I am addicted to sunglasses. Even on the cloudiest of days, I cannot leave home without them. I think blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun. Choosing the right pair is essential, especially if you’re spending a lot of money. They are a major statement piece and it’s important to wear a pair that fits your style. A huge trend in frames this season is the Cat Eye. This silhouette has been around for decades, but comes and goes as far as trends are concerned. I’ve always been a huge fan! They are super glamorous and look great on almost everyone. Here’s a look at my top picks this season.
Tortoise, especially in coffee shades, are huge right now. This color really does look good on everyone.

Sunglasses are the ultimate accessory when the sun is shining. Be sure to try on many pairs, get someone’s opinion, and have fun!!
I have to admit I was very happy with Pantone’s “Color of the Year” selection. “Tangerine Tango” (or Pantone 17-1463) is the perfect shade of reddish orange and is a color that really is flattering on everyone. Pantone is the authority on color and is the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer. In other words, the color trends each season begin with Pantone.
Color of the year- Tangerine Tango
I guess it only makes sense that Sephora and Pantone would collaborate on a collection. Sephora+Pantone’s color trend-forecasting is a collection of the season’s top shades in easy-to-wear variations and finishes. The collection is made up of everything from makeup to accessories and the colors are simply fabulous. Here’s a look at my top picks. Everything is very limited edition, available only at Sephora, and I’m sure will sell out quickly.
Color of the Year Blush Duo $26
Two complimentary shades in a micro-fine pressed powder. This formula is light, yet creamy to the touch.
Color of the Year Chrome Blush in Apricot Brandy $16
This is a luxurious velvety blush that has the best elements of baked, powder, and cream blush formulas. The color goes on like a second skin and the apricot color is wonderful on all skin tones.
Color of the Year Creme Lipstick in Tangerine Tango $18
This is an amazing lipstick that smoothes, hydrates, and protects lips. This is the shade to have this year and it is stunning.
Color of the Year Lip Gloss Set $20 ($60 value)
Four high-intense colors based on the color of the year. This gloss is hydrating and long-wearing, all while imparting crystal refelctions.
Color of the Year Nail Enamel Set $24 ($40 value)
Four tangerine-inspired shades in long-wearing enamel formula. Your tootsies will draw major attention with this varnish!
These tangerine shades scream summer and make me want to break out the flip flops and beach towels. Some items are coming soon and some are available now. Please visit Sephora for more products and information.
