Pantone Color Of The Year: Emerald Green

Jan 16, 2013

This year Pantone chose the Emerald Green as the Color of The Year for 2013. Pantone describes the color as "Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony." 

I think that emerald green is a rich and vibrant hue that works wonderfully as an accent color. I created a look inspired by the color of the year. It's a great way to brighten up a neutral look.

Urban Decay NAKED Foundation shade 8.0
Maybelline FitMe Concealer "Medium"

The Wet n Wild creme eye shadow pencil and single eye shadow in "Envy" are cheap and great ways to get your emerald green fix. As both an accent color and an all over eye color. We can expect to see this color everywhere in makeup and in fashion as well.
