Cosmetic Color Trends 2021/22

As technology and innovation continue to accelerate, we tend to lose our balance as human beings. Intuitively, we look to our roots, seeking connections to our origin. Inspired by the Pantone Color Institute™, for the 2021-2022 seasons we explore two contrasting stories, celebrating differing perspective and energies as we unleash our raw instincts.

Our Fall/Winter 2021/22 trend, Source, invites us to (re)discover the idea that each element in nature has a soul. The Source color trend illustrates a naturally inspired color range that goes outside of traditional neutrals.

The Source color palette channels the naturally inspired shades of an enchanted forest, from sparkling minerals to rich herbs and vibrant roots. The soft, earthy tones of the Fall 2021 palette intensify as the season shifts to Winter 2021/22 bringing in the holiday season.

The Source effect pigment palette echoes the essence of Source. Calm, earth tones reach new dimensions and richness, celebrating the beauty of mother nature. Featured are shifting colors, sparkles, and a hit on vibrant violet hues

Concepts and applications

Earth inspired textures, rich neutral shades and dazzling effects translate into exciting color cosmetic formulations. Explore the applications inspired by an enchantment of mother nature.

The Beast color palette is a range of highly contrasted colors, grounded in warm earth tones, neon-like shades and bold colors invite playfulness. In Spring 2022, a faux black and white lay a neutral base for bold pops of Fuchsia, Orange, and Turquoise. As we shift into Summer 2022, the palette warms and the contrast smooths.

The Beast effect pigment palette creates bold colors and array of effects, mimicking the pops of color, grounded by a golden bronze reminding of the Stone Age inspiration.

Concepts and applications

Vintage cartoons, clunky shapes, bold color palettes and unique effects, translate to inspiring color cosmetic formulations. Explore the applications that entice our primal instincts.
