There’s no denying it: Rihanna’s slayin’ the makeup game. She single-handedly made Fenty Beauty the gold standard when it comes to shade range, redefined summer makeup with the metallic party of a collection cleverly named ‘Beach, Please!’, made body highlighters a going-out staple and recently launched a bunch of eye products including the Moroccan Spice eyeshadow palette with colours that make us dream of sultry nights dancing until last call.
RiRi’s been busy, and yet the woman never steps out without a gorgeous glow. Sorcery? Maybe. But she’s also got Fenty Beauty’s Global Artist Hector Espinal on her glam squad. He touched down in KL to chat with #TeamCLEO and luckily for us, he was all too happy to spill some beauty secrets. Read on to find out!
The Fenty Face
“The Fenty Face is like a stamp that Rihanna wears every day. It’s a beautiful, soft matte base and a little highlight. Creating the Beach Please look uses the Rihanna highlighting technique.
Using the Cheek Hugging Brush, sweep the cheek colour from the lids up into the temples and then from the cheeks to the temples so we get a beautiful sunrise vibe. It gives more of a lifting effect.
Then put a wash of colour on the lips. It shouldn’t look or feel heavy. It should look free and flowy.”
