Ultraviolet Beauty

The year of 2018 has been casted with harnessing the powers of the mythical, creative and illusive. It's no wonder that the Pantone colour of this year is ultraviolet: a rich purple with sapphire tones that's sure to invoke anyone's passion and artistry. This gorgeous shade has found itself the center of attention in magazines, fashion, and even food! It was only right that we incorporated this decadent hue in our beauty routines too. Here are some of Althea's favorite ultraviolet picks for this year!

Missha Night Repair Borabit Ampoule
Give your skin some ethereal lovin' with Missha's Night Repair Borabit Ampoule, an all-nourishing concentrate that hydrates, smoothens, plumps and gives an overall radiance to your complexion. Infused with purple hued Lactobacillus extract, this works on your skin as you catch your beauty sleep, giving it a change to repair and refresh the skin cells at the skin's peak renewal period. It also contains vegetable collagen and 7 types of vitamins for a youthful glow.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask
Clay masks are like the vacumm cleaners of your skincare routine. They suck out dirt, leftover makeup and other gunk from your pores to keep them clean and as small as possible for even skin. The purple one from Innisfree is made with Jeju volcanic extract that's reknown for its purifying propelrties, and it also contains panthenol to soothe and hydrate the skin. You'll definitely want to rock this in your beauty routine!

Abbamart Shy Smile Blusher
Here's a really easy way to infuse this cool shade into your everyday routine! Lavender Garden is a unique, slightly blue-based light purple that looks really quite natural on your cheeks. This blush is all matte, so you don't have to worry about it looking too unnatural. Its superfine pigments also mean that this blends easily onto the cheeks (no patchiness here!). Just swirl a cheek brush into it and blend onto the apples of the cheeks.

Glamfox Fleurissant Lip Glow
Indulge your creative energy with this dainty, super pretty lipstick. With little gold flecks and a flower embeded right in the center, this lipstick changes depending on your body's temperature, giving your lips a natural pink glow. Our favorite shade Witch Flower is made with an array of flower extracts including that of chamomile, hibiscus, calendulla, damask rose, daisy, magnolia, lily, lilium and lavender to hydrate and remove any dryness. Kiss those chapped lips goodbye!
Masil Color Treatment Dual Tint
Searching for locks to perfectly embody the colour of the year? Look no further than this Ultra Violet hue from Masil! Not your typical hair dye, this hair colour treatment is actually good for your hair thanks to protein and coconut extracts that repair damaged cuticles for soft, smooth locks. The colour gently tints the outer most layer of the hair, giving it a vibrant look without damaging any of the core for up to 2 weeks. Now you can really slay the trend game like our Thai Pixie!
