how to look like rihanna :)

hey girls!!!
I got a few requests to do tutorials on some of rihanna's looks
so I searched the internet and even though her makeup is always gorgeous i managed to pick two of favourite looks to do today.

so heres the first look....


  • Smashbox oil free face primer
  • Smashbox lid primer
  • NYX concealer in light and green
  • Revlon photoready foundation in beige
  • Avon pressed powder
  • Avon supershock intense mascara
  • Rimmel medium matte bronzer
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in zero
  • l'oreal super liner in carbon gloss
  • Gesso eyeshadow by MAC
  • 1000 hour natural lashes in envious black (available in boots and supervalu)
  • Coastal scents 88 shimmer palette
  • Coastal scents blush palette
Ok so lets get started:
  • Prime your face and your lids
  • Apply a green concealer where needed the green cancels out any redness on your face esp from blemishes i also find that its great for brightening up your undereyes 
  • Blend in concealer gently under eyes with your ring finger
  • Then taking a light green eyeshadow (1) apply in the center of your lids using a flat brush i used my coastal scents 88 shimmer palette
  • Then flip your brush and taking a slightly darker green colour (2) apply in the outer half of your eyes blending both colours together using a blending brush. the dark colour will create depth to the eye
  • Now use a matte white eyeshadow to highlight the eyebrow and inner corners of your eye for this I used macs gesso.
  • Line your water line using a black pencil liner
  • Line you lids using a liquid liner (how to apply liner tutorial coming soon!)
  • Apply your foundation using a sponge or foundation brush start from the center and work outwards
  • Apply concealer if needed and blend in using your ring finger.
  • Now take your pressed powder and with your sponge roll over your face to set foundation or if using a powder brush apply powder in downward strokes so you dont interfere with the natural hairs on your face.
  • Rihanna has gorgeous glowing bronzed skin so apply bronzer on your cheeks,nose,forehead and jaw line to give you that brozed look
  • And use a light pink blush on your cheeks.
  •  I used coastal scents blush palette below the colour i used is marked

  • Apply false lashes if needed and a light pink lipgloss to finish off the look :)

  • I used Avon lipgloss in candy cane



    • Smashbox oil free face primer
    • Smashbox lid primer
    • NYX foundation in beige
    • NYX concealer in light
    • NYX eyeshadow in 59 hot pink
    • Woodwinked by mac
    • Texture by mac
    • Gorgeous gold  by mac
    • Urban decay pencil liner in zero
    • L'oreal liquid liner in carbon gloss
    • Rimmel bronzer in medium matte
    • Avon super shock intense mascara
    • Essence eyebrow pencil
    • Hush frost cream highlight by mac
    • 1000 hour natural lashes in envious black
    • Bronze lipstick

    Ok so lets get started....
    • Prime face and lids
    • Apply a goldy bronze colour to your lids i used macs woodwinked
    • Apply a tan colour shadow across your crease this colour is a similiar shade to rihannas skin so it shows up darker on me than it does on her for this I used texture by mac and blended both colours together.
    • Next apply a gold colour to your inner cornerS and under your brow to add a nice glow to the look I used gorgeous gold by mac but any gold colour will do the trick!
    • Apply a hot pink colour to your lower lids I used a hot pink colour by NYX
    • Line your water line using a black pencil
    • Line your lids using a black liquid liner
    • Apply lashes curl and add mascara
    • Conceal your under eyes and any blemishes you may have and apply your foundation
    • I used a shade darker than I normally use to give me that sun kissed glow that rihanna has
    • Apply bronzer to your cheeks,forehead,nose,chin and jawline
    • Rihanna doesnt look like shes wearing any blush but she has a nice glow on her cheeks so apply a highlight to your cheeks
    • Rihanna doesnt seem to have her brows filled in so lightly apply a light brown brow pencil
    •  Apply a bronze lipstick and use a clear lipgloss over it so the colour wont be too intense and your done :)
    • You dont have to use a hot pink colour to give you that pop of colour you could use purple,blue,teal any colour would look amazing!!
