Tangerine Dreams

19 Jan

If you stopped by here yesterday, you probably noticed that we blacked out the blog to join many others to protest SOPA. There may still be a “stop censorship” banner at the top right corner, so if you’re not sure what it’s about, check it out.

Back back to beauty – Pantone’s color of the year for 2012 is tangerine tango, and we’re pretty pumped about it. Tangerine makeup may sound scary, but it’s really not. Here are some of our picks to help you wear the tangerine trend:

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy ($25, tartecosmetics.com)

Tipsy is definitely a G&S favorite. We both own this blush and love, love, love it. It’s described as coral, and leans a little more to the tangerine side than the pink side. It’s a great cheek color for the spring and summer, but we’ve found it’s been brightening our days when the winter gloom is starting to get to us.

Inglot Pearl 407 ($5, inglotusa.com)

We both also own this color and it was pretty much an instant favorite. It’s a golden peach, but definitely is in the tangerine family.

Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot ($22, Sephora.com)

Apricot is described as a melon nectarine shade. It will be lovely as a light wash of color over the lips.

Essie Mango Bango ($8, essie.com)

This is the perfect shade to help sport a tangerine dream look. Red wore this one a lot last summer and absolutely loved it.

Tell us, do you have any products that would be perfect  for a Tangerine Dream look?
