Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral.

With Tangerine Tango being the color of the year and the makeup interpretation Coral, it is no wonder that this is the color you need to be wearing now. Did you know that the color Coral was actually the hottest shade on the runway last fall when the Spring 2012 shows made their debut? A perfect example is this vibrant coral lip colour from Clinique called Runway Coral.

Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral was inspired by the makeup look Jenna Menard created for the Karen Walker Spring 2012 show at New York Fashion Week. "Karen wanted the models to look youthful and femine with a sophisticated twist," explains Jenna Menard. "So I kept the eye very simple, the cheeks healthy and then went for a strong, vibrant lip. I chose bright coral because it's less expected than red."

Jenna says that to wear this shade this spring, let the lip be the focus. She recommends pairing this bold coral lip with youthful looking cheeks and eyes which can be easily done with a neutral eye shadow and a peach-toned blush.

Jenna actually took a trip to the Clinique colour lab to create this wearable, clean and bright coral. How fun! To get a little behind-the-scenes glimpse at how Runway Coral came to life, visit
