It’s a new year and that means a new Pantone Color of the Year! This year’s color, Classic Blue (PANTONE 19-4052 to be exact), evokes a serene calm, suggests unwavering stability, and gives us a gentle reminder that a new day brings new opportunities. In a world with constant movement and commotion, this timeless blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable, stable foundation on which we can reflect, connect, and grow.
Classic Blue is associated with the subdued skies of dusk and the inherent knowledge that a new day is coming. And if you’re like us, you’re finding this universally beloved shade easy to embrace. Inspired by Classic Blue’s steadfast resilience and tranquility, we’ve put together a list of beauty products that will leave you feeling as calm, cool, and collected as this celebrated shade.
Beauty of the Night
As day fades to night, we take the time to slow down, gather our thoughts, and relax. Nothing helps us wind down after a long day like taking our makeup off and pampering our skin. To rid skin of grime and dirt start your evening routine with Erno Laszlo Multi-Phase Makeup Remover. The duo-phase formula gently whisks away makeup and impurities while nourishing cucumber and aloe extract hydrate. Skin feels clean and soft without feeling dry or tight.
Another blue-hued skincare favorite is Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. The silky oil absorbs deeply into skin to hydrate and refresh skin while you sleep. Soothing blue tansy and German chamomile actively work to calm and reduce redness for brighter, rested looking skin.
If your evening calls for a more intensive skincare treatment, reach for Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Modeling Mask. Similar to the vast blue of the night sky, this ultra-hydrating mask gets its key ingredient from the expansive blue oceans. Marine algae locks in moisture to restore essential hydration for soft, glowing skin. Not to mention, you’ll feel very on-trend wearing this true-blue mask—even if it’s only for five to ten minutes.
Seize the Day
When it’s time to rise and shine, start your day with a beauty routine that soothes and inspires the way Pantone’s Classic Blue does. Elevate your shower time with Jack Black Turbo Body Bar with Blue Lotus and Lava Rock. This energizing, deep-cleansing bar scrubs away dirt and exfoliates the body for clean, smooth, healthy skin. Fragrant natural blue lotus and ginkgo biloba gives the senses an invigorating boost to combat fatigue.
For flawless skin that looks fresh hour after hour we love Omorovicza Blue Diamond Supercream. The rich cream goes on velvety smooth and imparts a silky lightweight finish. Ultra-innovative ingredients like diamond peptides, arabinogalactans, amino-acids, and copper work to prolong the life of healthy skin cells while improving elasticity and firmness. Copper gluconate slows production of sebum, preventing unwanted shine. So, go ahead—carpe diem! This Supercream can handle anything.
BONUS: True Blue Makeup
We never shy away from a bold eye look. And we can’t think of a better way to create an eye-catching, Classic Blue look than with KOSAS 10-Second Eye Shadow in the azure hue Nitrogen. This ultra-easy to apply liquid shadow (we mean it, 10 seconds is all you need) goes on smooth for gorgeous buildable color that dries fast and lasts for hours. The watercolor like pigments deliver a modern splash of color while skin-loving ingredients soothe those delicate eyelids. It’s just what you need for making a cool Classic Blue inspired statement in 2020.
