#BeautyCrush: Rihanna

#BeautyCrush: Rihanna

With those cat eyes and a so-perfect-it-hurts pout, Rihanna is our current #BeautyCrush. We can always count on Rihanna to set trends and elevate whatever look she decides to grace us with. She’s rocked just about every hair color and style, without looking awkward (unlike some of us, sigh), and remember the naked dress she donned at the CFDAs? Swoon. All we can say about RiRi: #goals.

Read on as we #crush on everything beauty from Rihanna…


Rihanna can rock any makeup trend, even blue and green lipstick! But we LOVE when she’s looking glam in a classic, dark lip. Celeb makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, has used Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32) in Glastonberry on Rihanna to create those signature vampy lips. For a flawless complexion, at this year’s VMAs, Rihanna wore Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation ($60), which stayed put through all four of her knockout performances! And for that coveted glow, Rihanna uses Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Base ($42). For more on Rihanna’s fierce makeup looks, follow her makeup artist Mylah Morales, who spills on additional products she uses, like Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick ($20).


From the signature A-line bob of her “Umbrella” days to fire red and her most recent long, shiny, black locks, Rihanna is truly a hair chameleon. Celeb hairstylists Ursula Stephen and Yusef Williams have had the privilege of creating some of Rihanna’s signature looks; Yusef says he keeps her mane healthy with MOP Mixed Greens Leave-in Conditioner ($26).


The way she dances, there’s no mystery how she maintains a perfect body. Rihanna has two –two- personal trainers and pretty much eats anything, in moderation of course. We’re convinced she was born with the genetic make up of a goddess.
