Pantone Announces THE Color for 2011!

And the winner is...
HONEYSUCKLE!




The winner is a reddish, pinkish, salmony blend that is strikingly bold. Pantone calls it, "Courageous. Confident. Vital..." I call it Delicately Energizing, and Cheery

So, why should we care? What the heck is Pantone anyway? What has this got to do with BEAUTY?

Pantone is a Company that developed a color matching system that for many designers has become invaluable. Designers of products such as paint, plastics, print media, digital media, textiles, interiors, and architecture use Pantone as the industry standard for color.

You can see how Pantone also plays an important role in Fashion and Beauty, right?
Cosmetics and apparel will be affected by Pantone's color choice.

So, before the fashion-forward becomes the fashion past, grab some lipstick, blusher, and a cute little dress in the new Color for 2011 – HONEYSUCKLE!
