We are nearing the end of 2015 and while Pantone has announced their colors of the year for 2016, I don’t think we are going to say goodbye to Marsala anytime soon. Our Marsala Blush and Merlot Organic Crème Lipstick belong in our Sheer Minerals Hall of Fame! Classics transcend trends.

However, now that Pantone has announced their new colors, you can expect the fashion and design worlds will follow suit in makeup, clothing, accessories and home décor. The 2016 Pantone colors of the year are (drumroll please….) Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Pantone threw us all for a loop when they announced the 2016 colors of the year; it’s the first time ever two complementing hues have been chosen. Rose Quartz is a cool soft pink reminiscent of the palest part of a rose petal. Serenity is a light fluffy powder blue, like a baby blanket. Together they look like sugary, airy cotton candy.

The following trends for 2016 are perfectly in tune with these new colors:


  • Luminous, ethereal faces. Achieve this look with dewy Lemongrass Spa Sheer Minerals’ BB crème, highlighting the prominent parts of your face with Honey Glow or Sunset Bronzer.
  • Pink cheeks. Use Sweet Cheeks Blush on the apple of your cheeks to achieve a light cherubic glow.
  • Clumpy eyelashes. Yes, on purpose. The Twiggy look from the 60’s was all the rage on the Spring 2016 runways. Dust Matte Veil on your upper and lower lashes followed by a coat of Lemongrass Spa Organic Mascara and repeat, repeat, repeat.
  • Minimal color on your eyelids for a fresh daytime look. Neutrals and pastels for iridescent peepers.
  • Matte lip. Merlot or Cocoa Berry Organic Crème Lipstick for a nice neutral, matte lip. 


As we at Lemongrass Spa say goodbye to another year, we welcome a NEW year of staying on top of the trends, new looks and colors, while giving you the peace of mind of being FRESH, CLEAN and NATURAL!!

Best wishes to all for a BEAUTIFUL New Year!!!
