How to Wear Blue & Coral the Natural Way

This post is sponsored by Target.

Hi My Loves!!

Today I'm going to show you how to incorporate the ever so fabulous colors of spring and summer into your everyday makeup routine. Sometimes blues and corals can be a little intimidating for the neutral makeup ladies, so this is the perfect way to add a pop of color for the season while still keeping natural and appropriate for everyday wear. 

All of the items I used can be found at your local Target. Here's the look I came up with. 

By using the Pacifica palette, even though I used blues, they are a very soft and subtle blue so they still look very soft on the eyes. By adding the grayish taupe and navy, it calms down the teal blue and makes it much more wearable. If you don't want to wear bright coral on the lips, you can always go with a more peachy nude toned coral on the lips and then a nice pop of coral on the cheek. Coral is the perfect blush color in the spring and summer for warming up the face.

Here's everything I used to create this look:

For the eyes I used the grey taupe color in the crease with a fluffy brush. With a flat brush I took the teal blue all over the lid. Then I put the champagne color on my brow bone and tear duct. The golden creamy color was applied to my inner third of my lid and then I took the navy in my outer crease and on my lash line. I also took the teal blue on my lower lash line.

These lip colors are a perfect peachy nude coral combination if you aren't fond of bright corals.

If you do love a strong coral lip then here are a few brighter options for you. These would be perfect for turning your day look into a perfect nighttime makeup as well.

Now if makeup isn't your thing you can still rock those blues and corals by wearing them on your nails. Here are some gorgeous options for you to try.
