If you are a makeup junkie like me than Sephora is your Mecca. But, with endless rows of sparkly cosmetics and bright lights, I have to confess, I totally understand how one can become overstimulated, overwhelmed, and then shut down and retreat from the store without buying anything at all.

I want to help you navigate the successions of makeup and make a purchase! HourGlass Cosmetics is one of my new favorites! The next time you pass by a Sephora, put on a pair of horse blinders and head right for their brand’s section.

HourGlass Cosmetics is cruelty-free and does what makeup should do – enhance and improve your natural appearance. Here are a few of the products I’ve found I can’t do without!


$22.00 – $65.00

The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer was my first introduction to this luxury brand. Veil provides just that – a veil that corrects skin tone, evens imperfections, and preps the skin for foundation. I absolutely love the smooth finish this primer helps to create. This isn’t just for being camera-ready, you’ll fall in love with the clean canvas this primer creates everyday!


$20.00 – $75.00

Nº 28 PRIMER SERUM is the perfect primer for the dry winter months or for anyone looking to create a dewy finish. This primer is a touch different than it’s veil counterpart. It still provides an adhering layer between your skin and foundation, but the glossy serum consistency gives foundations a little extra glow. This might not be the product for you if you’re looking for a matte finish. But, I love it this time of year when my skin is starting to look like my old leather leggings.



I always keep the VANISH FLASH HIGHLIGHTING STICK in Pink Flash in my purse. In the middle of the day or out to dinner at night, I can always use a little extra glow! This highlighter gives me just the right amount of rosy sheen. There are four other colors to suit your skin tone. I can honestly tell you when I wear it, women ask what the luminous sheen is on my cheeks.



Nº 28™ Lip Treatment Oil is like silky therapy for your lips that is not only anti-aging but also super luscious. The gorgeous gold-tipped lip treatment provides a shiny yet subtle touch of color, plumping lips to maximum sex appeal. Try it under and over your favorite matte lipstick for added dimension AND conditioning benefits.



Six different shades of Ambient Lighting Finishing Powder offer all skin tones the benefit of a perfectly lit room. If you’re looking for moonlight or candlelight, HourGlass Cosmetics shines your ideal light on you, giving your skin a radiance of its own. (Which of course you have glowing from within already! :-))
