UNCONVENTIONAL COLORS! THIS WEEK ITS SUNDAY AT SEPHORA!

UNCONVENTIONAL COLORS! THIS WEEK ITS SUNDAY AT SEPHORA!

Every Saturday, Kate brings you the best of Sephora as only an insider can!

You should be so proud of me. I’ve been branching out. One of my Sephora co-workers (cough Ashley cough) always makes fun of me for wearing brown eyeshadow. “But I’m lazy!” I protest. Its easy to smear brown on and it still look decent when you’re tired or hung over or whatever. But I’ve been inspired but some of the fabulous colors I’ve been immersing myself lately. And really opening up to the world of color!

Firstly, I want you all to try this stunning color combination on your eyes (inspired by a MAC palette). But I imagine that most of you have something VERY similar to at least two or three of the four colors. And then one to shop for. First you want a light pearl color like Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl (maybe with less glitter). Then you want a Stila Wheat and a yellow or a gold like Cargo Oz or Makeup Forever Yellow #2. Then you want a snazzy navy like the new Smashbox in Ink or Sephora Brand Pearl #5. Wheat all over. Gold/Yellow on the lid. Navy in the crease and as a liner with the pearl to highlight. Its so naughty-nautical. It can be punched up dramatic for night time or very sedate for work and play!

Second. Bright. Lips. It’s my new favorite thing. Obviously, I love brown and BRONZE eyes for the summer with sleek black liner and lots of waterproof mascara. But Coral or Pink or Orange-Red lips are a greay juicy punch.

Pink: Smashbox Liner in Caffe Latta. DiorRouge #880 lipstick. It’s bright but its fabulous.
Coral: Smashbox Lipstick in Beautiful with their Limited Edition Gloss in Red Rock.
Orange: Cargo PlantLove Lipstick in Evangeline with DiorKiss Gloss in Spicy Guava on top!
