Five ways to incorporate ‘Living Coral’ into your beauty look

NEW YORK, Dec 8 — Pantone unveiled this week its ‘Colour of the Year 2019’, and the colour authority institute has deemed ‘Living Coral’ to be the next big thing, stating that the hue “embodies our desire for playful expression.” Want to get a head start on the trend? Here’s how.

The Lipstick
If anything epitomises the fun evoked by the colour coral, it is surely Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Volupté Tint-in-Balm’ in the shade ‘Flirt Me Coral’. In addition to providing a slick of sheer, playful colour, the scented balm carries the aroma of pomegranate and promises to nourish the lips, thanks to a blend of apricot butter and jojoba oil.

The Blush
Coral makes a gorgeous blusher shade, warming up the complexion for a healthy glow that isn’t too in your face. Check out this luminous powder version from Becca Cosmetics, in the hue ‘Snapdragon.’

The Serum
Not only does Milk Makeup’s cult ‘Watermelon Brightening Serum’ promise to brighten the skintone and hydrate the complexion, it also happens to be the perfect shade of coral for the new year. And, incidentally, ideally proportioned for popping into your purse.
