Rimmel Coral Garden Lipstick

To be honest, Pink has never worked for me in terms of a lip colour.  However, I love the idea of wearing a pink lipstick.  I was looking at my warm autumn custom swatch book and realized that the 'salmon rose' swatch is the perfect pink shade for anyone who is 'warm' toned.  I was swatching some lipstick shades and my Rimmel 'Coral Garden' lipstick was the PERFECT match to the salmon rose swatch.  I was so happy to make this discovery!!!  I tried to create a look that is very 'everyday casual'.  I always want to wear something pink when I go out for a lunch date or have a casual day event to go to.  This was the look that I created:

I started with my basic concealer and tinted moisturizer, then used a blend of MAC amber lights and cork eyeshadow on the lid into the crease.  I applied Scorch eyeliner by Urban Decay on my top lash line and finished the eye look with some mascara.  For blush, I went with MAC Coppertone, my favourite warm toned blush.  I then applied the Coral Garden lipstick by Rimmel!

I really like this look for a spring/summer look - I think that with a more bronzed complexion, this lipstick will be the perfect warm weather shade.

Renata, you mentioned that you were looking for a really great 'red' lippie for Warm Autumns.. Have you tried
Mac 'DareYa"? It is a gorgeous red, and could be a WA/TA basic red colour.

Have you tried Mac 'Dare Ya" for a basic goregous everyday WA red? I am WA/TA and love this red and get tons of
compliments wearing it.
