Making a surprise appearance at the 2015 BET Awards, Rihanna opted for a slicked back ponytail, clean makeup look and lots of diamond accessories. Get the details on the singer’s latest look!
Rihanna, 27, looked stunning with a mauve smokey eye and tight ponytail at the BET Awards, which aired live on June 28 from Los Angeles, Calif. Find out how to copy her look below!
Rihanna’s go-to makeup artist Mylah Morales Instagrammed her credentials for the award show using an eyeliner pen to block out Rihanna’s name. The pen, which we’re assuming was used for Rihanna’s stellar cat eye was the Diorshow Art Pen Intense Professional Felt-tip Eyeliner Long-Lasting Wear in Catwalk Black.
Rihanna’s BET Awards Look — Slicked Back Ponytail
To get Rihanna’s sleek ponytail, start by brushing your dry hair back and using a flat iron to help smooth your hair if needed. Work in a hair oil like Agave Oil Treatment to tame frizzies and flyaways. Use a small piece of the ponytail to wrap around the base to hide the elastic.
Rihanna’s Exact Manicure — Get The Look
RiRi rocked a french manicure by celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees, who created the look using Red Carpet Manicure Candid Moment Nail Lacquer. Kimmie explains how to get the look:
“1. Prep nails — file, buff, push back the cuticle.
2. Apply a Base Coat — I applied Clingy Base Coat — start by painting a stripe down the center of the nail, then two more stripes on either side. Fill in the entire nail using smooth, even strokes. Allow to dry.
3. Next, I lightly brushed Red Carpet Manicure Candid Moment onto the tips of the nail (think of the shape of a sad face) or you can use nail guides (which are included in the Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit).
4. Lastly, I sealed in the look with Red Carpet Manicure Shine On Top Coat.”
