Makeup Look Lust: Rihanna

We are seriously lusting over Rihanna’s makeup here. As per, her skin looks dewy and flawless, while her eyes have a summery smoky vibe to them. Usually, we expect eyeshadow colours within the realm of browns, greys and blacks to achieve a smoky eye, however, Rihanna has created her own version of the smoky eye! Her version is Summer friendly and brings an aura of warmth to the face, while making her green eyes stand out! Have a look below at the products we suggest you use to create a Rihanna inspired summer smoky eye look.  
  • Face
Rihanna’s skin looks amazing and healthy. Use a matte foundation with medium to full coverage, like Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and poreless foundation.  For under the eyes, use a light reflecting concealer with buildable coverage, like Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. Gentle contouring will tie the look together, try the Smashbox contour kit
  • Eyes
For the eyes, buff a small amount of MAC eyeshadow in the shade “amber lights” all over the lid. This is a gorgeous orange, peachy bronze colour.  For the crease, use the MAC eyeshadow “coppering”. This shade is a red bronze colour (which looks amazing with all eye colours, especially green!). Be warned, this MAC eyeshadow is highly pigmented, a little goes a long way. Ensure that you use lightly. To make the colour warmer and slightly more bronze, use your bronzer and buff this across your lids over the MAC “coppering” eyeshadow as this will tone down the redness and create a warm almost peach like colour. Fan the eyeshadow out towards the eyebrows, with a clean blending brush. As you can see in the photo, Rihanna’s eyeshadow is blended up, quite high. Use a liquid eyeliner like MAC liquid eyeliner to create a little cat-eyed look. Use a black kohl eyeliner to line the inner rims of the eyes For the lashes, use a volumising mascara like No7 Extravagant Volume Mascara. You could also use Ardell Individual Lashes for higher impact! 
  • Lips
For lips, opt for a nude lipstick like Tom Ford “sable smoke”.
