Get The Look: Coral Crush


Ideal all year round, make room for a versatile coral red in your makeup wardrobe. It can be warmed up for winter with bronze eye makeup and golden cheeks (as in this gorgeous Get The Look), or worn alone, with just a sweep of mascara and a tinted moisturiser, on balmy summer days.

As well as being stockist for many homegrown beauties, Beautiful Because is proud to have handpicked and imported some of the finest natural makeup brands from across the globe, used by professional eco makeup artists to get beautiful results without compromise. This stunning look was created using some of those brands especially for BB, by Sydney-based organic makeup artist Cathy Tolpigin. The perfect mix of luxe, eco-makeup used includes Inika, Gressa, Au Naturale Cosmetics, Lily Lolo and Kjaer Weis.


Following your natural moisturiser of choice, next prep your skin with Inika’s Primer, for a longer lasting, more flawless finish.

Next, apply your certified organic foundation – model wears INIKA Beige. Conceal any imperfections with a high-performing, versatile concealer; model wears Au Naturale’s Completely Covered Creme Concealer in Oaxaca.


Get that beautiful bronze glow with an Au Naturale’s Bronzer. Apply a light sweep all over your face, with accentuation on the cheeks, upper forehead and jawline for a flattering finish. Add a little blush to the apples of your cheeks. Gressa Luminous Blush Fluid in Elise is just the perfect neutral pink. Finally a little highlight will add light to all the right places - brow bones, cupid’s bow, upper cheekbone. Au Naturale’s Rose Gold is a beautiful warm rose.


Now for the fun part! Use cream eyeshadows for a lovely soft finish. Apply Au Naturale’s Cream Eyeshadow in Ivory all over the eyelid for your base. Next, apply Gressa’s Cream Eyeshadow in Bronce to the crease of the eyelid, gently blending with an eyeshadow brush for a professional finish. Add eyeliner for more definition to the upper and lower lash lines; brown works beautifully here, Inika’s Organic Eyeliner in Coco is just the shade for soft, sultry sophistication. Finish with a few sweeps of mascara – Lily Lolo Natural Mascara in Black.

For brows, fill in any gaps, soften and accentuate your natural brow shape with Eco Brow gel wax. Model wears Sharon.


The beautiful coral lipstick used here is Kjaer Weis’ Affection. As you can see on the model, it is a modern take on Coral – a soft red that is on-trend and versatile for all skin tones.
