Color blocking has been getting a lot of press lately. Whether it’s in interior design, fashion or beauty, mixing different bright colors together for an unexpected combination is definitely hot right now. Perhaps the chicest way you can rock this trend is by color blocking your manicure and lipstick shade, reports Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog.
Cameron Diaz recently showed up at a red carpet event wearing a bright pink lipstick and a coral-red nail polish on her digits. These colors would usually be considered a clash, but they actually work well together because they’re both as equally vibrant and in the same color family. So fresh for summer! Not to mention, you won’t have to worry about getting all matchy-matchy with your favorite makeup.
If you’d like to recreate the look yourself, pick up a pink watermelon shade of lipstick. Then, grab a coral nail polish such as Lippmann Collection – Nail Lacquers in Fever. Wear with neutral blush and eyeshadow, and consider wearing a bright summery outfit to punch up the effect.
