According to colour experts Pantone, Radiant Orchid is the colour of 2014, and what better way to celebrate the impending entrance of spring than with this blooming purply trend? If you're wondering what exactly radiant orchid is, allow me to explain. According to Wiki, you've got quite a range of shades to pick from. They say that “Various tones of orchid may range from grayish purple to purplish-pink to strong reddish purple”.

I've made it easy for you to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your makeup routine using Eco-friendly, non-toxic brands from beautiful British Columbia. Whether you want to go all the way with a bold, shocking purple on your eyes or scale it down with a soft rosy plum on your cheeks, you'll find something you can work with in my top three choices.
