4 reasons why you should try the peach eyeshadow trend
Peach-coloured eyeshadow is undeniably one of the biggest trends in makeup right now. And you need to try it!

From Kylie Jenner’s Royal Peach palette to Too Faced’s Sweet Peach collection, there are peachy makeup pieces popping up left, right and centre.
Here at finder.com.au we couldn’t be bigger fans of this trend. The colour is a refreshing break from heavier colours like brown, burgundy and black. Plus it’s flattering on all skin tones – peach brings out the warm colours in lighter skin and it gives the appearance of a warm, dewy flush to dark skin.
If you’re yet to give this trend a go or are worried that the traditionally-blush shades aren’t meant for your lids, here are four reasons why you really should give this one a try.
Peach tones make you feel like summer is back
Missing the warm weather already? A peachy eyeshadow will make you feel like summer is here to stay – it's an inherently summery colour. The fresh and bright colour calls out the warm and bronzed tones in your skin. Finish your look with a hint of bronzer and a dash of peachy gloss and it will seem like you’ve come fresh from a day at the beach.
It works as a neutral, but with a twist
If you like to play around with your look and try things like cut creases, smoky eyes or eye contouring, then peach eyeshadow is perfect for you! Peach tones blend well with browns, golds, burgundies and even some blue tones. It’s a great base shade for layering other shadows over the top. Think of it as a neutral or base shade with a little more warmth than classics like MAC Brule.
It’s a refreshing break from black or brown hues
If you’re one of those people who love a rich brown or black eye colour, why not take a break and give peach a go? With peach shadows, it’s still evident that you’re wearing makeup but it’s lighter and fresher. It’s a great colour to lift your look rather than weighing your makeup down with darker shades.
It brings out the colours and highlights in all eye colours
Peach is on the red/orange end of the colour wheel so it contrasts the most with blue and green. If you already have blue or green eyes, peach is a sure-fire way to make them really pop. If you’ve got hazel eyes, it will bring out the green in them. And if you’ve got brown eyes, it will highlight any flecks of colour or any blue or green undertones. Peachy tones are stunning with every eye colour.
