One of the annual announcements we are most excited to hear is Pantone’s Color of the Year. The Color Institute always has an exciting hue choice that greatly influences our style and beauty looks throughout the year. The 2020 color of choice is Classic Blue. Unlike its predecessors Coral and Ultra Violet, this shade is more on the wearable side. In graphic designer language, that’s the color 19-4052, a deep, midnight blue that’s so easy to mix, match and wear in endless ways. According to a press release from Pantone, Classic Blue “symbolizes protection, stability, peace, and confidence, as well as encouraging deep thinking, open mindfulness, and communication.” Aside from the official explanation, this midnight blue tone is begging to be turned into a makeup look. Need some inspo? Ahead, we bring you the most creative ways to wear Classic Blue makeup.
Pantone’s annual color choice is no longer described simply as a tone. This year, the Color Institute has decided to characterize the Color of the Year with additional sensory experiences. That said, Classic blue has a velvety texture with a salty, earthy scent like the ocean.
