Each year's colour is selected based upon marco-trends and can be inspired by anything from art and media to socioeconomic and political conditions.

Grey and Yellow

From the Classic Blue of 2020… to the contrasting grey and yellow of 2021, this year features the marriage of two colours conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.

Practical but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of grey and yellow is one of strength and positivity. It is a story of colour that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.

Colour Blocking - Pantone Colour in Practice

Colour-blocked eyeshadow involves creating rectangular "blocks" of bright eyeshadow, as opposed to blending colour on the eye lid. The blocked look creates independent shapes to add an entirely new dimension to the eye and is a major Instagram trend, with over 106,000 hits for the hashtag #colourblocking. Here’s how colour blocking, and colour of the year can be incorporated!
