Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year and there’s no denying it’s HOT right now. We’ve already endorsed the shade as the trending color for a 2012 wedding, but did you know it’s made it’s way onto faces as the latest trending color in makeup as well?
We’ve been spotting Tangerine Tango makeup all over the fashion runways and on the faces of Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities. And we all know that what we see strutting down the catwalks and gliding across red carpets, we’ll later see walking down the aisle. (Remember these red carpet-ready bridal hairstyles?)
The most popular Tangerine Tango makeup trend has got to be the lips. While you might be a little nervous at the thought of smoothing bright orange lipstick over your pout – don’t fret – this shade looks surprisingly flattering on everyone, not to mention it’s a refreshing update on classic red lips. Pair it with minimal shimmering face makeup and a little bit of black eyeliner for a simple, yet glowing look. We love the dewy and translucent faces paired with Tangerine lips on Amber Heard and Jessica Alba!
Here’s a few of our recommended picks for Tangerine Tango lip color: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 12, Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Lip Color in Tango Fusion, and Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Oversized Orange.
Tangerine Tango lips might be all the rage, but this shade can be worn on the cheeks and eyes as well. Kelly Rowland looks like a “Sunkist” goddess in her shimmering Tangerine cheeks and eyeshadow paired with a one-shouldered orange dress.
Since Sephora has teamed up with Pantone to create an exclusive line of Tangerine inspired shades for the whole face, you can get your hands on an entire palette of Tangerine Tango makeup – all in one six-piece set! Seen here is the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collector’s Edition Set with everything you need to make up your face in this exotic citrus shade.
