2. Fill in eyebrows with Christi Harris Precision Brow Planing System.

3. Pat Coral Crepe Paint Pot onto the eyelid to create a wash of color.

4. Line upper lash line with Milani Liquid Eye Liner and lower eye with Designer Purpler.

5. Curl lashes and apply mascara. Add a pair of fake lashes for more definition.

6. Using MAC #109 Small Contour Brush, apply Perfect Topping on top of the cheekbones, on the temples and down the nose to bring out features.

Beauty Tip: Coral is a universal color that will work on a variety of skin tones. Those with lighter skin tone should go for lighter, peachier corals while darker skin looks better with brighter corals with orange/red undertones. Check out these tips for more info on how to rock the color.

  2. Thanks Princesa Livia! You should totally use Coral Crepe as a blush – it will look great on your skin tone.

    I almost got Dressmaker Dressmaker too but ended up with Made To Order because it made my lips pop more =)

  3. OMG! I looove this look! Definitely a sign that summer is near =)
    I love coral colors but is not sure if the color would look good on me =(

  4. Hi I was just wondering if I could request a picture without the circle contacts? I find them a bit distracting and they take away form the makeup look :(. Much appreciated, thanks! :)

  5. this is totally the look i grab for minus the lashes (too fabulous for my abilities). i love coral and purple! and I love how you make it look :)

  6. I really love this everyday spring look ! The combo purple eyeliner + coral lips is GREAT !
    I use Coral paint pot with paradisco e/s :)

  7. When you highlight and you said apply perfect topping on temples, is that the side of the forehead? I never knew you’re suppose to place it there.

  8. Hi phyllis,
    I love your makeup looks. I know you have a few entries on megan fox’s makeup but I was wondering if you could do a Megan Fox FOTD/look for us? I like the neutral yet sultry style :)

  9. Thanks for replying to my email! I haven’t seen the milani liners in purple for some reason, but I did get the gold one and love it. Love this look, and those tips for coral shades to match your skintone are so helpful.

  10. Tiffany,

    Yes I did blend the highlighter from my cheekbone up to the temples right by my eyebrow to give my eyes a lift.
