If you still haven’t heard, we have our new Pantone color of 2019! Make way! Millennial Pink out, Living Coral in!

Pantone announced the Pantone color of 2019 and we are definitely loving it! Giving off the fresh vibrant yet subtle coral hue, we have Pantone Living Coral.

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral

Definitely life-affirming with its warm hue, Living Coral suggests life, energy, and comfort along with its golden undertone. The new Pantone Color of the Year brings a new energy but with a softer edge. If you take a long look at it, Living Coral suggest lighthearted activity and intimacy in a subtle approach. It reflects our need for optimism and joyful pursuits in life.

Pantone believes that in this era, we crave human and social interaction. We crave for warmth and love. And as cheesy as it sounds, it’s the truth! And Living Coral embodies that. It’s the color that embodies humanizing and heartening qualities straight from the bottom of the sea.

I admit a pretty bold move from Pantone for such a mellow color. It does not only reflects life in fashion but also life in the environment, particularly in the ocean. Life starts in nature and it ends with nature as well. Well played, Pantone!

How to wear Living Coral

Like we’ve mentioned, Living Coral embodies optimism and joyful pursuits. Vibrant yet subtle, it will definitely add that playful expression to our lives. So you better know how to sport this color! I’ve listed affordable makeup and fashion pieces to add life to your 2019 look!

For a long-lasting matte finish, this is is my go-to. As a messy eater myself, my lipstick is prone to smudging, hence, not lasting the day. But after discovering Maybelline’s newest Superstat Liquid Lipstick in Heroine, I no longer have to retouch every after meal. The Heroine shade adds life to your lips and brightens your face as well. Yes, it can be tricky when you apply it but still, it’s worth the effort. Trying to remove it is really hard, this one really lives up to its name.
