A large, juicy slice of watermelon and the smell of strawberries ripening on the vine are two of my most vivid summer memories from childhood. Perhaps these recollections are why melon and berry hued shades tend to make their way into my beauty routine when summer approaches.
Coral should be easy and breezy — just like a summer day. It’s a shade that tends to be universally flattering and doesn’t need to be over-thought. Unlike selecting the perfect shade of teeth-whitening red, coral is more forgiving. I tend to favor corals that are more pink than orange and suggest this for most skin tones.
W3LL PEOPLE has developed several products in shades of coral that are free of cruelty, parabens, petrochemicals, glycols, silicones, sulphates, artificial dyes, artificial fragrance, GMOs and nanoparticles. Try out our no nasties makeup in this season’s hottest color with our Universalist Multi-Stick No. 7 (pictured, $34.50). No. 7 is a bright peony shade that washes cheeks with chemical-free color. For lips, our coconut-oil packed Bio Extreme Lipgloss in Grapefruit (pictured, $23.50) uses a state-of-the-art peptide complex to rejuvenate lips while it volumizes and soothes. If you prefer a balm or stain, you might tend toward our Nudist Colorbalm 1 ($19.50) which will give your lips a beautiful coral glow while providing nourishing hydration with omega oils and aloe. Bring the coral trend to your eyes in a subtle and complementary way with a few swipes of our Elitist Eyeshadow Powder 814 ($16.00).
