When choosing a coral red, go with a shade that has a blue base if you have pink tones in your skin or one with a yellow base if you have olive skin. Keep the rest of your makeup fresh since this color is a bold statement on its own.
If you tend to wear smoky eye makeup or want to experiment with bright eye shadow, mauve may be your best bet to keep the look glamorous, but not over the top. For a modern look, find a mauve lipstick with a matte finish.
