Today I wanted to recreate Rihanna’s makeup. She is usually seen wearing a peachy bronze eye, red lip, and, of course, flawless skin. Rihanna, paired with her AMAZING voice, is an icon of beauty and style to many.

let’s jump right in!
To start, I’m going to prime my eyes with a translucent primer.
Gently pat this until it is completely blended in.
Now, as always, I’m going to use my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk and apply this under my brow and inner corner.
Blend this out.
Now, for a brow bone MATTE highlight, I’m going to apply Urban Decay’s Broken eyeshadow, just a matte creamy color.
Now for my inner corner, I’m going to use Urban Decay’s Zephyr eyeshadow.
To define my crease a bit, I’m going to take Urban Decay’s Beware eyeshadow and buff this through my crease.
Now I’m going to start with the peachy colors on my lid.
First, to blend the inner corner with the bright peachy-pink on my lid that we will be applying later, I’m going to pat MAC’s JEST eyeshadow, a light peachy nude, right where those two colors will meet.
Now with my FAVORITE MAC eyeshadow, Expensive Pink, I’m going to pat this on the middle of my lid.
For the bronze that Rihanna usually sports, I’m going to take MAC’s Sable eyeshadow and pat this on my outer corner.
Blend the top of these colors.
To further define my crease, I’m going to apply MAC’s Twinks eyeshadow throughout the crease.
Now with a tiny brush, I’m going to use Sable again on my lower lash line.
To further define it, I’m going to smudge Urban Decay’s Demolition eyeshadow in between my lashes.
I created a wing with liquid eyeliner, and am now going to line my upper lashline with Rimmel’s Gel eyeliner in Black.
I added individual lashes to achieve Rihanna’s full lash look.
For lips, I used NYX’s Eros Lipstick for the perfect Rihanna Red lip. Her favorite is MAC’s Ruby Woo, but the NYX color is a dupe.
I was getting my school pictures made on the day that I did this look, so I switched to a peachy pink lip for that! To get flawless skin in my photos, however, I used the Make Up for Ever HD foundation.
Rihanna Wears a nude blush, But I need more color, so I opted for MAC’s Fever blush.
There is your Rihanna look! I hope you try this out, and if you do, definitely let me know!
Have a lovely day!
