Coral | Spring-Summer Beauty Trend


Coral shades range from orange to a paler peach. Nevertheless – whether your complexion is light, medium or dark – coral is a universally flattering hue. Coral makeup and nail polish are  great alternatives to bright pinks and dramatic reds. Applied to the eyes, cheeks and lips, the flush of color instantly brightens up your face. Coral nails scream spring/summer and will leave your digits looking a little more interesting.

If you want a tinge of coral, apply a layer of gloss to the lips, or a light sweep of coral blush to your cheeks. Looking for a deeper, concentrated, shade of coral? Use a lipstick or apply coral eyeshadow to your lids. Remember, you don’t want to look like a clown – unintentionally. Buildable color is key!

The glow of coral is amazing.
