Bold yet beautiful, such as the Pantone Color of 2020. Purnima Vasaikar swatches a way to inculcate the ultimate colour in your makeup palette.
Right from every beauty professional, designers to stylists, everyone awaits the arrival of Pantone Color of the Year. It gives every creator, a chance to showcase their artistry through their own means. Painting the town with Classic Blue (or Pantone 19-4052 in design speak), is here to find its place in your makeup kit. This hue is said to represent serenity and stability but what makes us more excited are the makeup looks one could create with it. If you think that blue makeup looks solely represented the 80’s, well 2020 is here to give it a tough time. The best way to work with this hue is by using it to highlight one element of your face.
Bold Blue Eyes
If you are the one who loves to accentuate their eyes, then this is your way to own the look! A precise cut crease or a smokey eye look can be your party go-getter! For a bold makeup look, apply a darker blue shade underneath the eyes and on top of the eyelid. Blend in a lighter shade in the middle of the eyelid. Voila, a halo effect is achieved! For this look, Huda Beauty Obsession Palette in Sapphire will seal the deal for you.
For classic smoky eye look, smudge a dark blue eye pencil on your eyelid and around your eyes and set with a dark blue eyeshadow. Add a lighter metallic blue into the inner corners of your eyes to make them look more refined. To achieve this look, you can opt for Wet and Wild Icon Eyeshadow in Moonchild.
Coloured cat-eye flick
If you think that blue lids are too much for your liking and you still want to work with Classic Blue, eyeliner is your way to go! By opting for a simple blue eyeliner you can create looks right from the fishtail, natural to think winged and all-round liner. You can even opt for liners with shimmer in it, the choice is yours! Keeping your budget in mind, Color Bar, NYX Professional & Lakme have a reasonably priced blue eyeliner on the block.
Fluttery blue lashes
Coloured lashes have been high on the trending radar for a while now. Why not inculcate this trend with the colour of the year? A blue volumizing or lengthening mascara is all you need to add that element of zing to your look. This colour on your eyelashes will make you look like an enchanting queen! Coat your lashes with your favourite blue mascara, Benefit Cosmetics BadGAL Mascara will do the job. To add more depth to the eyes, opt for MAC Technakohl liner in ‘Cool Jazz’ and fill in your waterline. Try out this look and thank us later!
Blue lips have made their mark on the red carpet by many iconic stars like Kylie Jenner and Lupita Nyong’o. But no one did it better than Rihanna who was the trendsetter for blue lips at the time. With Classic Blue, you have a chance to unleash your bold side and own it like a boss! You can opt for Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip In ‘Iced Out’ or even for MAC Retro Matte Liquid Metallics in Moon landing.
