Babe, you’re a peach. And we’re not just talking about your sweet personality, but also the delicious colors you’ll be owning all of August. This has been known as National Peach Month for nearly four decades, when people are encouraged to “reach for a peach” and celebrate the juicy and fresh fruit while it’s at its best. But as much as we love peach in our desserts and smoothies, we like it even better on our faces in the form of beautiful peach makeup products. This hue looks good on everybody, and we mean it. It adds warmth and radiance to every skin tone, enhancing your best features while ensuring that you still look natural. Seriously, peach makeup is the definition of “your look, just better.” And this shade can be found in the form of eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, and many other makeup products that make you feel super sweet. Here are a few of our peach makeup favorites to get you through National Peach Month:
You can’t talk about peach makeup products without Too Faced. You know, the brand that makes your favorite peach-themed highlighter, blush, and lip colors inspired by the fuzzy fruit. But none of those would have been possible without one of the brand’s most popular makeup products - the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. A “new take on neutrals,” this palette features corals, bronzes, purples, and pink makeup that you can layer on your lids for a sweet treat. Blend browns like Puree and Summer Yum into your crease as a transition shade, and pack shimmers like Bellini and Candied Peach into the center of your lid… or keep it matte with favorites like White Peach or Peaches ‘N Cream. And then there’s the fact that each of the 18 shades in this makeup product smells like peaches, which is just an added bonus in a practically perfect (and peachy!) palette.
We love the feeling of peach on our lips, and we’re not just talking about the fruit. Put a sweet twist on classic pink makeup with the Lust Lip Gloss in Aphrodisiac, a mid-tone peach that adds just the right amount of shimmer and enhances your pout with ease. This peach makeup is pretty close to the natural color of your lips, and is meant to bring out your best features and enhance your natural beauty with every swipe. How do you know that Lust Lip Gloss is a true National Peach Month essential? 96% of our community voted this makeup product as not sticky, while 92% say it’s mega-pigmented and will give your lips the love they deserve all through August, and beyond.
Monochrome is a major mood, and we’re definitely going to miss seeing this lewk on the runways in 2020. Seriously, it’s a supermodel favorite. But even while staying inside, you can still celebrate National Peach Month with The Multiple by NARS. This multipurpose makeup stick lets you add beautiful and blendable color to your eyes, lips, and cheeks, giving you an impeccable monochromatic makeup effect in just a few minutes. The Multiple is available in ten captivating colors, but the one you need to look simply peachy is Orgasm. This sheer, pink makeup shade with a golden shimmer is exactly what peach makeup is all about - adding warmth and radiance to your face with a look that’s extremely simple (come on, you only need one makeup product!), but still makes you look like you’re ready for a front row seat at New York Fashion Week. After you’re finished with Orgasm, try the shades Copacabana and Luxor for more pink makeup that’s both edgy and exquisite.
Nobody does peach makeup like Too Faced, and we’re back with more juicy makeup products from their Sweet Peach collection. Papa Don’t Peach isn’t just any blush, it’s the secret to your most luminous skin - creating a warm spring or summer glow (no matter the season!) to make you look simply radiant. Not only does it look effortlessly peachy on all skin types and tones, it lasts for hours while staying pretty and pigmented on your face. How pigmented, exactly? 95% of our community agrees that pigmentation is a standout feature with this peach makeup product, and we can’t forget about the creaminess, lack of fallout, and sweet peach scent that will keep you feeling ripe and radiant all day.
“I usually try to use Milani (drugstore) blushes, but I decided to give this a try since I love most of Clinique’s products. This blush is smooth, pigmented and lasts all day. They have beautiful shades as well, definitely recommend.” Don’t get us wrong, we’re all about Milani and their low cost, high quality products… but your skin will feel instantly pretty and peachy with this classic by Clinique. If the intricate, flowery design of Cheek Pop Blush didn’t already catch your eye, you’ll definitely be drawn in by buildable, blendable color. 100% of users say it’s extremely long lasting and smooth, while 96% love the sheer pigmentation that gives your face a subtle flush of pink makeup. Or in this case, peach makeup! Peach Pop is a warm-toned pink and coral hue that glides effortlessly onto your skin, and flatters all skin tones to help your face look instantly bright. Layer it on your cheeks for your virtual happy hour or Zoom call to celebrate National Peach Month in style.
Kylie called, and she wants you to wear peach makeup from The Peach Extended Palette all through August. The beauty guru is a pro at creating subtle and glamorous eyeshadow looks that make her brown eyes pop, and you can do the same with these 12 matte and shimmer shades. Layer pink makeup and coral hues for a variety of pretty eye effects, blending with ease as these pigmented and buildable shades create peach makeup looks that make you want to swing into spring. Or summer. Or fall. Or even winter. The options are endless, and we’re not kidding when we say that peach works for every season.
Get yourself a lipstick that can do both. And by “both,” we mean provide a beautiful burst of color along with incredible comfort… leaving your lips feeling soft and smooth. Like every makeup product by Laura Mercier, the Paint Wash Liquid Lip Color feels luxurious on your skin and delivers top precision and pigmentation. It comes in many gorgeous shades, but our personal favorite Golden Peach. Enhance the color of your lips and feel fresh for hours with this naturally beautiful color, a must-have for National Peach Month and any “everyday makeup look” enthusiast.
There’s normal lip balm, and then there’s this lip balm by Too Faced. If you’ve made it this far down the list, you know that the brand has a wide selection of peachy makeup for eyes, lips, and cheeks that helps you look pretty and peachy all day, every day. And Peach Mega Moisture Lip Balm is no exception. Moisturize your pout with a long-lasting, lightweight formula that leaves your lips feeling smooth… and smelling like peaches, of course. Wear it alone for a subtle shine that keeps your pout feeling fresh, or underneath one of our favorite Too Faced liquid lipsticks to guarantee that you’re living the dream. Oops, we mean peaches and cream.
What’s better than pink makeup? Pink-peach makeup. The best part about peach is that it’s a universal shade that works with all skin tones, as it contains pink, orange, and gold (all the undertone colors!) to create that natural, “lit from within” glow that you somehow can’t get from a basic pink. Look no further than Hot Mama Blush, a versatile makeup product that can be used on your eyes and cheeks for monochromatic beauty. It’s a more affordable version of The Multiple by NARS, though in powder form, and has top ratings in our community proving that Hot Mama Blush is a National Peach Month must-have. 96% of reviews say it’s extremely lightweight, while 99% say it lasts all day without you having to worry about streaks or fading.
To all who struggle with dark circles, this one’s for you. Anybody with chronic eye bags knows that a normal concealer isn’t always enough, and a little peach makeup goes a long way in helping you hide discoloration and make you look well-rested, even when you’re really not. Correction Concentrate Concealer by Pixi is a brightening peach shade that you blend out in your under eye area to neutralize darkness, and it even contains rosehip extract and Vitamins A and C to hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes. No eye bags, no settling into fine lines, and no more people asking if you’re “tired” at work… just a boost of beauty and brightness from this peach makeup essential.
Eyeshadow palettes are cool and all, but single shadows are extremely underrated. They’re more affordable, easy to throw in your clutch for a school day or night out, and give you the “simple wash of color” over the lid that’s a staple for the 15-minute makeup look. Prismatic Eyeshadow by NYX is one of our favorite makeup products ever, as it’s only $6 and blends effortlessly on your lids for a simple and striking eye look. During National Peach Month, you definitely need to try the shade Golden Peach… which is as dreamy and delicious as it sounds. Wear it alone for a pink makeup twist featuring hints of gold and orange, or mixed in with other shades for a unique peach makeup moment.
While we’re on the topic of food, National Peach Month is the time to treat yourself to a few dessert-themed makeup products. In addition to the peach lippies and blush that reminds you of cobbler and pie, you can also dip into this Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator by Laura Geller. 95% of our community says it’s super smooth, and glides with ease onto your cheekbones for a radiant glow. Especially if you use the iconic shade Peach Glow, a pink-orange hue that looks incredible of people of all skin types and undertones. Peach and gelato are a delicious combo, and we can’t wait for you to get a taste of peach makeup.
Makeup and skin care go together like peaches and summer, which is why we’re super excited to tell you about this peachy serum that you need in your life. Makeup can’t look its best without a beautiful canvas, and the Peach Sake Pore Serum adds ripe radiance to your face for a glowing complexion - with or without makeup. Wear it under your favorite foundation (like Born This Way by Too Faced!) for a luminous glow that even a filter can’t do, or just in your daily skin care routine to bring brightness and smoothness to your skin. This beauty product contains rice sake and peach extracts rich in Vitamins A and C, helping to reduce free radical damage, prevent acne, and even repair acne scars… showing that even the sweetest beauty products pack a lot of power.
