Rihanna Inspired Sultry Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial


Hi beauties  🙂

Hahah yes you’re right I’m back with another Rihanna Inspired tutorial 😛 sorry if “Rihanna” sounds repetitive & boring, but when I saw this picture of hers I wanted to do a recreation for it so badly so that I can share it with you all !

Following is the inspirational pic

Her eyes have been drawn out perfectly, and it’s a perfect blend of silver metallic grey and black. She’s wearing striking colors, but even then she looks feminine  😉 she’s wearing a nude orangish lip gloss and the face has been bronzed !

So let’s start with the tutorial 🙂

  • Step1:– Apply eye shadow base:-

I started by applying concealer and blended itall over the lid. Then I used a silver eye pencil, rubbed it on the tip of my finger and started blending it on my eyelid right from the inner corner. This way you don’t get harsh streaky lines of such pencils. The reason for using silver pencil is to create a sticky base for the “silver” eye shadow to come out beautifully.

  • Step2:– Apply Eyeshadow (silver & black):-

Then using a flat shading brush, pat some silver eye shadow (we need an eye shadow with metallic finish, try any silver shade you have, MAC electra can also be used) covering all the area where we applied silver pencil. Once you’re done with applying, gently blend that eye shadow (don’t rub it) and feather it out a bit. Now using the same brush,  pat some black eye shadow  on the outer edge of the eye and bringing the color inwards and joining with the silver eye shadow. Now using a crease brush gently blend out the edges, and pat some black eye shadow  (preferably MAC Carbon) onto your lower lid and smooth out with a blending brush.

Finally curl your lashes, use lots of mascara, and line your eyes with thin and defined strokes.

Rihanna’s definitely wearing False lashes on the outer edges, if you can try then you can even use single lashes on the outer edges to get the look 🙂
