Celebrity Beauty Style: Rebecca Romijn Beautiful In Coral

One of the hottest beauty trends for Spring are coral lips. There's no doubt that Rebecca Romijn is drop dead gorgeous but in the past she has looked a little drag-queen to me. Too much makeup sometimes works against her strong features but her coral and sun-kissed glow in this picture makes her look radiant and her features soft. This look is wearable any time of the day and works on every skin tone. Coral lips also enhance a sunny bronze tan. To compliment coral lips, stick with neutral tones in bronze, golds and browns and loads of mascara. Recreate the look with:

Eyes: As a base apply Chanel's Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Atoll, a golden sand, all over the eye. On the lid and into the crease sweep on Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Tigre, a soft bronze. Smudge Safari, a stone brown, into the lash line for subtle smolder. Apply a few coats of Inimitable Waterproof Mascara Multi-Dimensionelle for full voluminous lashes.

Face: For an all-over sun-kissed glow, apply a light gel-cream formula like Bronze Universel De Chanel Sun Illuminator on the high points of the face: forehead, cheekbones, nose, and chin.

Cheeks: To enhance a bronze tan, sweep on Soleil Tan De Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Sable d'Or on the apples of the cheeks.

Lips: Kiss the lips with a beautiful coral tone like Chanel's Aqualumiere Sheer Color Lip Shine SPF 15 in Zanzibar, a soft peach for fairer skin, and Mauritias, a bronzed coral for darker skin.
