Coral is one of my favorite colors for spring so I decided to create a full pinky coral make up look from eyes to cheeks to lips. At the same time I’m trying a new foundation, of which the review will be up later this week. This make up look is very simple to make, but I thought it looked fresh and pretty so I still wanted to share. Forgive the slight orange teint (that’s a preview of the foundation review right there) and the slightly teary-eyed look. I took these pics in the middle of a bout of hayfever and so I looked a bit worse for wear.
The coral lips I created by using a Topshop lipstick in the shade Macaroon. I love Topshop lipstick (my all time favorite red is by them) and this is no exception. It wears alright. I find this color’s formula to be a bit creamier and thus wears off a bit quicker than my bright red one. On my cheeks I’ve been trying the Zoeva blush in He Loves Me, Maybe… It’s a pinky coral colored powder blush and I’m really liking it so far. For the eyes I went with two of my favorite MAC eyeshadows: the infamous Expensive Pink and underdog Paradisco. The latter is so underrated, hardly anybody ever talks about it. It is however, one of the prettiest coral shades ever, with a golden undertone which makes it a perfect match for Expensive Pink.
All other eyeshadows are also by MAC. That’s one thing I love about my MAC eyeshadow palette: because I picked all the colors myself, I have everything I need for a nice make up look within reach. From matte highlighters to color that go well with my eye color: it’s all there. I recently purchased a few shadows to update the palette as I didn’t have any matte crease colors nor any mattes for blending out other shades. I took out a few colors I had ended up not using very often and I put in three matte shades. That update will go online in the future. For a bit of glow I used another MAC product: the Extra Dimension Skin Finish in Fairly Precious. Keep on reading to see what else I’ve used.
