Pantone-Inspired Beauty Haul

Pantone Color Institute recently announced its Color of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

As a long-time fan of orange shades, I LOVE this color!   And on a Personal Shopping appointment yesterday, I saw two MAC lip colors that perfectly create this red-orange shade:

MAC Lipglass in Knockout.  MAC Lip Pencil in Entertain Me.

How gorgeous are these two colors?  Individually, they're beautiful, and combined they perfectly create the Tangerine Tango shade I love!

Starting with the gloss, applied in a stippling motion, I then blended in a bit of the pencil for a sheer, tangerine wash on the lips.  Wear this with a light wash of bronzer or apricot brush on cheeks and strong brows with simple, neutral eyes for a chic daily look.  This color is gorgeous on all skin tones, especially those with slightly pinker undertones.  I hear Pantone will be coming out with a line for Sephora this year, but for those of us who want it now, check out MAC.  The Knockout Lipglass is limited edition, so hurry!!

What colors are you feeling this year?
