Face Off: The Pantone Colors of the Year

Every year the color experts at Pantone name a color that will serve as the “it” trend in fashion, home décor, beauty and beyond in the seasons to come. This year for the first time two shades were chosen: rose quartz and serenity.

According to Pantone, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

Whether you’re a trend follower or not, it’s still fun to seek out these colors especially when they evoke words like “calm” and “relaxation.”

I got pretty inspired while searching through some of my favorite products for shades of rose quartz and serenity. I always forget about blue mascara! It’s a subtle way to add a simple, surprising pop to your look. The same for light bubble gum pink lips.

    The best thing about these colors from a beauty/fashion perspective, is that they’re wonderfully complementary for any hair color, eye color, etc. Cannot wait to see how they make their festival and wedding season debuts <3 Literal perfection! xoxo
