The One Makeup Trend You Should Steal From the Emmys

It looks gorgeous on everyone. 

The biggest makeup trend from the Emmys last night might have slipped right past you: fresh, barely-there makeup. Quite a departure from the sultry smoky eyes and vampy lips we are accustomed to see at these events, these natural looks would look just as good for a day at the office as they did on the red carpet.

Our favorite shade to appear on some of these award-winning faces? Peach. Countless celebrities rocked the dewy, fruity shade in approachable yet strikingly glam lip colors and blushes. Not sure how you can adapt them IRL? Here, our favorite looks from last night, as well as the shades you can use to adapt for your own look.

Zoe Kravitz

The subtle hue gave the Big Little Lies star’s cheeks a lively glow. You can copy the look with the weightless Make Up For Ever HD Blush in Pink Sand. Though the shade might look dramatic in the compact, once it gets on your cheeks, this dark peach looks like a natural flush.

To steal The Handmaid’s Tale star’s positively sweet style, use Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Peach-Infused Highlight Palette to draw out the cheekbones without looking too contour-y.

Biel proves you don’t have to have cool undertones to rock the peach trend. Choose a light peach with pink (rather than orange) accents to keep you looking balanced and vivacious.

Hough’s peachy-keen cheeks can be copied with Nars’ Super Orgasm. Just a tad more orange than the cult-favorite shade, this next-level blush adds gold glitter into the mix for a light-catching effect.

We love how the Portlandia creator’s classic eyeliner and highlighter combines with her liquid peach gloss to create a retro dewy look. Try it for yourself with a few swipes of Too Faced Peach Creamy Lip Oil in Peach Tease.
