Pantone Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta Nail Polish | Lipstick | Fashions

Magenta Collage
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.

pantone color of the year 2023 Viva Magenta

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.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men.

Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp
