How To Wear Pantone’s Spring Palette On Your Face

“Playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”

Spring is coming and what would a season be without Pantone’s seasonal colour palettes? Earlier this year we saw them announce Greenery as the Colour of the Year. Their Spring 2017 palette follows in much of the same vein – think bold and earthy, nature-inspired colours rather than soft pastels. Celebrating nature seems to be Pantone’s thing this year, and we’re all aboard!

The Spring colours are a glorious celebration of vitality and relaxation, reminiscent of hues found in nature, according to Pantone. Just what we need for 2017, we say. Here are some ways to work these gorgeous colours into your makeup looks this spring.

PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow
NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Halo, RM 28
