{Crazy for Coral}

1. M.A.C, Amplified Lipstick in Morange ($15): Zac Posen brought this matte M.A.C lipstick to the forefront in 2009, and we love its bold hue. Not quite neon, this hot coral is perfect for any summer occasion.
2. Chanel, Rouge Allure Lipstick in Pimpante ($34): This cool tangerine shade has a slightly sheer finish with a hint of frost that will flatter neutral and warm complexions.
3. Kjaer Weis, Organic Lip Tint in Sweetness ($48): A flattering coral with a pink undertone, this creamy lip tint will bring a fresh and girly feel to your look.
4.Revlon, Moon Drops Crème Lipstick in Orange Flip ($7.19): A cult classic that’s bright and cheerful, this poppy hue is great on fair skin.
5. Maybelline, Color Whisper in Coral Ambition ($7.49): The gel formulation of this soft peachy coral gives a translucent finish that is perfect for those “au naturel” days.

{I found the one} Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Estee Lauder original Double Wear =  new holy grail of foundations. This stuff is unreal. It’s too bad I have been turned off by brands like Estee Lauder (Clinique, Lancome) due to their “mature” reputation, because this product is perfect for, well – anyone.

Face makeup (foundations, concealers, and powders) is what I am most particular about in my routine. I figure if you are going to cover your skin with makeup, you want it to look enhanced, or at least better than if you didn’t have makeup on. If it looks worse than when you started, well, #losing.

Here are the product details from Estee Lauder’s website:

15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. TRUE

This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity. TRUE

Won’t change color, smudge or come off on clothes. TRUE – although putting powder over sort of ruins it, since powder rubs off…

Feels lightweight and comfortable. TRUE

Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day. TRUE!

It is worth a try. Grab a sample from Macy’s or Nordstrom. You won’t be disappointed. Plus it comes in 30 shades, so you are sure to find a perfect match.

Price varies, but I paid $36.00 at Macy’s. Mac pump (recommended) is $8.00.
