Ever so often, there is a makeup trend that takes beauty world, and social media, by storm. And this year it is the peach makeup look. (Justin Bieber might have played a part in this!). From soft peachy eyes to a sun-kissed complexion, this easy-to-create, universally flattering trend is perfect for both, day and night makeup looks. Here is a quick step-by-step guide to recreate this look so you too can look pretty in peach!
Step 1 – Lay down your base
The key to any makeup look is a solid base. Start your face makeup by prepping your skin with a primer. Next, use a dewy foundation and apply a light layer with a makeup sponge. Use a brightening concealer to cover any dark circles, acne scars, and blemishes. The peach makeup look is all about adding a healthy, natural flush to the skin, so work in light layers and avoid using an extremely matte, full-coverage foundation. To make your matte foundations dewy and luminous, mix in a few drops of a liquid highlighter and you are all set to add a radiant glow to your complexion. Next, set the T-zone and other oily parts of your face with a light dust of a setting powder.
Dark undereye circles can make your entire face look tired and dull. To give your complexion an instant boost, use a concealer and setting powder that is one shade lighter than your usual and brighten up the area. To find the right shade of concealer that brightens your complexion just enough, first use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your exact shade match in concealer and powder. Next, look for the next lightest shade in both these products and you are all set to look fresh-faced and radiant even on days when you have to rely on copious amounts of coffee to get you through!
For a dreamy peachy complexion, add a touch of warmth to your skin with a summery, peach blush. The Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush in the shade Nude Peach is an ideal product for this look and will have your cheeks looking like a juicy peach in no time. Follow up with a soft golden highlighter to illuminate the high points of your face and finish the base of your peach makeup.
Step 2 – Colour your eyes with peach eyeshadow
Experiment with different light and dark peach colour eyeshadows to find the right palette for your skin tone. To create a truly monochromatic peachy makeup look, use the blush from your cheeks on your eyelids as well. Keep the rest of your eyes simple and finish off with a coat of your favourite mascara. For a nighttime peach eye makeup, outline and define your eyes with a gel eyeliner to create a soft, smudged look. Intensify your makeup by adding a pair of dramatic wings and create a bold statement. When working with subtle peach eyeshadow looks, line your eyes with a brown or soft black eyeliner to make them pop without looking out of place. You can also smudge some kajal on your lower lash line to take your peach eye makeup to the next level. Lightly fill in your eyebrows and add some highlight under the arches and your peachy eyes are all done.
Step 3 – Get a peachy pout
Create an inviting peach makeup look by colouring your lips with a muted peach colour lipstick. The Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – Beige Appeal is a perfect dark peach colour lipstick that adds a burst of colour while still keeping your makeup on trend. To break the monotony of this peach makeup look without going astray, try the Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – Rosy Peach. This light pink peach colour lipstick will blend effortlessly with the rest of your peachy makeup despite having a cooler undertone. Check out the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool to test these different peach coloured lipsticks until you find the right shade that complements your skin tone. Complete your lip makeup with the final touch a lip balm for a mesmerizing, ultra-hydrated look. The Maybelline Baby Lips Bloom Lip Balm in the shade Peach Bloom is just the finishing touch this look needs!
Set your face with a few spritzes of a makeup setting spray and give your skin an extra boost of glowy goodness. Here is a peach makeup hack for you – while your skin is still damp from the setting spray, add some more highlighter on your skin to give it that glossy, glass-skin look!
