Makeup Inspired by Rihanna's Work Featuring Drake

If someone would kindly translate the lyric to work so I can sing along, it would be greatly appreciated...


You guys, I don't know how this happened but I am still completely obsessed with Rihanna's newest single work and it's video. It's kind of a problem.

So I decided (as any blogger would) that I needed to recreate the gorgeous look Rihanna rocked in the first half of her video. All products used are listed below!

I began by using the Milani Prime and shield primer. This primer is mattifying and controls oil for all my greasy girls. I went ahead and did my color correcting off camera but I have a whole video detailing how I cover my dark marks and scarring. Using my Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation mixed in with my Milani 2 in 1 Conceal and Perfect Foundation, I applied an even amount of foundation to my face for a nice full coverage.

I noticed in the "work" video, Rihanna's brows were rather thin and didn't seem too fussed over. I wanted to stay true to that look as the vibe of the video was a chill party and not an "on fleek"instagram photo session. I used the Milani "Stay Put Brow Gel" on my brows and barely sculpted them using Wet n Wild's Cover all concealer. I also used the concealer to highlight underneath my eyes, the cupid's bow of my mouth, my forehead, and down the bridge of my nose.

Starting on the gorgeous yet simple eye look Rihanna Rocked I essentially used one palette: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette. Starting with the dusty rose shade, I used a fluffy brushed place the color above my crease. I then mixed dusty rose and aubergine to place in my crease to deepen my eye look. I packed the shade buttery over my mobile lid. Next I placed the ELF Cosmetics Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Toast over the buttery shade on my mobile lid for a gold glitter effect.

After lining my lips in black, I FINALLY got the chance to use my NYX Wicked Lippie in Risque (yayyy) for a makeup look. Because I feel like Rihanna wasn't super contoured or heavily done up for this look I skipped the contour and blush and went straight for my Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in Riviera and placed that everywhere that I highlighted for that island glow.

That's It! This look was so fun to recreate and I hope you guys enjoyed it. For more videos like this, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
