10 celebrities prove that you, too, can make purple work to your advantage.
If you haven't heard (or read) the news yet, Pantone has officially announcedUltra Violet as its Colour of the Year 2018. Rather than a pastel lilac or sprightly lavender, the shade has more depth than that—described as "dramatically provocative and thoughtful, Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future".
While we aren't sure about it communicating visionary thinking, we do agree that this striking shade packs a punch—from being associated with royalty to its symbolic expression (experimentation and non-conformity). Beauty wise, this colour screams edgy especially when it's in the form of a lip colour. But if you're looking for something more permanent and statement-making, dare we suggest colouring your hair in this vibrant shade? In case your gut feeling is saying that ultraviolet isn't for you, explore other shades within the same colour wheel for an exciting new look.
