Spring 2016 Pantone Snorkel Blue Peach Echo FOTD

A Spring 2016 FOTD Feat. Pantone Snorkel Blue and Peach Echo

Remember last week I told you we were having the worst weather in months, because I had evoked an ancient curse? Well, the wrath of the gods is still in full swing, or, to put it plainly, the weather sucks.

Since apparently we’re not going to get spring out here this year, I thought I’d try to get into that springy mood by having a look at Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2016. Alongside the omnipresent Serenity and Rose Quartz, Pantone selected eight other shades that best represent the upcoming season.

The color that most caught my attention was without a doubt Snorkel Blue. I don’t know if it was because it hinted at the beach vacation I was dreaming of while all I could see through my skylight was grey and rain, or because I just love these types of blues with a touch of green… but I immediately knew that I wanted to use it to create a spring look.

Since Carnival had already come and gone, the obvious choice was to use it on the eyes rather than on the lips, which I instead decided to paint peach. Peach Echo, to be precise!

Spring 2016 Pantone Snorkel Blue Peach Echo FOTDOn Pantone’s website, Snorkel Blue looks like it has a very light touch of green to it so, after a great deal of swatching, I found that the best product I owned to replicate it was this double-ended KIKO crayon from an old collection. By layering a tiny bit of the aqua teal on top of the cobalt on my hand, I got a pretty good match.

Unfortunately, though, using the cobalt on my eyes proved quite difficult, as it lifted whenever I tried to apply more product on top of what I had already applied. Going back in with the aqua teal was out of the question.

Spring 2016 Pantone Snorkel Blue Peach EchoCoincidentally enough, the only peach lip product I own is from the same KIKO collection. For some reason, peach is a color I never wear, but here I think it worked nicely: the final look is colorful, yet wearable. (Speaking of which… Did you read my post on Makeup and Beauty Blog on how to make crazy colors wearable?)

What shades do you tend to gravitate to in the spring? Are you going to use any of Pantone’s colors? And what do you usually pair blue with?

    I like the blue liner.

    That blue lippie they released was weird though, even by my standards.

    I have a boring makeup routine, mostly neutrals! Rose quartz and peachy echo are the colours I’ll try to add into my spring makeup menu. I am not sure about blue, I am not that confident to wear it 🙂

    I’m waiting to bring out all my crazy colour eye liners for Spring time! I have tons of them (can’t stop buying) but rarely use any. I hope to get out of my comfort zone this year so fingers crossed.

    I had no idea about Snorkel Blue, but love the idea of using a blue shade like that to line the ideas for simple pop of colour. It really suits you x

    This liner looks so stunning on you Carol! It’s a shame that it wasn’t that great to re-apply, but you did a perfect job at making it look easy. I love how you’ve slightly smoked out the ends too, it looks more effortless. I tend to wear peachy tones in the Spring time. But I really want to change things up and wear some more brighter shades like you.:D

    I rarely wear blue, but I usually pair it with peach or nude colors to pull it off when I do. Your combo makes me long for summer vacations on the beach!

    The weather has been really tricky here too . I also got some KIKO lip pencils and they are really nice, the Rose Quartz colour for the year is very nice and i love your eye liner. . Hope you have a great weekend!

    I’m pretty sure you suit every single makeup colour! You look just gorgeous 🙂

    Love the blue pencil, I have been tempted to play with colour again – I used to be a fan of greens and blues however stopped for quite a while and opted for my warmer browns, reds, golds, pinks.

    Great picks!

    Haha, I have that same double lip crayon from Kiko! I like it but I don’t use it often at all… I just have way too many things. The blue is so pretty on your brown eyes!
