It's that time again. The color experts at Pantone have announced their color of the year. For 2010, it was all about turquoise, and we saw the blue-green hue everywhere from celebrity eyeliner looks to department store palettes to MAC's dazzling Alice and Olivia collaboration. And for 2011, the color is honeysuckle. The reddish-pink shade provides a nice healthy glow to the skin and is said to be alluring, engaging, and uplifting. "In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues," said Pantone's Leatrice Eiseman. Sounds good to me. Check out a few enlightening beauty options featuring the shade below:
- For the hair: Ground the pink shade with a touch of black, like with Hype's Blair Feather Headbands ($38). For extra flair, Forever 21's Floral Mesh Satin Headband ($2) or Sequin Bow Pins ($3) will add just the right amount of impact.
- For the nails: Try CND's Color in Smoothie ($7).
- For the lips: For the a pink pout that makes a statement, how about some Paul and Joe Lipstick in Poppy ($20)?
