Unless you have been living in a cave all summer, you will be aware of the huge coral trend that is around lately in clothing, accessories and even cosmetics. Luckily, the peachier hues are readily available and much easier to work with than bright orange (Read: Coral).
Today I thought I would hop on the bandwagon and create a daytime peachy fotd!
MAC Studio Fix Fluid NW35 / MAC MSF Natural 'Medium Dark' / MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NW30 / UD Naked Palette: 'Virgin' (inner corner & highlight), 'Toasted' (lid) & 'Buck' (crease) / Maybelline 'One by One' mascara / NARS Laguna bronzer / NARS 'Gilda' blush / Benefit '10' highlight / Barry M Gloss 'Coral - 11'

A closeup of my eye make up...
Excuse the random silver lash on my left eye, I can only imagine I have a little lash glue stuck there that the eye shadow has attached itself to! I decided to go for a shimmery wash of colour as my blush is matte. I think it looks nice and summery too! 'Toasted' is a neglected shade in my Naked Palette, I really must use it more.

Now for the peachy ingredients...

NARS 'Gilda has been a neglected blush in my collection. When I got it I thought it was a scary colour, far too peach for me! However when it is applied, it gives the prettiest peachy pink flush.

In comparison to Benefits 'Coralista', you can see that it is much pinkier.

Finally, a closeup of the gloss I used - Barry M's 'Coral' (11). I didn't use a lipstick but as my lips are quite pigmented as it is, it came to quite a nice finish.

How have you been incorporating peach into your make-up?



  1. Lovely FOTD! The peachy hues really suit your skin tone x

  2. oh girl i love these shades!

    actually, toasted is one of my fav UD products! i have it not only in the naked palette, but also individual just incase i run out!!! i also love that lip gloss you have! hope you're doing well and hope you had a great weekend!

  3. That blush is pretty! I am going to have to go check it out and see how it looks on me.


  4. I love your FOTD, lovely shades!

  5. This is just gorgeous! :) xxx

  6. I have the Barry M gloss and I really like it aswell :) x

  7. I bought the peach shade of the collection 2000 cream puff and I love it as it is a dark peach so suits my skin tone quite well.
    Coral isn't a colour that tends to suit all, love this make up look on you though! Coral definately needs a tan!

  8. This is such a lovely look!! You are gorgeous! :]

  9. I love this look, you look great with it! I love the peachy tones too. I made a coral romper just last week! I wanted to do coral makeup but then I was like oh wait overload on the coral. so i just went without that day. :) love your blog!
