GO GREEN, LITERALLY

As Pantone already announced their color of 2013, are you ready to be spotted in this hot hue?

I have to admit, I am not. I don’t think I look that great in green, so I’m going to stick with this ‘in’ shade on my nails. Still, it’s an alternative way to be seen in green, right?

My Pick:

OPI “Jade is the new black”

RESCUE BEAUTY LOUNGE “Recycle”

ILLAMASQUA “Rampage”

REVLON “Emerald”

ORLY “Enchanted Forest”

 

IN LIVING COLORS

Soothing neutral and energizing bright colors will create the perfect palette for Spring 2013.

Every fall and spring, Pantone launched their color report, which will influence the overall fashion industry. Earlier this September, Pantone released the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2013, on the first day of New York Fashion Week. It features the top 10 colors that designers’s such as Herve Leger, Peter Som and Tadashi Shoji use for their upcoming collections. 

So refreshing to see the combination of light and bright colors which will be easier for us to mix and match later on. 

NO MORE WRONG SHADES

Somehow, finding the perfect shade of foundation for your skin tone seems to be a hard one. We tested it on the jaw line, on the back of our hand, and we all become a guinea pig for ourselves, because we can’t stop trying to find a perfect one. It’s like finding your true love, isn’t it? But now, there’s help for this makeup situation. Sephora and Pantone came up with this clever foundation matching tool called Color IQ. This device will scan the surface of your skin on the face and assign our complexion to an official Pantone Skintone number. Once we’ve got the number, it’ll be compared against Sephora’s Universal Skintone Guide (consists more than 1000 shades of foundation) to determine which product is a precise match for our skin tone. Said to be incredibly accurate, I can’t wait for Sephora to be open in Indonesia soon and bring this clever tool to my hometown.
