Coral Cheeks and Lips for Summer

*Published in Lounge Magazine, June 24, 2012

Bold lips are in season but if you aren’t sure if the trend of a bright fuchsia pink pout is your style then you can surely try a coral lip to hop into summer! A sunset inspired look with peaches, corals and shades of gold have been used all over the red carpet this season. With a pale coral lip, peach blush and matching shimmery gold shadow on the brow bone call for a glamorous look.

There is a variety of different hues of orange that you can pull off. If true orange isn’t your style then opt for a more apricot shade of blush that has more pink undertones than orange. An apricot shade will give a warming effect on the complexion for the perfect summer glow.

Bring some shine to your lips with a complementing gloss that has a gold tone for a warm tropical tint that will suit every complexion. Intensify your lip color with a full and glossy lip by dabbing a bright gold gloss on the center. This can pull the look together along with a coral lip liner that adds a hint of color without going overboard. Sweep a bit of shimmery gold eye shadow on the brow bone to complete the look.

For a quick natural coral makeup apply the same shade on your cheeks and eyes, lightly brush the color on the lids and blend it out. Apply a bright coral blush on the cheeks then dust the remainder of the product onto your temple and hairline. Pair the look with a soft coral lipstick. Finish off with a coco brown soft kohl kajal eyeliner, run the liner along the top and lower lash line to define your eyes. This can bring a stark contrast to the pale look. For a slight hint of color add a contrasting soft kohl kajal eye liner on the lower lash line such as green or purple for a burst of color!
