PANTONE 16-1546

You are here

With the announcement of PANTONE’s Colour of the Year as 16-1546 – or in nicer terms, Living Coral – we look at ways that you can incorporate this beautiful optimistic colour into your beauty routine.

We’re going to keep things subtle here, as it’s such a vibrant colour, you don’t want to go too over the top with it.


Glossier’s Cloud Paint (£15) in Beam or Dawn is a fab way to incorporate Living Coral into your everyday look. Cloud Paint’s gel-cream formula glides beautifully onto your cheeks for the ultimate healthy, flushed-from-within glow.


NARS’ Satin Lipstick in Niagara Coral (£21) gives the most gorgeous pink undertone to the lips, which is perfect for brightening fairer complexions. Infused with antioxidants, NARS’ Satin Lipstick will keep your lips feeling moisturised and nourished – bonus!


Essie 74 Tart Deco Coral nail varnish (£7.99) is the perfect way to sport this trending colour. With its beautiful orangey/peach tones, this Essie varnish will give an artistic burst of colour to your nails for the perfect manicured masterpiece.


Bold, vibrant and fashion-forward, Fudge Paintbox will help you achieve the ultimate Living Coral colour (available in-salon at Fudge Professional salons). These semi-permanent colours are free of ammonia and peroxide, and help to increase shine and lustre in the hair. Speaking on the new Pantone Living Coral trend, Tracy Hayes, Head of Colour at Fudge Professional, says,

It’s easy for stylists to create the Living Coral colour for their clients; by mixing two parts Paintbox Coral Blush with one part Paintbox Pink Riot. Mixing equal parts of each will result in an even pinker hue.

So there you have it. Four great ways to add Living Coral into your beauty routine.
