Monochromatic peach makeup made its debut on the AW17 catwalks, and was without a doubt one of the biggest makeup trends to come out of 2017. Yet, I don’t see why monochromatic makeup shouldn’t be your 2018 beauty best friend. Monochrome often gets confused with a black and white colour scheme but the basis of monochrome is to use a single colour in varying shades. Peach is potentially one of the easiest ways to test the waters of monochromatic makeup. The varying shades of peach are most versatile to use on the eyes, cheeks and lips and if you find your most flattering shade of peach, you can use one product for a multitude of purposes. So here’s some peach inspiration to get your imagination running wild and streamline your summer makeup routine…
Fluro-peach inner corners
Mono tonal lids, cheeks and lips
Peach poppin’ lips and cheeks
Graphic, glossy peach lids
Glossy muted peach lids with copper glitter
My most favourite way to use the same shade is to take a peachy blush across the cheeks and up onto the temples and then sweep across the eyelids for a natural, dusty look. Or, if you want to amp up the heat, use your peach blush as the transition colour in your smoky eye. If you’re not so much a fan of powder products and more of a fan of a balmy look, try using a sheeny lipstick across the whole face.
My favourite product to achieve this balmy, healthy and very low maintenance look, is the SOAP AND GLORY PEACH POUT COMPLETELY BALMY LIPSTICK. The texture of these lipsticks is that of lip balm rather than a classic lipstick so are perfectly versatile to use across the face. I particularly love using these type of formulas across the eyelids as a nod to the glossy lid trend from earlier this year and when a balm is used across the cheekbones, it creates a beautiful ‘glow-from-within’ without any of the shimmer. Peach Pout comes in three beautiful shades to compliment any skin tone and suite any time of day.
Peach Pout comes in three different tones Peach for the Sky, Peach Ball and Freedom of Peach (left to right) and each are scented like sweet peach to make you pout juicy and sweet! All makeup is currently 3 for 2 at Boots and boots.com so why not treat yourself and pick up all three shades?
