Coming together for an enchanting collaboration, SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE take this fall’s most exciting shades and have turned them into colors you can wear in a new collection: The Alchemy of Color. Colors are inspired by precious prisms and gemstones that become even more luminous when paired with moody darks. This newest collaboration takes fall’s color forecast to the next level by creating shades that embody a powerful, modern magic stemming from color and texture.
They began with a sentiment expressed by Arthur C. Clarke, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This created the desire to take the concept of ancient rituals and magic and combine them with the latest advances in technology. There is an interplay of color and texture: glowing jeweled tones that are lush and sumptuous paired with lavish sparkle, a metallic and glossy sheen, and new effects. Alchemy of Color gives you the ability to play with the feel and attitude of your look with a myriad of color and textural options. It can be modern, mysterious, or entrancing–every look exudes radiance as you play with light and shadow in dynamic, luminous tones of this fall’s radiant jewels.
Tone on Tangerine Tango
Take inspiration from warm, rich tones that will bring fall’s most beautiful hues to the forefront with a lip in tangerine tango, Pantone’s color of the year, that takes center stage! Begin by blending a golden shadow from lash lines to creases for a smooth base. Next, swoosh a mahogany shade into the creases, gently blending from the inner to the outer edges for dimension. To finish the eyes, curl lashes and apply mascara to the upper lashes. For a luminous cheek, apply a luminizing bronzer over forehead and cheeks using circular motions and then swirl a pink blush over the apples of the cheek. Now, for the key part of the look, apply a glowing tangerine lipstick over the lips.

Opt for a luminous, defined face with a hint of warmth and looks natural and effortless. Begin by illuminating the skin with a pearlescent primer, concentrating the coverage on the highest planes of the cheekbones and forehead, as well as on the bridge of the nose. Brush a soft wash of bronzer in circular motions into the hollows of the cheeks, then blend up towards the hairline. Sweep a highlighter over cheekbones and along the bridge of the nose for added luminosity. Lightly dab blush onto the apples of the cheeks, temples, tip of the nose, and chin to add warmth to the skin. Swirl a golden shadow over lids, blending up toward the creases to further enhance the sculpted bronze look. Polish lips with a touch of pink gloss for a soft finish.
