Get to know: Mandarin

Color description: A punchy shade with high impact that can work for any skin tone when paired with the right beauty products.

Runway inspiration: Carolina Herrera

Pair the shade with: 1) Sand; the soft color acts as a starting point for your ensemble, 2) Navy; this new neutral really brings out the brightness in the hue, 3) Army green; the deeper shade offsets the brightness, and 4) Purple; because of its doubly vibrant punch, this duo is definitely a wild-card pairing—wear the shades together for a notice-me moment.

Avoid: Chocolate; injecting brown into the mix will make your outfit seem bland and less now.
