Pantone Colour of the Year "Ultraviolet"

Kristen Von Riesen - Pure Anada Makeup Artist

One of my favorite annual traditions is creating a look involving the Pantone Color of the Year! It’s often a color that is a bit “out there”, so it’s fun to incorporate it into a makeup look! And this year didn’t disappoint either! Ultraviolet is pretty bold. What do you think of this year’s Pantone shade? It will make a really lovely spring/fall color for clothing and accessories. Ever wanted to paint a room a vibrant purple? Now is the time!

Wondering what Ultraviolet looks like? Look no further! Pure Anada's shadow called Tropical Violet perfectly embodies the Pantone Color of the Year. I had so much fun with this look. I made it into a slight smoky eye look with a berry lip color. But it would look exquisite as an eyeliner too! Just dampen your angled liner brush, dip it into Tropical Violet and apply.

The key to applying a bright color is to keep the rest of the look subtle. If you’re wearing a bold lip color, stick with a more natural eyeshadow look. If you’re going bold with your eyeshadow or eyeliner, keep the lips on the lighter side. But don’t be afraid to have fun with color!

The Look:

Just a hint of highlight under the brow and in the inner corner using Stardust.
Clouded shadow blended generously into the crease.
Tropical Violet foiled (applied with a damp brush) onto the eyelid and smudged under the eyes.
Magic Mauve dotted onto the inner eyelid.
Liquid Liner in Ink along the upper lashline.
Loads of Black Mascara.

Altantic Bisque Liquid Foundation blended with Light Tinted Moisturizer.
Very Fair Concealer under the eyes.

Sweet Pea Blush on the apples of the cheeks.
Alluring Contour under the cheekbones.
Lustrous Highlighter above the cheekbones.

Slate Pureline Pencil blended with an angled liner brush.

Razzberry Lipstick (blend it in with your ring finger or blot with a tissue for a more subtle look).
