Rihanna — singer, makeup mogul, and our all-time favorite beauty vlogger. The multi-hyphenate recently posted a tutorial to YouTube in which she uses only two products from Fenty Beauty‘s holiday collection to create a full face of makeup. And when Rihanna is spilling deets on anything related to beauty, you better believe we’re paying attention.
In the video, she describes her shimmery purple-and-blue look — which can be achieved with the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette and Frosted Metal Lip Set — as «really icy and celebratory and ready for the holidays.»
The 7-pan highlighter palette is the true hero product of Rihanna’s step-by-step tutorial, and she uses it pretty much everywhere. «You can use it on your cheeks, you can use it on your eyes — it’s such a flexible product,» she says, before dusting herself all over with it. «It’s just nice to play.»
She starts with the Stone Cold highlighter, and dusts it along the crease of her lid. «It’s not too much drama, but it’s still drama,» she says of the look. Next, she uses the bright white Chillz shade on the inner corners of her eyes, and takes Subzero on the outside of her eyes to get a little definition. She draws a slanted line from the outside of her eye into the center, then fills in the middle with shadow, and applies a line of Subzero under her eye for some added drama. «It has like a nice blue and purple combination, so it works really really nicely of whatever color you put in,» she says of the electric blue color.
She then applies Scandal’ice to the high points of her cheeks to give them a luminescent pink tint, and also uses it to highlight the tops of her ears. And, as if this palette didn’t already seem multi-purpose enough, she also takes Stone Cold and dusts it along her collarbone for a little extra highlight.
Ri finishes the look with the No Chill shade from her Metal Lip Set, a metallic purple that compliments her lavender lids perfectly. Considering the holidays are only a few short months away, it’s time to get purchasing — and practicing!
