Rihanna’s Skin Secrets—Revealed
“We get straight to glam—it’s no-nonsense, we don’t have time for that,” said face painter Mylah Morales of last night’s Met Gala makeup session with Rihanna. One thing the duo always squeezes in, however, is skincare. Our editors describe Rihanna’s complexion as “marble-like,” “flawless,” and “impossibly perfect,” so we asked Morales to spill her secrets: “I prepped with VBeauté Buying Time moisturizer and finished with Undercover Agent serum.” Next came concealer, lightweight foundation, bronzer, and highlighter down the nose, across the chin, and tapped onto cheekbones. “I went for clean lines with her brows and created a really subtle, taupe-y eye,” she explained. For definition, Morales employed MAC Pro Longwear Eye Liner in Definedly Black, finishing with a strip of false lashes. “I decided to go really pale with the lips because I didn’t want them to look too edgy,” she noted. While we always look to RiRi to take risks (emerald lipstick, anyone?), we fully enjoyed her sweet—and dare we say it, subtle—sugarplum pout and matching nails. Plus, her hair spurred visions of nineties TLC dancing round in our heads once we finally nestled into our snug, Style.com beds.
