During a press day promoting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Margot Robbie went for a monochromatic beauty look with shades of apricot on her lids, lips, cheeks and nails. Paired with an all-ivory ensemble and she positively glowed.

A Vibrant Coral

Kacey Musgraves rocked a vibrant coral mani while performing at Governors Ball Music Festival earlier this summer. The saturated hue pops against fair skin and is especially flattering thanks to the balance of warm and cool tones.
