We all need a little colour in our lives. And according to Pantone, the authority on all things colour, the IT shades of the year are Serenity (a soft blue) and Rose Quartz (a light mineral pink).
Our Rose Quartz beauty picks (clockwise from top left): Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow Matte in 259 Strawberry Macaroon, $17; RMK Lip Jelly Gloss #02, $36; Cle de Peau Beaute Cream Eye Colour Solo No.302, $60; Shu Uemura Drawing Crayon in P Pink, $38; Lunasol Sparkling Light Eyes 05 Pink Sparkling, $58; Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes in Pink & Plenty, $26; Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Enamel in 206 Resurrection, $34; Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow in Pastel Pink, $22.
We’re all for these two colour recommendations: They look as uh-mazingly pretty in their packaging as well as when they’re worn on our faces and nails.

But the best part about these shades? Although they’re technically pastel hues of baby pink and blue, they’re so subtle they come across as more elegant than playful. Perfect for just about everyone.
