ZEN AND NOW
Trina Epilepsia Boutain, Managing Editor
2020 was anything but relaxed, so here’s to finding one’s center and peace of mind with a cool, calm shade of blue. This primary hue evokes serenity and structure—from clear skies to calm seas and the regimented order of a navy uniform. And just in case you forgot, Classic Blue was 2020’s Color of the Year.
In beauty, embrace blue eyeshadow’s disco past, as surely as you revel in its current iteration as the chicest pastel. Meanwhile, navy and cobalt serve as cooler alternatives to sooty black, perfect for smoky eyes, graphic liner and any virtual party. And after? Slip into a pair of something silky and delicate, turn up the Velvet Underground’s “Pale Blue Eyes” and make yourself a icy gin tonic to enjoy under a cashmere throw. Peace out.
