Makeup Artist Margina Dennis shares her picks for a Radiant Orchid look:
Radiant orchid is a great color for the season because it is a universally flattering color like coral. What makes it work for everyone is the hint of red that is in it. The key to keeping this color looking fresh is to use it as an accent color or soft muted. If the lips are the focal point I like to use it as gloss, lip stain, or hydrating lip color.
OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Lip Tar – Matte in Hoochie is a soft matte look.
Pur Minerals Chateau De Vine Lipstick – Show Off is a great option for deeper skin tones.
Then keep the rest of the face simple. A nude eye or just a bit of black or grey liner as a simple wing eye or lots of mascara. For a muted look use Benefit Lolli Tint- a cheek and lip stain that is a universally flattering sheer wash of color. Pairing with soft pink in a sheer wash can be an instant fresh look.
Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colors in Soft Iris and Violet Orchid, work for most skin tones. Again, keep the rest of the face muted. If you want to go a bit bolder with the trend and wear a radiant orchid inspired eyeliner, like STILA Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Royal, this can look great as a winged or dramatic cat eye, just keep the rest of the face simple and let the liner be the focus.
For eye shadow you can use MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Style Eye-Con No.7- Plush Shadow as a great palette for a radiant orchid smoky eye. Keep cheek and lips in a pinked nude tone to keep the focus on the eyes.
