It came as no surprise to anyone that Rihanna reigned supreme at the 2015 Met Gala. YouBeauty expert Julie Ricevuto dished to Star about which (cheap!) products can help you replicate RiRi’s rockin’ beauty look at home!
Cleanliness is Next to Godliness
Suki exfoliate foaming cleanser: In order to get a flawless makeup application, starting with impeccably smooth skin is an absolute must. Mimic Rihanna’s blemish-free, porcelain-like skin with suki exfoliate foaming cleanser ($32.95). The foaming cleanser will clean your skin while removing buildup for a more even complexion.
Fake a Flawless Complexion
Jane iredale PurePressed Base in Autumn: Once skin has been cleansed and prepped, ensure a camera-ready appearance with jane iredale PurePressed Base in Autumn ($52). Dabble this semi-matte foundation onto your face lightly, starting from the center of your face and moving outward.
Go On, Be Cheeky
Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette: Rihanna’s flushed cheeks gave her an ultra-healthy glow. Copy her glistening cheeks by applying the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette ($32). First, dust a bit of blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Then, follow up by brushing on bronzer in the hollows of your cheekbones and a light dusting on your temples for a more sculpted look.
Learn Your Lines
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner: For Rihanna’s precisely drawn eyeliner, use a fine-tip brush to glide on the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner ($25) in a minor cat-eye formation, extending slightly beyond the outer corners of your eyes.
Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara: Finish off your Rihanna inspired look with a few swipes of Covergirl’s The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara ($6.85) to instantly pump up even the smallest lashes. Hello, gorgeous gaze!
