to see it). Aside from Radiant Orchid, which you will see a lot of in the coming days, some of the hottest makeup colors that will sizzle in 2014 are electric orange, gold, red, berry, navy, cobalt, lilac and chocolate brown.

According to Allure Magazine, The Beauty Expert, the following shades are 5 of the hottest makeup colors for 2014.

1.

ELECTRIC ORANGE LIPS -

This bold shade was seen at several runway shows for brands such Rag & Bone, DKNY, Prabal Gurung and Dsquared. Rag & Bone makeup artist Gucci Westman used neon orange lipstick, like (http://www.allure.com/makeup-looks/2014/new-makeup-color-trends-for-2014#slide=1) Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Electric Orange

,

on the models' lips.

"We needed a pop of color, but orange is cooler and more gritty than red," Westman (http://www.allure.com/makeup-looks/2014/new-makeup-color-trends-for-2014#slide=1) said in the Allure Magazine report.

2. RED-VELVET LIPS -

Red is a classic shade that never goes out of style. It is sophisticated and alluring especially if worn without gloss or shimmer. For such a bold in-your-face shade, make sure to use a lip brush to precisely apply it on the lips. Then, apply some concealer around the lip area to clean up any stray lines. Try (http://www.allure.com/beauty-products/makeup/2010/mac-lipstick-ruby-woo) M.A.C. Lipstick in Ruby Woo or

topped with a matte loose red pigment.

3. GOLD SHADOW AND HIGHLIGHTER -

This shade is guaranteed to brighten any eye color, whether it's blue, green, hazel or dark brown. Try

If you can't eat too much chocolate, why not wear it on your fingers? Not the actual chocolate, but a chocolate-y shade like (http://www.essie.com/Colors/Neutrals/little-brown-dress.aspx) Essie Little Brown Dress nail polish. It's guaranteed to perk you up in no time.

5. BERRY CHEEKS -

Blush in the color of a juicy berry provides a healthy flush that makes one look naturally beautiful. Try (http://www.allure.com/beauty-products/makeup/blush/2012/maybelline-dream-bouncy-blush-plum-wine) Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Plum Wine .

"(It) gives the face freshness," (http://www.allure.com/makeup-looks/2014/new-makeup-color-trends-for-2014#slide=8) said makeup artist Charlotte Willer in the Allure Magazine report. She used it on the models at the DKNY Spring 2014 Runway Show.
