10 Summer Beauty Favorites From a Sephora Beauty Advisor

Sephora is a beauty product haven for any product junky. There are aisles and aisles of products to roam through, with no counter clerk pressure.  You are free to peruse around the store and try on as many products as you want for as long as your little heart desires.

A couple of years ago Sephora promoted a select few of their employees to come on as Beauty Advisors for their stores. Their job is to give clients that extra bit of attention we all need when shopping for new products. You can book a consultation with a beauty advisor  (with a minimum $125 purchase) for an updated look, along with notes to take home and practice on yourself.  They can also show you something as simple as the proper way to fill in your brows. Whatever your beauty needs, the advisors are there to help out.

I met Robert Nunez, a Sephora Beauty Advisor, several years ago when we bonded over Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in the aisles of Sephora. Robert is one of the most talented makeup artists I know, not to mention one of the sweetest most genuine people I have ever met. We have stayed friends through the years and I have watched him flourish as a makeup artist. I can always count on him to freshen up my look when I’m in a beauty rut. I asked Robert to share 10 personal summer beauty favorites and a pro tip on how to use each one.  When you’re done reading this you are going to start applying your makeup like a pro. Check out Robert’s website.  It is full of his incredible work.
