Many TikTok influencers and makeup artists have identified one of the biggest trends for 2022 to be the dewy, no-makeup makeup look, but for people of color, who are richly blessed with melanin, the question of what brands work?
Currently in the lead with the beauty gurus is Saie beauty (excellent), but I had to ask if Fenty Beauty can compete and win this trending category? Thank you, Bold Public Relations, for helping me research this story, and let me say —Fenty Beauty showed up and showed out!
Their brand’s ingredients and fragrances are clean (any synthetic fragrance we use is less than 1 percent of the total formula), with all Fenty Skin products extensively tested for safety and allergy and undergo a third-party safety review.
Rihanna was there for the “no makeup, makeup” trend as early as 2020, telling Essence that she prefers “an effortless look as the ‘summer Fenty Face,’ and now, in 2022, the billionaire-entrepreneur has again proven that she’s a woman of vision.
Here are my thoughts on the incredible products that Fenty Beauty has to help you create that perfect, flawless (yes, flawless) beauty look.
New and a must-have is Toast’d Swirl Bronze Shimmer Powders. Still, you must act quickly because this is a limited edition and considered a “supersized” bronze shimmer powder that delivers high-impact, multi-dimensional radiance for the face + body. It’s available in two ultra-wearable shades, Chocolate Swiller (champagne bronze shimmer) and Pecan Swiller (gold-bronze shimmer). Toast’d Swirl the skin an extra warmth and delivers a smooth, blurred-skin effect for the ultimate sunkissed glow from head-to-toe.
For the lips, the new Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Strain delivers a wet-look shine and leaves a soft stain. Available in four colors: Mai Type, Zesty Bestie, Strawberry Sangria, and Berry Banger.
And back in stock — sold out for months — the Fenty Fragrance is back. Fenty Eau De Parfum has whiffs of magnolia and musk uniting with tangerine, vanilla, coconut, blueberry, and hints of Bulgarian rose. A blend that expresses itself uniquely on each wearer for a one-of-a-kind scent. Don’t sleep on the Wish You Wood LongWear Pencil Eyeliner in colors ‘Cuz I’m Black,” which is a black matte, and ‘In Big Truffle,’ which is a perfect, chocolate brown matte.
Now how you can get that glow with Fenty using their Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer, Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer (soft silk), and Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder (Banana), to name a few. If you want to jump off the dewy trend train, use their Pro Filt’r Mattifying Primer. Remember that all beauty starts with clean skin, and one of the best that I can suggest is Buttah Skincare.
