I was getting crafty with my new earrings, trying to match them to lipstick — and loved Copa & Fifi! – Jess Arnaudin

 

Definition: col·or block /kələr -bläk/ Colorblocking, is a method of wearing multiple solid colors in a look. The outfit or look inspiration revolves around a palette of two or more colors, usually in bold and bright shades.

After a long winter of wool scarves and black down coats, we’re craving fresh, juicy spring hues! In lieu of precisely matching lipstick to spring accessories, opt instead to colorblock by layering bright (slightly contrasting) shades. This allows for tons of creativity and a wealth of color combinations!

Here are Pantone swatches of some of my favorite two-toned beauty trends:
