Tutorial: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year EMERALD



PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013. (according to their website). You will see this color everywhere from fashion to home textiles.

What is Pantone you ask? "Pantone is a standardized color matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another." (http://www.colorguides.net/pantone.html). Every year the company comes out with selected colors to feature for the season and one for the year.

 I really love how rich this color is, it's a great color to work in your makeup routine.  If you are not brave enough to try the Emerald all over your eye try applying it as an eyeliner for a pop of color.  The possibilities are endless.

I will be focusing on all the Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report Colors below for future videos and MOTD'S. I love all the colors and can't wait to create some amazing looks for all of you.
