The look: Coral Nudes

Go natural with corals and browns. This trend is all about making your skin look naturally fresh looking. Perfect for a daytime look this Spring.

Get the look

After cleansing, toning and moisturising the skin use a foundation that matches you skin tone to create a flawless base.

Cover up any blemishes, red patches or dark circles with a concealer a shade lighter than your skin tone.

For the eyes: Use a nude coral colour eye shadow across the eyelid from lash to crease. Then use a light brown eye shadow on the outer edge of the eye lid. Blend with a brush to create a soft smoky eye.

Use a brown gel eye liner to draw a line close to the top and bottom lashes to define the eyes. Finish with a coat of black or brown mascara.

For the cheeks: use a coral cream blusher and apply to the apples of the cheeks. Blend up along the cheekbones towards the hair line.

For the lips: create a soft look by using a coral lip colour and apply across the lips with a brush. Finish with a layer of clear lip gloss.

Box: Charles' top tip: “When applying blusher think of the shape of a hockey stick. Start by putting a little blush on the apples of the cheeks (this is the base of the hockey stick), then blend up along the cheekbones to the hairline (to create the handle of the hockey stick).
