Every December, we eagerly wait for Pantone to predict the colour that will dominate the forthcoming year. From 2015’s ‘Marsala’ to last year’s ‘Greenery’, every shade has made its mark. 2018’s colour, however, is the most stunning one yet.
‘Ultra Violet’, a blue-based purple, has been declared as the colour of the year. Not only does it depict the mystery of the future, but is also has artistic and spiritual significance. Plus, this shade works so well in our makeup kits. Here are 7 products you need to stock up on so that you can stay on trend!
Looking to make a major statement? Swipe on this intense violet shade. The liquid lipstick is pigmented enough to last all day, whilst the matte finish adds a layer of edginess.
For a subtler look, turn to this metallic liner. Use it to draw on a delicate wing or extend it further for more drama—Either way, you will look amazing.
Don’t be scared to experiment with a purple-toned blush. This powder formula blends easily to provide a pretty flush of colour and a lit-from-within glow.
If you want to really match the colour of the year, this nail paint is the one to get. Apart from the fact that it has been developed in collaboration with Pantone, it is also free of harmful chemicals.
This cream-to-powder shadow is made for parties. The metallic finish adds dimension and shimmer to pep up your lids.
Matte lipsticks may not be your thing, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your chic vibe! Top up any lipstick with this glossy purple or wear it alone to jazz up your pout.
Skip the falsies and opt for this coloured mascara next time. The unexpected hue will bring out the whites of your eyes and give your look a fun touch.
