Mix & Match

Magenta is the newest addition to our color collection, and it’s almost-iridescent pinkish-purple hue has quickly become a crowd favorite. While creating our most recent shades, we learned that Magenta is one of the most unique colors in existence due to the fact that you can’t actually see it on the color spectrum, you just perceive it. Because of these unusual features, Magenta also mixes surprisingly well with basically all of the existing oVertone shades, so feel free to get creative with custom blends. 

Now that we’ve concluded the scientific portion of this post, let’s get down to why you’re really here: a how-to for mixing our Magenta shades. We combined Pastel Magenta with some of our favorite products to create two new shades for you to try — just make sure you strand test first!
