The warmer weather brings out the lighter side for fashion, which is one of the reasons we’re dying for summer to get here. It’s just around the corner too, which is why we need to revisit coral blush. Coral has always been one of the colors that signifies the start of spring and summer, but this year coral is THE color to have.

Just like hot red lips were extra sizzlin’ last year, coral has taken its place. It’s suitable for most skin tones and like most other colors, can be toned up and down with relative ease.

This color should be one of the staples of any make-up lover’s beauty routine because of its versatility alone. You can pretty much never have too many corals. Besides it being perfect all around, it’s the best color to try if you’re either new to make-up or not used to branching out.

Curious to try out some new shades? Here are a few of our favorite brands:

MAC Cremeblend Blush ($21)

Tarte is well known for the natural elements of their products. The company doesn’t use mineral oils (which clogs your pores) in their make-up, which is just one of the several reason’s this blush is on our list. They have several peachy, coral options that go on vibrantly and last all day. Check out “Tipsy”.

Bare Minerals Loose Powder Blush ($19)
