2012 Trend: Bright, Bold, and Neon Makeup/Accessories

Since Pantone named Tangerine Tango the color of the year for 2012, the bright trend has been surging again in anticipation of warmer weather.  Bold, punchy lipsticks and nail polishes are debuting in makeup collections everywhere in addition to colorful packaging and accessories.  Here are a few ways to get in on the trend yourself!

 The extra bold can play with bright unusual eyeshadow shades or orange-red lipstick.  For less of a statement try out an orange-pink or sparkly neon purple manicure.  If bright makeup just isn't your thing, you can still get in on the trend with a Tangerine Tango-inspired makeup bag, metallic hot pink eyelash curler, or bright yellow face mask (bonus: it's hibiscus!).

Sugarpill 4 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Burning Heart
Iris Apfel for MAC Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Ibis
Sephora Hot Hues Orange Bag Collection

Putting this post together brightened up my mood so much I think I need to add a little more color in my life!  What about you?  Will you be in on the bright makeup/accessories trend this year?
