Pantone color of the year 2016 in beauty & fragrance world

color of the year

For the first time in history Pantone picked two colors of the year 2016!

These are Rose Quarts and Serenity. The combination of these two colors show the balance between a warm rose shade and a cold blue shade. The two colors look perfect when put together in your outfits, makeup, home design and we can see them reflected in the design of perfumes and beauty needs as well. 

Last time when a pastel color was picked a color of the year was 10 years ago and so it is a nice comeback now.

Makeup using the Pantone colors of the year

Rose Quartz and Serenity will look pretty in your makeup. Compared to Marsala, the color of 2015 which is perfectly suitable for evening makeup, the pastels are amazing for both day and night makeup. This spring and summer season hightlight your cheeks and lips with a rose blush or a highlighter. Blue is the color for your eye makeup this year. Pastel blue eyeshadow with the hint of rosy shadows and a contrasting black line will give you a fresh trendy look.

In 2015 Marsala, the color of Sicilian wine projected into the fragrance world in the form of Oriental scents - heavier and sweet. Everything has changed.

The light Rose Quarts shades are reflected in floral scents with dominating notes of rose, peony, iris, lily of the valley, cherry blossom. All is perfected with a dash of spices, such as rose pepper, and refreshed with citruses.
