Pantone Inc. has announced that the official colour of 2013 is emerald green. Executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, said in a press release, “Green is the most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other colour in the spectrum. It’s also the colour of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other colour conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”
Emerald has already started to trickle into the beauty-sphere, and as a green-eyed gal, I’m pretty darn thrilled that it’s making a comeback. Rich, vivid gem colours predominantly appear in the cooler months, and I’ll be waiting with bated breath until then. Not sure how to incorporate it into your beauty look?
