Pantone Color of the Year

Drum roll please...2010's hottest color is TURQUOISE. You probably already knew that, though. I'm bringing it up because it's the most fitting hue for summer. It makes me think of lemonade, late night swims in the neighborhood pool, and tropical escapes.

There are all sorts of ways to incorporate this color into your life. Turquoise is supposedly a symbol of youth and communication. Additionally, it creates a soothing effect. Why not find a gorgeous new dress or pair of heels in this color? Or maybe revamp the walls of your bathroom? Keep reading for some inspiration and product ideas.

Doesn't Chanel Iman look stunning with dramatic ocean-inspired makeup at the Gucci spring show? Aqua and turquoise eye shadows and dramatic lashes really make her brown eyes pop. All brown-eyed beauties should consider investing in a shadow or liner of this color. It's a bit unexpected yet incredibly summery. It looks equally great paired with a nude lip for the day or a vixen wine lip for night. This color has been cropping up on nails for the past year as well, so try the bold hue for your next manicure or pedicure! I personally own #3 and #5, and I love them both.
