If you can’t already tell from the blatant title and pictures below, I have been obsessed with color! I’ve always been into minimalistic designs, neutrals, and pastels. Simple, natural makeup with a vivid lip every once in a while. But now, I’m going bold! It’s time to make a statement.
I’ve taken cue from the runway and embraced the incoming Pantone colors of Spring ’15: refreshing Aquamarine, energizing Scuba Blue, sweet Strawberry Ice, bright Tangerine, sunny Custard, rich Marsala, and cool Glacier Gray. These fresh, ethereal colors are fitting to the breezy, chic en plein air theme. Cooler shades with nuanced vibrancy captures the elemental stillness and je ne sais quoi of nature.
