The Colour of 2020: Classic Blue – And Why You’ll Love It!
If your beauty stash is missing this traditional shade of blue, it’s time to change that! For the past twenty years, the Pantone Color Institute has been the biggest authority in colour trends that will rule the world of fashion, beauty, and design in a given year. Their colour for 2020? Classic blue. Which is wonderful new for all women, because this shade suits everyone from blondes and redheads to dark-haired beauties!
So – the colour for 2020 is classic blue, or 19-1052 Classic Blue, to give it its full name. And you know what the best part is? That this colour will make you the star of the show at special occasions as well as at work or at school, and will look fantastic on your nails, eyes, or hair. Enjoy this glorious year of cobalt blue, because colour trends come and go as fast as the latest popular Instagram filter.
It’s quite easy to incorporate the colour of 2020 into your makeup ritual. You can enjoy the striking intense blue for instance in the form of the L’Oréal Paris Superliner Matte Signature liquid eyeliner, or mix a few blue shades at once with the Lancôme Hypnôse Palette 5 Couleurs. During the day, keep your blue eye makeup subtle and subdued, but once the sun sets you can go a little wild and layer the blue for a more dramatic effect.
The colour trend of 2020 can even grace your lips. All it takes is a bit of courage and open-minded creativity. The NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lipstick in the shade Ex's Tears will cover your lips in an intense matte shade that is guaranteed to make you stand out! Maybe add a bit of gloss and shimmer with NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Goals, and your smile will be completely bewitching and utterly unique.
We usually want our nail varnish to dry quickly and last long – and a blue nail varnish in the form of the iconic Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in Bleu Majorelle will make these wishes come true.
Whether you’re looking for a radical change or just a more daring touch of colour for a party, blue is the right choice. It’s a bold, yet elegant colour. And blue hair is always so much fun!
You can start easy and try for instance balayage: apply the blue lightly to the entire length of your hair, and especially to your ends. That way you won’t look like a Smurf – instead, the blue will create an elegant frame to your face and give you a bit of French charm. Find out if blue is your style with the Colorista Hair Makeup one-day colour.
