Hi everyone! I'm Stacey from over at the very lipstick-orientated, The Makeup Edition blog. The awesome Nancy has kindly invited me over to guest post here today so I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for having me and Nancy, you rock! Fingers crossed you won't regret this! :P

So of course the topic that I bring to you all today is *drumroll* lipstick! Corals has got to be my ultimate Spring/Summer go-to and I somehow always manage to find room in my overflowing lipstick collection for a new coral lippie. The shade is vibrant, fresh, fun to wear and looks very flattering across many people. I generally find corals fitting to whatever makeup I have on or to what outfit I'm wearing, and it never fails to brighten up my overall look. Below are 3 of my favorite ways to rock a coral lipstick...

1. Keep it minimal!

There's no better way to wear a bright coral lipstick than to let it have ALL the attention. Simply add a little blush and mascara (foundation optional), then finish up with your favorite coral lipstick. Easy! The brightness of the shade will naturally take center stage!




2. Color block it!


I think it's safe to say that the color blocking trend is still going strong. So have a little fun with your makeup and brighten up you face with come color! I usually like to keep a color blocked look soft, just because I don't want any element to dominate another, but if you are going for vibrant eyes plus a vibrant lip - work it girl!


3. Add a little gold & glamor.

I love wearing gold eyeshadow. I find it to be one of the easiest ways to add a little sparkle to the eyes and it's definitely one of those it-looks-good-with-everything shades. To further enhance this look, add a pair of falsies!




I hope you guys liked my looks! :) What's your favorite way to wear coral? Also, what is your favorite coral lipstick? Thanks again Nancy for having me - I hope I did your blog proud!
