Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2022 is here and it’s gorgeous! The color is called Very Peri and it’s a beautiful periwinkle blue/purple. We love this new color and know it will look amazing on redheads.

Here’s how we think redheads should rock Very Peri in the new year:



Periwinkle isn’t a common color in makeup, but we are hoping that with it being the Color of the Year, we will start to see more of it. One way we hope Very Peri makes its debut is eyeliner. Bold eyeliner has been such a big trend and we are loving it. Blue eyeliner and mascara look stunning on redheads and we think this new color would look just as amazing.

In the meantime, try some periwinkle eyeshadow looks to make your red hair and fair skin really pop. Periwinkle is a gorgeous mix of blue and purple meaning it will look stunning with all eye colors. 

And don’t forget about purple mascara! H2BAR rated it one of the top trends for redhead makeup in 2022.

We are sure to see a lot more periwinkle clothing coming out around springtime and we are here for it. Blue and purple are both great colors for redheads, so this combo is sure to be extremely flattering! Periwinkle looks great when paired with complementary colors like mustard yellow, gold, and lemon. It also looks gorgeous with more muted colors like sage green, neutrals, and pale pink for a pastel vibe. 


Rock it like a Redhead!
