I can’t get enough of the bright lipstick trend this spring. My newest favorite bold shade is Clinique’s Runway Coral. It was first spotted on models at the Karen Walker Spring 2012 show. The limited edition color was created by Jenna Menard, Clinique’s Global Colour Artist.
“Karen wanted the models to look youthful and feminine with a sophisticated twist,” Menard says. “So I kept the eye very simple, the cheeks healthy and then went for a strong vibrant lip. I chose bright coral because it’s less expected than red.”
Not sure how to wear the color? Menard suggests pairing it with a neutral eye shadow, peach-toned blush and a few coats of mascara.
Here I am wearing it. I used the Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Ivy and skipped the shadow. Runway Coral has quickly become one of my faves this spring.
The Limited Edition Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral launches in May, exclusively on Clinique.com.
