Page 15 of 68 13 beautybuzz INDUSTRY NEWS Pretty Pastels Pantone, the renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, recently announced its annual colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Rose Quartz, a soft, muted pink (think lips and cheeks), and Serenity, a muted gray-blue (think eyelids and even lashes), are bound to inspire perfectly pretty shades, just in time for spring. » Images courtesy Sephora and Pantone Universe Color of the Year 2016 collection. No More Microbeads Get ready for big changes in skin care products.

Many companies have already begun the process of replacing plastic microbeads with natural, biodegradable ingredients such as apricot seeds, powdered pecan shells, and rice.
