Spring makeup trends utilize bright pops of color to brighten the complexion with peach being the most versatile shade for all skin tones. Not only is the color of peach versatile with regard to skin tone, it is also a shade of color that works well on all areas of the face. Adapting a peach monochromatic makeup look will not only warm up your skin tone in a flattering and natural way but also speed up total makeup application time.
Yesterday I decided to give the peach monochromatic makeup look a try. Other than my CC Cream (Mirabella’s of course!), I only used color cosmetics that were in the coral/peach family. I was surprised how quickly and easily this look came together, taking only 10 minutes for the entire face. That’s a record for me! Notice how much the peach color really accentuates the color of my eyes. Of all colors in the spectrum, oranges, peaches and corals are the most versatile making blue eyes look bluer, green eyes look greener and hazel/brown eye look lighter and brighter.
How to recreate Kelly’s peach monochromatic makeup look
- Neutralize all discoloration on the face using your choice of complexion products. I used Mirabella CC Cream and a new primer I am testing out from Revive, more to come on that in another blog post!
- If desired, lightly fill in your brows then define your lips using OCC color cosmetic pencil in Grandma. I also lightly fill in the entire lip with this pencil to create a nice base of coral lip color with longer wear time. I like to create a lot of dimension with lip color so I used several products to create the overall peach colored lip. After filling in my lips with Grandma, I applied a lighter peach shade, from Jane Iredale’s collection of Play-on lip crayons, Yummy, then topped that with a single stroke of color using Hynt Beauty’s Libre lip gloss in pearly rose pink.
- Now, on to the eyes. Using your finger, apply Vivid Visionary Eyeshadow from Mirabella Beauty to the entire lid. Instead of sweeping your fingers across your lids during application, use a light “patting” or stippling motion to avoid shadow fallout and quickly deepen pigment to your desired intensity. Next, I applied Rose Gold pressed eyeshadow from Jane Iredale to the inner half of the lid.
- To get a natural looking flush of color in the cheeks I applied Youngblood Luminous Creme blush in Tropical Glow to the apples of my cheeks then hit the highpoints of the cheeks with Glowing Coral Brilliant Mineral Highlighter from Mirabella Beauty.
So what do you think? Will you give the peach monochromatic spring makeup trend a try? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts!
