Every year the color experts at Pantone name a color that will serve as the “it” trend in fashion, home décor, beauty and beyond in the seasons to come. This year for the first time two shades were chosen: rose quartz and serenity.
According to Pantone, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
Whether you’re a trend follower or not, it’s still fun to seek out these colors especially when they evoke words like “calm” and “relaxation.”
I got pretty inspired while searching through some of my favorite products for shades of rose quartz and serenity. I always forget about blue mascara! It’s a subtle way to add a simple, surprising pop to your look. The same for light bubble gum pink lips.

Do you love the colors of the year? Which one would you wear??
After discovering some crazy chemical ingredients on the back of my usual make-up remover, I decided to seek out a homemade solution to take its place. Sure, I could buy something au natural but where’s the fun in that? I could also go out and buy a ready-made salad but I find joy in preparing my own.
There were so many different recipes online, and after trying several, this was definitely my favorite. It absolutely works and it even removes waterproof mascara!
DIY All Natural Eye Makeup Remover
• 2 Tbsp witch hazel (you can even use lavender or rose petal)
• 2 Tbsp natural oil (such as jojoba oil, almond oil, etc.)
• 2 Tbsp water (filtered water is suggested)

Thanks for creating an opportunity for us to share our thoughts and ask you questions! I’m Alexandra 🙂 I’m 21 years old and have never had skin problems until recently. I have no idea why, but my face is breaking out bad. I play sports 24/7 so I’m constantly sweating. I assume that contributes to the germs on my face, but I’ve tried several different products and nothing is working. I was wondering if there was a certain product that you use that works magic? I’m desperate here and tired of my face looking horrible. Thanks for taking time to read my message!
I learned during New York Fashion Week that the current lip color de jour is pink! I noticed that many of the models and the fashion forward folk were all about the rosy lips. A fan myself, I think a pretty pink lip looks youthful and healthy. It’s almost as if your lips are blushing. Bold colors can be difficult to pull off, so how do you find the perfect tone for you?

I was thinking the other day… post cough or cold, there’s no way I’d pick up the same drinking glass I used when I was sneezing up a storm to take a sip, however there are lipsticks in my purse and drawer that I’ll whip out without ever thinking twice. Umm… eeew!
This prompted an immediate online search followed by a code red (and coral, peach, blush, orange and so on) clean-up situation.
The Internet tells you there are three easy ways to sanitize your lip cosmetics, and after some deep investigating, I am here to share my results with you. Think of this as sort of a beauty version of two truths and a lie.
Read on for the lipstick dish.
