In this cool look, silver, sea foam and icy blue weave together to create a metallic shimmer. Dark roots and a tendrils of brown branching through the cool hues make the shades pop and add depth to the palette. The metallic feeling of this blend takes pastel from flirty to futuristic. Click the notes for application tips and professional formulations. –– Laura Martin
