As much as we love experimenting with makeup, sometimes it’s best to defer to the pros when picking out new products. That’s why we were thrilled to hear from makeup artist David Razzano, a Sephora Beauty Director who has created beauty looks for New York Fashion Week and spreads in Nylon, Elle, and many other magazines. Razzano told us exactly what he’s shopping this spring at Sephora, from vibrant eyeshadow palettes to fluffy makeup brushes.

Razzano lives and breathes Sephora, so he really knows what he’s talking about when it comes to choosing the best Sephora eyeshadows and brushes. He views makeup as an art, sharing, “the warmer weather has inspired my inner artist, and I plan to indulge myself.” Right now Razzano is loading up on eyeshadow palettes from brands like Natasha Denona and Anastasia Beverly Hills. A self-professed “brush fanatic,” he is continuing his haul with some new Sephora Collection PRO brushes.


It seems Razzano is after eyes that mesmerize, and who can blame him. A former fashion designer for the likes of Kenneth Cole and Tommy Hilfiger, Razzano has an excellent eye for artistry, so it’s no surprise he has over 37,000 followers on Instagram. He loves using the platform to share his makeup must-haves, like the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick ($43, sephora.com) and the Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil ($24, sephora.com).

Razzano is loving this highly pigmented palette with maximum impact and color payoff. “This gorgeous eyeshadow palette is beautifully curated with a unique collection of pink shades balanced with incredible neturals,” Razzanno shares. “The result is a highly wearable collection of colors that can easily shift from subtle day looks to the most dramatic evening eyes.” If you’re looking for a versatile palette with playful shades, add this Natasha Denona item to your cart ASAP.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 2


This Anastasia Beverly Hills palette tops Razzano’s list because of its “gorgeous selection of bold shades in matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes.” Razzano also enjoys how “the handful of blue tones within are right in line with the Pantone color of the year—classic blue.” Tons of enthusiastic Sephora shoppers agree, which is why this aqua-themed palette had over 20,000 hearts at the time of this writing.

Sephora Collection PRO Shadow Brush #15


As any makeup enthusiast knows, your beauty look is only as good as your brushes. That’s why Razzano is obsessed with this multitasking brush for precise, even coverage. “The smaller head shape combined with the soft bristles make this a perfect choice for both powder and cream eyeshadows,” Razzano says. “You can create the most stunning eye looks with this magical brush.”

Sephora Collection PRO Crease Brush #24


Like the PRO Shadow Brush #15, this Sephora brush is also affordable and high quality, making it another great catch. “This smaller, fluffy crease brush is perfect for blending out all your eyeshadow looks,” Razzano says. “It will swiftly blend through the crease and leave your eyeshadows perfectly smooth and seamless.” Plus, this brush is made with hand-shaped bristles with a tapered handle for easy application.
