Rihanna Inspired Makeup Tutorial (Good Girl Gone Bad)


Post By Upasana,

Hii all !! I was just going around net for some inspirational images to make a celebrity inspired look , and i thought who else would be great for the look — RIHANNA !! I found this beautiful picture of her’s :-

So i decided to give it a go !! This eye look is quite bold — it’s a black-bronze-gold smokey look ( that is what i have figured out to use as the base colors ). Following is my version of her eye look !!

Step 1 :I cleansed my eyes so that there’s no trace of any stuff such as moisturiser , oil etc. In the following picture, Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve applied an eye shadow to make a base for the whole look , i have used a smoldered brown color with a bit of shimmer , you can use a soft matte brown shade too !

Step 2 :Then I used a black colored eye pencil and applied it all over my lid ( it doesn’t has to be neat because we’ll blend it )
Using a blending brush or your finger tip try to blend the eye pencil with the base color ( doing this would set the streaky eye pencil that we applied ). After blending , it looks more soft with no harsh lines and streaks !!

Step 3 :After applying black eye pencil & blending it , i dabbed on some black eyeshadow on top of it ( this will make a strong base and will set the cream pencil that we applied before ). After dabbing on some black eyeshadow push the same brush slightly outwards creating a slant line ( don’t put extra eyeshadow , just use what is left on your brush ).Now add some burgandy colored eyeshadow just above where your black eye shadow ends. Then i used a fluffy brush to blend that burgandy color so that it doesn’t look harsh and streaky !! this is how it looked like after blending :-

Step 4 :The final step would be to fill in your waterline with black kohl pencil ( kajal ) also apply it on the lower line of your eyes just and smudge it using your finger smoothly or a smudging brush , line your eyes with a black eyeliner and make a winged eye liner following your eyeshadow outer edge , use lots of mascara on both upper and lower lashes. And you get the finished look :-

    • Yeps…i actually got confused when i saw the finished look pic on top of Rihannas look in the final pic… ๐Ÿ™‚

      Do u like eye makeup Misha?

  1. really awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ :-)) ….. neatly done workkk :yes: :yes: … will try however sno so good in eye make-up ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ :-((

  2. Oh my Goodness…Upasna you are just soooo fantastic at re-creating looks…you are such a pro….hats off to you girl…by the way is Rihana your fav by any chance ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • hahaha its not that she’s my fav. :giggle: but yes she’s gorgeous & for someone like me i would definitely try her looks cause she supports a different makeup every now and then na :laugh: i like trying out new stuff ๐Ÿ˜› :blush: :blush:

      • I too try copying looks every now and then..but i do nothing like you…you are toh too much :worship: :worship: :snowman:

        • I sgree Mitra..and the best part is that she does this with limited resources…and someone like me who has so many resources doesnt do a thing…m so lazy… ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • I sail in the same boat as you….i have more than 400 eye \ shadows..but have no clue what to do with them…i keep using the same ones over and again..time to experiment i guess…

            • wow! more than 400??? Thats amazing Mits!!

              I dont have that many e/s but i hoard blushes..when i was in Blore others wud also use e/s and put makeup so I had also started and had learnt quite a bit..but after returning t Pune it all went awry..No1 here wears much makeup and stare and snicker if someone else does…so i feel really conscious and avoid using them… ๐Ÿ™ I wish there was a separate country for make-up gals!

    • well seriously i didn’t thought i’d be matching with her makeup at ny point :idk: i just gave it a try and the eyeshades i chose were so random :disdain: i never knew they would work so great ๐Ÿ˜› all i did was tried O:-) :blush: you should also try when your free ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. @ Zara i totally love eye makeup…..i love doing smokey eyes ๐Ÿ™‚
