Once upon a time there were two girls called Kate and Nicola who met in college studying theatrical makeup in 2003. A chance encounter that has since changed the faces of Liverpool (literally) for good. With their love of creative fashion and theatre makeup combined,the two girls had a dream ,that one day they would together rule the makeup world.
Still on our quest, we are delighted to share with you our fabulous one of a kind, words can’t describe, makeup studio in the heart of the Liverpool. Having grown our family along the way, our now team of 13 welcome you to come and experience what ‘Peaches’ is all about.
Our concept is to provide a celebrity service for the everyday girl. We provide a range of makeovers and hair styling for all occasions and ages, making you look and feel the best you’ve ever felt.
Having launched our own range of false Eyelashes, pigments and brushes we look forward to keeping you updated on what lies around the corner for ‘Peaches’ next via our blog.
We hope that our story inspires you.
The Peaches xxxxx
As you may know, we hold many different classes, courses and workshops at the Peaches & Cream salon, one of them being ‘The 10 Years Younger Workshop’ which we had on this week!
The 10 Years Younger Workshop is possibly the most in demand class we have at Peaches due to it being for our more mature clients who want to learn new skills. This weeks class was loads of fun! We had best friends coming, sisters and even make up artists who wanted to learn the tips and techniques for their clients too!
In the class, you watch some demonstrations and then you have the chance to practise on yourself or your model with the help of The Peaches team. It’s lots of fun and you leave feeling absolutely fabulous!

Glasgow Pop Up 2016 is another adventure to add to the Peaches & Cream timeline! After our first Pop Up in Scotland last year, we couldn’t resist visiting again and this time, with lots more pink and craziness!
After an eventful drive up to Glasgow on Sunday with a bus full of The Peaches, we finally arrived at Apartment 29 in the heart of the city where we transformed the venue into a Peaches paradise with pigments, glosses, compacts and all things pink! Devon and Kre had the job of the masterclass room, Laura and Shannon were setting up their weave cave for all the Peachy hair, Alice and Rose creating a mini make up shop, Kya and Rosie organising all the lists and admission and Big Mare doing what Big Mare does best…making us all howl with laughter!
In the morning, we finished creating our balloon ceiling for the entrance and finished the final touches before we opened the Glasgow 2016 Peaches Pop Up! Needless to say, we did spend half an hour taking hundreds of selfies! With the first masterclass starting at 10am, we took one last snap and started welcoming all the shoppers and customers. Big Mare and all her energy got turfed out onto the streets to spread the word about Peaches’ Glasgow takeover, while the rest of us danced around the Pop Up with arms full of swatches!
There were a number of ways for guests to enjoy the pop-up. You could buy a ticket just to shop and pick up your favourite things, and you could also book onto a series of hair and make-up masterclasses to learn how to achieve all of the Peaches classic styles.
Make-up masterclass guests were given a goodie bag of some of the Peaches essentials, here’s what we included…
We were so pleased to be able to include a Garnier Micellar Water in the goodie bag because it’s one of the most used products in the shop kit. For those of you that haven’t used it yet, this micellar water is brilliant for removing make-up quickly and gently. Applied onto a cotton pad, it will remove even eye make-up. It’s something that the girls always use in the salon, and make-up artists should all have something like this in their kit for quick make-up changes on shoot or backstage.
Next was Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. An iconic serum, this is designed to be used to repair and replenish the skin at night. I personally use it twice a day and find that it leaves my skin very plump, hydrated and reduces redness. But why I really wanted to have this in the goodie bag is because it doubles up as the perfect remedy to resurrect drying make-up. Working in the beauty hall allows me to experiment with lots of different products. One of the best tips I was taught by Sammi from the Birmingham Estee Lauder team was to press a few drops of ANR into my skin halfway through the day. The hydrating qualities of the serum will give your make-up a dewy finish and leave it looking freshly applied.
(All of the Peaches would like to say a huge thank you to Garnier and Estee Lauder for enabling us to share some of our favourite skincare pieces with the Peaches guests.)
We also took a range of Peaches products to the Pop Up, including the full range of our fabulous pigments in 23 different colours, ranging from our matte browns to the sparkly pinks! Our Contour Kit was also available and is definitely a best seller for the Glasgow Pop Up! We took lots of our famous Peaches ponys and weaves which seemed to be a real hit too!
During the day we never stopped laughing, Rose managed to find a fake cow and sat on it as if she was going horse riding, Big Mare fished out some white extensions and gave herself a mullet and we had a visit from a little Chihuahua Rolo!
We loved Glasgow Pop Up round 2 and we can’t wait for the next Peaches Pop Up…any guesses where it will be?
Summer is finally here and Peaches are loving the heat! Time to pack away all our jumpers and coats, for a new summery wardrobe. So why not do the same with our makeup? Its time to shake up our wintery routine, for something a little bit lighter and brighter! So get your heavy matte foundations and dark eyeshadows packed away with the jumpers and lets freshen up our faces! Our recent inspiration for this natural look comes from the latest red carpet event, Cannes Film Festival. We were absolutely adoring the gorgeous glowing faces of Bella Hadid and Blake Lively, who have ditched the smokey eye for a fresh dewy look with a touch of glam!
To create this dreamy dewy Cannes look, I started with the brows. Using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Medium Brown. I gently brushed through the hairs using the dip brow to add colour but still keeping the shape natural. I then used Milani brow gel to keep the hairs in place for a glossy natural look.
To create the dewy base, I started with Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow. If you have tired, dull or dehydrated skin, this is the product for you! It gives the skin an instant glow, with anti ageing and collagen boosting ingredients. The product itself is silky smooth and feels weightless and soft on the face. After applying this all over the face, I used a Peaches fave for the foundation – YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat. We are loving this foundation for summer with its weightless feel on the skin and light reflecting formula! Using a foundation brush, it glides on with a gorgeous glowing finish. The skin looks fresh, bright and healthy creating a flawless base.
Next we used the Peaches & Cream Contour Kit, which includes Cream Contour, Sculpting Powder and Halo Highlight! All this for only £20, so theres no need to break the budget before your summer holiday. I gently brushed the cream contour onto the cheeks. This product is super easy to use with its sheer and luminous texture. I then used NARS Hot Sand Illuminator to highlight the cheek bones! This shimmery liquid, enhances the foundations glow to give a natural fresh look. I then set the face with Peaches Halo Highlighter, lightly brushing all over the face to set and enhance the gorgeous glow I’d created. This highlighter has a subtle shimmer perfect for highlighting the cheeks but can also be used for face and eyes for a fresh daytime look! Then to enhance the definition created by the Cream Contour I added a sweep of Peaches sculpting powder under the cheekbones, around the edges of the forehead, along the jawline and to the sides of the nose. Instead of blusher I finished off the face using Peaches Bronzing Powder in Medium/Dark to add a soft bronzed glow to the cheeks.
Don’t put away your Peaches Compacts yet, because we used them for the eyes also! Using Halo, I highlighted the brow bone and tear duct, smudging the product into the areas to naturally brighten the eye!I then applied a wash of Peaches Sculpting across the socket and under the lower lash line. I then completed the look with MaxFactor False Lash Effect Mascara, Peaches 10mm Individual Lashes (which are £1 in our sale!), a natural lip liner and Peaches Bambi Lipgloss!
Due to the success of this look and how gorgeous it looked we’ve created a Fresh Face bundle available to buy online and in store for just £27.50. The bundle contains Halo Pressed Highlighter, Sculpting Powder, Cream Contour, Med/Dark Bronzer and Bambi Lipgloss RRP £6.95.
Before it sells out (which happens with all our bundles) I wanted to tell you all about our matte pigment trio and how to create a full smokey eye using just three colours! Here at peaches we do love our shimmers and glitters but we are also fascinated with the queen of matte – Kylie Jenner. So if your are loving her look, you’ll be in love with our trio of mattes that are a must have for any makeup kit!
To create this smokey smouldering matte look, our pigments – LUNA, KIM and SOUL were used. Yes, just three colours! The Peaches & Cream Matt Trio comes at the price of £12, giving you a total saving of £8.85 if you bought the pigments individually at £6.95 each!
Lets start with LUNA – This pigment is the Creme Brûlée of our collection. Its creamy tone is perfect for highlighting the brow bone and tear duct.
Next is a Peaches must have – KIM! Its burnt orange colour is reminiscent of the Grand Canyon Rocks, with the earthy tones suited to all skin types. The perfect colour for summery day to night time looks.
Finally, we have SOUL – an essential dark chocolate pigment to create depth and colour for that smouldering smokey look.
As you can tell we love our products here at Peaches & Cream and want you to know all our tips and tricks on how to use them. So heres a step by step guide on how I created the Matte Trio smokey eye:
1.Prep – Peaches & Cream Eyeshadow Primer ( £5.95) is a must have before creating any look. A thin layer of the product needs to be applied all over the eyelids, right up to the brow bone and underneath the eye. It helps the Pigment colour glide on nice and strong and it stops eye makeup from creasing.
2.Highlight – Apply Luna along to brow bone and to the inner corner of the eye.
3.Add Colour – Apply Kim underneath the lower lashes , extending the colour out to the outer corner of the eye then blend the colour across the socket.
4.Mixing Colours – Mix Kim & Soul together to create a rich chestnut brown pigment. Repeat step 3 using this colour, however only take this half way across the socket.
5.Add Soul – Using a smudger brush work Soul into the roots of the upper and lower lashes. Then blend a small amount of Soul into the outer corner of the socket.
6.Lid colour – Apply Luna to the centre of the lid to brighten the eyes.
Finally, I finished the look with a thin gel eyeliner by Maybelline, Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara and pair of No.9 Peaches & Cream Lashes!
The Peaches & Cream Matt Trio is available to buy online and in store for just £12!
