Crazy About Corals!

Coral is another one of my favourite summertime shades.  It's easier to wear then other bright summer colours, probably because it looks flattering on most skin tones.  And to me, nothing compliments a tan like wearing some coral!

If you're timid about injecting colour into your life, the easiest place to start is on your nails!  There are lots of coral shades out there, I like this one from Essie called California Coral.

I also love wearing coral makeup, and there are sooooo many products to choose from.  I would never suggest to wear all these coral shades at once!  But pick one, maybe 2 products, to create a beautiful summer makeup look.

These two products are from the MAC Surf Baby Collection.  A super easy way to add some coral into your makeup look is by using a coral blush and lipstick for a fun summer look.  If you were to go with coral lips and cheeks then I would keep your eye makeup to a minimum.  Maybe sweep a little golden coloured eyeshadow on your lids, lots of black mascara and you're good to go!

And for the more adventurous makeup lovers out there, try a coral coloured eye makeup look.  One of my favourite coral eyeshadows is Paradisco by MAC.  I find you really need a good base before you apply the shadow to really get a good colour payoff, but it's worth the extra step.  I use this colour on the lid, and then use a golden brown like MAC's Cork or Soba to blend into the crease.  A golden liquid liner with this eyeshadow would be fun, but you could also use a brown too.

 And if you're looking for some cool coral kicks, I'm really loving these shoes from JCrew.  I want them so bad!!!!!!!

Who's up for coral this summer?
