Matte Peach Makeup for Spring

Sweet  Matte Peach Makeup for Spring & Summer. I wanted to do a simple, fresh and clean look that can be worn to any occasion, such as work events, dinners, first dates or just a day out with friends.

Products Used:
Kinarse Eye Cream
Bobbi Brown Peach Corrector
Mac's Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette
Makeup Forever Gel Liner
Urban Decay Naked Foundation-4.0
L.A Girl HD Concealers in Warm Honey & Yellow Corrector
Makeup Forever HD Powder
Tarte Blush in Blissful
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit
NYX lip liner in Natural
Mac Cosmetics lipstick in Cosmo
NARS lipgloss in Turkish delight

Makeup Favs for this look:

Bobbi Brown Peach Corrector-My holy grail for dark circles. Our basic color wheel rules is that orange/peach will cancel out any blue/green shades making this creamy peach corrector perfect for dark areas under the eyes. Using my finger, I gently pat the product mostly around the inner corners and blend out around the eye.

LA Girl PRO HD Concealers-For $3.00 or less, these easy to use concealer tubes are perfect for highlighting and contouring. I apply the darker shade in the contour zones before my foundation to give me a more subtle, natural look. For a more distinct look, feel free to contour over your foundation. I then highlighted over the Bobbi Brown to diminish any dark circles/ under eye issues even more.


Tarte Blush in Blissfull-This is a beautiful matte shade of coral that looks great on deeper skintones. I would prefer a blush more pigmented as I found myself applying several layers of it, however the color is beautiful and leaves a really nice color to the face.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow-You can get this highlighter palette in "Gleam" or "That Glow." Gleam has more cool toned pinks while That Glow is more gold, more preferable for darker skin tones. Using a mix of bubbly and stardust, I applied this on the cheek bones, down the nose, above the lips and chin. This hightlighter kit is one of my favorites, I would put it on my list of top 10 highlighters and it can be used daily.

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Cosmo-My favorite brown toned nude for every day. I love this lipstick because it add just enough color to give life to your face, but natural enough for every day or with an extreme smokey eye 

NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight-A pink favorite that applies smoothly over any color adding shine without stickyness and tones down any darker lip color. This on top of Cosmo creates a beautiful juicy peach color

Golden Smokey Eyes for Indian Attire-GRWM

Happy January! I recently received the Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette which is absolutely amazing. The colors are long lasting, highly pigmented and there's a great variety of matte and shimmer colors.
