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?). Rihanna's festive gold sparkle eye shadow and coordinating bold cranberry lip isflattering on almost anybody with neutral or warm undertones, and it's modern without losing its fun factor. To find out how to get the look, just read more.


  • 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.

I think she is a beautiful woman regardless of her hair. The cut and color aren't *my* taste, but clearly she like it, so that's all that matters.

What is with that hair? What would you call that... a reverse mullet? It makes her look like a seven year old boy who's trying to look punk. I didn't know she had that birthmark either, it looks super sexy. They say it's cranberry lipstick but that looks like magenta to me... not a fan of that. Love the eyes!

I keep thinking I'll like at least one of her hairstyles, but haven't seen it yet. I'm not much for short hair though.

She can be such a beautiful woman if she would let her hair grow.

Tired of Rhianna posts. I know this is a beauty blog, but she honestly lives day by day just so she can try a different lipstick. She's boring, not innovative.

That lip color reminds me a bit of NARS Funny Face. :D Might give it another try now!
