The world color authority Pantone has released ten on trend colours for Spring 2016. My clear favorite of all is Fiesta..
The high energy PANTONE 17-1564 Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration to unknown but welcoming locales. A strong and fiery, yellow-based Red, the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette.

Fiesta is an absolutely stunning as a bold lip colour and let's take it a step further and pair it with a matching manicure! Here are some of my suggestions of products that can be incorporated into your own beauty arsenal to create a bright but alluring look.
Sleek Makeup Matte Me Liquid Lipstick in Party Pink is described as a 'Sensational coral hue'. Line and fill in your lips with a red lip liner like Really Red by Ben Nye, before applying the lipstick helps to deepen the coral to an orange based red. The result is gorgeous. I suggest a minimal eyeshadow look; you can play with shimmery neutrals such as golds or bronze eye shadows.
For this look I used Colourpop's Supershock Shadow in 'Amaze' on my eyelid with matte warm brown eye shadows through the crease.
To take this look a step further I recommend using an orange red nail lacquer such as 'Red' by Kleancolor.
My other favorite colours from Pantone's Spring 2016 selections were included in our monthly newsletter for subscribers to the website. If you haven't yet...what're you waiting for?
Until next time!
