Pantone Colour of the year 2017

With much anticipation the Pantone colour of the year has been announced for 2017, in turn setting trends in interiors, furniture, clothing and makeup. The shade aptly named ‘Greenery’ is a lovely forest green and is described by Pantone as “A fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”

The pantone colour of the year always seeps into modern day culture and trends, as it did this year with the two shades of 2016, rose quartz and serenity. These colours did in turn impact the 2016 colour palette, with the soft pink colour rose quartz especially being a big influence in homewares, clothing and makeup.

With that being said we have had a little look around to find some of the most gorgeous green shades of makeup to get you into the spirit of the Pantone colour of the year, which you will be sure to see lots of in 2017.
