Last year, I was absolutely smitten with Pantone’s choice of emerald as the color of the year. Not only is it my birthstone, but it’s one of my favorite colors and I own a few pieces I just love in that color, including this dress, this dress and this one.
This year’s color, Radiant Orchid, is every bit as beautiful and I already have several pieces in my closet that feature this color. I’ve also seen this color pop up in a lot of J.Crew’s pieces this season, even for baby!
H-E-B recently sent me some beauty picks celebrating Radiant Orchid as the color of the year. As you know, when I’m not using my typical palette of neutrals (browns, grays and black), I reach for purple liners and shadows to make my eyes pop.
| NYXC Love in Rio |
Three perfect purple shades from a soft lilac to a deep midnight purple can create a pretty smokey eye
| Rimmel Water Proof Exaggerate Eye Definer in Purple Shock |
This liner is a little edgy for an everyday look, but boy does it have staying power and incrdible pigmentation.
| L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Berry Persistent |
I already own this gloss in the light pink color and LOVE it. It lasts such a long time and I love the gel-like texture when you apply it. This color looks very purple in the tube but is a bold berry shade when applied to the lips.
| NYX roll on shimmer in Pink |
This is the coolest product I've tested out in awhile. I was skeptical of the roll-on, but it truly works and is SO pigmented (as you can see below)
Orchid Nail Lacquer in What’s Sa-Rong?
I don't wear metallic polish very often, but this shade is perfect for an accent nail. I would pair it with Essie's "splash of grenadine"
top to bottom- eyeshadow, roll on shimmer, eyeliner, lip gloss
I just love purple---all shades! One of my favorite pairs of shorts is a beautiful, bright orchid color. I can't wait to wear them again this summer!
