Whether you’re going for a popping, bold look, a slightly neutral look, or a barely-there, fresh look, there is a coral eyeshadow shade for every skin tone and for every type of eye makeup. Coral looks stunning on everyone. So it’s unfair to treat it as a transition shade in some purple palette. For that reason, I’ve put together a range of coral eyeshadows that have different undertones to suit every skin tone and every eye color.
From cool, pink undertones to warm, orangey undertones, find below the best coral eyeshadows in singles and palettes.
This powder, matte-finish palette is all about high-impact, incredibly pigmented shades. The palette is great for creating layered, detailed looks. But each shade is a star on its own. And each one can make your whole look as they are super-rich and the colors are hard to miss.
You have both peachy corals and pink corals to match your skin tone. And there are two shimmer shades to jazz things up. If you’re like me and too lazy to blend, you practically have 9 one-and-done shades for any occasion. The only downside is that there is a bit of fallout during the application. Still, it’s worth it!
Everyone simply loved the Sweet Talk Palette by Colourpop for its super fun peach colors. But I think this one has a better focus on corals and does include prettier peaches. The combination of matte and metallic finishes gives you a lot of room to play around with different looks.
And the best part about the palette is that you have golden, almost bronzy shades that really complement the corals for glowy makeup. Whether you have dark skin or light skin, this is one of the most affordable coral eyeshadow palettes you’ll absolutely love.
Neither matte nor shimmer, this is a beautiful satin finish color. The shade is not easy to describe as it’s all coral, peach, rose, and pink at the same time. This one-and-done coral-like eyeshadow is the easiest way to freshen up the eyes.
The color is not too pigmented, which is exactly what you need when you want a nice definition without being too dramatic with your eye makeup. It’s super budget-friendly too!
I’m always, without exception, skeptical of celebrity makeup launches. And I’m always, without exception, pleasantly surprised. The same thing happened with Rare Beauty. These waterproof liquid eyeshadow colors are some of the most energizing shades I’ve seen in a while.
All colors in the collection are a bubbly bunch. But this shade is just the right coral bright for fresh, youthful eye makeup. The liquid-to-powder color applies super easily, dries down quickly, and has a satin finish.
This palette packs 3 incredibly light, matte finish shades with 3 shimmer ones. The overall vibe is more like peachy coral as opposed to pink coral. They’re great for any skin tone to instantly brighten up the complexion.
You can use the matte shades for defining the eyes for everyday wear and just give your eyes a flush of color to match with coral lipstick. You can also create vibrant spring/summer looks with flattering shimmers.
Cream eyeshadows look natural on everyone, but they’re exceptionally flattering for mature skin. This clean formula is not fully buttery but creamy enough to just dab your finger and wipe over your lids. The eyeshadow has a beautiful dewy finish that lasts long.
And it’s the perfect addition for an all-cream makeup look. This particular peach shade has orange undertones, which gives it a bright coral vibe. It looks amazing for subtle and natural looks but can be built up for more intensity.
This does not look like your typical coral eyeshadow palette. But it’s actually an incredibly versatile pan where you can explore coral to the extremes. The shades Lola and Dakota give you the depth of red and even burgundy.
These two shades complement every eye color on the planet. And they work great for smokey looks too. You have a combination of mattes, metallics, and chromes to jump from everyday makeup to sparkling glams.
These are some of my personal coral favorites. If you’re new to the color and aren’t sure how to put together a whole look using it, here are some tips.
Start with a single shade. It’s the safest and most comfortable way to test out a new color. Faint, subtle shades of coral on the eyes match well with nude, glossy lips as well as bold lips. You get a natural, everyday look perfect for summertime makeup.
To try rich and pigmented coral eyeshadows, like the one in Huda’s palette, try skipping base makeup. Skip the foundation, skip the eyeliner, and just color up your lids and lips and finish off with mascara.
Use a very subtle pinkish shade on the cheeks. Let the eyes and the lips pop. It looks super trendy, confident, and chic at the same time.
