10 Beauty Keys to Unlock Pantone’s Radiant Orchid Garden


Though New Years Eve is still weeks away, 2014 is already is full bloom as Pantone named Radiant Orchid as the Color of the Year. Lady Gaga led the charge for the sartorially savvy by wearing the color in her first ad for Versace, but the beauty game plays by a different set of rules. The hue itself translates into many tones fit for the eyes, lips, face, and in some instances, hair (if you’re still living for the punk revival). In honor of the imaginative new hue, we’ve curated a list of makeup must-haves to start the year off right!
