THE TIP-OFF: STANDOUT EYES WITH REFINERY29
Refinery29 Beauty Director Annie Tomlin on where to wear the White Shimmer 1 eye look, created here by SEPHORA PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz.
“This look takes neutrals out of been-there-done-that territory, thanks to the contouring of the shadow. The application technique creates drama, and the shimmer creates dimension. It shows that you care about looking polished, but it doesn’t try too hard.”
Annie Tomlin, Refinery29 Beauty Director
Easy how to color combos!!! Be brave! Experiment!!! Your homework:
Pick two eye looks. One that you love and one that you hate. Recreate both. Take pics and post. Did you end up changing your mind on the one you hated? If not, what would you change? Why did you choose the one you loved? Did it look like you expected?
First Impressions of Sephora +Pantone Universe Colorbyte Lip Wand in Crocus. LOVE this packaging, very different and fun, though I think it might be a tad troublesome when you come toward the end of the tube. The applicator seemed nice too, though not really nice if you have larger lips (a problem i don’t suffer from haha). The formula felt slick and non sticky, though I didn’t really get a chance to try it out on my lips. I believe these will be sold in a set and will have swatches of the others up shortly. #valerievanity #bbloggers #lipgloss #sephora
We are obsessed with Sarah Chambers Makeup Design ‘s mind-blowing Aurora Borealis inspired lips! She created this epic masterpiece using entirely Sugarpill eyeshadows (dying to see a tutorial!) topped off with EyeKandy glitter. Too amazing!

First Impressions of Sephora + Pantone Universe Graphic Lift Liquid Eyeliner in Emerald. I LOVED THIS. Another item that I’ll be picking up ASAP. Kind of your average felt tipped applicator, that had a nice amount of flex. The formula was a tiny bit sheerer than most would probably like, if using just the liner I’d suggest layering it twice. The way I’ve seen this demonstrated at work is you draw your liner with a regular emerald green liner pencil and then crisp up the line and add more punch with this. I’m loving all of the emerald for this years Pantone collection! #valerievanity #bbloggers #nofilter #sephora
