Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of the Year. It's time to update your makeup bag with the season's hottest color!
Stylists everywhere wait in anticipation for the annual announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year.  Last year, it was Emerald. 2014 is the year of Radiant Orchid, says Pantone. And I am thrilled.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®, describes this stunning hue as “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones”  and says that the shade “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Good news for beauty enthusiasts: Radiant Orchid looks good on all complexions. There are plenty of makeup options to add 2014’s hottest color to your makeup collection.  Adding a pop of color to your eyes, cheeks, or lips is all you need to embrace spring’s hottest color trend without it looking overdone. Radiant Orchid will give your look a sense of modern meets feminine.
