Weekend Makeup Inspo: Rihanna’s Killer Look

by Stephanie Montes

Sure, Rihanna is known for her sometimes-wacky ensemble choices and her occasional out-there beauty looks but in our eyes, bad girl Riri can do no wrong. She proved us right at last night’s Daily Front Row Los Angeles Fashion Awards where she stepped out rocking copper lids, nude lips, a fierce cat eye and an undeniable glow. Take Rihanna’s makeup look for a spin this weekend using our favorite beauty buys. Throw on a pair of gold hoops and Take A Bow.

Eye Shadow

A reddish copper shadow on the crease of the eyelid and on the lower lash line makes eyes pop.


Use a creamy eyeliner and a brush to create a cat eye that starts thin at the inner corner of the eye and thickens toward the outer wing.

Eyebrow Gel

Keep brows natural (don't fill them in) yet tamed with a few swipes of a clear eyebrow gel.


A pale nude draws attention directly to the eyes. Avoid looking washed out by choosing a creamy lipstick with a subtle shine.


Using light and dark highlighter shades gives you an all around glow and a subtle contour. Use a light shade on the bridge of the nose, chin and the apples of your cheeks. Swipe a darker shade around the hairline, hallows of cheeks and along the jawline.
