Somehow everything Rihanna does feels like a breath of fresh air. From the star’s reimagining of pregnancy style to her cosmetics and music ventures, there’s seemingly nothing she can’t do. The latest trend we’ve noticed Rihanna dawning is matching her eye look to her outfit — which makes a case for colorful eyeliners above the mask and experimentative makeup choices that complement your day-to-day outfits. And it should come as no surprise that this decision is rather calculated.
“Our makeup inspiration always comes from fashion first,” Priscilla Ono, the makeup artist responsible for many Rihanna or Fenty Beauty looks, told Vogue. “Depending on the look we can then decide on the style of makeup. Whether it be a classic or modern style. Then when it comes to color, we love either a complementing shade (opposite attracting colors like on a color wheel) or monochromatic which is one of our favorites as you can tell.”
Of course, years spent sporting masks have made many of us eager to dress up the eye a bit, but the Barbadian-princess’s approach to beauty has reenergized us to keep up the fun. (That and Euphoria of course!) Ready to try the trend for yourself? We’ve gathered four instances when Rihanna has found the ideal harmony between fashion and beauty.
