Katrina Says: Face It – Let’s Get Peachy This Year!

By Beauty Editor Katrina Hess

Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2024 is “Peach Fuzz” – a color they say “captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It’s a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul.”

For some, peach might seem unappealing or boring for clothes, wall coverings, and most everything else.

Remember the scene in the movie Monster-in-Law when Jane Fonda throws her peach bridesmaid dress out the window?!?  


But actually, peach is one of the most versatile colors in the makeup world. Peach…

    • Looks good on all skin tones
    • Offsets purple undertones, such as dark under-eye circles
    • Gives warmth to your skin
    • Works as a base eyeshadow, or to wear alone to brighten your eyes and cover redness and purple tones on your eyelids
    • Is a great color for blush, because it warms your skin
    • In light tones, is a perfect new nude for lips that looks great with a clear, shiny lip gloss
    • In darker tones, is great for giving you a pop of color
    • Looks great mixed with pinks. I often use peach and pink for the “no makeup” look for eyes, lips and cheeks
    • Works well with warm browns
    • Can be dramatic partnered with bold tones – hot pinks, reds and crimsons
    • Is a soft natural, healthy and innocent look that’s great for brides

So have fun with this beautiful color – send me photos of you looking pretty in peach!
