Summer Peach Favourites

When I think of Summer, my mind always wanders to the peach and coral hues of my makeup collection. Blushers and lipsticks are the perfect way to get these shades into my routine with ease, so here are a handful of my top picks. 

The Hourglass Strobe Lighting Palette -or more specifically the shade Incandescent Eletra (the shade on the left)- is one of my current favourites as, although it's pigmented, it still looks natural upon the skin, perks up the cheeks and adds a subtle glow at the same time. 

Although the Tarte True Love Amazonian Clay Blush is a pink at first glance, it' has coral undertones so adds a peachy hue to the cheeks when applied. It's matte, long wearing and very suitable for a Summer makeup look.

When I first saw swatches of the Glossier Dusk Cloud Paint online, in some lights it looked like a true brown whereas in other photographs it looked like a soft mauve, but once I got my hands on it, I would label as more of a rosy pink/brown with undertones of peach running through it. Although it's not a Beam sort of a coral which is intense, this still has a slight pay off of peach (The Beauty Look Book's swatch of it is pretty spot on). The almost-mousse cream formula makes this super easy to wear with or without foundation, as it blends effortlessly into the skin and there's never a harsh line in sight. 

Every year, I always bring the Nars Lodhi Lip Pencil out once the weather starts to get warmer; it looks great paired with tanned skin and the formula makes it super easy to apply due to it's creaminess. 

If you're looking for a bright coral then look no further, as the Clarins Joli Rouge Bright Coral* has been a long serving favourite of mine come Summer. It's vivid, it's pigmented, but it's still comfortable to wear on a day to day basis. If you want something a little more toned down that still adds a bit of colour then the Fresh Coral Sugar Lip Treatment is a great alternative. 

Another peachy favourite of mine is the Clinique Melon Pop Lip Colour, a nourishing pick that has been in my collection for several Summers now. If you're new to coral lipsticks then this is a great one to begin with as it can easily be worn every day with ease.
