The Color of the Year!
As a Sagittarian, turquoise is always near and dear, so when I heard it was named color of the year by Pantone for 2010, my heart warmed…after the past years’ slump and a relatively soft, neutral palette in both fashion and makeup, I feel that we all need some brightening up! Turquoise evokes a tropical vacation…think of the cloudless sky and shimmering ocean, all while escaping your worries at the beach. Turquoise is gorgeous as we move into the summer—wear it everywhere—from your clothes and makeup, to your fingers and toe nails!
Spring Runways showed models sporting turquoise eyeliner—try Susan Posnick’s COLOREYEEDEFINE in Turquoise/Topaz to line the eyes for a pop of color like the ladies at Nanette Lepore .
Celebrities are joining on the aqua bandwagon—Glee starlet Lea Michele, has found a subtle way to highlight her beautiful brown eyes with a sheer wash of the shade over a smoky black eyeliner—just a hint of the blue/green color really highlights and brightens up her appearance.
If the eyes are a little too bold for you, try a teal colored polish on your toes—Essie makes a few stunning shades like Greenport and Turquoise and Caicos to jump on the turquoise trend!
