Beach Peach

You know that moment when you're looking for a blush or a lipstick but you don't want to go pink because it's just that little bit too bright, or mauve because it's too dark and Autumnal? That's where Peach comes in for me. I naturally gravitate towards all peach shades and undertones when it comes to Spring and Summer time as I find it compliments my skin tone the best when both tanned and pre-tan and I love the natural glow and finish it leaves my skin. As an ode to peach, I decided to round up my favourite Peach products that I've been using recently which leave you with the perfect Beach Peach Summer Glow!

For the lips I don't think you can find a prettier Peach Lipstick than Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G 'Bitch Perfect'. I've had this for over a year and it's my second most worn CT lipstick after Pillow Talk. This is such a lovely lightweight lipstick and is so comfortable to wear especially on those hotter days. It's definitely more of a sheer satin lipstick but the colour pigment is still quite opaque considering and leaves your lips looking juicier and fuller because of the glossy finish. 

For the cheeks the obvious contender for a peachy blush would have to be my Milani Luminoso Blush. Probably my favourite blush in my entire collection this product works not only for the Summer time but all year round. It adds an effortless glow and the formula is to die for. It's incredibly pigmented but it's also so easy to work on the skin and blend out. Another product I use is the I Heart Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts Peachy Pink Kiss . As this is a little bit more peach and pink toned I tend to not use this as a highlighter but instead as a blush topper so that if I'm going for a matte blush like Benefit's Dandelion, I'll add this on top to add more of a glow. I've had this for AGES and use it so often and have barely made any sort of dent in it somehow so clearly worth the money! 

Sadly a limited edition product but regardless still damn beautiful, is the Colourpop Highlighter 'Churro'. I remember when this came out everyone absolutely freaked and it was sold out for AGES. I was so excited to get my hands on it that I didn't really think of the shade...on the levels of Peach it's definitely steering more towards copper and bronze, but it does have this peach undertone to it that makes it perfect for the Summer. As you can imagine this highlighter is WAY too dark for my skin tone so instead I actually use this as an eyeshadow and it's perfect for a golden peach night-time look when on the hols. 

I don't actually own many peach eyeshadows mainly because they do not suit me at all. The Too Faced Peach Palette has been on my radar for a while but sadly I just don't think peach mattes will work on my skintone. Regardless I do have one product, and yet again, annoyingly Colourpop has discontinued it! The Colourpop Pressed Eyeshadow 'Take It Slow' is one of my most used eyeshadows for day-to-day. I love champagne shimmers but sometimes I don't like them too white-cast or golden and ones which have more of a peachy or pink undertone really suit as they are less blinding. You cannot fault the formula of these eyeshadows at all, so pigmented and they last all day on the lids, much needed in the Summer heat! 

Am obviously always looking to grow my peach collection so let me know in the comments below some of your favourite peach products!

  4. That eyeshadow looks so stunning! At first it doesn't look like much but I know what you mean, it has a perfect peach undertone to make it just that bit different from all the other champagne shades. Too bad it's sold out!
