Summer Essentials #7: Peach Beauty

Peach makeup looks fresh and dewy for the summer, and I keep noticing pretty girls with peach blush, lipstick and toes. Toby and I stopped by the NARS store the other day, and I tried on a peach lipstick. Their Barbarella color was lovely and natural, and I’ve worn it almost everyday since! (I’d highly recommend it if you’re looking for a flattering neutral.) Here are six peachy cosmetics to give you that sun-kissed glow…

1. Peach nectar lip gloss, 2. Barbarella lipstick, 3. Peach eyeshadow, 4. Nectar shimmer brick, 5. A Crewed Interest nail polish, 6. Peach blush.

    “Everyday” is an adjective. It does not take the place of the noun phrase “every” (adjective) + “day” (noun), which is what you mean when you mistakenly use the adjective “everyday” in your posts. Please, as an intelligent, well-respected blogger, take note of this mistake that has been repeatedly pointed out to you. Grammatical mistakes may not bother some, but why not take a second to learn the distinction and make the correction?

  3. someone told me that peach is the only color that flatters every skin tone. i believe it.

    i want that lipstick! :)

  4. All of these are so pretty!

  5. I’d also suggest Benefit’s “Nice Melons” eye shadow – it’s a lovely peachy pink that I just love.

  6. I agree that peach or coral are so refreshing for summer. I recommend Chanel’s lipstick Liberte and lipgloss called Coral Love. They are light too. I love Nars cosmetics too.

  7. im loving peach for summer, as well! i think im going to have to get the lipstick and peach blush posted here…i need a little make-up “facelift” :)


  8. Oh peach is so much fun during summer! thanks for sharing. I guess i have to get the essie polish :)

  9. I love all things peach!

  10. I LOVE all of these. As a huge fan of neutrals, peach feels to me like an almost-neutral, just barely bright enough to add some pretty. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Have A Crewed Interest on my nails and Barbarella in my make up bag :) Thanks for sharing these peachy keen cosmetics!

  12. i need to get on this lipstick thing…i still haven’t purchased the red i have been looking at!

  13. You should look at the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in Rendezvous. It is gorgeous and feels so good on.

  14. I love this color. It is so girly and perfect for summer. Here it’s winter so I’m into the darker shades of berry and dark brown nudes. I can’t wait for summer because I’m going peach. x Elizabeth from the dotdot blog.

  15. I just got this nail polish put on at the nail place yesterday. <3 it!

    I think my coloring is similar to yours, so I have to check these out.

  17. I adore peach cosmetics. This is the first peach nail polish I have seen though!

  18. Wearing peach today, l love it! I just recently bought Alima Pure eyeshadow in Mohair, and its such a pretty peach shade for the eyes. They also have some great peachy blushes.

  19. Maybelline’s Baby Lips in peach is a great option too. Sheer, pretty, and smells like peaches!

  20. These are all so fresh and pretty! I’ll have to see about grabbing something peachy the next time I’m at the drug store!

    These are so pretty! I love the nail polish and the shimmer brick. :) I wonder how peach colors will fare on medium toned skin…

  23. Love this look. I currently have “A Crewed Interest” on my toes! :)

  24. I seriously just got home from running errands and randomly bought some discounted peach old lady lipstick. It’s amazing!

  25. Thanks for the ideas! I absolutely can’t go pink… only peach works for my coloring. I’m always looking for something natural and not too orange-y.

  26. yep, needing to add peach to my make-up essentials. right now!!!!

  27. i love peach as an alternative to traditional pink-still pretty but with a little… flavor.

  28. I have really been wanting to try Nars makeup in general. Is the Barbarella color more nude than peach? I can’t tell on my computer screen (it has steered me wrong far too many times in the past).

  29. So pretty…wondering how it would look with my red hair.

  30. Also Benefit’s Cha cha Tint and Coralista, amazing and natural looking peach blushes. Also for a birghter peachy coral lip I love Nars Niagra. Just in case you needed more stuff to covet…

  31. Love the different options presented (especially the ones for the lips!) (Jo, if u have a minute and want to check my latest post -it’s based/inspired on one of yours…) XOXO

  32. i love the idea of looking dewy and fresh…something so romantic and sexy about it.

  33. A Crewed Interest is my absolute favorite nail polish color! (I’m on my second bottle)
