One of my favorite summer shades is coral. I love wearing it on my nails, toes and clothes. Hey- that rhymed. Sort of. But another easy way to wear the color, and make a statement, is with a coral lip. When your clothes are simple, this bold color will transform your look in a second.
The best part about coral is that is works on all skin tones. Fair-skinned women look best with a pink-coral, medium-skinned can pull off just about anything and darker-skinned women can go more on the orange side. If you’re hesitant to try this, opt for a lip gloss or stain. If you have a little more courage, try a matte lipstick or pair your lip color with a line of blue eyeliner to make your face stand out. If wearing coral lipstick brings me a little bit closer towards looking as hot as Jessica Alba, I’ll take it.
Here are a few of my favorite products- both high-end products from Sephora and drugstore brands, too. I aim to please every budget here, people!
