There are a million ways to wear orchid, Pantone's color of the year. But for those who want to be on trend AND eco-conscious, I've compiled my favorite ways to wear the color of 2014. Here are 7 eco-friendly ways to wear orchid!
1. Pure Fusion Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow in Plum Passion
Eyeshadow is one of the prettiest ways to wear orchid, and this is the perfect eyeshadow to give you that bright pop of purple! Blendable and buildable from a subtle wash to all-out vibrance, this non-toxic shadow can also be applied wet as a dramatic eyeliner.
2. Synergy Organic Clothing Molly Dress in Purple Orchid
With its simple cut, drawstring waist and pretty orchid hue, this 95% organic cotton dress can be dressed up with heels and a smokey eye, or down with flip-flops and loose wavy hair. Perfect for the beach! Made with low impact dyes, this dress is comfy, stylish and so very pretty.
3. Just Pure Minerals Vegan Blush in Plum
Of all the ways to wear orchid, on your cheeks may sound like a strange one, but this shade gives you just enough of the orchid flush to impart a soft, pretty plummy violet. Blend it out for a gentle glow, or apply with a heavier hand if you're daring! Either way, this is one beautiful blush.
4. Red Apple Lipstick Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in Violet Femme
If pressed eyeshadow is more your thing, Red Apple Lipstick has you covered. This is the perfect purple to rock a radiant orchid eye with! Playful and pretty, with some fun shimmer, you can apply this medium purple all over your eye for a monochromatic look, or apply it to upper or lower lash-lines for a pop of color. Gluten-free and toxin-free, this shadow has great pigment! (And you're crazy if you don't pick up one or two of the fabulous lipsticks while you're there!)
5. Wellicious 3/4 Yoga Pant in Pink Orchid
Who says working out can't be stylish? These soft, wearable yoga pants are great for hitting the gym or just chilling around the house in. And the pink orchid shade is so gorgeously on trend! Wellicious takes great care to use organic raw materials and reduce their carbon footprint.
6. Etherealle Vegan Mineral Lipstick in Orchid
Orchid on your lips? Definitely dramatic, but it can also be quite breathtaking. So if you're bold enough to try an orchid lip, this radiant non-toxic purple lipstick will be right up your alley. Blot it down for a hint of purple or layer it up for a more dramatic orchid statement! Give it a try at home first and see if you can work up the nerve to step out in purple lips! I dare you! I bet you'll stop traffic.
7. Scotch Naturals Nail Polish in so Little Time
This shimmery lilac polish will treat your tips to the color of the year, without the nasties that lurk in most mainstream polishes. Scotch Naturals polish is 5-free, and may just be the only polish I've ever tried that actually doesn't smell! Radiant, indeed.
