Here’s How to Wear Coral – the Colour of 2019!

January 11, 2019Notino
It was revealed a few weeks ago that the official Pantone colour for 2019 is Living Coral – a perfect balance between red, orange, and pink. It will bring new energy into our every day, new optimism and a sense of happiness into our lives. You simply *have to* include it in your wardrobe, your home decor, and of course in your makeup.


Coral is the perfect choice to make people with dark hair stand out and shine. That being said, it also goes well with blonde hair, especially if it has a warm undertone. In this case, the more intense the coral shade is, the better. Incorporating coral into your outfit could get trickier for redheads, but don’t worry – you can simply use the colour of 2019 on your accessories or in your makeup look.

Coral Manicure

Your affair with coral can start at your fingertips. You can be sure all brands will have a coral nail varnish this year – for instance, Rimmel’s 60 seconds Flip Flop in Coral Blush is drying incredibly quickly and it lasts for ages. Or you can try Coralium from the Chanel Le Vernis line and enjoy the blinding shine along with a fantastic strengthening and nourishing effect.

Coral Lips

Coral can be the perfect shade for your lips. But beware: your teeth should be sparkling white, otherwise this colour will make them look yellow. So make an appointment with your dental hygienist and then start experimenting. You can, for instance, try the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo liquid lipstick in Natural Coral which makes lips appear bigger and is amazing for both day and evening.

Living Coral for Your Eyes and Cheeks

This year’s Pantone colour is just perfect for your eye makeup. Try the Makeup Revolution Life on The Dance Floor eyeshadow palette, especially the Guest List shades that give you many different options. And don’t forget a coral blusher (like the Coral Temptation Blush by Bourjois) or highlighter.

This Year’s Colour for Your Hair

Looking for a hairdo update? Coral will make your current shade and cut seem livelier and make you shine especially in the summer! You don’t even have to use a permanent dye when you have L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup or Colorista Washout that will last through 5 to 15 washes depending on your chosen shade.

Coral Accessories

Still don’t feel like you have enough coral in your life? Then reach for the gorgeous bottle of a fragrance that symbolizes happiness: Lancôme La Vie Est Belle is full of fruit, precious iris, and sweet chocolate truffles. Or try the All About Eyes Rich hydrating eye cream by Clinique. The coral-tinted pot hides a treasure of a moisturizer that helps you get rid of fine lines and puffiness and stimulates natural collagen production.

So let your 2019 be full of energy and beauty brought by Living Coral!
