I've been wanting to do a makeup tutorial for Rihanna for a while now. She's one of the few in Hollywood that always seems to be trying new looks with her makeup. Most of the time, Celebrity Makeup looks the same to me...very natural with maybe some black eyeliner. Rihanna takes risks with her look and I respect that. We've all heard the recent events in the news about her situation with Chris Brown. Let me say that I'm definitely on Team Rihanna...and I hope she has a speedy recovery.
I thought it would be good to represent Team Rihanna with one of my favorite looks of hers. She wore this vibrant pink lip to the Nickolodeon Awards last year. I love the bright colors!
I decided to replicate the look. The key to the makeup is a winged out shimmery blue eyeliner and hot pink, matte lips. Another tip is that Rihanna tends to go 1/2 a shade lighter on her foundation so that she can do extra contouring with her peach/warm toned blushes and contour colors.
Check out my video tutorial!
Pretty close right? Looking back I wish I had a brighter lipstick but it's pretty close. My boyfriend suggested superimposing her hair on top of mine...that would of been funny but I was up at 3am editing the video and just wanted to get it done!
My next celebrity tutorial is on Ciara's look from her recent video. Also on my list, Britney Spears and Beyonce.
