How Will Pantone’s Colors Of 2021 Influence Beauty?


It seems as if Pantone couldn’t land on just one color for 2021. The trend forecaster predicts a combo to guide trends in fashion, design and beauty next year: Illuminating and Ultimate Gray, a bright yellow and a light gray.

According to the company, they’re “two independent colors that highlight how different elements come together to support one another…practical and rock solid, but at the same time, warming and optimistic, the union of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is one of strength and positivity.” Aptly, a light in the dark, if you will.
