RAMAN CHOHAN, MASTER IN PERMANENT MAKEUP FROM CANADA LAUNCHES VICTRESS BEAUTY ACADEMY IN MUMBAI!
2016 has been a year of surprises. Pantone, the universally recognized body on all things colour, gave it’s surprise when it debuted a combo of two shades instead of one, as the Colors of The Year 2016. The two colours chosen are beautiful pastels- Rose Quartz, a soft blush-hued pink and Serenity, a tranquil shade of blue. Chosen for the airy, soothing vibes that these two colours give, the message that is out is clear: Relax.
Another surprise that Pantone gave out this year was to make the same colour catalogues for menswear and woman’s wear. With gender fluidity talks gaining more foothold than ever in the world, the combo of pink and blue also give a political statement that resonates with the collective need to break gender barriers.
Celebrities and designers have embraced the Pantone colour duo wholeheartedly with the hues being predominant, both on the runways as well as on the red carpets. It also helps that these two pastels merge harmoniously with each other and look flawless together. The genius of this combo lies in the fact that the warmth of rose quartz and the coolness of serenity create a perfect balance. They act as visual centers for calm when everything around is drenched in a multitude of hues.
The key to acing this pastel-hued trend is to wear one hue as a monotone dress while accessorizing with the other hue. But avoid going overboard with matching accessories as you run the risk of looking like a candy shop. Pairing neutrals like blacks, greys and whites with these hues will elevate the look and add that touch of sophistication. Another way to go is to add them subtly in your accessories: rose pink jewellery or a serenity scarf look great without being too feminine or sugary.
Which of the pastel colour duo is your favourite and how are you planning to incorporate it into your everyday style? Let us know!
