Do you want to replicate this summer’s raging hot look- the elegant coral dress? Well, you need to accessorize this beautiful dress with the perfect makeup. The best thing about a coral dress is that it complements every skin tone and hair color. However, to do this versatile look justice, you have to put some effort into the makeup. As the color of the dress makes a statement itself, makeup must be used in moderation. But that doesn’t mean you cannot add a bit of flair here or a dash of sparkle there. Wondering what could be the best makeup to go with coral dress? Worry not!
As coral dress complements your skin tone and complexion, don’t hide it under a thick layer of foundation and primer. Use a concealer that closely matches your skin tone to dot around the eyes or on zits and dark spots. Smudge with your finger and blend it into the skin. Over the concealer, apply tinted moisturizer. Make sure the color of the moisturizer is such that it disappears on application to the skin. If your skin is pale and you feel that your face will wash out, you can apply a darker colored foundation to impart a warmer color. Seal the base with translucent powder that gives you a dewy fresh look.

With your coral dress, you have to add a glow to your face to emphasize your look. If you have a pale complexion, apply a golden apricot powder blush with hints of gold on the apples of your cheek. With a large brush, stroke towards your temple and create a peachy glow on your face. You can also try contouring your face with the help of a highlighter. If you want to apply bronzer, put a bit of bronzing powder under your cheekbone and smudge with a brush.
Pairing a coral dress with elaborate, dramatic eyes adds to the glamour. Smoky eyes with gold highlight work really well. To start your eye makeup for coral dress, dab pink long wear paint pot or color tattoo on your eyelid with your finger and using a fluffy brush, blend it. Now apply a gold shimmer peach-pink eye shadow with throughout your lid. To give your eye a smoky look, brush a small amount of brown eye shadow along the crease and blend. On the outer edge of the eyes, with an angular brush, make a distinct V-shape with a dark burgundy eye shadow. Blend it towards the center with the brown shadow. With a pencil brush, apply a smudged line of black eye shadow under the lash ending in the V-shape drawn with burgundy. To add highlights, add a bit of champagne gold glitter near the tear ducts. Turquoise also works well with coral, so a metallic turquoise glitter can also be used.

Now using pencil eyeliner followed by a liquid one, trace just above your eyelashes with a little bit of wing tip. Apply a few coats of mascara to fluff up your eyelashes. Now to add an extra edge to your smoky eyes, use fake eyelashes, with a little trick. Cut up the lashes in half and stick them on the outer edge of your eye, stacked one on top of the other. This adds to the volume of the lashes. Run the liquid liner once again to make sure the fake lashes are indistinguishable.
For your lips, you can use a nude lipstick or a shimmery coral lipstick to play up the color more. Apply a lip balm and trace the outline of your lip with a nude liner. Fill in with your choice of lipstick.
