How to Pull Peach Fuzz Into Your Beauty Routine

The Peach Fuzz Palette: Soft, Warm, and Timeless

According to color researchers, 2024’s color of the year is more than just trendy; it symbolizes a balance between the youthful and the timeless. However, as with any orange shade, a thoughtful approach is important when bringing it into your home décor, wardrobe, and beauty routine.

Megan says this color is versatile across various skin tones. Peachy coral tones have a quality that complements both the fairest and darkest complexions. It’s a perfect choice for a more subdued and settling aesthetic.

Megan guides us through a step-by-step application of the color of the year in our makeup routine:

  • Cheeks: A subtle peach blush, such as the SheGlam liquid blush in “Float On,” adds a light and surface-level flush to the cheeks. Megan assures us that the key is to maintain an orange undertone for the authentic Peach Fuzz effect.
  • Eyes: Peach Fuzz eyeshadow, preferably in a matte finish, is perfect for an all-over lid application. Megan encourages us to treat peach as a neutral, allowing it to pair effortlessly with other colors like brown, gray, or mauve.
  • Lips: To avoid a washed-out look, Megan recommends choosing a peachy lip shade with depth. She introduces a NARS balm, providing a sheer yet pigmented finish for a balmy feel with a punch of color.
  • Nails: Megan predicts that Peach Fuzz will make an appearance in spring manicures and pedicures.

Megan says you can wear these elements together for a monochromatic look, or mixing Peach Fuzz with other complementary tones. The key is to find the perfect balance that aligns with your personal style.
