Beauty Face of the Day

fotd: colour me coral

August 9, 2014

I’ve been all about the coral lately. As someone who has always been perpetually pale, it’s never a colour I’ve been able to pull off before, but trust a couple weeks of LA sun to change that. Thanks for the tan, California!


Yesterday morning, while Adam and I were leaving the house, he stopped me for an impromptu photo-shoot in our lobby (so glam, right?) and managed to capture my coral obsession in full force. Coral lips, coral cheeks, a coral blouse…and had he shot full-body, he would have caught my coral pedicure too.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s the perfect summer colour. Warm, fun and fresh – what’s not to love? To match my coral lips, I used shimmery warm neutrals on my eyes and blended blush and bronzer for a peachy hue on my cheeks.

coral4Skin: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Fair, with Medium Beige as a contour.

Cheeks: Bare Minerals All-Over Face Colour in Warmth, mixed with Bare Minerals blush in Lovely.

Eyes: Buck (all over), Smog (in the crease) and Sidecar (as a highlight) eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Naked PaletteMAC Fuidline eyeliner in Blacktrack / Lancome Hypnose Mascara in Black.

Lips: OCC Lip Tar in Kimber, mixed with Sephora’s Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Colour in Lilac.


What do you think? I’m pretty sure this is going to be my go-to look for a while!
