If you’re looking to learn something new about beauty, Sandra Diola is a girl worth getting to know. Not only has she tried every lip tint under the Floridian sun, subjected herself to a mashed potato-like face mask in the name of beauty, and given us hardcore jewellery envy, she’s also got the most heavenly collection of products we’ve seen in a while. Major swoon.
Before you devote yourself to an afternoon spent trawling her Instagram for a glimpse of her understated wardrobe, *perfect* hair, and otherworldly complexion, you’ll want to read about the products she’s unconditionally loyal to. Get amongst it!
Tata Harper Restorative Eye Crème
“This is my go-to when I’ve been studying all night. It brightens up my under-eye area, is super light and silky, and it only takes a little bit to make a huge difference. Some days I use it as a replacement for concealer, when I want my skin to just breathe a little for the day.”
Cle Cosmetics Melting Lip Powder in Hot Coco
“This, in the Hot Coco color, is the ideal dark nude-red tint that I didn’t know I needed until I tried it. It actually starts as a powder before ‘melting’ into my lips, and dries matte. It also lasts pretty much all day. Cle Cosmetics is doing some really cool things that mix a level of technology with beauty – I would definitely check out their other products.”
Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
“This stuff is like topical medicine for your face. It does some heavy-duty masking work that you can feel and see immediately. My friends and I joke that it looks like mashed potato, but trust me, it’s a different kind of heaven.”
Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint
“This is easily the best makeup 2-in-1 I’ve tried. My favorite is their Very Naughty color, and it’s perfect for when I want to sleep in a little more and not think too much about my makeup for the day, because it’s so easy to apply. It adds the perfect amount of natural color to my cheeks and lips.”
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Èclat
“I live in Florida, so this is a perfect concealer that won’t melt in the sun. It gives me the perfect amount of coverage.”
