Spring Trend: The Coral Lip

⩆⩆⩆

Store-away winter reds and reach for a bright coral. One of Spring’s hottest trends, a coral lip is fresh, vibrant and instantly brightens your complexion.

Surprisingly, coral is a neutral tone, therefore, it looks good on everyone (warm or cool-toned). When selecting a shade that is right for you, the trick is to pick a shade that matches your undertones. If your skin has gold or yellow undertones, a peachier/orange coral will be most flattering. If you have pink undertones, choose a pink or red-based coral. Lastly, to keep the look modern and fresh, try to stay away from shimmers and frosts.

Festive Fingernails: Best Red Nail Polish

✯✯✯

Red nail polish is a constant around the holidays. This bold color is festive, classic and timeless. However, not all reds are created equal. To find a red hue that complements your skintone follow these simple rules.

✳ For dark or golden skintones:  bright, true reds look best.

✳ For pink undertones: lighter, orange-reds – will make skin look less ruddy.

✳ For pale skintones: the contrast of a blue-red is striking.

Red nail polish has a tendency to stain your nails. Apply a base coat first so your nails are protected from unwanted and hard to remove stains.  Here are five red nail polishes, every girl should own:

Chanel ~ Dragon: $25.00
OPI ~ Big Apple: $8.50
Revlon ~ All Fired Up: $4.79
China Glaze ~ Ruby Pumps: $6.50
Nars ~ Jungle Red: $17.00
