Inspired by the Pantone colour of the year: Ultra Violet, we’re loving this unpredictable hue right now! The colour violet makes me think of a few things: flowers, disco, childhood, royalty and grape bubblegum!

We’ve already caught a glimpse of purple shades on runways all around the world, including Gigi Hadid rocking neon purple hair at the Jeremy Scott show at NYFW last month.

Being the bold colour it is, you’ve probably never thought to include this into your makeup routine until now! Wanting to ramp up your look and be a little ‘extra’ with this IT girl colour?

Adding a bit of violet to your look can make your features POP! Who would’ve thought we’d be a little obsessed with this shade right now… If you haven’t already, be prepared to see this colour everywhere this year!
