A few weeks ago, the colour authority Pantone announced the new Colour of the Year for 2020. Some past shades include Living Coral, which was the bright, cheerful colour assigned to 2019, and Ultra Violet, which was the moody hue for 2018. For next year, they picked a familiar shade that is known for its calming and confidence-boosting properties (which we ALL need after 2019, tbh) and also makes for some pretty rad makeup looks: Classic Blue.

Pantone 19-4052: Classic Blue: the shade of 2020

Recently Pantone announced that Classic Blue would be the colour for 2020. This shade is all about inducing a state of calm and embracing new opportunities.


Of course, it didn’t take long for beauty brands and makeup lovers to get behind this versatile, flattering shade and suggest ways to wear it.

When it comes to cosmetics, blue is a great colour because it is so versatile. It suits all skin tones. Brighter shades might be intimidating, but this mellow variety can make for either edgy (blue lips, anyone?) or sophisticated beauty looks.

And we can’t wait to see it flooding our Insta feeds in the upcoming year. 2020 is going to be a blue year in the best possible way. We’re ready!
