It falls somewhere in the middle of the pink-orange spectrum and is fresh without being too girly (or throwback, for that matter--it's definitely the shade of choice for certain Boca retirees). Pair it with simple eye makeup and something as basic as a LBD and you've gone from an outfit to a look.
CONCEAL IT: L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Highlighter - $12.99
It's a concealer-turned-highlighter and promises to illuminate even the darkest of under eye circles.
SHADOW IT: L'Oreal Colour Riche Shadow Quads in Snooze Addict - $6.99
If you own just one eyeshadow palette, make it this one--brush the cinnamon shimmer shade across your brow, do a quick (read: lazy girl) swipe of dark brown along the lashline, and you've got a faux-smokey eye.
CORAL IT: L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolor in Tropical Coral - $7.99
There's a coral lipstick color out there for everyone, so don't be afraid to test a bunch out--but if you're looking for a quick fix, try this one.
