Peach Up Your Face
Hello, summer! That means sun-kissed cheeks, simple makeup and organic beauty are back. Save the harsh colors for fall and winter. Now, it’s your time to shine. No makeup color looks more natural than peach. Peach lips, eyes and cheeks are easy to get. Here’s how.
Sweep it on
Peach eyeshadow makes blue eyes pop, but that doesn’t mean other eye colors can’t pull it off. Lorac Eyeshadow in Moonstone (Sephora, $19) is a gorgeous, neutral tone that would make any eye color stand out without overwhelming its natural beauty. The slight shimmer in the shade gives your lids extra dimension, while the smoothing formula prevents mid-day shadow creases.
Bring light into those eyes with peach! Eyeliner doesn’t always have to be black or brown -- especially in the playful, warm summer months. Peach eyeliner is a great way to make blue and green eyes stand out. POP Beauty Hot Pot Gel Eyeliner in Peach Prize (Amazon.com, $16) will make those peepers stand out. Not only is the formula smooth, but the gel eyeliner will stay in place if set with a light dusting of face powder.
Blush it up
Peach cheeks are reminiscent of youthful, glowing skin. Get the perfect peach with MAC’s Cremeblend Blush in Something Special (maccosmetics.com, $20). The buildable color and smooth formula is great for warmer months when you don’t wear much foundation. Add a bit more color until you find the perfect match for your occasion.
Everyone needs a great lip gloss to make lips look full and youthful, but finding the right shade can be tedious. NYX’s Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Peach (Amazon.com, $6) is a gorgeous, sheer, neutral shade that can be worn over lipstick or on its own for a day at the beach. Plus, a combination of mineral and lanolin oils protect the lips from chapping from the summer sun.
Amp up the lips
Gloss is great during the day, but at night you might want a bit more impact to your lip. Revlon’s ColorBurst Lipstick in peach (Target.com, $7) is a pigmented, weightless formula that builds as you put on more. It moisturizes and adds color at the same time, using the moisturizer and antioxidants in sweet almond oil, but it’s still light to the touch.
