We have noticed a trend emerging here at Grazia Daily, not only are we having a love affair with coral lips, but it seems like everyone else is too! The deliciously summery hue has been spotted all over the red carpet-on a playful, Carly Rae Jepson, a sophisticated, Leighton Meester and a very striking Zooey Deschanel. Clearly flexible then! So, what is it about this trendy shade that has caused everyone to embrace coral kissers?
Well, we believe the starlets have cracked the perfect kind of lippy for this colour– we are talking a non-matt, non-gloss, subtle sheen that works both warm and cool looks. Nifty huh? Our favourite lip belongs to the sexy, Crystal Renn (it helps that she’s an uber-babe), whose bold, tangerine take doesn’t just avoid overpowering her outfit, but pulls it all together. Genius right?
Fear not, you too can look just as dreamy-it’s all about knowing what’s the perfect hue for you. We are here, as ever, to point you in the right direction:
