Colors of the Year 2016

Hi all 🙂 Today I am going to talk about something pretty interesting. Today my post is about Colors of the Year 2016. Makeup is all about playing with colors and this year its going to be all pastel. Pantone has announced the official colors of 2016. And for the first time ever, Pantone has chosen two colors and both the colors are simply stunning – Rose Quartz and Serenity. Every year Pantone chooses a color of the year which they believe will rule the world of fashion, makeup, home decor and design. Last year it was Marsala.


This year, it is a much softer take for Colors of the Year. Rose Quartz is a shade of palest pink while Serenity is baby blue. Rose Quartz is a gentle tone that conveys composure and compassion, while Serenity brings a feeling of relaxation and respite even in difficult times. In today’s world, people are seeking mindfulness and well being to deal with modern day stress. According to Pantone, these two colors when joined together demonstrate a wonderful balance between warm rose and cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a calming sense of order and peace.

Rose Quartz and Serenity

Rose Quartz is a great shade for cheeks, lips and nails. It also helps to get rid of negative emotion. Serenity, on the other hand, is a little less versatile, but still can add a magnetic charm to eyes and nails. Now lets take a look at how we can incorporate these two stunning shades in our beauty routine.

Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel Cotton Candy No. 22 – A very pretty shade of pink. This soft, relaxing shade of rose is as adorable as fluffy cloud.

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil Shade Electra – A gel texture eyeliner packed in a sleek pencil. A beautiful baby blue shade that adds glamour and shine to the eyes. Go with a thin line for that ‘serenity’ shade and for more dramatic look, just build up the color.

Makeup Revolution Lip Gloss Tube Shade Touch – A beautiful warm toned pink for ‘perfect pout’. The best part is its intense color pay off and beautiful shine without any stickiness.

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush Shade Pink – Give your cheeks a lovely rosy glow with this Maybelline blush. The light golden tint gives it a beautiful shimmery touch.

Nykaa Shimmer Nail Enamel Caviar Ice No. 101 – A cool, blue nail polish to add some ‘serene glow’ to your winter look. And that too without going over-the-top.

This is how I Paired both colors together. 🙂 🙂
