5 Summery Peachy-Pink Eyeshadows

This is one of my favorite colors to wear! As someone with a warmer undertone, this type of color is flattering–it brightens, warms up, and looks (fairly) natural on. I can do a quick sweep on the lid, or I can incorporate it with other shades like golds, oranges, reds, and purples.

  1. Inglot #407 — fiery peachy-pink
  2. Make Up For Ever #153 — gold-shimmered peach-pink
  3. Lancome Kitten Heel — yellow-toned pink with peach shimmer
  4. MAC Expensive Pink — darkened warm pink with gold shimmer
  5. Urban Decay Scratch — soft peach-pink

  2. Inglot #330 — matte pastel peach-orange
