How to Get the Perfect Coral Lip How to Get the Perfect Coral Lip How to Get the Perfect Coral Lip

You probably have plenty of lipsticks in your makeup bag—nude lipstick, red lipstick, pink lipstick, and the list of classic colors goes on and on. But what about coral lipstick? This orangey reddish pink hue is absolutely stunning—and the good news is, it looks gorgeous on anyone! Coral is particularly a popular shade during the summer months, as it looks stunning against bronzed skin—that’s why you’ll often see women sporting manis and pedis in this shade. (Of course, you know the only safe way to get a summer tan is by using self-tanner!) Below, we’re sharing a step-by-step tutorial for creating an entire makeup look that centers around pretty coral lipstick, along with tips on how to remove your makeup the right way at the end of the day.

Step 1: Create Your Base with Foundation

The first step in your makeup routine should be your face makeup. Start by applying a primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer. Primer can help create an even canvas for the rest of your makeup application, so don’t skip out on this step. Then, follow up with a foundation in the same finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation (which just so happens to be our best foundation for dry skin). For a seamless finish, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to dab and roll the foundation onto your skin. Finish with a touch of concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, under your eyes and anywhere else you need a little extra coverage.

Step 2: Keep Your Eye Makeup Simple

Coral lipstick is pretty bold—so don’t have your eyes and lips compete for attention. Go for a subdued eye makeup look—a little bit of eyeliner and mascara is all that you need. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Black to draw a thin line across your upper lid, flicking it out ever-so-slightly when you reach the outer corner of your eye. You can also use this eyeliner to tightline by applying it to your waterline. Finish up your eye makeup with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.

Step 3: Prep Your Lips

It’s not time to apply your coral lipstick just yet. First, use a scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Scrub, to buff away any dead skin cells from the surface of your lips. Apply the scrub to dry lips, then gently massage it in with wet fingers and wash off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Once you’re done scrubbing, pat on a nourishing lip balm.

Step 4: Apply Coral Lipstick

We’ve reached the moment you’ve been waiting for! It’s time to apply your coral lipstick. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Luminous Coral has a shiny finish that’s totally eye-catching. Start in the center of your upper lip and work your way outward, following the contour of your mouth. Then glide the coral lipstick across your entire bottom lip. Your makeup look is complete!

Step 5: Remove Your Makeup at the End of the Day

Ready to take your makeup off at the end of the day? Opt for a micellar water, a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option that can be used to remove makeup. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face, eyes, and lips. Sleeping in your makeup is a major skin care no-no, as your makeup can mix with the dirt and oil that has built up on the surface of your skin, leading to clogged pores—and clogged pores can lead to breakouts. Once you’re done removing your makeup, make sure to apply a moisturizer.
