Coral lips are hot for the summer of 2008! You don't have to go wild with bright orange. You can be subtle, and light, and pretty. Just a dab, will do ya.
If you are olive-skinned with dark hair and dark eyes, bingo! Coral can look quite appealing on you. Let's say, you aren't sure coral lips are right for your hair and skintone, then buy a cheaper brand. Forget the Chanels and Diors and Lancomes.
Coral always seems to work in summer. It looks so lovely against tanned skin, and it brightens your smile, and your teeth look whiter. Check out the photo of actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. The coral lipstick/gloss she has on is perfect. And look how beautifully coral complements her turquoise dress. Coral and turquoise look amazing together.
