Happy New Year! It is a new year. I hope 2016 is starting off great for every one!
Do you follow the Pantone color of the year each year? I do! The fun thing about this is that we see the color (or colors) in makeup and other items all throughout the year.
Last year it was Marsala, and the color was prevalent in beauty products for each season. This year there are two colors — Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colors are so different from last year’s, they are very soft and pretty. I think everyone can wear them in some way to bring soft color to your look!
Here are a few picks in makeup, nail polish and skincare that you can easily incorporate in your routine and stay on trend:
