5 Ways to Wear Coral Makeup 5 Ways to Wear Coral Makeup 5 Ways to Wear Coral Makeup

OK ladies, hear us out. We love hot pink and bold red lipstick paired with a neutral cat eye as much as the next girl, but don’t you think it’s about time to try a new beauty look? One of the top beauty trends of the season plans to do just that by incorporating all things coral. Whether you’re hoping to switch up your lipstick, eye shadow, or blush, you’re in for a treat. Here, we show you how to wield all the best face makeup, lip makeup, and eye makeup to achieve a handful of coral beauty ideas fit for the season and, if you’re feeling adventurous, all year-round.

1. Coral Lips

Ready to give your trusted red lippie a much-needed break? Reach for a tube of coral lipstick instead! We especially love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Luminous Coral for the way it creates soft color that pops. To make the most of your coral pout, start your lip look with a little buffing action using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub. This can help get rid of any buildup on your lips so that when you pucker up your lips appear super-smooth and seriously stylish.

2. Coral Lids

Neutral lids are pretty and all, but have you ever played with bold pops of color? When you add coral to the mix you can make it pop for a bold statement eye or really blend it out for a soft hint of warm color. Whichever you choose, the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette will stock you with the shades you’ll need to create your look.

3. Coral Lash Lines

Since under-eye makeup is super-big right now, why not have a little fun on your lower lash lines? Again, you can use our eye shadow palette to bring your look to life—only this time you’ll want to use an extra dense eye makeup brush to gently coat your lash lines without going too far outside the lines.

4. Coral Cheeks

In case you were wondering, coral is one of those blush colors that’s universally flattering. Simply dust it on the apples of your cheeks and watch as it brings your full beauty look to life. To get the look, try using the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit Scented Blush Makeup in Fantastical. Not only will you love the color, but the fruity scent, too!

5. A Coral Combo

Love all these coral looks? The great thing is that you can combine them all into one monochromatic look and, unlike other color palettes, it won’t totally overwhelm your features. Sound like something you’d like to try? Follow the step-by-step face makeup tutorial below create the base for your coral combo dreams.

Step 1: Prime Your Complexion

No matter the color palette you’re working with, the best way to ensure your makeup pops is to take extra steps to make sure it lasts throughout the day. That’s where face makeup primer comes into play. Depending on the finish you’re aiming to achieve, you can use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer. Simply blend a dime-sized amount onto skin and move on to the next step.

Step 2: Apply Foundation

Next up, a little coverage. Depending on the finish you settled on, choose between the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. Instead of using a face makeup brush to apply your foundation, reach for a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, for a more airbrushed appeal.

Step 3: Conceal Any Discolorations

Even when you apply foundation, there’s still a chance that discolorations can shine through. Whether you’re experience redness, dark circles, or a pesky breakout, a few dabs of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer will do the trick. Simply dab it on and use a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender to blend it all in.

Step 4: Contour

It’s time to give your bone structure a boost. Believe it or not, a little contouring makeup can go a long way, helping to accentuate everything from your forehead to nose to cheekbones to jaw. To get the look, swipe one of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks (choose one that’s a couple shades darker than your natural skin tone) onto the hollows of your cheeks, along the edge of your forehead and jaw, as well as down the bridge of your nose and just under your lower lip. Use a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Contour Blender to blend it all out and notice just how angular your face appears.

Step 5: Highlight

Glazed-donut glows are all the rage this season. The best part? The super-sweet look is simple to achieve. Pop the top on one of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Highlighters and use a fluffy angular highlighting brush to dust some of the light-reflecting powder onto your cheekbones, above your cupid’s bow, and on the tip of your nose. So pretty!

Step 6: Set Your Look

After putting in the work to create the ultimate base for your coral makeup masterpiece, you better believe you’ll want it to last. Instead of relying on constant touchups, finish your face makeup routine with an allover dusting of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Powder. This face powder goes on super-sheer to lock your look for hours.

Step 7: Accentuate Your Lashes and Lash Lines

Even if you’re rocking coral lids or under-eyes, you can still add a swipe of eyeliner if you’d like. For an extra-summery touch, try using the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Rose Gold. After applying your eyeliner, prime your lashes with a swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base and follow it up with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Mystic Black.

Add in your coral elements and you’re ready to show off your elevated makeup look.
