11 Nov TREND ALERT: Just Peachy

Peachy tones look great on just about everyone. Wear as a subtle wash over eyelids, as a bright matte lip that matches the sunset, or try adding a pop of coral to your cheeks. There are endless ways to wear this summer trend. Bright or burnt shades of orange make a statement and look great on eyes or lips. Lighter peach and apricot tones look stunning worn as eye shadow or blush. Whether you prefer to go barefaced or bold, here’s how you can wear the trend now.


If you have blue eyes, a peach eye shadow should already be a go-to in your makeup bag. Peach tones make baby blues appear bigger and brighter. Even if you don’t have blue eyes, peach is still super flattering. It looks great worn alone with just a few swipes of mascara or pared with eyeliner and a taupe shadow in the crease. Try MAC Eyeshadow in Red Brick ($33), NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Mediteranee ($50) and 3CE Creamy Cheek Stick in Candy Shop ($40).


Need to look fab in five minutes or less? A bright orange lip is the answer to looking chic with minimum effort. Simply apply a bold matte lip, pull your hair back into a low ponytail and you’re ready to go. Try Sephora Collection Wonderful Cushion Lips in 02 Wonderful Coral ($16) or MAC Lipstick in Morange ($36). If a bright lip isn’t your style, a subtle and sheer peach lip suits most skin tones. We love Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm SPF 15 in Peach ($9) for an everyday nude lip.


Warm up your complexion with soft coral or apricot cheeks. Lighter shades brighten up fair skin, where as a deep almost burnt blush is the perfect accessory to a tan. Try Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Glisten ($38), Ere Perez Pure Rice Powder Blush in Bondi Blush ($38) and Sephora Colourful Blush in Amuse Me ($19).
