How To Rock Makeup In The 2018 Pantone Colour: Ultra Violet!

By  | 

The Pantone colour of 2018 is Ultra Violet. As they put it, ‘A dramatically provocative shade, that lights the way to what is yet to come.’ So, think midnight, think purple skies, stars, and healing crystals. Get the gist?

Now, salons, stores, and makeup brands everywhere are prepping for the year with loads of Ultra Violet. Here’s how you can add the mystical colour to your makeup collection.

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick Vivid Violet Pink (Rs 356)

1. Violet Lips

Rock a badass, violet lip to pay homage to the colour of the year. Try this shade on at night, and eyes will follow you around a room!

Matrix So.Color 4.62Red Violet Medium Brown (Rs 550)

2. Violet Hair?

Add a tinge of violet to your hair with this deep purple, brown hair colour. It may not show on darker hair as well, so you may want to get your hair bleached first. That’s if you’re willing. You can also take it to the salon and just get highlights. You can do a global colour without bleaching your hair, if you’re satisfied with subtle colour. You can also purchase different shades of purple, and ask your hairstylist to go for it! Come out with hair looking like a crystal ball.

Eye paints are not eyeshadow, my friend! They’re eyeshadow upgraded. Go for an intense, but fun purple eye look with the L’Oréal eye shadow paints.

Deborah Mat Leather Effect Nail Enamel – 3 Violet (Rs 350)

4. Violet Nail Polish

Why not opt for a purple night-hued nail color? This nail color has a satin matte finish that gives a leather effect to your nails. It’ll give your nails major noir vibes.
