How can you incorporate Radiant Orchid in your make-up?
Here is how I wear it — keeping it subtle, natural, and soft with Elizabeth Adren‘s Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in, “Golden Orchid“.

I applied “Golden Orchid” on my entire lid. To add more definition to my eye, I took a darker purple shade and applied it in my crease and blended it out for a softer look.
“Golden Orchid” is a beautiful shade of purple and very close to the actual “Radiant Orchid” shade. What I like about the eye shadow is that it has gold flecks in it which makes it more wearable for an everyday look. The eye shadow doesn’t appear too bright on the skin, so this is perfect for those who want a colourful, yet subtle & soft look.
