Say goodbye to Millennial Pink as the new year brings another hot new color trend! Pantone's color for 2018 is called Ultra Violet and we're surely about to see it everywhere including the beauty department!
Don't be wary of hopping on the Ultra Violet bandwagon as this electric hue is just too pretty to pass up! If you want an on-trend pop of color to your beauty looks, then here are the easiest ways to take rock this shade and own it!
1. Lip Color
Nothing says a pop of color like a splash of purple on your lips. A choice like NYX's Intense Butter Gloss in Berry Strudel makes for a bold statement that screams a risk-taking attitude. A silky, gloss texture makes the hue shine even more!
2. Eye Shadow
Elevate your usual smokey eye by painting your lids with cooler and more vivid pigments. Kylie Cosmetics' The Purple Pallete offers nine different colors to mix and match from. Beacause experimenting is half the fun in make up, try out a little of everything from striking metallics like Trophy to cute pastels such as Lilac.
You can never go wrong with a dash of shimmer across your cheekbones. Highlighter adds dimension and that much-needed glow to your face that enhances your overall look. Dare to shine with Fenty Beauty's Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Unicorn to feel that hint of fantasy!
Pastel-colored hair has been a huge trend, but you can go bolder with deep, lush violet. A color like Lime Crime's Unicorn Hair in Pony exudes a gothic and mysterious vibe. Your new purple tresses are sure to be a headturner!
Skip the French tips, accent nails, or your usual muted manicure. Go for a deep purple lacquer like OPI's Turn on the Northern Lights for a space-inspired vibe! A bomb set of Ultra Violet tips will surely compliment any look!
