The Latest Peach Beauty Trend You Have To Try
Posted by Rachael Funnell in Makeup
We love peaches, they’re delicious, fluffy and now they’re the focus of the latest trend on the beauty scene. Peach blushers are the perfect injection of warmth this winter and have taken the beauty world by storm, featuring in shoots from Michael Kors, Holly Fulton and Vogue. If your winter look is in need of heating up, then peach is the hue for you. We’ve compiled a few of our favourite looks, products and makeup application tips to help you rock the peach trend this winter. Bronzer, move over, there’s a new shade in town.
With the summer sun a long and distant memory, many of us will experience the return of the pale skin this winter. For pale, lifeless skin, peach blushers are a great way to add a subtle hint of colour without cracking out the fake tan. For a subtle application, start with a small amount of blusher on the apple of the cheeks and gradually fade out, working with the contours of your face. When applying blushers of any shade, gradual application is always the key to avoiding the accidental slap-cheek look. A great product to use for a natural look is this Face Defining Blusher palette from Iope £37.13. This palette contains a combination of peach shades to brighten skin and give it a healthy glow. However, it is important to ensure blushers are a suitable shade for your skin tone, so if you’re unsure of which products are suitable for you, try taking our quick and easy online questionnaire so you can browse the perfect online beauty products for you!
The orange undertone of peach blushers are perfect for adding glow and brightening complexions for any skin tone, however it’s important to choose the correct shade to suit you. Paler skin tones will mostly benefit from soft, pinky-peach shades, whilst dark skin tones often suit bolder shades of coral and apricot. But remember your makeup look should be as unique as you are, so it’s always important to ensure your makeup reflects your style. Thankfully this makeup trend can be altered to create bold looks or subtle hints, so you can work the peach whichever way you like to ensure you feel as fabulous as you look. If you’re looking for a warm coral blush, one of our favourites is this Torrid blusher from NARS £21.50. It’s lightweight silky texture is perfect for gradually blending to create a naturally gorgeous look.
For an extra streak of colour, a great makeup application tip is to apply the blusher to your cheeks and above the eyes. By blending the blusher in at the edges of your eyes the peach glow will give the appearance of a wash of colour rather than a defined eye shadow. One amazing product for trying out this look is this Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour blush palette from Clarins £26.50. This blush provides a combination of tones for you to experiment with when blending above the eyes and for contouring the face. With a combination of shades and textures, we think you’ll have fun discovering your latest makeup look with this luxurious fine blusher.
So it’s official, peach is the new power shade and we can’t wait to try it for ourselves. There are a huge variety of shades and finishes available so you can find the perfect products to suit your skin tone.
