Coral is the Colour

If you know me you will know I adore coral makeup...If you don't, I adore coral makeup!!!

I am like a magpie if it has the word coral in it I will more than likely buy it!!!
Coral is such a versatile colour and used correctly will suit any skin tone given you find the right shade. I am lucky in that being a pale English rose most coral tones suit me so I don't have to be so careful in my choosing!!!

Here are a couple of my cute coral collection

Let me introduce me in to my favorite ever nail polish...elf fire coral
elf Fire Coral Nail Polish
With a medium consistency, and a perfectly sized applicator for the 3 stroke method (one down the middle and one down either side) this is perfect even for those of us with a not so steady hand when applying polish. It is highly pigmented and defiantly not for the faint hearted, in one coat you can get a really good coverage with no streaks, I love that if I'm in a rush I can do this however for staying power I recommend two coats and a top coat, also due to the pigmentation a base coat is essential if you don't want yellow nails when you remove it (who does!!!). I always use OPI start to finish for my base and top coat and my nails pretty much always last a week which is fantastic as I dislike the boring task of removing polish!!!

A new coral favorite of mine is an eyeshadow by Models Own it, This company is a new find of mine thanks to another makeup addicted friend. I have brought some nail polishes (five!!!) which I will be talking about in the future but for now back to the eyeshadow which is Metallic Coral

This comes in a glass pot and is full to the brim with gorgeously pigmented eyeshadow!!! unfortunately it doesn't come with a sifter so I purchased some separately from ebay...Cheap as chips, this isn't necessary but I know I can be messy so I decided I would save my carpet and get some!!!

I used this the other day in a coral inspired look and it was perfect, supper pigmented and really easy to blend, I actually preferred to use my fingers for this product to pack it on. would you like a tutorial on this easy coral look??? Let me know.
