In 2019, coral is slated to be the hottest shade—for everything from fashion to home decor—which means it’s time to add coral to your makeup look. One of the easiest (not to mention seriously stunning) ways to incorporate a coral hue into your everyday look? A coral blush! There are a number of ways to add this popping cheek color into your makeup routine, and we’re here to share all the details. Keep reading for our best coral blushes and three makeup looks that will help you rock them.
Our best Coral Blushes
Embrace the coral trend with these four coral blushes:
L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Fantastical: As if coral blush wasn’t exciting enough on its own, this pretty hue also has an amazing, fruity scent.
L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Coral Lift: Love blush with a bit of shimmer? This cream to powder blush, with its illuminating formula, is perfect for you.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks in Cheeky Dimension: Maybe you prefer cream blush over powder. In that case, try blending this convenient blush stick onto your cheeks.
Coral Blush Look #1: Singular Focus
Hone in on the coral makeup trend by keeping things simple and focusing on coral cheeks. Here’s how to get the look:
Step #1: Apply your base
Start your look off right by perfecting your complexion with a full coverage foundation that will allow your coral blush to stand out to the fullest extent. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. This foundation will give your skin medium to full coverage for a fresh, healthy-looking complexion.
Step #2: Grab your blush
It’s time whip out your coral blush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. Not sure where your apples are? You can smile to make them more prominent, so you’ll know exactly where to apply the blush. If you have a fair skin tone, apply it with a light hand to avoid creating too harsh of a contrast against your pale skin. If you have a deeper skin tone, layer on the color for a bolder look.
Step #3: Fill in your brows
For this makeup look, you can skip the eye shadow and keep the attention on your cheeks. Instead, define your eyes by filling in your brows with the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel.
Step #4: Coat your lashes
Finish your eye makeup by coating your lashes with mascara! We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara.
Step #5: Paint your pout
Top your lips with a nude lip gloss, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Bare Attraction, to complete your look.
Coral Blush Look #2: Double the Fun
Can’t get enough of coral? Amp things up with a makeup look that features two times the coral.
Step #1: Perfect your complexion
Get started by giving yourself a radiant complexion with the L’Oréal Paris True Match® Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. This highlighting glow lotion will give you an all-over, natural-looking glow.
Step #2: Grab your blush
Next, take your coral blush of choice and apply it to your cheekbones to define your facial structure while giving your complexion a flush of color.
Step #3: Apply eye shadow
It’s time for eye shadow! Give yourself a coral smoky eye with the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette; this will beautifully complement your coral blush. Apply the palette’s coral shade on your lid, then blend the darkest brown shade into your crease to smoke things out. Drag that same color along your lower lash line for a sultry look. Finish the eye shadow portion of your look by placing the lightest shade around your inner corner to brighten your eyes.
Step #4: Reach for mascara
Sweep a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise™ Mystic Black onto your lashes.
Step #5: Color your lips
Keep your lips simple by painting them with a nude lipstick that will allow your cheeks and eyes to do the talking. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick in Utmost Taupe or find the best nude lipstick for your skin tone.
Coral Blush Look #3: lucky number three
What’s better than two coral accents? Three! Your coral blush can be accompanied by a coral eye and lip for an overall coral makeup look. The more coral the merrier!
Step #1: Apply foundation
For this makeup look, give yourself glowing skin with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation. The lightweight formula will give your skin medium coverage and a radiant glow.
Step #2: Create your flush
You should have this step down pat by now! Use a makeup brush to give your cheeks a pop of coral color.
Step #3: Color your eyes
For your eye shadow, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Shopping Spree. First, apply the nude shade onto your lid. Then, use the coral shade in your crease—and that’s it for eye shadow.
Step #4: Layer on mascara
Next, you’ll want to move right along to mascara. Coat your lashes with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise™ Washable Mascara.
Step #5: Grab your lipstick
For your third dose of coral, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Cool Coral to your pout. This full coverage lip paint will color your pout with a vivid coral hue.
