I’ve never really been one to jump on the celeb makeup look bandwagon, but i was truly inspired by this one. Rihanna’s latest song collaboration, the video that is for ‘Wild Thoughts’ was nothing short of great quality. She always brings her best to the table and that’s why she remains one of the top artistes of our generation.
Her makeup look was absolutely amazing! The moment i saw the video i thought to myself, perfection! I loved the colours, just so vibrant and bold, very fitting for Summer.
I had to recreate the look. It is inspired so it may not be the exact replica of hers. I found this makeup look so much fun to do, i’m an avid lover of bold colours, even though i’d never actually wear them out on a daily basis, but just working with them, mixing and blending puts me in a happy place.
To break down the look;
For the face i mixed Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation in Truffle and Caramel. LA Girls concealer in Fawn for the under eyes and Sascha Buttercup powder to set the concealer in place.
To set my foundation i used the usual Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Dark deep. Sleeks contour kit in medium and to highlight the top of my cheeks, Revolution bronzer in Rock on world.
I used three palettes to complete the eyes. Revolution Redemption palette (one of the blues for outer corners), Cargo California Throwback (the teal and very dark brown for the lid and outer corners) and Morphe 25A (couple light shades for the brow bone area and a brown for the transition shade), i sort of winged it as i wasn’t exactly sure about the shades of green she wore.
The lips were a combination of Coloured Raine’s Cherry Blossom and Colourpop’s Creeper. I loved the outcome! To see the tutorial for this look, see link below.
