'Tis the Season to be Coral

A change in season is always closely followed by a change in wardrobe. Now, for any make-up obsessive, that wardrobe overhaul also extends to include our make-up. The palettes of brown and black are pushed to the back of the drawer and, in their place, we dip our brushes into brights and neons, changing our entire make-up look with one swish of a brush.

A colour I always revert to come summertime is coral. I love how tropical it looks and how the bright orange-y red hue makes any eye colour, dare I say it, pop *shudders*. Thankfully, coral has been the colour of the season for the past two summers and this year it's once again holding the top spot, albeit sharing with yellow. 

Naturally, I have amassed a rather hefty collection of coral make-up products over the past few seasons and wanted to share my favourites with you for inspiration.

  1. I love coral for summer! I went to inglot though and the SA told me it wouldn't look good on me because I had red hair and suggested I try purple instead. Bahh, think I'll give it a try anyway

  2. I always think rules like that can be bent, sure Sinead has dark red hair, totally do give it a try! :)

  3. I adore colour, the weird thing is when I wear a coral lip shade I always feel like it doesn't suit me and I change it, yet I keep buying them! xxx

  4. I love coral, love everything you showed!

  5. Never really a look i would go for but have changed my hair colour recently to a much lighter shade so might give a few of these colours a go

  6. You should, they're beautiful for summer! S x

  7. i love coral, especially lips and nails! :)
