Introducing the Pantone of the year: Radiant Orchid January 16 2014

Each year the beauty and fashion world wait feverishly for the the announcement of the pantone color of the new year. Once announced, designers and artists from the industries begin creating new styles and looks that will be built based on the new pantone. The 2014 pantone of the year is Radiant Orchid and we are here to tell you how to use this pantone to create your look before you hit the town. 

 

Eyes - Create a flirty look by dressing up your eyes with a orchid based shadow that will sure to standout. We think Rachel McAdams nailed the look! Purple based shadows work best with green eyes but also can make hazel and brown eyes standout. Finish the look off with your favorite Play Lashes! 

 

 

Lips - Ready to make a statement? Try a lavish orchid on your lips like MAC's Show Orchid. Making a bold statement, your lips will be the base of your look. The rest of your makeup should be neutral to allow for your smackers to really shine! 

 

 

Fashion - Ready to stand out from the crowd? Start the trend before they hit the runway by choosing a fun radiant orchid piece to add to your closet. It can be dressed down for your morning work meeting or dress it up with bold jewelry and sparkle for a night on the town. We love this fun jacket Lea Michelle is wearing! 

 

 

Nails - Maybe you aren't ready to dive head first into the newest pantone. Sport a new mani sure to turn heads with a splash of radiant orchid. Enough to make any outfit pop. Butter London's Molly Coddled and Nars' Ratin Jot - Orchid Pink are our favorites! 

 

 

How will you be incorporating radiant orchid into your look?
