"A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony," is how color authority Pantone described 2013's color of the year--emerald!
I'm completely in love with this vibrant verdant shade: It's universally flattering and plays well with any skin tone. And it's a lot more versatile than you think. When it comes to fashion, this color is actually pretty easy to pull off, but with makeup it definitely gets a little trickier. The great thing about emerald is that it includes a little of blue in it, which is what makes it work on such a wide range of complexions. It's all about knowing how to work the shade.
