Make-up shades that you need now – according to the Pantone colours of the year…

This year Pantone announced not one, but two colours of the year with Rose Quartz (a pale, cotton-candy pink) and Serenity (a cool periwinkle blue). The colours were chosen to convey rosy warmth and tranquillity, ‘reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,’ says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Institute. Naturally, make-up was the first to receive the Pantone treatment — from lipsticks, eye shadows, highlighters and blushers, it’s time to stock up your make-up bag and incorporate these shades into your every day look. With these essentials you’ll be floating on cloud nine for the rest of the year!

And lets not forget that the new (and extremely yum) Passionfruit Long White Vodka‘s are the perfect Pantone colour too! With triple-distilled vodka and naturally flavoured NZ sparkling water, these drinks should be your new best friend this summer. Light and refreshing, and made with apple juice and locally sourced ingredients such as Keri Keri lemons and Hawkes Bay apples, you’ll be hooked.
