2. // Sigma Beauty 'The Power Pair' // Sigma Beauty is my favorite brand to get makeup brushes from, they are the same quality, maybe even better than MAC. The Kabuki Brush in this set is amazing it is perfect for buffing in any foundation and the cleaning mat is the perfect tool to clean it with. This mat is how to get your brushes so clean they feel brand new after every wash!

They are a little pricey for treatments but you get so much product and a little goes a long way, so in the end they are pretty reasonably priced compared to similar products. 

6. // Beautyblender 'Beauty's Best Friend' Set // I bought my first beauty blender during the anniversary sale last year and i don't think i will ever go back to using a foundation brush again. it its so important to wash it after every use topruduct doest build up in the sponge, They Solid wash in the set is the best way to clean your Beauty blender. it will remove all the make up with out breaking down the sponge

7. // NARS 'Nordstrom's Best' Cheek Pallet // This is one of the most beautiful pallets I have ever seen! I love NARS products! This pallet comes with their best 4 blushes, and their most popular highlighter and bronzer, it might be the best item in the sale.

8. // Evian Facial Water Spray // I uses this mist every morning and night! After I finish my makeup just before I put mascara on I mist this on my face to get rid of the powdery look, and make my makeup look more like skin and at night after I wash my face I use it to add back some moisture and prep my skin for my skincare products. I also love to use this during and after long flights to help combat the damage done by the recycled air. 

9. // Living Proof 'Perfect Hair Day' Set // I love this shampoo and conditioner, it really helps set your hair up for the perfect hair day! I recently tried the dry shampoo and was very impressed, I usually prefer powder over aerosol but this was just as good at my favorite powder formula.
