On Trend Beauty Buys Based On Pantone’s Colour Of The Year 2021!

It’s that time of year again – Pantone has announced its official Colour Of The Year for 2021. And, of course, we’re using it as inspiration for all our beauty looks going forward!

What Is Pantone’s Colour Of The Year 2021? 

Well, for start, there’s actually TWO colours for 2021. 

Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is one of strength and positivity. 

“A marriage of colour conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.”

PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray demonstrates solid and dependable elements, which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. While PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow, sparkling with vivacity. Together, these two independent colours highlight how different elements come together to support one another. Which is exactly what we’re all about after 2020!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
