The spring/summer 2022 fashion month runways — a.k.a. Etro, Christian Cowan, Rodarte, and Drome — have shown us that peach makeup will be everywhere in 2022. Apparently, Rihanna and her long-time makeup artist, Priscilla Ono, took some cues from the season’s shows. The singer wore a full-on peachy beat to Off-White’s runway show in Paris on February 28.
Her peachy look featured coral-stained blush, a wash of orange-tinted eye shadow, and a pinky-nude shade on the lips. Per Ono’s Instagram post of the look, she used Fenty Beauty’s Fenty Icon Semi-Matte Lipstick in Motha Luva, which is described by the brand as a “light pink nude” lip color. As for the rest of the beat, Ono didn’t list the specific products that were used to achieve that peachy flush of color on RiRi’s cheeks and eyes, but she did note that the whole look was created using products from Fenty Beauty.
It turns out that RiRi’s peachy makeup can be flattering on all skin tones. Makeup artist Tommy Napoli previously told Allure that the color gives the face a brightening effect. “[It] can be a brightener for translucent under eyes or hyperpigmentation that appears blue or grey — on the color wheel,” he said. “This means one can neutralize versus covering with base or foundation or concealer in a thick way.” In a nutshell: peach works wonders for covering dark spots.
Peach’s appeal also comes from the complexion-boosting colors that it’s made from. “It’s [a mix of] pink, orange, red, and yellow,” makeup artist Joseph Carillo previously told Allure. “These are all colors we look for when trying to find the perfect foundation shade.”
Riri, thanks for reminding us that we all need to hop on the peach makeup trend, stat.
