How-To: Rihanna's Fashion-Forward Holiday Look

Rihanna arrived at the VEVO launch event looking stunning as usual (speaking of stunning, did you see this interesting look on Victoria Beckham?).

  • Start by waterlining your upper and lower rims with black eyeliner. Then sweep a taupe shadow, like BareMinerals Glimmer Eyeshadow in Queen Phyllis ($13), from lashline to crease.
  • Apply a chunky gold liner, like Shu Uemura Painting Liner in Gold ($24), under your lower lashline. Then, draw a straight line across your upper lashline using a black eyeliner.
  • Use your blush (see my suggestion below) as a brow highlighter, sweeping it lightly from the crease to your brow bone. Finish with a few coats of black mascara on your upper lashes.
