula of the shadows are super buttery and blend so well. The matte shades of warm peachy, buttery cream and rich browns compliment each other perfectly.


Last but not least, a product that I still have yet to get my hands on and try is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. I have heard such great things about this product. It’s great for prepping the skin as well as setting your makeup, leaving it look fresh all day.


Those were a few products that I would recommend and a couple products on my wishlist for the fall Sephora sale. Hope you enjoyed!

NEW SERVICES | Eyelash Lift & Tints

Lately I have felt the need to do more, and be more successful. For a long time I knew I wanted to add more services to “Hayley Dawn Beauty” but didn’t know where to start. Hair cuts and colors might be in the future but I wanted to add something NOW. Knowing myself, I knew I wouldn’t have the patience to be an eyelash extension technician so I did my research and decided to enroll myself in the next best thing…

I am so very excited to announce that I am officially a certified eyelash lift and tint technician!

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is a procedure that is done to curl the eyelashes, achieved using a series of gentle treatments to attain a natural looking curl and lift to your natural lashes.

Benefits from an eyelash lift?

This process is used to change the texture and structure of your natural lashes. A lash lift is a great way to add length without the hassle of extensions. Less maintenance and it lasts between 6-8 weeks.

What is a lash tint?

Eyelash tint is a form of hair dye developed for specific use on the eyelashes.

Benefits from an eyelash tint?

Eyelash tinting produces a similar effect to mascara. It visibly lengthens, darkens and thickens the appearance of your natural lashes without smudging or rubbing off.

Full Face of Affordable Products | Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products

A lot of us know that makeup can be expensive. Shop at Sephora and your bill can rack up pretty quickly… That’s why I’m here to share with you my favorite drugstore and affordable makeup products that I use. From face, eyes and lips, these are my favorite products.


Starting off with the face. My personal favorite foundation from the drugstore is the Maybelline Fit-Me foundation. They have an amazing color range and have a foundation for each skin-type, from oily to dry skin. I personally use the Matte finish.

Since I discovered the NYX HD Wand Concealer I haven’t used another drugstore concealer. I would say it’s similar to the Mac Pro Longwear concealer. It is medium-full coverage and the shade “porcelain” is the perfect shade for me. (It’s also great to use as an eye primer).



To set my base in place to ensure it lasts all day I like to finish it off with the Rimmell London Stay Matte Pressed Powder. Using the shade “transparent”, it adds a little bit of coverage and doesn’t oxidize on my skin.  It keeps my t-zone matte, doesn’t make my foundation cakey and creates a flawless look.



Finding a good affordable blush and bronzer was key for me. They’re one of my favorite makeup products that I use daily. The NYX Matte Bronzer has been one of my favorite products lately. The formula is super pigmented and blends out so well. For blush, LA Girl recently came out with 16 different shades and they are all amazing with a mixture of matte and some with a sheen. My personal favorite is the shade “just playful”.




It can be hard to find a good, affordable eye shadow formula but Morphe Brushes has nailed it. Their products can’t be found in the drugstore but their prices are great! They have so many eye shadow palettes with a variety of colors. Their formula is creamy, pigmented and blends like a dream.



Eyebrows are a major feature to the face. They frame the face and can transform every face shape. The NYX Micro Brow Pencil is a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills. The product glides on smoothly and the brush on the back blends it out for a soft look.



Last but not least… LIPS! It’s safe to say I have found my holy grail lip product. I’m not one to wear lipstick often but when I do this is what I’m wearing. Believe it or not it’s a lip liner. The True Fiction Lip Liner Pencils are amazing! They’re super creamy and stay on the lips for such a long time. The shade “nude” is my perfect every-day lip color.



So, there you have it. My favorite affordable makeup products. Hope you are able to try some out and enjoy them as much as I do. Thank you for the read! Until next time.
