The Coral Trend - Quick and Simple Coral Eyes

Coral is HOT this spring, both in fashion and in the makeup world. It is easiest to wear coral on the lips or on the cheeks, but coral is also a great shade for eyes, as long as you don't over do it...cuz then you'll look like you were in a rumble....kapow!

This is a quick coral eye look I did the other day using the following:
  1. MAC Goldmine shadow on the inner lid
  2. MAC Vanilla shadow in the inner corner
  3. MAC Coral shadow (PRO product) on the entire upper lid and lower lid
  4. MAC Swiss Chocolate shadow in crease
  5. MAC Blitz and Glitz Fluidine to line the upper id
  6. MAC Plushlash mascara on upper lashes

Since I use a joe-schmo camera, the definition in the crease looks a lil funny, but you get the idea. 

I know coral is difficult to pull off on the eyes, but hopefully this gives you a fun way to pull it off. What do you think? What colors do you find hard to wear on the eyes?


  1. I think the shade that you have is easy to wear and soft enough for the summer.:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. Oooh this looks gorgeous! I am always afraid to try corals on my eyes but now that summer is coming I might give it a spin.

  3. Coral is such a beautiful shade! I just started using a coral shade but try to keep in minimal. I think the one I use is Hot Hot Hot, would this be a close dupe for the Coral you used?

  4. Pretty :) I just got the new "Firecracker" shadow from To the Beach and I think I'll try this look with it :)

  5. i think your camera took a great photo. i'm still struggling with close-ups with my camera.

    love what you did here. i can't wait to get better at eye makeup!

  6. Beautiful look!!!
    I must say, I 'm not one to try the coral on my eyes, but I could definitely wear something along these lines... great post girl! :)


  7. @Marie Thanks! The shade itself is quite bright in the pan, but blended it looks very wearable.

    @Devs Let me know if you try it and like it!

    @Neena Hot Hot Hot is similar but has more of a reddish tone. You can definitely use it lightly and add more color to intensify it if you like.

    @Nosh This would be nice with Firecracker...let me know how you like it!

    @Cheryl Photography with makeup is hard...takes practice, time, and some moola!

    @tina_mbc Thanks! I think you could pull this off! Best part is, its not permanent so try it and see if you like it! =)
