It goes without saying that 2020 has been a year of diminished glam, with beauty squads and red carpet looks largely switched for masks—of both the safety and skin-saving variety—and DIY, Zoom-ready makeup moments. So when makeup artist Hung Vanngo took to Instagram today to share his first collaboration in ten months (!) with longtime client Selena Gomez, followers around the world stopped mid-scroll. Far from impractical, Gomez’s peachy makeup look (built entirely from her own line, Rare Beauty) offered an autumnal feel ideal for this season specifically. 

Beginning with a flawless complexion—”It’s all about fresh, healthy skin,” says Vanngo of the moment—Gomez’s cheeks were warmed by washes of peach and her lips overlined in the same shade. The hue emitted a cheerful feel that paired well with Gomez’s cozy sweater. A glossy raven mane, brushed up brows, and lush lashes offered both frame and punctuation, while a dusting of shimmering eyeshadow served as a reminder that the holidays with all their light are just around the corner.
