Ahhh, magenta! It had to be one of my favorite, if not the favorite, Crayola crayon colors growing up.
Pantone, the fashion industry's go to color matching system, has chosen Viva Magenta 18-1750 as the color of the year for 2023.
What color is Magenta?
Magenta is a pinkish purplish red. There can be many variations of magenta. Some can be more purple. Some can be more red. Never-the-less, all shades of magenta are mixes of red and blue. Magenta is a similar color to fuchsia. Fuchsia is more purple than magenta. Magenta is redder than fuchsia just to give you a clearer visual.
The Viva Magenta color may not look quite the same color as the Crayola magenta. I think it is a bit redder than the crayon. Pantone refers to Viva Magenta as a nuanced crimson red tone.
It is an empowering, fun, joyful color. Just think of red lipstick and how good you feel wearing it. Bold and confident. We need a strong positive color for 2023 after dealing with the pandemic and all its fallout. Viva Magenta looks like the perfect color to lift our moods!
What is the Pantone Color Matching System?
Not sure what the Pantone Color Matching System is? It is a standardized system for identifying and matching colors that is used worldwide. For example, clothing manufacturers in the US and overseas can all refer to the system and use the exact same color, identified by number, in textile manufacturing. That ensures consistency in clothing manufacturing industry. Pretty good, right?
Now that you know more about this bold and beautiful color of the year, let me show you some pretty shades of magenta nail polish, lipstick, and fashion items that are similar to the Pantone Viva Magenta to easily add a pop of this fun, trendy color to you life.
