TODAYS TUESDAY TREND IS THE MUST HAVE CORAL LIP THAT IS SIMPLY GORGEOUS FOR THIS SPRING! TALK ABOUT COMPLIMENTING SKIN TONE! READ ON…..
The season’s must-try lip shade is beachy and hot — sound familiar Miami? Instead of constantly reaching for our usual red, we’re switching gears for spring and embracing a coral kisser — inspired by the pretty . Coral lips on recent shoots I have worked on, including Spring Fashion Week! To help you pick your perfect coral match, here are a few tips, While the hue may look vivid, it’s a surprisingly versatile shade: “Coral is actually a neutral color, meaning it can be both warm and cool so it works for everyone.”
When it comes to selecting a statement-making pop of color for your lips, the trick to picking the right one is not based on your skin’s actual shade, but rather your undertones. “If your skin has gold or yellow undertones, a peachier or orange coral will be most flattering. If you have pink undertones, choose a pink or red-based coral.”
With those tips in mind, here are five new coral lip colors to get you started with spring’s freshest beauty trend. From shiny and sheer balm to high-impact lipstick, check out the prettiest peachy-hued lip products to add to your beauty bag.Tarte’s vibrant coral has a warm golden sheen to it and is infused with maracuja oil to make your lips look and feel, well, divine.

FASHION WEEK FRIDAY….
I originally was going to do fashion week trends every Sunday, but decided EVERY Friday would be better to get you up to date before the weekend, in case you want to try one of the looks for a day or night out!
So here it is, Friday Look #1 is brought straight to YOU from the Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Week! This is from the designer Wes Gordon. At his show, the makeup look is fresh, the nail style is bold, and there hair is effortless! Heres the details…
NEW YORK FASHION WEEK S/S 2012
Wes Gordon’s luxe-for-the-youth collection for New York Fashion Week was fresh-faced and optimistic for the spring season. ”She’s sleek and civilized, but she might scratch your eyes out” remarked Wes of his collection’s muse.
“The makeup at Wes Gordon is fresh, young, and elegant,” said Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. “The skin is dewy, the brow is strong, and the lip pops with sheer color.” To get the young and sophisticated spring look, Charlotte first applied Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation for flawless skin, then created strong brows using Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil two shades darker than models’ natural brow color. For a youthful glow, Charlotte applied Maybelline Fit Me! Blush in Medium Coral. She then stained the center of lips with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Very Cherry, a sheer bright red. Charlotte also dabbed Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched over lips and eyes for an overall dewy effect.
To complement the spirited and retro vibe of the designs, CND manicurist Kristina Estabrooks crafted rounded nails into an almond shape and applied two coats of CND Colour in Poppyfield, a stunning, nearly-neon shade of coral. Toes were kept clean and neutral with CND Colour in Desert Suede.
