Pantone recently announced ‘Living Coral’ as their colour of the year. The choice of this colour is nothing less than a tribute to the marvelous coral reefs and the role they play in sustaining the underwater ecosystem. We can’t be happier as this ‘animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone’ is just the warm, energetic, and playful colour that our spirits have been craving for. Plus, it is one of those hues that’s definitely wearable on the eyes, lips, nails, and more. As we get ready for coral and its myriad shades to take center stage this year, here’s a list of makeup products to help you slay this colour trend in style.
