We can never get enough of this style icon! Rihanna is one celebrity whose beauty and fashion looks are always fresh and thought-provoking; because the star always dares to be different. She serves up looks that are edgy, chic, and unique. And, the confidence she exudes with each appearance is what earns everyone’s seal of approval.
While RiRi has dabbled with almost every style aesthetic you can think of and made it her own, we still yearn to see what’s next from her on the style front. It isn’t even about how dramatic her outfit is; she often changes her beauty look with the season and that’s what makes all the difference. To the premier of the Savage X Fenty show in NYC, Rihanna chose to dazzle the event in a yellow rhinestone ensemble and striking silver eye makeup which was applied in a way that highlighted her eye shape beautifully. It would be nice to switch from the ever-flattering gold hue to a striking silver for this festive season.

It is important to have a strong foundation base if you want your eye makeup to pop. First prep your skin with a hydrating moisturiser and let it get absorbed into your skin. After the moisturiser is absorbed by the skin, apply a tinted primer which will even out your skin tone and bring out better coverage from your foundation. Blend a cream or liquid foundation on your face and neck and set the foundation with a dab of loose setting powder.
A makeup look is never complete without well-defined brows. Use a brow pencil to draw hair-like strokes and blend it with a spoolie brush. Set the strands in place with a brow gel.
Prep the lids with a primer so that your eyeshadow looks more vivid when applied. Apply a toasty brown or nude eyeshadow hue all over the lids. Choose a champagne shimmer eyeshadow shade and apply it over and above the crease of your lids. Blend well so that there are no harsh lines. Now, bring out a silver glitter eye pencil and apply it to the inner corners of your eyes, extending it slightly inwards on the lower lash line and all over the upper eyelids. Intensify the colour of the eye pencil by dabbing a silver glitter eyeshadow over it. Define the rest of the lower lash line with a dark brown eyeshadow topped with a gold kohl eyeliner. Tight line the upper lash lines with black eyeliner and don’t forget to apply mascara.
Contour your features with a face palette. Use a bronzer beneath your cheekbones, jawline and into your hairline. Highlight areas like the cheekbones and bridge of your nose for a nice glow. Blend a warm-toned blush on your cheeks to tie the look together.
Moisturise your lips with a nourishing lip balm and dab off the excess product after a few minutes. Outline your lips with a chocolate brown lip pencil and blend it inwards. Swipe a creamy caramel brown lipstick on your lips and you are all set to slay!
We bet you’re going to be in awe of the results!
