How to Wear Coral Blush in the Winter

Why Coral Should Be Your New Favorite Winter Shade

One of the makeup rules that seems to always get repeated is that brights are for warm weather and darker hues are for the cooler temps. But rules are meant to be broken, right? Olivia Munn proved that last night when she stepped out with a coral shade blended into the apples of her cheeks. Instead of looking wildly out of place, Olivia's makeup looked current and ultrafeminine.

So why coral blush in the Winter time? The hue works well with a wide variety of skin tones, so it transitions easily with your paler complexion in the Winter. And the color gives your cheeks that I-just-stepped-out-of-the-cold glow, which is the perfect cold-weather flush. Matching coral blushes to your undertones is also easy — deeper tones should reach for a heavily pigmented coral while women with lighter skin will want something a little less harsh. The main thing to remember when picking your Winter blush is to shop for a cream formula, like Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef ($13). It will stick better than a powder blush, plus it's more hydrating for your skin and will give you a more healthy-looking glow.
