This spring shades of coral lipstick are popping up everywhere and many brides have been walking down the aisle wearing a touch of coral lip color. Soft petal or bright tangy shades are great for any tropical destination wedding.

A coral lip color will complement any sun-kissed bride if selected correctly. Fair skinned to brown skinned ladies could all wear the shade of coral. The shade varies from sheer to vibrant. What's great about this hue is it can be worn with a neutral eye and bronzed skin or a strong dark eye and contour cheek. Pick your shade of coral according to your skin tone.

On Fair skin: sheer coral with a hint of pink will be perfect.
On Medium skin: a true coral or peach color topped with a high gloss.
On Olive skin: deep coral on a bronze skin is flawless.
On Dark skin: bold, bright shades would pop making your lips the main focus.

On the bride I used the following products:

*Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Airbrush Makeup & Blush
*L'OREAL PARIS Hip Cream Eye liner in Black
*L'OREAL PARIS Colour Riche Lipstick in Peach Fuzz
*Victoria’s Secret Lip gloss in Slice of Heaven

No more thinking that coral lipstick is only for your grandmother.
