0509_orange_launchDifferent hues of orange swept spring runways this season, and nothing says summer like bright colors!

Global color authority, Pantone, has named tangerine the color of 2012, and more and more celebs are opting for orange looks, on and off the red carpet!

Eva Mendes, Emma Roberts and Kristen Bell are just a few of the stars who stunned in this new shade, donning gowns in an array of orange hues at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, on Monday.

Other stars recently spotted braving tangerine tints are Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson and Nicole Richie, who chose more causal styles in the bold hue.

But for those of us who are still slightly hesitant to try this daring new palette, Sephora experts are confident that anyone can rock a tangerine tone!

Erik Soto, a Sephora Pro, assured toofab that everybody can wear this shade in some form or another because every person has orange undertones in their skin.

From brown eyes to blue eyes, orange shades immediately lighten up your look! But tangerine makeup should be worn in moderation … opting for either a bold lip or a dramatic shadow works best.
