How to wear Pantone’s colour of the year

Now that #millenialpink has reached peak proliferation, Pantone drops a new colour of the year—and as the zeitgeist on all things hue related we’re sure to be seeing it that bad Tinder date you keep running into, right? Luckily for us, Living Coral, has the fresh new vibe we crave. It’s the cool little sister, it’s exciting (like biting into a Frosty Fruit with your eyes exciting) and it looks just so pretty splashed all over your face.

“It’s super wearable!” says MECCA Senior Artist Sally Axford who created this look. “Coral warms up the complexion and is literally a combination of a lot of the skin’s undertones—pink and yellow. As a result, it suits nearly every complexion in differing intensities, from pastel to pinky-peach to a bold tangerine. Let’s be honest—the best part is that you probably have it in your makeup bag already!” If you don’t…scroll through our edit of coral faves below and hit play now to try Axford’s take with a delectably dewy flushed cheek, glossy lids (like a fresh cut apricot) and a pop of coral on the pout.
