Colour of the moment: coral
Forget outfits that no one can afford, if there’s one thing we couldn’t wait to see hit the shelves after New York Fashion Week, it was the popping coral lip colour sported at the Karen Walker Spring/Summer 2012 runway show. Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral to be exact.
The perfect blend of pink and red, this hue is super hot – for summer in NYC or our upcoming autumn (think hot beach days or golden-tree lined streets and you’ll see that it’s a colour that suits any transitional season).
Anyway, the great news is that this exact colour – created by Clinique’s Global Colour Artist, Jenna Menard, especially for the Karen Walker show – is now available on our shores. Hurrah! But it’s only available for a limited time, and only online (we always knew the best things were exclusively online), so if you want in on one of the hottest colour trends since taupe nails first came into fashion, you’ll want to get clicking to get your coral fixin’.
Not sure how to wear coral? It’s really very easy and requires little effort apart from a slick of this super-cool lippy. “Apply Runway Coral with a lip brush so that the look is precise…[then team with] a neutral eye shadow, peach-toned blush and a few coats of mascara,” advises Menard. Guaranteed to leave you looking youthful and feminine with a sophisticated twist!
