The Best 15 Eye Makeup Products Inspired By The 2020 Colour Of The Year ‘Classic Blue’.

Categories : Makeup

It is official ‘Classic Blue’ is 2020’s Colour Of The Year! The bold Classic Blue was chosen as the colour of the year by the world-renowned brand, Pantone and there are some pretty cool reasons to why it was chosen. Firstly, because it is a multisensory colour where you can connect the colour to each of your five senses! It tastes like blue velvet, feels elegant, looks classy, smells warm and you can listen to blue almost everywhere, including politics! In a statement by Laurie Pressman, the Vice President of the Pantone Colour Institute, said, “The Pantone Colour of the Year highlights the relationship between trends in colour and what is taking place in our global culture at a moment in time”. Classic blue is a colour that reflects what individuals feel they need. It is the colour that represents hope and unity. As per a statement from the company, this deep blue shade symbolises protection, stability, peace, and confidence, as well as encourage deep thinking, open mindfulness, and communication. 

The 2020’s Classic Blue, is no stranger to the beauty world. Remember, Lupita Nyong’o’s bold blue eyes to the Oscar or Aiswarya Rai’s unconventional blueliners to Cannes? Our bad girl Riri has been spotted in a few funky blue eyes looks as well. Emma Watson gave the classic blue a classic touch it deserves when she wore a subtle blue eyeliner during her United Nations Equality speech. Now, so who said blue ain’t gonna look good in makeup! Remember though, this classic blue is the warm and comforting kind blue not bright turquoise, soft sky blue or neon ocean blue. The Classic Blue is a darker, more stable kinda blue like the dawn skies. Now, this tasteful blue has officially become the colour of the year, which means we are no longer bound to blues for only nights or special events. It’s a hue that will take over everyday meetings and summer poolside conversations.

And unlike the last decade, makeup companies and artistes are reimagining the shade much more beautifully than before. You can actually have blue mascaras, eye shadow palettes and of course, the staple, blueliners for those looking to have fun, but not go out of their comfort zone. You can do wonders with this beautiful blue shade! Go bold and bright, smudged and smoky, or use it to add a subtle hint of colour. If you are going for a bold look then, apply a darker blue underneath the eyes and on top of the eyelid right, and left of the iris. In the middle of the eyelid, place a lighter blue for a beautiful halo effect. And for a blue take on your classic smoky look, smudge a dark blue eye pencil inside and around your eyes and set with a dark blue eyeshadow. Add a lighter metallic blue into the inner corners of your eyes to make them look more refined.

Do all these talks about blue make you want to rock out Classic Blue as we enter a new decade?
