Different Ways to Incorporate Peach Hues in Your Makeup Routine


Ready to fully embrace Peach Fuzz as the Pantone Color of the Year? Enter this brand new year in beauty by incorporating more of this makeup hue in your everyday glam

Considering the Cerulean that welcomed the turn of the century to the Viva Magenta that rocked 2023, it’s safe to say that the Pantone Color Institute has a significant influence on beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. Now, the color experts determined that 2024 is the year of the Peach Fuzz, a velvety peach tone that Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman describes as “radiant with warmth and modern elegance.”

Peach shades have long been a staple in the beauty industry, but now is the time to wholeheartedly embrace the youthful exuberance that Peach Fuzz denotes. And the best part about is that it’s a universally flattering hue and is versatile in application. There’s truly no limit to where you can use peachy tones in your glam, but we’re here to give you that extra creative push you need to go in the right direction.

Peachy keen lips

Applying a peach lippy is the easiest way to adapt the trending color to your routine, and with such a wide market, you have plenty of products at your fingertips. Considering the mattifying formulas at MAC Cosmetics and the nourishing lip oils in Dior, you also have a wealth of types and textures to choose from to suit your tastes.

A peach flush

Peach shades are also a perfect match for the apples of your cheeks. When choosing a product, don’t forget that the shade, formula, and placement matter. Powder formulas are more for the traditional application to create fuller cheeks, while for a lifted effect, it’s best to use a liquid or cream blush in a shade that’s closer to your complexion. Likewise, use sheer and creamy products in warmer hues to create the sun-kissed effect. For just that, you can turn to Chanel’s Water-fresh blush in light peach for the desired natural-looking flushed effect.

Bursts of color

For warm bursts of color to make your eyes pop, peach shades can do the trick. For something a little subtle, you can use a shimmery peach in the inner corner of your eyes to brighten the area or use that in the center of your lids to open up your eyes. For something a little bolder, you can use a highly pigmented peach eyeshadow all over your lids and even add a touch of gloss over it for a glassy finish. If that’s not to your liking, you can create a halo eye makeup look by using darker eyeshadow in the inner and outer corners of your eyes. To that end, look no further than Pat McGrath Labs’ Mothership XI: Sunlit Seduction or their Divine Blush: Legendary Glow Cheek & Eye Duo in Peach Lotus.

A full face of Peach Fuzz  

Of course, it doesn’t end there. You can go out of your comfort zone using peach-colored eyeliner, such as Colourette Cosmetics’ brand-new Colourflick Graphic Eyeliner in Pumpkin. With it, you can create bold shapes or subtly add dimension by lining the bottom of your eye. A peach color corrector is also a great shade to use for those with light to medium skin tones as it can cancel out dark circles and persistent dark spots.

There’s nothing but endless potential for Peach Fuzz’s application when it comes to makeup, so we look forward to seeing more of it in the coming months.
