Every year we eagerly await Pantone's announcement for its latest Colour of the Year. Will it be bright? Will it be cool? Will it be a hummer? Will it be a bummer? More importantly... can we rock it on our face? (No, you're addicted to makeup... shush.) 2018's shade 'Ultra Violet' lent itself very much to a sultry eye look, brave lip look or an easy nail look. This year's colour though? We could slap it everywhere!
Meet the 2019 Colour of the Year...
Described as 'an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge', it's safe to say we're living for Living Coral! It brings a lightness to our hearts! It puts a spring in our step! And we're going to wear the heck out of it! So what's out there that emulates this divine shade? Check these out...
A little on the lips, a dab on the cheeks, and just like that Bobbi Brown will have you rocking the Living Coral trend with their Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral!
We wouldn't buy a whole eyeshadow palette just for one shade, would we? Yes. Yes we would. And that shade in the middle of the bottom row of NYX Professional Makeup's Love You So Mochi in 'Sleek and Chick' palette has our finger hovering over the buy button, big time.
Helloooooo, beautiful! How stunning is the shade Gel-ful from Covergirl's Melting Pout range? Get on our lips already!
'So many men, so little time...'? More like, so much makeup, not enough face! Can't say we've ever been all that enamoured with frat boys irl, but we're into this one!
While this is technically an eyeliner, we can't stop thinking about putting this shade on our entire lid. Yes please.
Are you more of a toe-twinkler or finger-flasher? Tart Deco from Essie will have you living your best life!
What do we love most about Living Coral? It's so summery, and it's summer! It's the perfect shade for our long, balmy days. There's no waiting a few months for cooler weather to set in so we can get amongst a vampy Pantone shade (we're looking at you 2015 Colour of the Year, Marsala), we can delve in immediately! (And yes, we know you can wear whatever colour whenever, but our souls go to the bright and pretty in warmer weather and the dark and mysterious in cooler.)
