Before buying the peach tones brands have launched, I looked through my collection and found some forgotten great makeup.
During a sale, I picked up some peach tones ColourPop Super Shock matte shadows. To give more of a glow, I pulled out some Makeup Geek Duochrome shadows that were sitting in a forgotten magnetic palette.
I used Mai Tai all over the lid with I’m Peachless in the center for a soft spotlight effect.
For the messy brow, I used the Benefit Goof Proof pencil in shade 6 to fill them in a bit and then used the Gimme Brow, brushing the hairs in upward strokes and then using a brow brush to lay down the hairs that seemed too out of place.
ColourPop also recently launched their monochromatic collections. I really liked the swatches of Jacquard online. In person, it’s much more of a bright coral. It was much brighter than what I like to wear. So to tone it down, I laid down a base of Chi Lippie Stix, which is a neutral light brown pencil. Then, I used a lip brush to apply and mix in Jacquard. Boom. The muted coral I was looking for!
I really loved how this turned out and will probably be playing a lot with peach tones through Spring.
Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of warmer tones paired with nude lips. That makes for great, easy every day looks but I wanted to venture into my cooler toned shadows and pops of color.
I decided to go for pink toned shadows from the Lorac Pro palette blended with Bitten from Makeup Geek to bring in subtle red tones (yes, red compliments cool pinks beautifully). I also did a natural eyeliner look right against the top lashline and the outer corner of the bottom lashline.
All week, I’ve been sporting nudes and browns on the lips. Time for a pop of color.
Voila! Daytime friendly pinky/red eye look.
