PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2016

Happy New Year everyone! It's 2016-finally! January is going to be a pin in the b but I'm determined to fight it till the end. I'm going to make some noise happen this year! You probably noticed that my holiday theme is gone, but I have a new header-yeahh^^ Anyway, I hope that 2016 will bring joy, luck and success to us all!
Moving on, I was looking forward to today's post since the beginning of December. Pantone has finally announced the color of the year! Well technically colorS. If you have no idea what I'm talking about you can go ahead and check out their website where they explain all about the concept and the new colors and possible combinations etc.
You can also check out my posts about Marsala(2015) and Radiant Orchid(2014) 
Sooooo, the colors for 2016 are...Rose Quartz and Serenity! Can you tell I'm excited? Before the release some predicted a turquoise-y color, which I love but it can't be compared to the awesomeness that rose quartz is! I absolutely adore Serenity too but, we all know it, pink is my color. Both of them are so low-key yet stunning, and feminine and very chic. I love them individually and I love them together as well.
Since putting together themed collections has kinda been my thing lately, I wasn't going to back out now. I created two ginormous collections with fashion and beauty items in the color scheme of Rose Quartz and Serenity. {aka baby blue and baby pink}
I know that in the beauty section there are a lot more pink items but, can you really blame me? Pink can be used for lips, eyes, cheeks and highlighter while blue is much more restrictive when it comes to makeup. Personally I own many blue eyeshadows but I just never seem to reach for them. As for the lipstick, the following video pretty much sums up my opinion XD
Man, I love Friends♥
I'm pretty sure that there are many more options that I didn't include here, but I needed to limit this somehow. I hope you like it!

MARSALA: PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2015

What's up guys? How are you all?
I am soooo busy and tired these days, but I had to make this post for you. In case you missed it, you can check out the post I did for 2014's color of the year here. I did this in May and I absolutely loved it, and you guys liked it too. So, I thought I should do it again now that 2015 is so, so close. 
We're just a few breaths and blinks away from the new year, and Pantone has already announced the new it-shade for decor, fashion and beauty. It's called "Marsala" and it's basically the color of the well-known wine. I would describe it as a mix of burgundy, maroon, brown, beige and deep red...if that makes any sense. I read that it got some bad reviews, but I really don't understand why. Personally, I find it quite interesting. I was in love with the past colors but, as you can notice, they were all vibrant and vivid, almost neon. Marsala though is much deeper and mature in a way. It's much more versatile, since you can make tons of different combinations and it suits well both men and women. You can check out Pantone's page for potential combinations. 
They call this color, "The new neutral". I sorta agree since it's really easy to put together many different looks using the color and you can wear it in pretty much any occasion, dress it up or down and make the transition from day to night.
I think that the best, and probably the easiest and cheapest way to incorporate this new color trend in your everyday life, is with the right cosmetics. This is why I found for you some of the best beauty products in the market, some affordable and some more expensive ones, as always. I know I went a little overboard with the lippies, but who doesn't love a red-ish lip, especially this season? 
Also, exciting news, Sephora is launching a Marsala makeup collection in collaboration with Pantone Universe, just like they did in 2012 with Tangerine Tango. I can't wait! 
Until then, you can stare at all these gorgeous products-or buy them XD. Enjoy!
