“Peach Fuzz” beauty buys you need to wear Pantone’s new Colour of the Year in 2024

Pantone’s new Colour of the Year is here—here’s how you can incorporate it into your beauty routine for 2024.

Pantone has announced its 2024 colour of the year, and it’s a game-changer. Indeed, next year’s hue is none other than Peach Fuzz (or, as it is officially named, Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz). Call it apricot, peach, persimmon, tangerine, coral or carrot—the neutral shade spans many nuances, and it’s as delicious as its many fruity descriptors would suggest.

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a colour radiant with warmth and modern elegance,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone Colour Institute. “A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

Described by Pantone’s team as “a contemporary peach with depth whose gentle lightness is understated”, Peach Fuzz is a peaceful shade that directly contrasts the intense, “look-at-me” hue of 2023’s Colour of the Year. Unlike Viva Magenta, Peach Fuzz embraces subtlety for the coming months—a sweet neutral that doesn’t try too hard. As such, it’s going to be a breeze to incorporate into your makeup wardrobe over the next year.

For example, a flush of Peach Fuzz over the cheeks adds a subtle healthy glow to the complexion—and, when paired with a matching wash over the eyes and a touch on the lips with a gloss, it’s an easy, cohesive look that won’t ever look overdone. Alternatively, it’s also beautiful paired with rich hues of deep red and plum or earthy browns. Try pairing your Peach Fuzz blush with a bold red lip and/or a smokey eye for a more dramatic take on the neutral. It’s a fabulous opportunity to play with colour in the coming year.

You could also use the colour to update the bygone trend of frosty blond locks for the season, giving your tresses a rosy-peach tint that’ll bring out your features beautifully. It’s a versatile shade that suits a wide range of complexions, so fret not about the details! Plus, peach locks are the natural progression from 2022 and 2023’s respective copper and scarlet trends—a more lived-in, relaxed colour that’s easy to maintain and even easier to wear effortlessly.

Of course, another obvious option is to wear the tone on your fingertips. A solid swipe of Peach Fuzz over your nails makes for the perfect neutral manicure. Plus, the radiant colour will ensure that your claws look far from boring.

In short, the possibilities are endless! So, we’re not going to leave you high and dry—we’ve rounded up a few beauty essentials that will get you rocking Peach Fuzz for 2024. From perfect peach blushers to apricot lippies, find your new beauty essentials up ahead:
