coral lip crush> Mac coral bliss

This year, it seems the number 1 colour trend has been coral. Clothes, nails, blush, lips- you can't avoid it- and my particular favourite colour products is Mac's Lipstick in Coral Bliss.

MAC describes this shade as a frosted light coral, but to me it's more of a peachy, papaya coral. I love how I can wear this during the daytime as it is, or mattify it with invisible setting powder as a little colour on my lips without being too obvious, and then carry it on into the night by adding a gloss or lip lacquer for a sheenier, shinier look.

I always apply lipstick after using a lip scrub- I use a homemade one or the Lush bubblegum scrub- so the end look is as smooth and clean as possible. I love MAC lipsticks as they are super pigmented meaning you don't have to use a lot of it to get the desired colour. However, I do find myself having to re-apply this lipstick around every 4 hours, which is a little annoying.

For a very coral- based look, on a spring day I would team this lipstick with pinky-brown smokey eyes, peach blush and a cute up-do or half up-do. For clothes, I would wear a long coral knitted cardigan and a cream tank top with coral or pink  floral or tie-dye jeans on colder days or pink cut-off shorts on warmer days.
