I remember when the Pantone Color of the Year was announced I was quite surprised as I had expected it to be Cobalt Blue. The year before I could have sworn Michael Kors called it as he had orange everywhere in his collection and sure enough- Tangerine Tango was the color of the year.

Radiant Orchid I have found suits every skin tone and can add that pop of color you need in order to appear more alive and awake! I had recently attended a Sephora + Pantone event in which all products from the collection were used on every woman whom walked through the greenhouse doors behind the Eventi hotel in NYC and I saw myself go from drab to fab within minutes of application! Sephora teams up with Pantone Universe each year and creates a collection based on the announced color of the year. Orchids were everywhere you looked and the colors were bright and cheery. You can merely swipe the color onto the apples of your cheeks, or choose to wear a vibrant colored eyeliner that exaggerates your eye color or rock an orchid colored lippy or lip gloss. No matter how you fit it into your daily makeup routine, it will certainly add some color to your day. Literally!
