Orange is the new Black

In case you haven’t heard, the Pantone color of the year is Tangerine Tango. It’s a gorgeous complexion flattering red-orange. The shade is a perfect for transitioning into more summery make-up colors, and has been spotted all over the Red Carpets. Lisa Herber, Vice President of Consumer Licensing at Pantone described the color best saying the shade  “has the energy and vitality of red, but the warmth and mellowness of yellow.”

What better way to wear this fiery shade than on your face and nails?  The trick is to apply the color subtly. Instead of coordinating all of your features in the shade, pick just one that you want to highlight or play up with your make up look. Below are my top picks that will have you rocking this shade all summer long.
