No doubt Rihanna is the modern-day style icon with the bold yet nonchalant fashion statements she manages to pop out each time.
The Good Girl Gone Bad singer’s style is immensely personal and has championed her looks on major red carpets, dedicatedly adheres to the Met Gala themes, and has been the first one to wear items that we see on the runways of any fashion week.
The mastermind hairstylist behind the Barbadian singer, Yusef Williams says, ‘She’s not a high maintenance person. It’s never a situation where she’s like, maybe not. It’s always like, I’m just going for it and I don’t care.’
Rihanna, being straight-up and fearless celebrity has always provided with a few major beauty tips to be followed and here are some of them you need to know and adapt from the Bad Girl Riri.
PICK BOLD FOR THE LIPS
Rihanna never stops experimenting with her makeup; especially her lips have seen all kind of lipstick shades under the sun. Be it the light pastel pink or bright electric blue. She has used red against mustard yellow, bubblegum pink and army green. She has also rocked an entirely purple face in her Elle magazine cover and her look in London’s Fenty Launch was unconventional as well. If you are not a person comfortable with trying the crazy colours, then try coordinating your lip colour with the colour of your shirt or try pairing your regular red lipstick with a contrasting colour in your outfit just the way Rihanna pulled the subtle and totally cool look, off at the Oceans 8 Premiere.
THE ULTIMATE HIGHLIGHTER GLOW
Known for her flawless and shiny skin, Rihanna swears by her makeup apart from her healthy diet and lots of water. Her on-point makeup tells us that she definitely knows how to work that highlight. Start with your perfectly hydrated skin by dusting your highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, above your bronzer and under your brow bones. This will define your cheekbones and highlight your eyes. Wet your brush with setting spray before you apply your highlighter in order to get a dense bold and more saturated look. You can spray on your beauty blender too to get the enhanced look.
BOLD EYE AND LIP TOGETHER
The Umbrella singer proved the old saying ‘bold lip and bold eye don’t look good together’ wrong by rocking in her golden smokey eye with deep lip colour for a nighttime look. For another look, she doubled down on seasonably dark makeup with a striking dark indigo lip colour. You must check out her products from her own brand, Fenty Beauty, which is designed for all kind of shades and colours for all the skin tones.
The trend of smoky red eyeshadow and amplified black mascara is trending for quite some time now and is here to stay. Although pulling the red eyeshadow effortlessly can get a little tricky but it is completely wearable. You will love the Little Red Riding Eyes this season, but if you need to tone down the full red look, then blend some bronze shadow in your crease and around the edges and keep the rest of the face neutral and soft just the way Rihanna does by adding up with her shimmery nude lip.
EVERYDAY BEACH WAVES
The singer and fashion designer seems to always be making a statement with her hair with long beach raven locks being her favourite. Her Instagram shows her love for loose beachy waves which compliments any glam look. To get the waves, use a curling iron on your hair and finish it with texturizing spray. Known for changing her hairstyle as often as changing her outfits, Rihanna defines all the fashion rules on her own.
