Eye Makeup For Coral Dress
Step By Step Tutorial:
Step 1: Select the appropriate shadow tone that correlates with your skin tone. Wearing light-toned makeup with dark clothes will make you look washed out.
Conversely, wearing dark makeup with light clothes makes your eyes pop and draws attention to them, which accentuates your features and skin tone for a more flattering appearance.
Step 2: First, apply a light shadow, matte lipstick, and mascara. This will bring out your cheekbones and makes your lips appear fuller. Then, use an angled brush for the eye shadow application area. Pick a warm coral tone.
Step 3: Apply a matte nude/peach shade under the brow bone to highlight the inner corner of the eye and smooth out any sharp lines from the previous shadows. This will make your eyes pop, further complementing the entire striking appearance of your outfit.
Continue to add eyeliner and mascara.
Step 4: Finally, add a small amount of lipstick to your lips. You can use a tinted lip balm or any other lip gloss that fits with your outfit. We recommend using a matte finish lipstick to prevent your lips from appearing too shiny.
What Coral Dresses Are Available?
Coral has become a staple this summer, so there are tons of options out there to wear it.
Color Theory: Coral is hues of orange, red, and yellow.
Colors To Avoid When Wearing A Coral Dress
Beige, the color of white marble. It is an unflattering tone on any skin tone.
Salmon is another unflattering color that may not work well with a coral dress, as it appears pinkish in certain lights. This can make you look washed out and/or as if you have a cold.
Other Colors To Try
Beige, pink, and peach tones such as nude or light coral will also help highlight your features and give you a more flattering appearance for your outfit.
Choosing The Correct Foundation Shade
The proper shade of foundation can really bring out the beauty in your outfit. We recommend using a lighter shade, such as a beige or yellow tone, for natural coverage and a glowing look.
To really highlight your features, using a darker foundation shade may be best, such as coffee or dark/deep brown for an all-over tan appearance.
Choosing The Correct Eyeshadow Shades
One of the most important things to remember is to avoid the look of a mask that can appear when you wear dark eye shadow and heavy mascara. The focus should be on enhancing your natural facial features, not covering them up.
For a striking appearance in coral-colored attire, you will want to complement your outfit with eye makeup that really pops compared to your eyes.
The best way to achieve this is using an orange or red colored shadow on top with light purple and/or pink tones underneath.
Choosing The Correct Lipstick Shade
When using lip color, you will want to pick a shade that complements your skin tone. For instance, if your skin is flushed, you may want to choose a pink or coral red shade. However, if your complexion is lighter, use a lip color that will enhance it.
Try painting your lips with a lip liner first to ensure the perfect shape before applying your lipstick. This will give you an immediate beautiful effect and keep you looking fresh throughout the day.
The Bottom Line
Coral is a fiery color this summer. Whether you’re planning on heading to the beach, to an outdoor cocktail party, or just want to feel and look fabulous, be sure to remember these tips for the best and most flattering coral eye makeup. Have fun and enjoy your perfect look!
