Coral lips are hot, hot, hot!

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

If the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk shows are anything to go by, you better believe that orange is this spring’s hottest hue for lips! And, if you’re thinking that only Marc Jacobs’ models can rock the look, don’t fret because it’s a trend that’s easily accessible and anyone can pull off!

Get the look
Before you invest in coral, think about your undertones. If you’re warm, opt for a orange or pink-based coral. Those with cool undertones will look best in a coral that has a bit of blue in it. If you’re unsure, chat to a make-up counter assistant who can help you tell the difference.
