For Beauty

A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it look healthier and more energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair and eye colors and skin tones. For a seductive combination, pair it with red or its sister: shades of lavender, purple and pink, which provides an assortment of lipstick and blush options.
