Get Glowing (Radiant Orchid) – Trend Thursday

For those that didn’t know by now (I don’t know how you haven’t, can I join you at that rock you’re living under?), Pantone’s Color of the year is Radiant Orchid. It’s a cool purple tinged with pink, and just what we need to break up this dreary winter. Read on to see the color and some examples in fashion!

It will be the epitome of freshness. In makeup, it will be seen especially in eye makeup looks with gold and bronze accents. Lips will also bear the color and it flatters all skin tones (with the right intensity and hue). A brighter more neon purple version will be hot for summer. While a deeper more-berry version will be appropriate for fall.

It’s clear where it comes in with makeup, but I’ve added a few clothing and accessory options in the mix. Here are a few of my favorites encompassing various price ranges and products in the hot hue:


Live fearlessly,

      Isn’t it! Whenever I wear it in make up, the purple is subtle and the pink shows up more. I guess it’s bc I have a really golden skintone. 🙂
