Pantone has officially announced its colour of the year 2020. A timeless and elegantly simple shade, they have chosen PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue as the hue to carry us into this new decade.

This shade was selected because it is both comforting and relatable. From dark denim to tailored suits and elegant dresses, this gorgeous hue has long been a staple in both the beauty and the fashion world.

A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit.

Eight Beauty Products Inspired By Classic Blue

While you’ll no doubt be adding a range of gorgeous deep blue tops, dresses and trousers to your wardrobe this year, it’s time to update your makeup bag too. Luckily for you, I’ve rounded up the best beauty buys inspired by Classic Blue. Better yet, you can buy them all from lookfantasticusing your GLOSSYCredit.

1. Morphe - Gel Liner

Boasting a luxuriously creamy formula, this gel liner glides effortlessly onto your lid to deliver a gorgeous navy colour. So, for a classic winged eye with a 2020 twist, swap out your black liner for this one!

2. Daniel Sandler - Velvet Waterproof Eyeliner

If you prefer pencil eyeliners, why not give this one a whirl? Infused with nourishing vitamin C and E, this smooth, velvety pencil applies effortlessly. I’d use it on my waterline, but you can also use it to smoke out your upper lash line.

3. OPI - Classic Nail Lacquer

A Classic Blue with a shimmery finish, this enchanting nail varnish allows you to create an on-trend manicure that looks elegant and instills a sense of inner calm. Plus, it’ll match your winter outfits!

4. MAC - Small Eye Shadow

Instagram will no doubt be infused with makeup tutorials that feature deep blue and navy eyeshadow hues. Get ahead of the game with this powder matte eye shadow. It’s both blendable and buildable so you can choose to either wear it alone or pair it with complementary colours to create an eye-catching look.

5. 3INA Makeup - The Color Mascara Dark Blue

If you don’t fancy flaunting a full eye, why not add a delicate touch of navy to your lashes with this mascara? The thin brush allows you to reach every lash and make them look thicker and more voluminous with just a pop of colour.

6. NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lipstick

Of course, if you are feeling adventurous, you could always try out a blue lipstick? It looks great on dark to olive skin tones but can also be worn by those with light skin tones (provided they apply a little blush and bronzer too).

7. Matrix Total Results - Brass Off Brunette Neutralising Blue Shampoo

Don’t worry, this shampoo won’t actually dye your hair blue! Its blue hue simply neutralises brassy tones, refreshing and cleansing lightened brown hair. Use it two to three times a week and your tresses will look as good as they did when you first stepped out of the hairdressers!

8. Fudge - Paintbox Hair Colourant

Though, if you did want to dye your hair blue, this is the product do it with! A semi-permanent hair dye that is enriched with moisturising ingredients and keratin, it stains your hair cuticles with a vibrant blue hue while also hydrating each strand. The result? Luscious, shiny and very blue hair!

Embrace this Classic Blue Glossies! It’s a shade you’ll definitely be seeing more of this year.
