Every year, Pantone releases a color that represents the cultural zeitgeist of the upcoming year according to its color think tank. (If you’re unfamiliar with Pantone, take a look at our past post on the company). This year, it’s the energetic zing of reddish-orange, Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango.
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
Tangerine Tango is also an amazing palette for makeup, a concept embraced by retailer Sephora. Check out all the pretty shades of lipstick, eyeshadow – even false lashes inspired by this fun color!
