Last year, the peach makeup color palette took the beauty industry by storm. From soft pastels to creamy transition shades and neon corals, you can bet this summer you'll still be seeing peach everywhere! This color palette is so versatile and there's such a wide range of looks that can be created with the peach color palette. We're here to bring you all the peach looks you need to try right now! The best part? You can wear most of these looks year round because peach is a neutral shade that goes with everything!
Look fresh and radiant this summer with a peach color palette. Peach has quickly replaced beige, grey and taupe as the "it" neutral shade. There's a good explanation for that, too. Although the aforementioned shades make great neutrals, they can easily make your complexion look dull and sometimes even ill if not worn correctly.
Peach is the exact opposite! You can literally swipe just one stand alone peach shade by itself on the lids for a quick, pick-me-up shade! You can also apply one shade with different brushes to make it look like you've applied multiple shades because using several brushes gives you a different effect.
GET THE LOOK:
Use a fluffy blending brush with a defined, tapered point to deposit a light wash of color across the crease. Then, use a pointed, pencil brush to deposit opaque color on the outer 'v' and to add depth to the look. This easily brightens and adds an immediate soft contour and lift to the lids. What more can you want from a single shade, right?!
Now, if you do decide you have an extra minute or two to spare, add a soft taupe or beige to the outer 'v' to add more depth to the look. It creates a quick soft smokey look. Add an ivory or champagne shade in the corners to illuminate and bring light to the look.
Since peach is an earthy neutral shade it is universally flattering across all skin tones and eye colors! It can be worn everyday for a soft, wearable look.
Add bright pastels to your peach palette for an instant brightening effect.
