I must admit that this is an area that I have only recently gotten into.  I’m all about the eyes but I have come to realize that the right cheek colour and application could take a look to another level!!!

Again, there are many different formulations for cheek colours and these include:

  • Liquids
  • Mousses

LOTD: A bronzey, coral look!!

Hey!!

So in celebration of the amazing warm weather we’ve been having, I decided to make use of one of my favourite colours of the season, coral.  Honestly, I don’t know why it took me so long to discover this colour.  I think it had something to do with a wedding that I was in as a child, and had to wear the MOST hideous peach bridesmaid dress ever…..and the makeup was just wrong…..sigh….

So I was browsing the M.A.C. website and was looking at the face charts that they published for the collection.

I was instantly drawn to this stunning coral look, with a shot of turquoise along the waterline.  I loved it!  Coincidentally, oranges and blues are complementary and look amazing together in the right proportion.  So the coral makes the turquoise liner pop even more!!!!  A great summer look!!!!

I may repeat this look soon, so I’ll try to take better pics!

Enjoy! 🙂
