Pantone predicts color trends each year, designers forecast fashion trends, and Allure Magazine guesses which makeup palettes will be most popular in the coming year, allowing you to stock up and start setting trends right as the ball drops.
Just as Pantone has announced, "Tangerine Tango" is going to be the hue of the year in 2012. Luckily for beauty gurus everywhere, this will likely translate into a juicy lip shade and nail color. The orange shade will make your red lips extra punchy in the new year. The news source reports that cherry red is also going to be a favorite.
The magazine reports that glossy brown eye shadow is also going to be huge next year. While almost every makeup lover owns at least one shade of brown or beige eyeshadow, consider adding a swipe of moisturizer or Vaseline over it to rock this trend. Pearly white and silver shadow is also going to be hot in 2012. Luckily for you, this trend will brighten your eyes, making you look more awake.
For your cheeks, you need to invest in a good peach or apricot blush. Allure reports that layering traditional pink blush over an apricot hue makes your skin glow the way it does when you're naturally flushed.
