How To Rock Pantone's 2014 Colour of the Year Radiant Orchid

Heyyyyy, it's time to get out your colour wheels, if you haven't done so already.

For those of you who may be wondering why, it's because we have left Emerald Green behind us in 2013, and now according to PantoneRadiant Orchid awaits us in 2014.

To make the most of this trend we need to know how to coordinate our make-up with our outfits.  With regards to beauty, Pantone's Press Release describes Radiant Orchid as 'a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple' that 'enlivens the skin...making the wearer feel more healthy and energetic'.  It is 'seductive when combined with red' and 'pairs well with...lavender, purple and pink'.

Inspirationail's article What To Wear With Purple also gives some excellent tips.

Here's a bonus tip: No Radiant Orchid make-up? No Problem!   You  may be able to create the colour using the make-up products that you already have.

So let's enjoy Radiant Orchid as it reigns supreme for 2014!
