Things We Love: Full Spectra Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora has teamed up with Pantone Universe to create the Full Spectra Eyeshadow Palette, which comes in “Day Break” and “Night Fall”… and we can’t say enough colorful things about it!  These palettes create a multidimensional eye look of harmonious shades and a unique color-shifting formula that alters depending on the angle of view and lighting. Each color family includes coordinated hues ideal for capturing a variety of looks, balanced with a slight pearlescent finish to provide depth and softness. The combination of esters, emollients, and vitamin E creates a soft and velvety texture that allows color to spread smoothly and evenly. Plus, these incredible palettes are free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates! We added both to our makeup bag :)

Skinny Tips: Inner “V” Eye Color

We often see eye color applied to the lash line, to the crease, and to the brow bone, but we love the idea of bringing these areas to life by adding a pop of color to the inner corner (or inner “V” due to the shape of the area) of the eye!  In particular, we love this look for the summer.  It is a fun and whimsical way to add color to your eyes! Try it with rose gold, pale blue, mint green, or silver to really turn up the volume!


Check out this simple tutorial that we found on The Wonder Forest, it breaks down an easy way to add color to the inner corner of your eye…

Skinny Tips: Eye Shadow Application Diagram

Eye shadow application can be a lot more complicated than it looks which is why we love this diagram that breaks down the best places to apply your shadow based on light to dark!


Just pick any color of the rainbow and choose variations of your favorite hue. Going for purple? Try Eggplant as your darkest shade, Plum as your medium shade, and lavender as your lightest. Or go Black to Grey to White. Or Olive to Mint. You choose! That’s the fun of it :)
