How To Wear Peach Blush - Into The Gloss

How To Wear Peach Blush

1

There’s a lot of real estate on your cheeks, and you've probably noticed that the shades meant for the hollows have no business on the apples. The success of 'perfect' cheekbones or that flush that feigns coyness very much relies on placement. But since the system failed us by not making blush application part of the standard junior-high curriculum, we asked makeup artist Suzy Gerstein to help us make a hard-and-fast guide to where to put what colors—and why. Today we're talking peach.

The Effect: Pale peach is a great face-warmer. It picks up the golden undertones of a lot of skin tones, so it’s a great highlighter and brightener, especially if you have warm undertones and thus pale pink is too cool for your face.

The Placement: You can apply it the same way you would a pale pink, and you can also wear it as an eye shadow—use a matte color above the crease and below the brow. You can even dust a peach highlighter in the inner-corner of your eyes to cancel out dark circles.

The Products: I like Nars Sex Appeal and Ilia Beauty I Put a Spell on You.
