Since Pantone announced 2019’s Color of the Year to be Living Coral, the vibrant shade has been frequently spotted on everything from furniture to shoes and bags. Of course, who wouldn’t want more of “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge”? While the shade is fun and invigorating, it can be a little daunting to purchase an outfit or accessory in such a vibrant tone.
Why not get your hands on beauty products that sport the shade instead? You’re sure to love seeing these products on your vanity as much as you enjoy applying them.
