#CultBeautyTrendWatch: Why Peach Will Be This Season’s Hue

Just as the catwalks are awash with ruffles, make up is taking a turn for the ‘girly’ with peach coming out as the new ‘hue de jour’. Soft and decidedly feminine, this prettily pink-orange hybrid is gracing eyelids, lips and cheeks to grant a glow (and inspire warm, fuzzy feelings). It’s wonderfully romantic (escapism anyone!?) and suits almost every skin tone… so, take a bite of this cute beauty fruit with our edit of make up (and skin care) favourites…

{For eyes}

Create a ‘wash’ all over eyelids for an understated, beautifully brightening effect. Beauty Bakerie’s {EyesCream} in ‘Pancake’ is perfectly pale (and interesting), while Stila’s {Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow} in ‘Rose Gold Retro’ has a gorgeous foil finish and silver sequins for some evening glitz. 

Or channel Lily Collins’ gorgeous ‘Golden Globes’ look with a veil of Surratt’s {Artistique Eyeshadow} in ‘Poudre’ – a soft, matte peach that’s perfectly princess-worthy.

{For cheeks}

The most flattering flush, peach tones lend warmth to our sun-starved visages. Choose apricot blushers and honeysuckle highlighters to make it look like winter never happened…

For just-pinched-your-cheeks prettiness, apply Stila’s {Convertible Colour} in ‘Petunia’, or 3 Concept Eye’s {Creamy Cheek Stick} in ‘Sweet Apricot’ – blending with your fingers for a dewy glow. Then exaggerate cheekbones (and brighten your brow bones) with Laura Geller’s {Baked Gelato} in shade ‘Peachy Glow’ – a gold-flecked luminiser that complements all complexions.

{For lips}

Eliminate scales with TONYMOLY’s irresistible {Peach Lip Balm} then perfect your pout with a pretty peach stain. We’re besotted with Rituel de Fille’s {Enchanted Lip Sheer} in ‘Bittersweet’ for a wash of see-through pigment, or increase the intensity with Beauty Bakerie’s long-wear {Lip Whip} in ‘Love Palace’.

If you like cream with your peaches, try NudeStix {Lip and Cheek Pencil} in either ‘Love’ or ‘Soul’, or prepare to be smitten with {Charlotte Tilbury} {Hot Lips} in ‘Kidman’s Kiss’.

And don’t neglect your nails…

Slather your hands with TONYMOLY’s fuzzy {Peach Hand Cream} (an ADORABLE desk-side adornment), then paint your tips with Smith & Cult’s {Porn-A-Thon Nail Lacquer} – a provocative peach that’s the easiest way to embrace this burgeoning beauty trend.
