Be it fashion and beauty, or interiors and art, there’s no denying that every industry is influenced by Pantone’s colour predictions for the forthcoming year. To usher in the new decade, the Pantone Color Institute has declared ‘Classic Blue’ to be the shade for 2020. Whilst this gorgeous shade depicts serenity and stability in most aspects, it’s also an exciting colour to incorporate into your makeup kit! Ahead are 5 products that will ensure that you stay on trend for the next 366 days.
1. NYX Retractable Eye Liner In ‘Deep Blue’
With its creamy consistency and pigmented formula, this twist-up pencil is the one to get your hands on. The dark blue shade glides on to the lids to deliver a pop of colour that enhances the eyes beautifully. Draw on a thin line to get a subtle effect or go all out with a graphic eye – either way, this colour will not disappoint.
2. OPI Nail Lacquer In ‘Super Trop-i-cal-i-fiji-istic’
Looking for a quick and easy way to incorporate Pantone’s colour into your regime? Swipe on a few coats of this nail paint. Inspired by clear skies and bottomless oceans, this dreamy blue hue is stunning from every angle.
3. Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip In ‘Iced Out’
If you are planning to go all out, grab a tube of this liquid lipstick. The intense formula delivers an opaque coat of royal blue with a blinding, metallic sheen. Just remember to clean up the edges of your lips with a concealer so that you can rock a fierce pout.
4. Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumising Mascara In ‘Blue’
This cult-favourite mascara is ideal for those who want to stay on trend, without attracting too much attention. Although the mascara looks intimidating on the brush, it goes on easily to provide a muted blue tint to your lashes.
5. 3ina Glide N Shine In ‘Blue Note’
This is the product that I’m most excited about. The powder-to-gel shadow promises a bold sweep of colour with a shiny, disco-like finish. I would pair it with oodles of black mascara and nude lipstick so that the spotlight stays firmly on my eyes.
