Tangerine is slated to be the “it” color for 2012 and is cropping up everywhere! (Who knew citrus could be healthy and trendy?) Bold shades of orange (think tangerine, bright corals) will soon be all the rage – from wardrobe to makeup to accessories and is even being dubbed the “Tangerine Tango” by Pantone (renowned authority on color). Hey, what’s not to love about this hot shade? Its bright, crisp hue packs some serious color punch and evokes feelings of sunshine and spunk (it’s practically an automatic mood booster).
No matter the skin tone, you can’t go wrong with this stunning shade, gals!
