How to Create a Trendy Peach Statement Eye How to Create a Trendy Peach Statement Eye How to Create a Trendy Peach Statement Eye

Feeling peachy keen for 2017’s favorite universally flattering beauty trend? What started as the must-have peach hair trend has quickly turned into spring’s hottest eye shadow hue, too! From daytime blended smoky eyes to nighttime cut creases, peach eye shadow is about to become your go-to.

All of the tones of this fresh, juicy fruit—from the pale coral of the perfectly ripe delight, to the neutral flesh tones of the inside, to the purple hue of being over-ripe, to the green of the leaf and brown of the stem—are being embraced so that nothing is overlooked when it comes to this mouth-watering, eye-catching look. Below, we share a few easy ways to get in on the peach eye shadow trend—so, grab your makeup bag and follow along to look sweet as a peach in no time!

How to Do a Peach Smoky Eye

Who said smoky eyes had to be dark and mysterious? With various shades of peach, you’ll be able to achieve the same depth and definition for a look that can easily translate from desk to drinks.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Start with primer. The key to any solid statement eye is helping to ensure that it stays put for whatever the day has in store. The best way to do that? Using a long-lasting eye primer to help give something for your shadow to adhere to. With just a dab of primer, you can help prevent your makeup from transferring.

Step 2: Pick your peaches. To get this look, you’ll want one light peach shade and one slightly darker. Texture and vibrancy is totally up to you. You can go with super bright peach shades for a more fluorescent look, or you can veer towards more neutral shades, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Boudoir Charme.

Step 3: Use your lighter peach shade first. Using an eye shadow brush, swipe a touch of the lighter peach eye shadow across your upper lid.

Step 4: Add depth with the darker shade. Next, use an angled shadow brush to blend the darker peach color into your crease and up towards your brow bone.

Step 5: Highlight! To finish, use a near-white matte or shimmering eye shadow to highlight just under the tail of your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye. Voila—perfectly peach and ready for whatever the day has in store!

How to Do a Peach Cut Crease

Another big trend in 2017 is the ever-gorgeous cut crease. Requiring a bit more skill and precision, a cut crease is all about creating a noticeable, ultra-sleek line of demarcation between your lid and your crease. Pair that with peach shadows and you better believe you have a match made in beauty heaven!

Step 1: Start with a neutral peach shade.Using a fluffy eye shadow brush, coat your upper lid with a neutral peach shade, like the one in the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quad in Shopping Spree.

Step 2: Create your cut crease. Using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Pure Purple, sketch a sideways V-shape from the outer corner of your eye towards the middle of your crease. Be sure that the line is thicker towards the outer corner and thinner on your crease.

Step 3: Blend it out. Using a blending eye shadow brush, blend the eyeliner out toward the outer corner of your eye without disrupting the sharp bottom edge of your cut crease.

Step 4: Add some more definition. On top of your cut crease, add a touch of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Smoldering Plum for just enough sparkle and depth.

Step 5: Highlight! To finish your statement eye shadow look, use a light shimmering eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow in Paris Beach. Just like that, your eye shadow looks as ripe as a peach!

How to Use Peach Eye Shadow in a Jiffy

Don’t feel skilled enough to recreate a peach smoky eye or cut crease? Go for a monochromatic look instead! With just a swipe of peach eye shadow on your upper lid blended up towards your brow bone, and a smidge just below your bottom lid, you’ll only need a coat or two of black or blue mascara (try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt Blue) to look positively peachy and totally on trend!
