Radiant Orchid: Pantone's Colour for 2014

If you follow me on Instagram (@lilitsblog) then you probably saw how excited I was about Pantone announcing the colour of 2014 as Radiant Orchid. Pantone describes Radiant Orchid as having pink, purple and fuchsia undertones. Those are gorgeous shades so expect to see more shades like that creeping into the beauty and fashion world next year.

If you've ever browsed my archives then chances are you've noticed I love pinks, purples and fuchsias! In fact I did a "face of the day" post using purple tones just a few days ago. Over the next few days I'll go through my makeup stash and do a round up post of all things "Radiant Orchid", but in the meantime here are some radiant orchid things for inspiration.

Do you like this colour that Pantone has chosen for 2014?


  1. I really enjoyed 2012's tangerine lip, I was hoping to go back to lips after emerald green (eyeshadow only). I'm a bit scared of purple lipstick - it never looks good on me! It'll have to be a purple eyeshadow year for me I think.

    1. Purple lipsticks are great! You should give them a try, maybe try a sheer formula as they're not as scary. And if all else fails you can still wear purple on your nails!
