Pretty in peach

Looking for a suit-anyone makeup shade that’s perfect for this time of year? Well, say hello to peach.

More sophisticated than plain old pink, you can dress peach up or down with ease – and it’s flattering to most skin tones, whether yours is pale or olive. Plus it’s deliciously summery. Basically, it’s just peachy!

Peach do’s and don’ts

  • DoN’T mix peach with brash or vivid tones. Instead, bring in a few neutral beige shades.

  • Do use different textures. Mix matte with gloss or a hint of shimmer. Keep it subtle though.

  • DoN’T use peach all over. For instance, team peach on lips and cheeks with neutrals on the eyes.

  • Do go for a bit of drama by teaming peach eyeshadow with black eyeliner on the upper lids.

  • DoN’T over-compensate for paleness with too much colour – a little blusher goes a long way.

  • Do keep foundation sheer and avoid lots of face powder.

If you’ve got… PALE SKIN – go for soft pinky shades of peach and pale corals.

oLIVE SKIN – you’ll look great in brown or red-toned shades of peach and bright corals.
