The Pantone colour of the year 2019 is Living Coral and we couldn't be happier. The colour brings back fond memories of a vacation in the tropics, freshly squeezed OJ and some marmalade. Bright, bubbly and vibrant, this shade instantly brightens up your complexion. All the variations of the shade - orange, coral and peach have some amount of warmth to them. This makes Living Coral exceptionally versatile. You could wear the colour anywhere, and by that, we mean on your lips, lids, cheeks and even tips. If coral wasn't a colour you've quite warmed up to, it's a good time to start.
Coral, orange and peach makeup usually takes center stage in summers. And it can be as subtle or sunshine-y as you'd like. We've found you some of the best, celebrity-inspired coral toned makeup looks AND the products that you'll need to recreate them!

Pink blushes don't work for a lot of skin tones. That's where peach blush comes into play. It's one of those colours that flatter every skin tone. It's probably because it adds just the right hint of warmth to your skin. It's also the most natural looking shade of blush that you can pick up. Top off a peach lipstick with a little bit of peach blush and you've got yourself a pretty-peachy makeup look.
You don't need to invest in an additional eyeshadow palette to create a coral-inspired makeup look. You can use your peach blush as eyeshadow and create an absolutely-mellow yet very feminine makeup look. Sweep a little bit of your blush into the crease of your eyes!
