I am so excited about today’s blog post with Sephora! I’ve said this before but one of the best perks of working with Sephora has been the access to so many good products. Sephora has an incredible assortment of clean color cosmetics and today I am going to share three of my favorites. Use them together or separate, either way they will leave you golden and GLOWING.
Whether you are looking for everyday effortless beauty or something more trend-based, Sephora has you covered. We have talked about this before but as a general rule, I try to be 80/20 with my beauty routine (80% clean products). Makeup has (for me personally) been one of the trickier categories to go fully clean in. There’s been so much advancement in clean skincare but makeup has taken longer (in my experience!) to catch up. I love clean beauty but I hate feeling like I’m sacrificing wear, results, color pay-off, etc. You don’t have to worry about that with these 3 products. Great payoff and performance, but they’re also packed with good-for-you ingredients. Lastly: we’ve talked about this before too but I LOVE how easy it is to spot clean products by looking for the green Clean Beauty Seal!

Three Clean Makeup Products I LOVE right now
Can I start by saying that I am just so thrilled that Sephora has started carrying Saie? If you’re a long time reader, you know how much I adore this brand. Their products are for those of us who want to just look glowy and radiant but not done up (like maybe we casually hiked 8 miles that morning, and also just happen to have long thick dark lashes that don’t require mascara?)
The Super Glowy Gel is SUCH a pretty product, perfect if you are looking for that lit from within glow. It’s made from 75% water. Other key ingredients include plant-derived glycerin (helps increase skin’s moisture levels), Vitamin C to brighten, and Rose Hip Seed Oil (a powerful antioxidant that also helps to brighten and moisturize).
I am a maximalist when it comes to glow so my favorite way to use it is to take 1-2 pumps and spread it all over my entire face after moisturizing. You can use a beauty blender or just use your fingers! It comes in two shades (I usually do the lighter one but the bronze one is v pretty on vacation or when I am tan) and you can wear it over or under makeup or all by itself.
Westman Atelier is another brand that has taken the beauty world by storm this year. Gucci Westman is of course the gold standard when it comes to makeup artistry. This highlight is so pretty – I learned how to use it by watching this IGTV that Gucci filmed.
I love how easy this is to apply. It is a cream formula and you can use it everywhere: eyes, cheeks, face. It glides on beautifully with a brush but I actually prefer to use my fingertips. I’m wearing the Peau de Soliel color which is a beautiful warm gold/bronze… perfect for summer!
As with all of Westman Atelier’s products it is also packed with amazing ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid to boost moisture, Jojoba Seed Oil to improves hydration and strengthens skin’s moisture barrier, and Caper Extract to soothe, calm, and reduce the appearance of redness.
I am so happy that lip gloss is considered fashionable again as I just could not get behind the matte lips trend! I LOVE this gloss. It’s super hydrating and moisturizing and definitely helps to plump up the lips and make them look bigger. It’s not dramatic or over the top but it’s definitely noticeable. I will also say that a lot of plumping glosses I’ve tried can be very drying and that is just NOT the case with this one.
- The brand’s proprietary MAXI-LIP™: Clinically shown to visibly increase lip volume by 40 percent and decrease the look of wrinkles by 29 percent.
- Shea butter and Rosehip oil to hydrate, soothe, and soften.
