The Coral Edit



Hello Lovelies!

During the past few months I have become addicted to all things Coral. So I figured I would do what any normal Beauty Blogger would do and blog all about it. Since we have been getting a small bit of sunshine I have been of course wearing tan a bit more and I just find that a coral lip or cheek compliments the tan more than my usual pink would.  I have always been more of a pink lip/cheek girl so this is quite the change for me! 

The lip products that have helped towards this major change are the No.7 BB Lips in Blush Coral, YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion and MAC's Shy Girl. I love these because they are all long lasting, moisturizing and they look gorgeous on the lips! I have loved Shy Girl for well over a year now, it's always been that lipstick I've always gone back to. Peach Passion is a more recent addition to my collection and while I have been trying to save it for special occasions I just can't help but use it, and finally I always layer a bit of Blush Coral over the top of everything! 

For the cheeks there has only been two items that I have been reaching for, one an old faithful and one a more recent addition. I have had MAC Melba for nearly a year now and I honestly couldn't be without it. It is the perfect matte peach shade which looks nice and subtle on the cheeks! Bourjois Healthy Glow has been a recent love of mine! Its name suits it so well because it actually does give you a Healthy Glow to your cheeks, and since it is a cream to powder finish it isn't as matte as Melba but not overly sheeny either. 

And finally for the nails there has been one stand out product for me the past few months and that is Rimmel's Hip Hop. I fell in love with this polish as soon as I seen it on the shelf in Boots and knew it had to be mine. It is such a gorgeous, vibrant colour which is perfect for the Summertime! I have had this either on my fingernails or my toenails pretty constantly these past few months!

So those are my Coral picks! Have you any other recommendations for products you'd think I'd like? Have you been changing up your makeup to suit the weather?

  6. So much coral beauties here. And you happen to choose some products I've had my eyes on for ages. I've been crushing on Mac Shy Girl since well..forever. I NEED it. And the YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion for what seems like an eternity. The Bourjois Cream blush in Healthy Glow is just calling out my name because I think it'll so beautifully paired with just a tinted moisturizer and the No 7 BB Lips Coral Blush (another product I need) on the lips. Basically I'd LOVE every single product mentioned of this post. Great taste you have :)
