Radiant Orchid: This Versatile Shade Works on Everyone!
Spring has sprung! Soon the flowers will bud with renewed beauty and radiance after a long winter, and so shall you!
This month’s pantone color is Radiant Orchid, a beautiful blush lavender shade. The blend of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones make this color flattering on most skin tones and it’s such a versatile color that can be worn in so many different ways.
If you’re the type of gal that likes a more simple and toned down look, opt for a tinted moisturizer, a few coats of mascara and add an orchid like color into your routine with just a beautiful blush like NARS Sex Fantasy Blush and Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Tulip. It’s the perfect duo to get that fresh springtime look!
For a more dramatic appeal do up your eyes with the new MAC Purple Times 9 palette. The palette has THE perfect radiant colors for spring. The shades range from light pinkish champagne to shimmery plums. The textures are rich mattes to soft satins. Here on Dawn I kept her skin flawless and bright, while accentuating her eyes with a blend of pinks and purples. I made her lips super moisturized and kept them close to her natural color to keep the focus on the eyes.
Check out the modern and surprisingly versatile shade for yourself! I think you’ll love how different shades of orchid can really liven up your look. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones. Have fun with it!
