Coral is a popular color for spring and on Sunday night’s red carpet we received a sneak peek of how it works in makeup.

Emily Blunt, Gretchen Mol and Emma Stone were all done up in a palette of peach and coral and it looked fresh, spring-y and provided an effervescent alternative to the dramatic red lip or smoky eye.


Blunt’s makeup artist Jenn Streicher was inspired by the vibrant green of the actress’ Oscar de la Renta gown. ‘I usually focus on her eyes,’ says Streicher. ‘But this time we went for the lips.’

The makeup artist used a pink-coral hue by Tom Ford called Flamingo. She kept the eyes fairly simple, just adding a lot of lashes, Dior deep brown eye liner and a sweep of pearly pink eye shadows (Chanel Quad #34 Eclosion and #92 Rose de Mai) across her lids.

Streicher played up the cheeks with a coral shade -- YSL powder #2.

‘I knew it would be warm outside,’ she says ‘And I wanted to keep the look fresh and spring-y.’

Mol’s makeup also encompassed the trendy spring hue. Her makeup artist Daniel Martin was inspired by the film ‘In the Mood for Love’ which meant defined eyes and a pop of peach on the cheeks along with a fresh coral lip to bring some contrast to her white L’Wren Scott gown.

Her blush was Lancome’s Blush Subtil in Nectar Riche and the lip color was Lancome’s Rouge in Love in Corail in Love.

Mol’s eyes were defined with Lancome’s new Liner Design in Black Fishnet and 5 Pan Palette in Sunset Fling.
