Living Coral | Pantone Colour of The Year

An eagerly awaited date for the diaries of interior design enthusiasts, fashion designers and make up artists, the annual Pantone Colour of the Year reveal can influence a whole host of industries. This year, the Pantone Colour of the Year is called Living Coral and we’re seeing an influx of pink tones cropping up everywhere.

“Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”


Injecting a pop of colour into our interiors is an easy way to effortlessly refresh our home decor, with Living Coral conveying warmth and comfort in its pink hues. The addition of a throw on your bed, a pillow case or a few home accessories can transform the look and feel of a room completely. With the sun finally showing itself as we move into the summer months it’s a the perfect time to make some simple updates.


If your calendar hasn’t already started to fill up with weddings, summer parties and BBQ’s it almost certainly will be soon. With an array of designers showcasing their SS19 collections back in the Autumn of 2018, we saw an influx of coral hues taking to the runways of designers such as Rejina Pyo, Fendi, Acne and Sacai to name a few all influenced by the Pantone Colour of 2019. Coral tones teamed with hessian inspired accessories are the perfect combination for all your summer occasion looks.

A pop of coral was regularly seen on the faces of SS19 runway models from designers such as Marc Jacobs and Rejina Pyo. From eye shadow and blusher to hair dye and lipstick, integrating a pop of coral into your makeup is the perfect way to take your look from spring into summer and the Summer Soiree’s ahead.

But, before you start adding pop’s of coral into your beauty regime, you need to prep your skin with a primer. This months Glossybox has everything that you need to get you looking and feeling great, including the Avant Skincare Pro Perfecting Collegen Touche Eclat Primer. Silky, lightweight and universal, it mattifies and softens your complexion, while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Apply a pea-sized amount to the centre of your face and blend outwards. It will perfectly prep your skin for flawless makeup application before your big event, helping your look to last even longer.
