Since my time in LA I had noticed the trees on my street have bloomed the most beautiful flowers. It inspired me to purchase this eye palette by Too Faced, and have been using it everyday since. Peach tones on the skin are so flattering to everyone! It can make any age group look youthful and fresh, and since it’s light in colour its not totally scary to apply. Perfect if you’re not into colour but want to try spice things up.

After a few years in the business and my share of eavesdropping from the makeup chair I have learnt a thing or two. That’s not to say I’m an expert in the field, but I hope I can share the tips I have learnt from working with the best!
1. The fairer you are, head towards softer colours; think baby pinks and cool undertones. The darker you are, experiment with light oranges and corals.
2. Peach tones in combination with gold are a match made in heaven. In my experience, sweeping a gold based eyeshadow over a peach eye make the eyes look brighter and are a stunning day look.
3. The same goes for the skin. Peachy blush is my absolute favourite paired with a gold based highlighter. This works really well with my skin tone and deeper skin also, but if you’re more pale opt for a pearl highlight instead.
4. Watch that you don’t look like you have an eye infection. To avoid this, don’t run the same peach under your lower lash line. Stick to rich browns for this and save the peach for the eye lid.
The way I achieved this day look was to simply sweep the peach tones over my entire eyelid. I added a little shimmer to the centre and a gold highlight to my inner corner. For the night, work deeper orange colours in to the crease.
THE PRODUCT BREAKDOWN:
Josie Marian Highlight Oil + Mac Strobe Cream for a dreamy glow.
Bare Minerals powder foundation brushed all over the skin. Can not recommend this foundation enough if you have slightly oily skin like myself but still want to achieve a dewy look! It combats the issue really well but isn’t too heavy.
For any problem areas and a little under the eye I used Nars Soft Matte concealer blended with my fingers.
On the cheeks, the 3 in 1 Hourglass cream palette. I love working with creams for a natural look. I blended these three products out using a damp beauty blender.
And the hero! The Too Faced Sweet Peach palette on the eyes.
I finished off with tight lining my lash line to give the appearance of darker lashes, and applied Dior Mascara. (Another cult favourite in my makeup bag right now!)
