PANTONE Color Of The Year 16-1546 Living Coral and Makeup from Pixi Beauty and Pop Beauty To Go With It 

The 2019 PANTONE Color of the Year is Living Coral 16-1546. It is described by PANTONE as a "An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge". What is going to make it so popular with people is that it is a color most people can wear. Coral is a mix of red-orange adding white. It is a color that normally most people would think of as warm but it has just enough cool to it that it can be worn by those with blue undertones to their skin. 


If you will look at this picture you will notice that the majority of the coordinating colors that go with Living Coral are actually cool tones. So I would say you could wear Living Coral on your entire face (eyes, lips and cheeks) or use the following colors on the eyes and save the Living Coral for the lips and cheeks. 

FOCAL POINT SHOWS HOW WELL THESE COLORS GO ALONG WITH LIVING CORAL. ABOVE SHOWS PANTONE  LIVING CORAL ENGAGING AND VIVIFYING THE PALETTE AS IT BECOMES THE FOCAL POINT IN THIS UNDERSTATED AND UPSCALE COMPOSED AND COOL COLOR GROUPING. 
Here are more color harmonies that you can use. I got these from the PANTONE Website. This shows you just how well the color goes with so many other colors, especially cosmetic colors. 

ABOVE IS TRIPPY, HALLUCINOGENIC SHADES WITH DIZZYING EFFECTS. THE HEDONISTIC COLOR RANGE IS PURE AND UNADULTERATED.  AN EXUBERANT RANGE OF JOYFUL COLOR

THIS IS UNDER THE SEA, A MIX OF COOL SHADES SUGGESTIVE OF A WATERY ENVIRONMENT THAT LIES BENEATH A TROPICAL ISLAND PARADISE. REMINISCENT OF A VIVID AND CHROMATIC ECOSYSTEM.

SHIMMERING SUNSET ARE WARM, BOLD AND BRILLIANT COLORS, SPLASHED ACROSS THE SKY AS THE SUN SETS AND RISES. THESE MAKE YOU THINK OF ENERGY AND LIFE.

SYMPATICO PAYS HOMAGE TO SKIN TONES AROUND THE WORLD AND THE SHADES WE USE TO ENHANCE OUR COMPLEXIONS. THESE COLORS CORRESPOND TO AN ARRAY OF BEAUTIFUL HUES THAT HUMANIZE, FUSING TOGETHER A PANOPLY OF INTERNATIONAL SKIN TONES WITH SOFT AND WARM COLORS WE LAYER ON TO CREATE A HEALTHY GLOW. 

So what are some gorgeous colors that go with Living Coral? I have two examples here from Pop Beauty and Pixi Beauty. I have a blush in Coral Crush from pop beauty's Prismatic Pop Illuminating Powder line ($12.00). And I have a lip gloss in Sweet Nectar from pixi by petra Lip Lift Max Glossy Lip Plumper ($14.00).

Pop Beauty's Prismatic Pop Illuminating Powder helps to "beam" up your favourite features amd make your skin "POP" with prismatic perfection! This ultra light reflecting illuminator seamlessly blends onto the skin for an ethereal finish; creating a multifaceted, three dimensional, luminous glow. Adding Coral Crush to your skin makes your face flush with bright, luminous color that makes you look sexy and glowing. 

Pixi Beauty's Lip Lift Max in Sweet Nectar is a volume-maximizing lip treatment with a cooling sensation and a glossy finish. It contains peptides to hydrate, firm and plump lips, aloe is added to heal, jojoba moisturizes and chamomile soothes the lips. It has a fresh mint flavor. Wear alone as a pre-plumping treatment for lip-color or on top of any lip look for a lacquered effect.

These are both quite pigmented products. You can see this from the swatches. They wear long and look great. The eyeshadow and mascara I am wearing is from Too Faced. The eyeliner is from Sigma Beauty.
