I’ve been wearing a bold orchid lip over the past few years for spring and I am still so obsessed with this shade as a makeup color. This brilliant orchid shade was the main inspiration for The May Dress.
I knew I needed the perfect orchid shade of lip color, and I have been dying to try Tom Ford’s Lip Lacquer from Nordstrom and they had the perfect orchid shade with to go with The May Dress. This lip lacquer has 3 different finishes in metal, matte, and patent. I tried out a few shades in the metal finish. They were really beautiful! I picked up 3 different shades from Nordstrom so I could test out which color I liked the best. I love that Nordstrom Beauty let me test out a few different shade options to make sure I found the exact color that went with the dress.
They weren’t shimmery, more of a sophisticated iridescent look to them. The colors of all the shades are so pigmented. They stay put on my lips all day. The orchid shade I love so much is called “Violet Fatal” and it stayed the entire day. From 6 am prepping for the shoot, until I went to bed that night. I added “Claudia” by NARS to the insides of my lips as well. It’s another one of my favorite shades.
I kept with the orchid shade on my lips and cheeks. I didn’t do eyeliner with this look. Honestly I wanted to just let these beautiful purply pink shades really pop. This look can easily transition to an everyday look by only wearing an orchid lip, or orchid on the eyes with a pretty nude lip. Nordstrom Beauty is one of my favorite go to’s for the most beautiful quality makeup.
