At the 2015 BET Award, Rihanna stood out for many reasons, one being her upholding the bad girl reputation and previewing a taste of her “B**** Better Have My Money” music video. Ri Ri won us over with her perfectly glowing, bronzed look and sleek ponytail. Her look was subtle and classy and we have the breakdown on how to #GETTHELOOK!
Slicked Back Ponytail:
Straighten your hair with a flat iron for super, sleek hair. Brush straightened hair back and tie into a ponytail with elastic. Use a small section of hair to wrap around the elastic. Finish off with an oil treatment to give the sleek look and to tame frizz and flyaways. We suggest Bio Ionic’s Agave Healing Oil Treatment. With its non-greasy, lightweight formula, it is ideal for all hair types.
Glowing, Bronzed Makeup Look:
Rihanna’s glowing skin looks #FLAWLESS. The secret? Mix in a few drops of a liquid bronzer with your foundation. It’s suggested to use a sponge applicator to apply the mixture to your face. Allow it to dry and create a subtle contour with just the bronzer. Apply it to your hairline, hallows of cheeks, jawline and on both sides of the nose. Set the face with translucent finishing powder. Can’t locate a liquid bronzer? Try Youngblood’s Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint. It glides on smoothly for a dewy finish leaving you with a glowing look. Our favorite translucent powder at the moment is Glo Minerals Protecting Powder SPF 30. With double functionality, it can be worn with or without foundation.
For the nude lips, trace and fill in lips with a nude lip liner. Pick one with a matte finish. Then use a slightly lighter shade of nude lipstick to dab on center of the lips and feather outward. This will help lips appear fuller.
Rihanna’s brows were perfect. To fill them in properly, try brushing eyebrow hairs down to see where you need to fill in with a brow pencil. After filling in the gaps, even out the product by brushing hair back into place. Set brows with a clear brow gel so that it lasts all night.
Sultry eyes. There’s no other way to describe hers! She used bronze eyeshadow on the lids and shaped it with a liquid eyeliner. After applying the eye shadow, trace the upper lash line. Draw a straight line across and create a wing at the outer corner to avoid an almond-shaped curve.
