Peach is one of those versatile colors that looks good on literally everybody. Since it mimics a slight tan, it brings out warmth in your complexion without being too overpowering or loud, and it’s flirty, feminine and fun. It’s a particularly excellent shade for spring, when your skin might still be a bit pale from the winter doldrums and needing a little extra waking up.

Wearing peach on the eyes is a super romantic look, and perfect for pairing with springs floral dresses, flowy skirts, and pastel colors. One of my favorite palettes at the moment is Lancôme Color Design 5-Pan Palette in Peach Opulence which features the most gorgeous trio of bronzey peaches, plus a dusky rose and a soft, shimmery defining black. For a subtle but pretty eyeshadow look, apply the peaches and bronzes all over the lids and in the crease, dotting the black close to the lash line with an eyeliner brush. Don’t forget to blend well!

Peach is truly versatile, so it couldn’t be an easier shade to wear, especially in the spring: it’s a beautiful makeup color but looks spectacular in accessories—try a pretty peach scarf or if you’re really feeling daring, peach jeans! Here, a few of my favorite peach picks!
