I’ve always been in love with purple, lilac, fuchsia make up products. Violet, purple and pink undertones are great for green eyes, as well as deep pink brightens the smile and make lips look sexier. Inspired by Radiant Orchid, this year’s modern, expressive purple, I decided to create a post with the products for lips, eyes, nails and body in this flush, which I’m using in this season.
The first product you see in my selection, which I have already mentioned on this blog is Mac Cutie Eye Shadow x4 Palette composed by the following colors: Moshi Moshi!, Goody Goody Gum Drop, Boycrazy, Azuki Bean. I love them, because there’s a bit of shimmer, which is not too much for a daily look.
Passing to the nails, where orchid hues can fit to both hands and toes, I picked up Kiko nail polishes, so brilliant, beautiful and super cheap! Those in the picture are the colors: #330, #332, #284, #288.
As regards accessories, there’s so much choice if you want to complete your outfit with a few orchid’s bits. To try something special, you could style a watch. Mine is from Stroili oro, with a fuchsia silicon strap.
The bottle of fragrance on the right is YSL Manifesto a rich, seductive and feminine bouquet with notes of Jasmine, Vanilla, Tonka bean.
Coming to the lips, I selected two products: a pencil and a colored lip balm. Are you among those who don’t line the lips? Me, I usually prefer to line them, passing a bit of pencil also inside the border, before applying any sticks or glosses. I think this technique helps the color last a bit more. My orchid-inspired lip pencil is Lancome Contour Pro: a creamy, waterproof pencil, provided with a pencil for blending, which you can use also to apply lipstick.
Clinique Chubby Stick is one of my favourite colored lip balms ever: it smells nice, nourishes my lips and looks lovely.
Do you have any radiant orchid beauty products to recommend?
