What began in the year 2000, has now become an annual ritual. Every year, American colour company Pantone declares a specific colour as its "Colour Of The Year" which goes on to have a big influence on the beauty, fashion and design world. Twice a year the company hosts a secret meeting of representatives from various colour standards groups. After much deliberation, they release the colour for the next year. The year, Pantone described “Classic Blue” as "a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection".
Now you can embrace this colour and always stay calm by incorporating it into your makeup. So dig up anything blue from your makeup bag, we’re going to show you how to integrate Pantone's 2020 Colour Of The Year "Classic Blue" into your makeup look.
Smokey Blue Eye
Rocking smokey blue eyes at your New Year’s Eve party is a great way to start your year on a high note. With this makeup look, you're guaranteed to have all eyes on you the moment you enter the room.
If full blue covered lids are a bit too daring for you then you can always go for a simple blue liner on your eyelids. Just 'cause it's simple doesn't mean it's not statement-making. Make your eyes pop with a simple cat-eye by opting for an electric blue or shimmery blue eyeliner.
Blue Rimmed Eyes
For a softer elegant look line your upper and lower lash line with a blue shade. Smudge it up a bit to give it that subtle smokey eye look and make heads turn wherever you go. Whether it's brunch or a dinner date, this classic blue makeup look will leave you looking effortlessly gorgeous.
If you’re the daring type who’s not afraid to take risks, then blue lips are something you should definitely consider. There are no guidelines to rocking this shade on your lips, you just need a whole lot of confidence.
If you’re not experimental with your makeup but still want to incorporate Pantone's 2020 Colour of the Year- Classic Blue into your look, you can always add them to your nails. You can either opt for one single colour or add gradients of blue on your digits.
