Trend forecaster Pantone recently announced “Tangerine Tango” as the colour of the year, and with so many ways to incorporate this sunny citrus shade into your everyday makeup, we encourage you to give it a try. (For more on all of Pantone’s shade picks for 2012 and how they’re inspiring our beauty looks, check out “Bright Future” in the January 2012 issue of FLARE.) Stila’s Lip and Cheek Stain in Mango Crush gives you the perfect flush of the juicy orange colour, and the click-pen applicator makes it easy for on-the-go touch ups. For a bolder, more intense pop, Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in #10 can also be worn on your lips and cheeks (or if you’re feeling especially daring, even your eyes). We also love to swipe on Urban Decay’s Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour in Punch Drunk for an instant way to liven up our makeup routine. –Melanie Kerr
