THE NO MAKEUP MAKEUP LOOK
Ladies, if there’s ONE line you need to treat yourself to this year it’s THIS No Makeup Makeup Line from Perricone. It’s honestly one of the best cosmetics I’ve tried all year and the best part is that it’s got all your good skincare as well. Consider it this way, customize, blend, and enhance your best features with this easy to use line, especially the foundation serum. Plus it’s good for your skin, perfect for summer, and doesn’t melt in the heat! TREAT YOSELF!
Foundation brushes: There are hundreds of foundation brushes on the market all of which create different effects and finishes, you don’t need all of them but a good foundation and concealer brush are always handy to have (plus they can be used to apply a multitude of products!)
I forgot to post this up last week xD. For awhile I was addicted to playing Ragnarok Online again for the first time since high school. I have a few characters, but I always flit between a swordsman or a mage.
Anyway, I drew inspiration from a running joke I always tell everyone, about how I spend hours just customizing the way my characters look. Honestly, what’s the point playing a character…
Improved my koi tattoo practice from last year (I followed a pic I saw online). This time with more vibrant colors ^____^. Gotta step up my game! I used mostly @bhcosmetics #120palette1stedition for the Colts and then used @nyxcosmetics jumbo pencils in #electricblue and #milk to do the water. #koitattoo #makeup #nyxcosmetics #jumboeyepencil #bhcosmetics #faketattoo
SPOT IT: SEPHORA COLLECTION LUSTER MATTE LIP COLORS
We love this innovative lip-color hybrid so much we could kiss it.
If you’re like us, you’ve got a designated lip look for every time, place, and mood swing. That’s why we’re so amped about the new SEPHORA COLLECTION Luster Matte line. This inventive lip gloss-meets-lipstick hybrid uses matte pigments in a liquid format to create saturated, lustrous colors. With 12 shades to choose from, you can bet your last buck we’ll be buying them all. BECKY PEDERSON
Lightweight and long wear, this powerful pop of color gives off the sheen—but not the shine—of a gloss.
Rosehip seed oil nourishes and hydrates, so lips aren’t left with that dry, sticky, uncomfortable feeling sometimes associated with long-wearing lipsticks.
Swipe the applicator tip along your lip to line and define. Then use flat side to fill in. The final effect is like you’ve paired your favorite lipstick with a subtle layer of soft gloss. Basically, dream lips!
Was inspired by #ThePorefessional by benefitcosmetics. I love this cute packaging so much!

TRENDING NOW: LO-FI AND HIGH VOLT NAILS
How Sephora brings the hottest summer nail looks before anyone else.
At Sephora, we keep an expertly-manicured finger on the pulse of beauty trends. Right now, we can’t keep our hands off the endlessly inspiring polishes currently decorating our office shelves. The Sephora Glossy caught up with Jennifer Lucchese, Director of Merchandising—Color, and Sydney Feeter, Assistant Buyer—Nails, to get the inside scoop on nail trends everyone will be sporting by summer. BECKY PEDERSON
We’ve named two trends this summer, High Volt and Lo-Fi. What’s the difference?
Jennifer Lucchese: High Volt is like an exotic vacation at your fingertips. It’s inspired by the bold, colorful fabrics we kept seeing on runways. We focused on fluorescents and candy-colored lacquers. Think tropical summer getaways and nights in Ibiza!
Sydney Feeter: Lo-Fi is the perfect contrast. It’s all about warm, sandy beaches and relaxing summer days—lots of washed out nudes and sun-bleached tints. It really captures the feel of an Instagram filter.
How did you pinpoint these looks?
JL: Trend-finding definitely comes from a huge variety of places. We read tons of blogs, watch the runways at Fashion Week, talk to brands, and of course, check out what people are wearing on the street.
Any brands in particular?
SF: Formula X does a great job of not only spotting trends but creating them as well. They always bring us the newest, coolest ideas and products. And Deborah Lippmann is a guru when it comes to the next big thing. She’s always backstage at Fashion Week, awards shows, music videos…she’s a wealth of trendy knowledge!
We already can’t wait for next season! Any clues as to what fall nails will look like?
JL: Well, without giving too much away…be on the lookout for an amazing new collection from Formula X with silky, matte finish metallics!
