Have you been curious about how to achieve a trendy soft girl aesthetic? This ultra-girly look typically includes dresses, bows, light colors, skirts, and flowers. Of course, you'll need the right makeup if you truly want to nail this dainty, beautiful aesthetic. And naturally, you probably think of pink clothes, nails, and makeup when you hear the phrase "soft look," as no "soft girl" can go wrong with light pink hues. But believe it or not, wearing pink eyeshadow, lip gloss, and blush aren't the only ways to do your makeup for a sweet, soft look. Peach makeup is a fun alternative that still fits the gentle aesthetic for a girly look with more of an orange tint.

"Because peach can be a brightener for translucent undereyes or hyperpigmentation that appears blue or grey — on the color wheel, the opposite of blue is orange — peach can add a lot of light to the face," Tommy Napoli, a makeup artist, told Allure. Thus, rocking peach makeup can brighten your face, making you look more awake and polished.

Get girly with peach eyeshadow

Wearing peach eyeshadow is an excellent way to brighten your eyes, making them pop without being too over-the-top if you don't want an ultra-bold look. There are many ways to wear peach eyeshadow, such as a brighter version of a smoky eye with a peach twist, a peachy cut crease, or an all-peach look, via L'Oréal Paris. So, your peachy eyeshadow looks can be as dramatic or subtle as you'd like, but either way, the shadow will help you achieve a sweet, soft appearance.

For instance, shimmery peach eyeshadow with long lashes gives off an ethereal, soft glam vibe. On the other hand, a darker peach shadow in a contrasty look with a vibrant purple eyeshadow above the peach section fits right in with the color-blocking trend. Moreover, wearing a very light peach eyeshadow is perfect for adding just a subtle touch of brightness for a natural vibe, while creating a look that features a blend of peach and pink shadows is excellent for an artistic, sunset-inspired design. Or, if you want a head-turning peachy look, try drawing a design with white eyeliner over your peach eyeshadow and wearing some floral face decals.

Anyone looking for an eyeshadow palette featuring various shades of peachy hues should check out the Baby Got Peach Shadow Palette, available at ColourPop for $14. With a near-perfect 4.8 stars, the palette offers many peach-inspired eyeshadows — some with pink undertones, others with more orange, and some that shimmer.

Peach lips are always pretty

While peach eyeshadows are great for brightening your eyes and making your irises pop, peach lip products are excellent for making your lips look sweet and kissable. So, it's no surprise that there are more than 28,000 posts devoted to #peachlips on Instagram. Peach lips pair very well with peach eyeshadow for a bright, all-around peachy look, while a warm peach lip also provides a beautiful contrast to darker, gray eye makeup looks, softening the edgy appearance. Furthermore, there are many peach lip products to choose from, whether you want lipstick, tinted lip balm, or lip gloss, so there's something for everyone.

For example, the Armani Beauty Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick in Sand is available at Sephora for around $40 and presents a subtle peachy undertone. While this product isn't cheap, a celebrity makeup artist highly recommends it, and it has more than 4 out of five stars at Sephora. "This is my favorite peachy beige liquid lipstick for light to medium skin tones," Mai Quynh, the celebrity makeup artist, told Editorialist. And if you want more of a pinkish-peach color, the Stila Cosmetics Convertible Color in Petunia sells at Dermstore for $25, and you can use it on your lips and cheeks. "The soft balm-like texture smooths over skin for a whisper of color," Edward Cruz, another celebrity makeup artist, told Editorialist.

Be glamorous with peach blush

Don't assume that the peachy makeup possibilities only include eyeshadow and lip products — peach blush is one of the best blush colors we can think of, as the soft hue will brighten and flatter your cheeks. According to E! News, many celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kerry Washington use peach blush to draw attention to their cheekbones without overdoing it. After all, a pop of peach on your cheeks will beautifully complement the rest of your look, whether you're flaunting more peach makeup with it or a contrasty blue eyeshadow.

You'll be able to find countless peach blushes online, but at the time of writing, Amazon's Choice is the Burt's Bees 100% Natural Blush with Vitamin E, Bare Peach. This blush was made with bamboo, Vitamin E, and honey, and you can buy it on Amazon for less than $10. Moreover, the product has 4.5 stars with more than 3,000 reviews. Meanwhile, the FLOWER Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush in Peach Primrose sells for below $15 at Ulta Beauty and has 4.7 stars with more than 300 reviews.
