Get Rihanna’s Fierce Factor

RIHANNA has gone from Barbados babe, to good girl gone bad, to just being true to herself. And we’ve enjoyed the ride with her taking inspiration from her hair and make-up along the way. Her style is so versatile, it’s hard to assign a signature look to the star. Her choices are bold, edgy and fierce, but at the same time sweet.  She’s found the sweet spot between innocent and sassy. But there are three things she doesn’t compromise on: glowing skin, bold lips and voluminous lashes. Take a que from Riri and implement her looks into your make-up routine.

Knockout Pout

Always progressive, Riri rocked blue lipstick before it was a thing. And it turned out that she actually used eyeliner to create the lip shade. Since then brands have stepped it up on the colour choices in lipsticks. Everything from emerald green to sunshine yellow is on offer now! And we’re sure Rihanna couldn’t be happier, because she won’t be giving up her bold lip choices anytime soon.

Shine On

The key to Rihanna’s bronzed, glowing skin is preparation. It’s super important to create a clean canvas for make-up. Use micellar water to ensure there’s no make-up residue left on the face. After applying foundation, it’s time for Rihanna’s go-to product: bronzer.  Warm up the perimeter of your face with a complimentary bronzer, preferably one with rose gold undertones if you’ve got toffee to chocolate-hued skin. You’ll look ‘done’ with the sweep of a brush using just one product!

TIP: Collar bones are the latest body part to join the #BodyGoals trend. Next time you wear a strapless top, draw attention to the feature by lightly dusting your collar bone with your favourite highlighter.

Viva Glamorous

RIHANNA rarely wears heavy or dark eye make-up, rather choosing to sweep a beautiful, neutral pearly or shimmery finish eyeshadow. But it’s anything but basic. She just chooses to focus on her lashes. By wiggling the mascara brush back and forth at the base of the lashes and then pulling through to the tips will coat lashes evenly. Need more va-va-voom? Strip Lashes create a fuller, natural and/or dramatic look, depending on what you’re going for.
