Look, we’re obviously not saying that pink is on its way out. It isn’t. Pink is still a thing, and you can still expect to see pink ends on hair or wafts of fuchsia eyeshadow paired with lashings of mascara both across your Instagram feed and IRL over the next few months.

But there’s a new colour contending for the beauty crown at the moment. Peach - a bit like pink in the effect it has but warmer, more skin-like, less scary - has been subtly edging its way in for months, with celebs like Gigi Hadid, Iggy Azalea, and Georgia May Jagger adding peachy balayaged sections to their hair - and a host of beauty brands releasing peachy offerings.
