Who can wear coral?
Whether you're a blonde, a brunette or a redhead, anyone can wear coral. This bright colour suits all skin tones and all hair colours, but you do need to adapt your make-up to suit it.
So what make-up should I use?
To put the finishing touches to your coral outfit, the word on the street is 'moderation'. As coral is such a bright colour, it only needs a simple beauty look to go with it. The key to this look is a glowing complexion.
For naturally tanned skins, all you need to do is brush on a bit of bronzing powder to get that healthy glow. For pale skins, you can get a peach-and-cream complexion with an ivory foundation and a golden apricot blush. A good highlighter can also add a bit of extra light to your face. A touch of copper eyeshadow will look good with some black mascara, as the copper colour echoes the coral tones of your planned outfit. The mascara will make your eyes look bigger and turn them into a real feature.
Finally, go all out on your lips and try a slightly glossy coral lipstick. To complete your outfit, why not go for coral nails too?
Coral is a great summer colour, give it a whirl!
