Learn how to create three high-impact looks in three minutes or less.
Look on the bright side with energizing pops of color. Consider these bold, easy-to-master looks the starting line for a season of striking. RENEE TRILIVAS
THE LOOK: Turquoise Underliner
TRY: Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in (Intro)Vert. Slick meets stick in this layerable pencil that draws on infinite custom-color combinations.
DO IT IN…30 SECONDS: Using your ring finger, gently pull your under-eye area to fully expose the waterlines and sketch a gel pencil onto them. Press on a matching powder shadow to prolong wear and prevent fading.
TIP: Finish the look with a rich black mascara to make the color stand out.
THE LOOK: Cobalt Cat Eye
TRY: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Cobalt. Draw the perfect, vivid cat eye with concentrated shocks of quick-dry, long-wear color.
DO IT IN…1 MINUTE: With your eyes open and head tilted back, drag the marker along your lash lines, extending the line slightly past the outer corners. Connect the tails to the center of the lash lines, forming a long triangle, and fill in the shape for a flicked look. Layer the color to build the line to your desired thickness.
TIP: To ensure clean, symmetrical lines, rest your elbow on a countertop to steady your hand.
THE LOOK: Fuchsia Accented Eye
TRY: Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet. This budge-proof pencil creates a creamy matte base for playful color.
+ SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Eyeliner 24HR Waterproof in Love Song. Twenty-four-hour wear in one stroke. Flick on bright shades that withstand water, heat, and humidity.
DO IT IN…3 MINUTES: Drag a black pencil liner along the waterlines, then glide the same liner along the top lash lines, winging it out towards the browbones. Apply a liquid liner underneath the outer edges to create a two-toned wing and on the inner corners to add a daring slash of color.
TIP: Sharpen the graphic shape with a cotton bud dipped in eye-makeup remover.

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!
