If you love a bold lip, get ready to seriously upgrade your look for spring/summer ’19. Why? Because coral lipstick is officially trending, and we’re completely obsessed. This dreamy mix of punchy pink, peach and orange is your new-season way to make a fire statement, with one swipe instantly adding a tropical vibe that screams ‘out of office ON’. Keep scrolling to discover four coral lipsticks to add to your summer lip wardrobe, from the low-key hue that’s almost nude to the everything-proof matte that keeps your pout moisturised.
1. The Low-Key Coral
Low-key? A coral? We’ve made it a thing with Lasting Finish Lipstick in Coral in Gold (right); an orange-y, peachy, pink-y shade with a subtle hint of tan-enhancing gold shimmer. Try this hue if you’ve got a thing for nude lipsticks that complement a smokey eye, and you’ll get up to eight hours of flawlessness in a single sweep. Bronze goddess coming through.
2. The Bold Coral
Commit to the trend with a bold coral lip. Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade 37 gives you a vivid, vibrant shot of colour with a little shine and a lot of pigment. For the kind of drama you need in your life, team it with a stroke of cobalt liner, like Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Blue. The shades look incredible together.
3. The Matte Coral
Because matte lipstick never goes out of style, of course we need a coral shade. Our pick? Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Coral Sass (left). Apply, blot and reapply for velvety colour that stays on. The super-matte formula is kiss-proof, touch-proof, and waterproof, too. Total lip #goals.
4. The Glossy Coral
Lip gloss is back in a big way, so why not wear two trends at once? Do gloss like a boss with Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint in the suits-all-skin-tones shade, Contemporary Coral. Try it for a sheer kiss of juicy colour that’s beyond addictive; we love wearing it with a no-makeup makeup look for the ultimate ‘I woke up like this’ finish. Oh, and if you do want to punch it up, simply use one of the shades above as a high-pigment base.
Match Lips and Cheeks
Have you heard? Matchy-matchy monochrome makeup is all over Instagram, with our favourite beauty bloggers wearing the same cool colours on their lips and cheeks. If you’re down, pair your coral lip with Jelly Blush in Peach Punch for a juicy, gel-like tint, or go for Maxi Blush in Sweet Cheeks if powder blusher is your ride-or-die.
Match Lips and Tips
Another way to do monochrome makeup is by twinning on your lips and tips. No one wants chips, so try 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish in Coralicious (right) for ultra-glossy colour that lasts for up to 10 days. After applying two coats, glide the clear Super Gel Top Coat over the top, or go for the Glitter Finish if you’re looking for a sparkly effect.
