Yearning for continued connectivity with the world, colors have the power to ground us and bridge gaps at the same time. This season a resounding theme is to be mindful of self-care; both emotional and physical, and to embrace differences in society. Colors have been known to influence our mood and serve as conduits of relatability. The consensus for Spring-Summer 2023 is do what makes you feel happy, secure and included, and the color stories that have emerged, reinforce that notion.
This tranquil and feminine color palette whisks you away on a dreamy escape from the real world. Translucent or subtly tinted finishes that exude glistening radiance capture the eyes. Pigment fluidity is exhibited in soft interference color travel, enhanced in liquid and cream mediums. Formulations skew towards dual or multipurpose, eliminating defined boundaries and yielding “blurred lines.”
