It’s that time of the year again! The time that the Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is released! What is the Pantone Color of the Year 2020? It’s Classic Blue 19-4052 and the question is, will it translate well to makeup?
I gotta admit every single time Pantone releases a new Color of the Year I have hopes it’ll be some variation of coral or orange because I’m still stuck in 2012 when Tangerine Tango made its debut. But hey, I can do blue maybe.
According to Pantone they selected the Classic Blue because it was a beacon of reassurance, confidence, and connection in an unstable and emotional time in our world. It’s a very strong shade with deep roots embedded in the American culture. Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice. It’s a color represented in our flag, in the uniforms of the hard working men and woman that risk their lives daily on the police force, and the shades of the waters on our planet that signifies life.
You probably won’t see a ton of makeup collections that will embrace the shade simply because the Pantone Trend has sort of died away. The only brand that always gets very involved with the Pantone Color of the Year lately is Butter London. I’m sure they’ll launch something fabulous including a nail polish in the Classic Blue shade. Speaking of which, that’s one area in the makeup world that will get plenty of love. I’m positive plenty of nail brands like Essie, Butter London, etc will embrace this shade for Spring 2020 launches.
What about you?
Do you think you’d like to see some sort of smoky blue eye palette to celebrate the Pantone Color of the Year 2020?
I can do blue with gold…! It looks pretty brilliant!
