How to add Ultra Violet, Pantone’s colour of the year to your makeup routine
A few days ago Pantone (the global colour trend forecaster) announced Ultra Violet as the colour of the year 2018. They described it as a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful shade of purple”. If you have an inclination towards the cosmos and celestial galaxies, you will find yourself drooling over this colour. And if, like us, you are makeup fiends too, you’re bound to start conjuring up ways to add a hint of it to your makeup! Well, there are plenty of ways! Here’s how you can do it…



Without a doubt, this shade will look stellar on the eyes! Don’t believe us? Try blending a gorgeous shade of deep purple with a black eye shadow on your lid and watch magic being created! It would be pretty cool to wear Pantone’s colour of the year 2018 on your eyes, won’t it?


You can create this look using the violet hue from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Royal Persia.




Violet lips? Yes, please! This definitely isn’t the shade for the faint-hearted. Every time a celebrity makes a public appearance sporting violets and purple lips, they make it to the next day’s news! But that’s what makes the colour so appealing. It’s a head turner. Incorporate the Pantone Colour of the year 2018 in your makeup with a bold, statement-y violet lip.




Let your usual gold and silver highlighters take a backseat and make way for violet highlighter–a futuristic, blinding shade that’ll make all your celestial makeup dreams come true!




Mermaid lashes, the recent makeup trend got us all talking can be tweaked and the colour of the year can be used to create deep, violet lashes! You can either opt for coloured mascara like the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Royal Blue which comes close to the shade Ultra Violet, or opt for stunning violet falsies! How gorgeous do they look?




Why stay restricted to only makeup, when you can incorporate this stunning colour into your tresses as well? Galaxy hair colour is a trend that’s still going strong and we love hues of Ultra Violet in hair! Looks stunning, doesn’t it?




We couldn’t possibly miss out of ultra violet nails that are literally the answer to all your galaxy nail dreams! What’s not to love?

We love this stunning shade of violet and can’t wait to try out all the makeup looks that can be created with it! Can you?
