Spring 2016 color trend


Pink, along with the range of hues in the rose subset, is always a popular choice for spring makeup.  But rose in spring 2016 is set apart from seasons past due to its use on eyes as well as cheeks, lips and nails to create a monochromatic look.   Whether slightly dark and moody (as in MAC's Dusky Rose palette) or sweet and romantic (as seen on the Dior and McQueen runways), rose gets a refresh this season.

What do you think of rose, particularly as an all-over shade?  Personally, brighter pinks are more flattering with my coloring so I'm drawn to those more than rose, but I like it on others.
