 Radiant Orchid has been labeled as 2014's color of the year by Pantone Color Institute. It has had it's appearance on the fashion runway, in makeup, interior design, and even in food. Last years color of Emerald has been blown away by this beautiful mixture of purples and pinks.

Now Isn't that a pretty set of macaroons? Orchid comes in all shapes and forms this year, including what you eat! I'll hop on board for any treat that looks this scrumptious and perfect. A great stylish way to spice up any party!

Violetta by MAC, which is similar to a current favorite, Heroin by MAC, is a great purple lip color. I can't think of any complexion that this color can't go with. Purple's are great for the Spring and Summer season. Your favorite brand is guaranteed to have something similar, seeing as it is the color of the year! Have any radiant orchid makeup suggestions? Let us know in the comments!

Maybelline Color Show in Fuschia Fever is an awesome way to bring out the color of the year. It is bright, bold, and perfect if you want to add a pop of color to a neutral or contrasting outfit. When would you wear this color out?
