Coral Lips!

Hi everyone,

I'm really happy you enjoyed my last post.  Almost everyone who commented expressed their love for the Tory Burch lipstick.  Because of all of your comments you have inspired me to make a post focusing on a shade of a very versatile variety- say that five times fast (I'm feeling kind of silly today so just bear with me).  And that shade is... coral!  Ok I'm pretty sure that you have heard of coral colored things before and I have mentioned it a couple times on my blog.  But what on earth is a coral shade anyway?  The words coral lipstick are almost as ambiguous as nude lipstick, in the sense that everyone has their own definition.  Well I am going to show you the two shades that come to my mind when I think of coral:  The mild kind and the hot kind (kind of like hot sauce).  I guess that is the best way to describe it because after all, there is a mild shade (less orange and a bit more pink)  and and intense (orange-red) shade.

Coral is perfect for Summer and it can be worn by all skin tones.

Here is how to wear the shade:
If you are planning on going for an intense lip try to keep your eye makeup on the more subdued side unless you are going to a party.

Below are inspiration for Light, Olive, Medium, and Dark skin tones:

Which shade do you prefer mild or intense?

Thanks everyone who inspired me to make this post!
That reminds me.  If you have any suggestions or post ideas don't hesitate to share!

  3. Lovely post and I like how you featured the comments also!! :) I love a good orange lip but feel some brighter shades clash with my red hair so I really like the more neutral shades xx | Giveaway

    1. I know what you mean. I'm more of a neutral shades type of person myself.

  4. I am guilty of this summer trend! It's so chic! Wishing you well. (:

  5. nice colors!

  6. Great post dear! I prefer light and mild shades. Coral lips are so pretty and WAY more unique then just a plain red or a pink, because they can get kinda boring, and it's nice to switch it up for spring :)
    Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous weekend<3
