‘Very Peri’ Pantone’s Color of the Year For 2022 and How To Wear It For Your Soorat.
If you didn't already know, Pantone's Color of the Year is typically one of the most awaited announcements in the design industry.
As global trends in the world of fashion, industrial design, and interiors are overlapping more and more, so too is the beauty sector catching up fast to the latest color forecasts and using them to structure and predict what's to showcase in the latest eyeshadow palette or Nail Lacquer. Whether you work in a creative field or are just obsessed as we are at The Soorat to stay on top of the latest trends, then Pantone is one of the ways we set the tone for the year ahead. This year the Color Of the Year 2022 is….drum roll….. Very Peri. A periwinkle lavender shade that is arguably bridging the gap between the blue eye makeup trend and the purple eyeshadow trend to offer a more contemporary take on color cosmetics.
The beauty industry has alway recognized color as a critical form of communication. Using a certain color palette is also a great way to create and connect our ideas and emotions to engaging personas, unique Makeup Looks and to our overall mood. No longer is makeup the boring safe neutral nudes and reds that millennials have preferred. According to Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
The complexity of this new Very Peri in itself indicates the many shifts coming our way. This is not a boring lavender but a red violet infused with blue hue highlights reflecting the promise of endless possibilities in Eye Makeup to Lip Makeup to Nail Lacquers.
So banish your safe neutrals and let us indulge you with a few safe, and some bold choices of how to embrace and make ‘ Very Peri’ a part of your Soorat this year.
