ICYMI, Pantone announced its color of the year for 2019: Living Coral. The sight of this vibrant orange hue alone immediately got the beauty junkie in us giddy, taking our 2018 obsession for peachy shades to a whole new level. Before the year officially ends, it's time to make room for the new It color in our collections (and on our faces!)—but if you're not sure how to wear it yet, here are celeb-approved ideas you can add to your inspo list:
1. Janine Gutierrez
Cheat glossy lids with light coral eye shadow with a subtle hint of shimmer. Dab some on your lids using your finger for fuller pigment!
2. Anne Curtis
A bold wash of color on your lids is both a statement and an effortless way to rock the shade. Try an all-matte look like Anne's for a budgeproof beat.
3. Martine Ho
On the go? Cop Martine's go-to makeup trick: a full face using one lipstick! Use a creamy matte bullet that'll allow you to blend the color seamlessly on your eyes and cheeks.
4. Julia Barretto
Coral lips are typically reserved for summer, but since it's officially the color of the year, feel free to rock that pout all year round.
5. Mika Dela Cruz
For a juicy pout that doesn't bleed, make your first layer a matte liquid lipstick that won't feather outside your lip line. Wait for it to dry down fully before applying a generous helping of gloss!
6. Sue Ramirez
Smudged lips are high on our trend radar, too, and the procedure here is simple—swipe on as much lipstick as you want and use your finger to smudge it out. Don't stop until you get rid of the harsh lines!
7. Kiana Valenciano
Play with contrasts and wear your coral eye look with a color that's just as eye-catching. Check out how Kiana paired a bright orange lid with a light blue on her inner corners:
8. Heart Evangelista
Sunset eyes are the new alternative to a black smolder. The key here is to build the colors slowly, going from light browns and peaches to their darker counterparts.
9. Yassi Pressman
If coral is usually not part of your routine, wearing it as a blush is one way to tell if it's for you.
10. Kris Bernal
Mixing and matching your coral makeup with complementary hues like soft pinks allows you to wear the color without going full-on fruity. Shades of brown, blue, and beige work well with it, too!
