Every December, the Pantone Color Institute unveils its Color of the Year. This sets the tone for design, fashion, beauty and makeup trends for 2024 worldwide. I have to admit, I never knew anything about “Colors of the Year” until last year and since then I have been mesmerized by watching designers incorporate a shade into their work.
Pantone Color of the Year (2024) – Peach Fuzz
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2024, Peach Fuzz, is an effervescent warm soft peach hue that brings a fresh and youthful energy to the world of fashion and beauty. This charming shade, reminiscent of the delicate fuzz on a peach offers a soft touch to warmth to your makeup palette.
I love the sentiment behind this color, it’s perfect as we walk into the New Year. Peach Fuzz is describes as bringing kindness into life. “Peach fuzz captures our desires to nurture ourselves and others. It’s a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body and soul” per the Pantone Institute website.
This shade is a refreshing change to the bold color of last year, that helped guide the bold Barbie trend. For us mature gals, this muted shade is gentle to our skin.
How do we bring this Beautiful Shade into our Makeup?
Since this is a warm shade it will complement a wide range of skin tones, adding a natural warmth that revitalizes the complexion. Unlike bolder, more saturated colors, “Peach Fuzz” is subtle enough to be worn in various ways, from a sheer wash of color to a more defined look.
Of course, it is going to work extremely well for us Spring and Autumn color palettes but even Summer and Winter girls will be able to pop a touch of this fresh shade into their makeup routine.
Tips for Wearing Peach Fuzz in 2024
- Complementary Colors: Pair “Peach Fuzz” with neutral tones like beiges, browns, and soft pinks for a harmonious makeup look. Continue reading for further color selections in shade.
- Focus on Hydration: Mature skin benefits from extra hydration. Use moisturizing makeup products to ensure a smooth application and a radiant finish. Focus on luminescent makeup primers such as Stila One Correct formula and then apply a light application of Seint IIID foundation with the Blend brush.
- Light-Reflecting Formulas: Opt for makeup with light-reflecting particles to give your skin a luminous, youthful glow. This is where cream makeup truly shines above the rest!
- Blend Well: Ensure that all products are well-blended for a seamless and natural look.
Incorporating Peach Fuzz into Your Makeup Routine
Seint Lip and Cheek Colors
Seint has quite a few lip and cheek colors in the shade range of Peach Fuzz.
- St. Tropez is the closest to the Color of the Year. It’s a satin that can be used on its own or paired with another deeper shade. St. Tropez is literally the iconic color of a beachy peach. It’s gorgeous on olive skin gals but definitely has that matte finish to it so I personally like to pair it with Desert Sunset.
- Desert Sunset is a sheer nude with a touch of peach in it.
- Madrid is my all-time favorite Seint lip and cheek shade. It’s a deeper peach-coral satin shade. This shade is creamy and pigmented.
- Sandstone is a deeper brick red that will complement those with a deeper skin tone very nicely. Sandstone is another creamy satin.
- Tropicana this was the first lip and cheek color I chose with Seint almost 4 years ago. This gloss is a soft sheer touch of peach.
- It’s well known that shades of peach are lovely on most eye colors but if you are a blue-eyed girl, these shades must have. Use “Peach Fuzz” as a soft, matte eyeshadow for a subtle pop of color, or pair it with complementary shades for a more dynamic look.
This color can also help to brighten the eyes when used in the inner corners or as a highlight under the brow bone.
- Havana, Leo and Valencia are different tones of matte peach shades. Seint eyeshadows are highly pigmented and go on buttery smooth.
- Crush, As You Wish, and Moscow are peachy shimmer shades.
With the soft ethereal feel of Peach Fuzz, it’s worth adding a little Georgia (powder) or Rose Gold (cream) illuminators to cast a soft glow to your skin. You may even want to consider doing a soft wash of cream illuminator all over the skin before applying your foundation.
Demi Color Correctors
We can’t forget the peachy salmon colors of many of color correcting pigments. Orange is the complementary color to blue and works well to filter out excess darkness on our skin. And deeper shades of orange can create warmth to the skin almost like a bronzer does. Demi Correctors
