Find out why we’re loving Coral this S/S 14 and how you can work it into your makeup for a totally on-trend Spring/Summer style!
Coral is the shade of Spring and Summer this year and we couldn’t be happier as this vibrant shade looks fantastic against lightly bronzed skin. We’ve selected our favourite e.l.f. must-haves in this beautiful shade for you, to inspire you to add some coral glam to your makeup the season.
Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Tiki Torches
Hypershine Lip Gloss in Flirt
Shimmer Lip Gloss in Dream
Essential Lipstick in Captivating
HD Blush in Superstar
Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky
All Over Colour Stick in Golden Peach
Mineral Eyeshadow in Natural
Coral for bold and beautiful lips
Experiment with colours this season and pair a bold coral lip with one of your accessories, like your favourite coral clutch bag. By keeping the rest of your outfit neutral it will help to bring out the colour, showing off your summery pout. It’s easy to go a bit crazy for colour as the weather gets warmer, but try not to over do it, just choose the feature you would like to stand out and make sure that the rest of your makeup and outfit is more neutral and low-key.
With the variety of coral shades available at e.l.f. – you’re sure to find the perfect one for you. If you’d like to add some sparkle to your coral lips, then the Shimmer Lip Gloss in Dream and the Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Tiki Torches are your new makeup bag must-haves. If you’re not one for the glitz but want Captivating lips, then you should not be without our Essential Lipstick in this fiery shade. To finish off any coral look you can use the Hypershine Lip Gloss in Flirt, which delivers what the name promises! This gloss leaves a playful sheen on your lips and is perfect if you are just trying out the coral shade for the first time.
Coral Cheeks to make you blush
Who said that you can only blush in rosy tones? With the range of coral e.l.f. blushes you can now get “corally” cheeks, which will complement your tan beautifully, giving you that summery look you are already longing for! Choose the Mineral Blush if you’d like to lightly dust your cheeks for a natural finish, but definitely go for the HD Blush if you want to take the art of blushing to the next level, as this product will certainly deliver a statement shade! What’s more, the HD Blush can double up as a lip stain so it’s great value for money and it means that you can match your cheeks and lips for a coordinated effect! Last but certainly by no means least, if you’re looking for a beautiful sheen which will compliment your tanned skin and highlight your cheekbones, I’d suggest to go baked, as the reflective particles in its smooth formula will add a summery shimmer to your makeup that will have you dreaming of long hot days at your favourite beach resort.
Coral Eyes, if you dare!
Don’t worry, when I say Coral Eyes – I’m not talking neon brights…yet! With these e.l.f. products you’ll be able to give your eyes a coral tint with an added warmth of golden undertones. You can apply the Colour Stick as a base/primer, to then finish your look off with the Mineral Eyeshadow in Natural, which is a light golden shade with coral undertones. You can also use these products on their own and obtain two different results, with the Mineral eyeshadow being more on the golden side, and the colour stick more coral. As its name suggests, the latter is usable all over your face, including lips and cheeks – a must have for Spring/Summer 2014!
