Over the past two years, Pantone, makers of those pretty color sample books that designers and other creative pros have used for decades to standardize colors, has been surveying insiders at New York Fashion Week and summarizing seasonal color trends into their highly-anticipated spring and fall Fashion Color Reports.
The spring 2012 edition identifies 10 shades currently climbing up the color popularity charts. They range from natural tones to pastels, and all the way to bold brights.
Make Up For Ever can help color lovers stay on the cutting edge and implement the trendy shades in Pantone’s latest Color Report. All of the pieces here are part of the brand’s permanent line, and available now at Sephora stores and also online.
For Solar Power and Cabaret, try Eyeshadow in #71 (left) and Eye Shadow in #58 (right), $19 each

One of my favorite things about Make Up For Ever is their wide selection of permanent collection colors. Can you think of any other possible Pantone spring 2012 dupes from MUFE or from other brands? Inquiring minds want to know.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. It’s that time again! The time for happy hump day wishes.
