This years Pantone color is...drumroll....PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid! Might I add that this enchantingly soft combination of purple, fuschia, and rose pink undertones incites a sweet confidence fit for a Secret Garden queen. Seemingly polar to last year's PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald and its "symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

This lovely shade that stems from a melange of colors is one that not only evokes a soothing peace but encourages a blossoming of creativity and originality. In addition, this mesmerizing purple sprouts great joy, love and health with its endearing charm. It's no wonder why it has had such a pivotal role in the fashion world today.

Radiant Orchid's blush undertones radiate beautifully on the skin in such an effervescent manner. It produces a healthy glow that doesn't play favor to either side of the gender field. The attention-grabbing color has already planted its dazzling brilliance throughout the Spring 2014 fashion shows (check out my latest post on the Spring trends!).

As for beauty, this overachieving, versatile shade emanates an energetic and healthy look. Remember watching those super addictive Michelle Phan beauty tutorials? Gently applying doses of lavendar underneath tired, dark spots under your eyes after an adventurous Saturday night can work wonders. After all, its sister shade is lavendar. It also comes from a family tree of purples and pinks which provides the perfect basis for a collection of lipstick and blush choices. Its cool and warm undertones also allow a dynamic combination that can flatter countless hair, eye, and skin tones. You could say its an impartial philanthropist that loves all (a.k.a Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Oprah...)

I don't know about you, but I'm completely sold on this shade and its attached beauty and positivity for the year to come. Aren't you? :)
