How To Wear 2019’s Trending Colour – Beauty Edition

Pantone has recently announced it’s Colour of the Year for 2019, and it’s probably already in your makeup kit. Oh yeah, because 2019’s IT colour is Living Coral, a vibrant, pretty pink orange hue that complements all skin tone.

According to Pantone, Living Coral is a nurturing colour that appears in our natural surroundings and displays a lively presence within social media. In other words, Living Coral is the new trending colour for #Instagram #Facebook.

This shade of colour is so versatile, that you can wear it on your cheeks, eyes and lips. You can even paint your whole face coral and still look like a bombshell. But this colour is not technically new, as it has been in the market for years. And while lots of Living Coral-inspired products are bound to launch in 2019, there are also plenty of already-available items that can help you incorporate the Color of the Year into your beauty look. Check out some of our favorites:
