I have to admit that yes, I've been on a coral craze lately!!! I've been trying to find a way to wear an uber-bright coral lipstick and balance my eyemakeup with enough depth, without going too bright as well - I wanted the look to be balanced between smokey cat eyes and bright lips. I didn't want to go with grey's or soft black shades on the eye - I wanted the end result to be on the warmer side, but still fairly neutral. I think that a bright shade like coral looks the most 'elegant' and 'classy' with neutral shades on the eyes - the key is not to look like you've just escaped the circus!!!
On the eyes, I used Motif eyeshadow as a base and then again on the lip and blended 'Embark' into the crease and also into my eyeliner (I smudged it into the top lashline)
To line my eyes, I used 'Coffee' eyeliner by MAC and finished the look off with some black mascara
I didn't want my blush to fight with my eyes or lips, so I kept it in the peachy coral family by using my trusted 'Coppertone' blush by MAC
On my lips, I used none other than 'Vegas Volt' lipstick by MAC
Note: Later on that day I played around with Vegas Volt and found the 'perfect' lip combination (I'll have to blog about it soon) - I've been really into mixing different liners and even adding light peach/coral blushes and eyeshadows to the centre of the lip (it also locks in the lipstick and makes it last a lot longer)! ANyhow, I ended up lining my entire lip with 'Hover' lipliner, then layering on Vegas volt (it tones down the coral and makes it very wearable for daytime) - I then added 'Motif' into the cente of my lip and blended it into the lipstick - the end result was simply stunning (I wish I took a picture because it worked so well with the eyes - I guess I'll just have to re-create the look another time):
