Watch Your Tone: Beauty Products in PANTONE’s Color(s) of the Year

2016 is a banner year in the world of design. For the first time ever, the color corporation PANTONE announced that the combination of two shades would be designated Color of the Year.

2015’s tint was purple-red Marsala. 2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid. And 2016, well, it’s time for the pretty pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity. For those in the business or into fashion, the shades aren’t really a surprise: the Spring 2016 runways were overrun with blush and indigo. But it’s the combo that has folks really excited. And your makeup is a great place to begin mixing the two hues. Here are some of our favorite products in rose and blue.
