Makeup Magic: 4 Products, 7 Lovely Looks

As much fun as playing with the latest makeup shades can be, it’s easy to get overloaded (and go bankrupt) if you keep stockpiling cosmetics. With a little ingenuity and the right know-how though, you can create a bevy of beauty looks using just the bare minimum of products. We asked Sephora pro lead artist Gilbert Soliz to take our four winter makeup essentials (and nothing more) and create a week’s worth of completely different looks. Check out what he came up with, then learn how to do them yourself!
