Soft Coral Pink

I think I've discovered a new favourite colour - at first it seemed hard to describe, but the more I started to study the soft autumn palette, the more I recognized it described as blush-coral, soft coral pink, dusky coral etc - basically, its a very soft, romantic version of coral :)  I wanted to create a look using this shade.  My absolute favourite soft-coral-pink shade is MAC liner Boldly Bare.  It's the perfect blush-coral shade!!!

I decided to take a photo in two different areas of my apartment so that you can see that in some cases, this shade morphs more pink and in others more coral!  I think this colour is the perfect 'elegant' romantic shade - its the colour you want to wear to an evening restaurant/bistro!  When various lighting hits this shade, it takes on a life of its own and it always looks chic!

For this makeup look, I started by using my MAC concealer palette and Laura Mercier Oucher Tinted Moisturizer.  I applied Trace Gold blush by MAC quite liberally - it's such a beautiful blush shade and the perfect partner for the soft coral pink lip!  On the eyes, I used Soba shadow by MAC, lined my upper lash line with Teddy liner and applied NARS Rue Bonaparte in the tear ducks and rim of the lower lash liner before applying black mascara by Dior!  For the lipstick shade, I applied Boldly Bare lipliner by MAC and blended in a touch of NARS Belle De Jour lipstick!!! :)

Very nice, but I'd like to see more soft pink in that lipstick. I note u wear a pink shirt.... I have posted a number of times today because I came across your blog and started browsing your posts.... I see u shine in the soft, cooler or perhaps cool tones versus autumn. I went to several color analysts before I found my perfect colors. My modeling instructor told me my correct season, yet I didn't think the colors were fun so I spun off on a many, many years long journey before I finally embraced exactly what she instinctively saw me as (and the colors I leaned to anyway). In the meantime, I had many color analysis done and found them to be conflicting. Embrace your more natural, soft, cooler colors... You are gorgeous in those colors! :) <3.
