Categories : Makeup, Scoop

Thank you, Pantone, for picking a gorgeous 2019 Colour of the Year. Living Coral is a vibrant orangey-pink that’s universally flattering and easy to wear. Try it now!  

Wear Living Coral on your eyelids

Give your brown shadows a break. Even if coral is a vibrant shade, if you pick a sheer formula it can work as an everyday neutral eyeshadow too. Try Laneige Two Tone Shadow Bar in Humming Coral. Just use your fingers to blend this fresh shade all over your lids. It gives a barely-there shimmer that’s great for work or weekend errands.

Or, you can create a whole series of  looks with the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eye Shadow Palette. You can just sweep it all over the lid and add gold highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes, or smoke it out with a brown or purple shadow along your lashline or crease.

Wear Living Coral on your lips

Want a matte coral lipstick? Get Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Sexy Sienna. Unlike many mattes, this feels really soft and comfortable on the lips. The warm undertones flatters even darker skin. Definitely a shade that you’ll be using every day!

Want a little more shine? Get L’Oréal Paris’ Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in 202 Coral Encore. Swipe this on your lips for an instantly sexy pout.

Coral Lipstick Tip!

Light lipstick colours like coral can highlight rough, dry lips. Do a little lip exfoliation right before applying. Just swipe petroleum jelly on your lips and gently rub off dry skin with a washcloth or cotton bud.

Wear Living Coral on your Cheeks

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush in Snapdragon makes your cheeks look lit from within. It’s pigmented, so use a fluffy brush and blend, blend and blend! It works on both light and medium skin tones.  “I’m tanned, so many coral blushes look too light or frosty on me,” says one beauty review. “This looks very natural and makes me look like I have a healthy glow.”

If you prefer a cream or liquid blush, get Nars in Torrid. It’s very pigmented and will last all day, even if in very hot and humid weather. “Get home from a day’s work at 7 pm and blush still on and looks fresh as it did 14 hours ago! Never looks caked on, makes cheeks look smooth, and never a ‘too much blush’ look!” says one Nars reviewer.
