Your lifestyle, your quirk
Bright pink lipstick was in for spring and orange is the color of the summer, but neither works on every skin tone. However, the combination of the two, coral, is universally flattering. Coral exploded in popularity last year when “Honeysuckle” was proclaimed Pantone’s Color of the Year. This summer, coral is showing up everywhere, and is commonly paired with leopard print, aqua, and fresh white tones. Instead of just wearing it in your clothing, you can use this summery shade to update your makeup for the warm weather.
Coral lip stains are a modern update on the classic red lip. They can be found in varying shades, from something close to a demure pink to more of the bold orange type. While bold, bright orangey corals are stylish at the moment, a shade with more blue undertones will make teeth look whiter against your stained lips. Lip stains provide a more subtle, natural look to lips, but if you want to stand out, coral lipsticks will pack a bigger, more obvious punch.
Coral blush brings out a sweet, sunny glow that works well with a faux tan or no tan. Choosing a blush shade can be daunting; it’s hard to find one that will make you look like you were just pinched and not like you just left clown college. Coral is the perfect combination of peach and pink that takes all of the guesswork out of picking the right shade for your complexion. Cheek stains are also a great, long-lasting option.
Even nails are joining in on the trend. Your digits will look great with a tan, without a tan, and with many different outfits. Best of all, coral nail polish gives you many options for following other nail trends. If you want to try out the color blocking French manicure, coral pairs well with bold purple, candy-apple red, royal blue, or aqua. Since coral is similar to both pink and peach, it’s easy to find shades to combine with your favorite coral polish to create the ombre look.
The best part about coral is that it is a color that works on everyone – why did it take it so long to come back into style? With all the skin tone guesswork gone, you can spend less time testing colors and more time looking fabulous.
