Pantone aims to bring us all together with the hue of Very Peri as its Color of the Year 2022. Very Peri has a distinct periwinkle blue shade with the slightest undertones of red and violet. According to Pantone, Very Peri inspires creativity and opens up a new vision to rewrite our lives. The Long Island Beauty School has the following tips on incorporating Very Peri into creating unique looks.

High Glam Eyes

Very Peri was designed to shine and with endless opportunities. You can make the most out of the shade by adding a gloss effect to any eye looks. Apply the hue all over as shadow to the lids and finish off with a touch of highlighter. Instead of the highlighter, a bit of glitter works too. You could even frame out the entire eye area with Very Peri by applying it to the upper and lower lids.

Use Very Peri as an accent color for those looking to sport a more understated look. Choose a neutral brown eyeshadow and then highlight the corners of the eyes with Very Peri. Matte eyeshadow makeup can also look attractive when using the hue. 

Another makeup option is to skip the shadow altogether and rely exclusively on mascara and eyeliner. Liquid eyeliner in Very Peri standouts because of its intense color. Yves Saint Laurent has a beautiful Crushliner Waterproof eyeliner that is sure to give you that pop of color. Pair the eyeliner with dark mascara or other neutral colors. Pantone recommends color palettes to use with Very Peri, including the Star of the Show, which has several neutral shades, including Deep Taupe, Volcanic Glass, White Sand, and Cloud Dancer.

Bold Lips and Nails

Matte and glossy lipsticks will look striking with the application of Very Peri. However, you could go more subtle with lip gloss in the hue. A shimmering lipstick could add a bit of fun to the lilac-similar shade. If you are looking for a bold soft matte finish, Fenty Beauty has a gorgeous Stunna Lip in the color Undefeated. 

The Pantone Color of the Year will also be seen in nail color, especially once the weather warms. OPI and Sally Hansen both have periwinkle purple shades that provide a lot of shimmer to the nails.

Fun With Very Peri Hair

Although you can embrace Very Peri with a few simple hair accessories, you could dye your hair periwinkle if you love the color. Overtone makes a purple hair dye specifically for darker hair if you have brown hair. Arctic Fox, Wella, and Manic Panic all have periwinkle shades that pop when used on lighter hair.
