Rihanna is known for her bold make-up as well as her music , and now her beauty look can be copied thanks to a make-up artist's new video.
Cosmetics expert Michelle Phan, who has a wildly popular YouTube channel, has made a step-by-step guide on Vogue.com using dark lipstick, liquid eyeliner and plenty of contouring to recreate Rihanna's signature look.
And she tops it off with a backwards cap and metallic accessories, proving that anyone can transform into a celebrity sexy "Bad Girl".
MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “warm mauve with silver frost.” It’s a muted, dark brown with copper, mauve, and silver flecks of shimmer in it. The finish is more frosted, lightly metallic. MAC Icon (DC, $16.00) is several shades lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency, but it didn’t apply as evenly as I’d like. It doesn’t feel gritty in the tube, despite the high shimmer content, initially or as it wears away. On me, the color lasted four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. It is a Viva Glam, limited life, shade, and it is packaged in a metallic red, rubberized tube. Viva Glam is one of the best charitable causes in beauty, as every cent of the selling price goes to the MAC AIDS Fund.
