Crazy for Coral Must-Have Beauty Picks

Feeling a little washed out? So are we. In fact, we’re already daydreaming about sun-soaked summer strolls and picnics in the park. To perk up in the meantime, we’re adding coral to our beauty repertoire—and we think you should too. Delicate yet daring, the versatile peachy-hue can instantly liven up your look. Whether you want to punch up your pout or intensify your eyes, snag one (or all) of these Target finds that are having their own moment in the sun. So without further ado, here’s the cream of the coral crop.

A peach pout. Your pretty pucker is calling for some color! Satisfy it with lipsticks and glosses that complement your skin tone. Just remember: Olive and dark skin will look dewy and dazzling in brighter colors like the Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color with SPF16 in Vivid Color or Sunkissed and Pixi Succulent Lip Twin No. 2 in Coral Camellia, while fair skin fares well with a more muted version like the NP Set Luscious Lip Shine Collection.

Beachy blush. Can’t wait three months for that natural glow you’ll rock come June? Don’t worry—we’re on the same page. That’s why we’ve picked out these three apricot-colored blushes for you. Tip: swipe upwards to spotlight and add some structure to your cheekbones.

A retro nod for your nails. Ladies, trust us on this one: This citrusy shade is a subtler (but still striking) take on the highlighter hues you’ve been sporting all season. This Pixi colour and exclusive Nicole by OPI nail lacquer are gorgeous glosses for your trendy talons.

Eye-opening color. Show your lids some love by swiping a line of Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen across your eyes. The happy hue will brighten your eyes, adding a dose of freshness to your overall look.

It’s in the bag. Now that you have all the supplies you need, where are you going to put them? In Sonia Kashuk’s covert cosmetics case, of course. Secure your lipsticks, shadows, blush and polishes in this sleek bamboo clutch for any mid-day touch-ups. Plus, it comes with four multi-purpose brushes— does it get better than that? We didn’t think so either.
