How To Get Rihanna’s Bronzed Makeup Look

by Stephanie Montes

It’s no secret bronzer is a go-to summer beauty staple for daytime activities but as evidenced by Rihanna at the 2015 BET Awards, it also makes you look just as beautiful for a night on the town. Take the pop star’s bronzed lids, nude lips, perfectly groomed brows and undeniable glow for a spin using our favorite beauty buys. Going from beach to seaside dinner has never looked so good or been so easy.

Warm Up Your Foundation

Mix a few drops of this liquid bronzer to foundation and apply it with a Beautyblender sponge to give your face an overall bronzed glow. Let it dry and create a subtle contour by pressing more bronzer into hallows of cheeks, along the hairline and jawline and down the sides of the nose. Set with a translucent powder.

Give Eyes A Sultry Shape

Use a liquid eyeliner to trace the upper lash line and create a sultry, elongated look. Instead of creating an almond-shape curve, draw a straight line across and create a wing at the outer corner.

Create Flawless Brows

Brushing brows downward before going over them with a brow pencil allows you to see gaps that need to be filled in. Use a powdery brow pencil to perfect the shape before brushing them back up. Set with a clear brow gel to keep brows in place all night.

Give Your Lips Dimension

Use a matte nude lip liner to trace and fill in lips. With a lighter shade of lipstick, dab some color on the center of lips to create a subtle highlight and blot–this gives the illusion of a fuller-looking pout.
