If you like to follow fashion and makeup trends, here is a “vital” piece of information: the trendiest color this year and especially this season is… EMERALD! If you are looking for what to wear as clothing or makeup for your next party, choose this color and you will be the star everywhere you go!

Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013

“Emerald is the color of energy, the color of possibility, the color of power! It’s also the color of radical modernism, where graphic (you will see this inspiration in the packaging look) shock meets the speed of modern life.”

Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013

Each year, the Pantone chart, world color authority, decides which specific color will be in the spotlight, and each year, Sephora creates a complete makeup collection featuring the Pantone color of the year: Sephora + Pantone Universe. I chose a couple of products that I like the most from this year’s collection to show you. So if you like emerald, you’re in the right place!

Emerald suits most people, and it gives a colorful twist to your look! The collection has everything you need to create the perfect makeup. Whether you prefer intense makeup looks or a subtle touch of color, you can wear emerald the way you want and you will always be trendy!

Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Glitter Strobe Eyeliner Set

Favorite product #1: the “Glitter Strobe Eyeliner Set”

This set is perfect for those who like to wear the emerald trend subtly, because you can wear a natural or neutral eyeshadow (beige, ivory, soft brown or soft pink for example), and add a touch of color with a thin emerald eyeliner. The result is amazing!

Glitter Strobe Eyeliner Set is a four-piece set of mini liquid eyeliners in striking emerald with multiple effects and finishes (shimmery, pearly, matte…). I love the pearly one, it gives a nice glow to your eye makeup.

Favorite product #2: the “Color Theory Shadow Block”

Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Color Theory Shadow Block Bionic

An eyeshadow trio, available in three harmonies, two warm and one cool (they all contain one shade of emerald), that enhances and intensifies the eyes with complementary tones. I love them, they are really pigmented.

I chose the cool version (I always choose cool versions… ;-) ), Bionic which features a nice silvery white, a deep royal blue and obviously, a rich emerald.

Its silky texture blends beautifully for added versatility. The water-resistant formula promises to stay put, without creases or smudging.
