While the 2012 color of the year was announced a few months ago, Sephora (one of the largest beauty retailers) just recently launched a new makeup collection in collaboration with Pantone (the global authority on color). The “color of the year”, Tangerine Tango, is that reddish orange we are seeing throughout men’s and women’s fashion, interior design and most importantly – makeup! I am a big orange fan so this makes me a very happy makeup artist! I’ll most definitely be using this for color inspiration for my own makeup and for upcoming projects.
For someone with brown eyes, orange will bring out amber tones, for someone with blue or green eyes, orange will further enhance the green or blue tones.

I’m dreaming of all the amazing looks I can create with all these beautiful orange tones…
bright coral lips & soft bronzy cheeks
rusty orange eyes & pale nude-peach lips
pumpkin-cinnamon eyes and pinkish apricot lips
One of my absolute favorite looks with this color is a really vibrant coral-orange lip paired with a very simple eye with just a little bit of black eyeliner and a whole lot of mascara. My list of ideas could go on forever.
