A spring color pallet often includes hues of crisp coral and tantalizing turquoise. But fashion isn’t always about apparel and accessories; it includes cosmetics. This season, the dynamic color duo is not only making a splash on clothes, it’s also a make-up match made in heaven.

It seems that shades of coral and turquoise are dominating the cosmetic counters and I could not be more excited about it. First up – nail polish! I’m usually all about the goth-girl polish, but the bright, nontraditional hues are refreshing for Spring. We all need a break from O.P.I.’s ‘Lincoln Park After Dark‘ and oranges and greens are the perfect way to keep your look cool. ‘Orange Fizz‘ and ‘Jade‘ by Chanel are both nail-tastic formulas.

The face is also getting a coral and turquoise make 0ver. Various shades of coral colored lipstick was seen on models all over the spring/summer runways, including at the Anna Sui show and consumers are catching on. YSL has a stunning shade called Faubourg Peach. Bobbi Brown launched an entire collection called Cabana Corals Collection which includes, lipsticks, blushes and shadows.

Turquoise eye shadow and eye liner also colored the runways as seen at Nanette Lepore. Nars has a cream duo shadow called ‘Burn it Blue’ and MAC produces ‘Minted’ eyeliner. Both products will capture the turquoise trend.

May you be inspired to experience the Coral Reef and Turquoise Coast.
