How to change text color of the default "Search" with the Venture theme

6 1 1

I've spent so long trying to figure this one out. I changed the header to white from the default black color on the Venture theme. It appears that the default "Search" text within the search box uses "$color-header-links" so won't show when the search box bg is white. I made it offwhite in the screenshot to show you what I mean. When I type it's black so that's fine but I want to be able to see the words "search" in that box before they type.

Does anyone know where I can edit the text color?
