Finally! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming! Spring has sprung and this season’s hottest makeup trend is CORAL COLORS! The gorgeous shades are ranging from soft peachy tones to bold burnt orange colors.
Coral hues are so much fun to wear and an awesome way to fake that glowing tanned look you may have after the start of the sunny season! Check out Mila Kunis’ subtle peachy-coral look at the Golden Globes!
Bobbi Brown has one of the best coral collections for the season. A friend recently gave me a Shimmer Brick as a birthday present and I am obsessed with it!
You can use all the colors blended on your cheeks and use them individually on your eyes for a subtler, sheer eyeshadow look. It has just the perfect amount of shimmer, so you don’t look like you just rolled in glitter; instead you look dewy and radiantly glowing!
Here are some other great coral picks to try out this Spring…
Eyes: Try MAC’s Paint Pot in “Rubenesque” for a soft peachy gold-toned look. For a bolder look layer Urban Decay’s “Jones” or “X” eyeshadow over your favorite primer!
Lips: Do you want something that has staying power? Try Tarte’s LipSurgance Natural Lip Luster in Joy or Peaceful, both have peachy tones. I am a huge fan of these lip stains, not only because the color is long wearing but because they provide an instant boost of moisture to your lips with natural ingredients like jojoba seed oil and Vitamin E. Plus, they taste like peppermint!
Are you more of a gloss girl? You might like Clinique’s Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour in Guava Good or Mango-thon, both are orange tones perfect for spring and summer! The Lip Smoothies by Clinique are a staple in my purse because they are one of the only lip glosses I have found that does not leave my lips feeling sticky or dried out after it wears off. Instead, my lips feel softer than before I applied it!
Cheeks: A great coral blush can bring just the right amount of warmth to your face, and give you that freshly flushed look! You have to try CORALista by Benefit, a peachy coral color that is just sheer enough for everyday use, but still gives you a pop of color!

I just LOVE how the coral eyeshadow makes her green eyes pop! What do you think, will you try this colorful trend this season?
