We’re totally smitten with this radiant shade and are so excited to introduce Orchid Pearluster Eyeshadow to our collection for a limited time. This semi-matte pearluster shadow is a soft shimmering fuchsia—the perfect hue for different makeup looks and complementary to many hair, eye and skin tones. We also added some of our favorite Radiant Orchid picks that we have on our growing wishlist.
Alima has a garden-full of floral-named shades, and every one of them is beautiful and appropriate for spring. For cheeks, choose Rosa Luminous Shimmer Blush. If you prefer a matte look, Satin Matte Blushes come in Apple Blossom, Carnation, Geranium, Mimosa and the roses…Antique Rose, Honey Rose and Desert Rose.
To create a spring bouquet, apply Daphne as a base, with Hellebore on the lid. Contour with Lilac, and use it damp to line. For fair skins, sweep Tulip blush over the entire cheek area, and apply a touch of Rosa on the apples of the cheeks. For deeper skins, apply Carnation on the entire cheek area and add a touch of Antique Rose or Geranium for brightness.
