Radiant Orchid Makeup Tutorial Video

I've been dying to make a makeup tutorial inspired by the Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Snowed-in AGAIN, I finally had the opportunity to film, edit and share this tutorial in one day :)

If you looked in my personal makeup bag and collection, you would notice that I heavily favor purple hues. They flatter my blue/green eyes and also look amazing on all eye colors. Purples can enhance the warm golden tones in brown eyes and bring out a more vibrant green in light eyes. Since Radiant Orchid is a very pink-purple it translates beautifully on the face when used on eyes, cheeks and lips. 

The look I create in this tutorial is colorful but reserved so you can wear it for daytime or evening. I hope you give it a try and start having some fun with the color of the year! xo KL
