Just as Pantone forecasts which shades will be hot in the coming year, Allure has predicted the new makeup hues you’ll be wearing before they’re officially trends. Here, the next big things for eyes, cheeks, lips, and nails.
Pantone named an orange-red called “Tangerine Tango” its shade of the year for 2012, and we’re loving this bright, citrusy color for makeup, too. Although the orange eyeliner we saw on the runways looked cool, the shade looks best (and is a lot easier to pull off) on lips or nails.
Brown eye shadow is a makeup-bag staple, but now makeup artists are amping it up with a touch of shine. Lightly swipe a rich moisturizer over copper shadow. Or just try a shade that’s already got a hint of gloss.
We’re tickled pink over the shades of purple that popped up on nails at Dior, Derek Lam, and Prabal Gurung. Violet looks best on short, well-groomed nails.
This year’s take on the nude lip is a pink-y peach shade that flatters all skin tones. Tap peach gloss over the center of soft pink lips for a glow. GET THE REST HERE!
