Radiant Orchid Makeup: It’s Not Too Late To Try Pantone’s 2014 Pick

By Courtney Leiva

When it comes to Pantone color picks, this year we couldn’t be more obsessed with orchid. Last year we rode the emerald wave with gorgeous shadows and off-kilter lippies, so you can bet we’re more than excited to introduce vampy purple tones to our beauty looks as of late.

Orchid is one of those colors that can help you achieve that sultry and smouldering fall look, so to incorporate the sexy hue inside your beauty bag, check out our top five orchid obsessions of the moment.

Get fancy with the Lorac Elegant Orchid Collection Set ($29) which boasts five full-sized essentials (we’re talking lipstick and eyeshadows!)  for that edgy fall finish.

Shadow up with a multi toned eye palette featuring alluring orchid hues. We love the Clarins Vibrant Light Eye Quartet Mineral Palette ($42) as it balances basics with jewel tones for that natural-earthy look.

Smoulder with a decadent liner in a seductive orchid hue. The Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide On Eye Pencil in Plushie ($20) is our current weapon-of-choice as it lines eyes with just the right amount of purple.

Get glossy with the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Violine Out Of Control ($35) which gives lips that irresistable pop of orchid. Plus it’s versatile enough for the boardroom and the bedroom.

Get funky with the deeper orchid tone found inside the Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Lavender ($24). And with a color this vibrant, you bet it would make a killer Instagram selfie!
