Prepare to spy this sweet and punchy hue on the runway, accented in your favourite mags, and even in your beauty routine In the past, I’ve not been the biggest coral supporter but for beauty, I admit it’s a gorgeous option because it’s pretty universal for all skin tones and it instantly brightens up any look. In case you’re not quite sure how to incorporate coral into your beauty routine, keep reading for 5 ways to get your coral on!
When it’s cold and gloomy out, it’s important to amp up our makeup, right ladies? Warm up your look with a coral statement eyeshadow. There are so many brands and palettes out there but my fave is the Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette. As much as I love a single eyeshadow, with palettes, your options are pretty much endless with all the colour and shading combinations. Time to get creative and blend, blend, blend!
I know every beauty girl has her favoutitee blush and colour that works for her but instead of a rosy cheek, why not give a cute coral shade a chance? Make sure you pick a formula with buildable coverage because coral can definitely overpower your look. After all, it’s always easier to add more than it is to take away! My top pick is NARS Blush in Torrid
Need a little sunshine in your life? Enter a bright coral lip! I know it’s a bold choice but just hear me out – all you have to do is pare down your makeup just a little bit (think no liner, just mascara) and i swear you won’t look crazy, just crazy gorgeous! My top pick is the Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon in Blood Orange
If you’re always down to try new beauty trends, then this one’s for you. Take a cque from the 80s and rock some bright mascara because why the heck not? Life is short and I’m always down to stand out! My top pick is the NYX Cosmetics Colour Mascara in Coral Reef
Want to test run the Coral trend without going overboard? A thin swipe of eyeliner is the perfect way to dip your toes and see if the shade works for you. I recommend going for a thicker line because, well, what’s the point if no one can see it? I even double dare you to do a cheeky flick for a gorgeous cat eye look! My top pick is Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Orange Crush
