Beauty’s most wanted color this summer is that beautiful palette blend of pink and orange. Coral’s flirty and whimsical hue perfectly highlights sun-kissed skin in warm weather. Fashionistas are making a bold statements with the hot color wearing it on their cheeks, nails, and lips of course. Whichever feature you chose to accentuate with Coral this summer, it will surely make the one you love blush when you show off your radiant skin.
Lips have become the boldest feature to highlight on the face this season. It is the easiest feature to change and experiment with when trying out a new color. I always recommend pairing a bold lip with a natural illuminating face to keep your makeup look modern and fun especially for daytime or at work. To enhance your look from daytime to nighttime bump up your eye shadow with a vibrant color like cobalt blue, add flirty lashes, and a flush your cheeks with a beautiful bronzer like the look above.

Many women have expressed their love hate relationship with blush, especially women with darker skin tones. Blush is not essential to complete a makeup look but, it can make a world of difference by brightening the skin and sculpting the face. There are many textures of blush to chose from to perfect your summer look. To achieve more natural looks use cream or liquid blush after applying a sheer foundation. Cream and liquid blushes are great for hot days in the sun that give you that barely there makeup look. Powder blushes and bronzers are undoubtedly more pigmented, but with so many shades of coral to chose from there is no need to shy away from the perfect powder blush. Remember if you become over zealous and a little too heavy handed re-apply your liquid foundation or powder to tone down the color.
