Looks like there's a new beauty trend gaining traction with the celebrity set. Their makeup artists are starting to pass over typical rouge shades like poppy, berry, and rose in favor of orangey hues like tangerine, pumpkin, and carrot.

Wondering why? It's the perfect way to play up a tan, it looks much more naturally burnished on tanned and dark complexions, and a bit more sun-kissed than flustered on fair complexions.

Think you might want to get in on the trend before it hits fever pitch? Put down the pink blush and pick up Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef, $12.99 at Drugstore.com. It's actually perfect on all skin tones.
