Rihanna’s Smokey Eye Makeup — Get Her Look

STEP 1: Apply a moisturizer to hydrate your face, then add primer. This helps to keep your makeup fresh and long-lasting.

STEP 2: Apply a flesh tone foundation all over your face with a damp sponge. (TIP: Apply even to your lips — this creates an even base for nude lipstick.) Continue by setting your foundation with a finishing powder.

STEP 3: For an even more dramatic look like Rihanna, apply a matte nude blush to the hollows of your cheeks. This will act as a contour, creating more depth to your face.

STEP 4: To achieve Rihanna’s smokey eye, we suggest Votre Vu’s Le Joli Crayon Soft Eye Liner in Charbon. It’s a “mistake-proof” eyeliner that glides on just like liquid liner. It’s also rich in mineral pigments, fruit extracts, and vitamin E. It provides a smooth application and won’t leave your skin rough or dry.

STEP 5: Apply the Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon Soft Eye Liner in Charbon along your top and bottom lash line, creating a slight wing. Use a smudging brush to smoke out the liner.

Lastly, apply a nude lipstick — now you’re ready to rock out like Rihanna!
