Rihanna’s ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look Requires 5 Products and Takes Less Than 5 Minutes
As we continue to social distance there are a few things that are taking a back seat in the name of comfort — jeans, bras, and our heat styling tools to name a few. While a full face of makeup is also certainly not high on our current to-do list, Zoom meetings, FaceTime dates, and the occasional WFH selfie might inspire us to flick on some mascara and throw on a dash of concealer as needed. And naturally, Rihanna being Rihanna sensed that the world needed a “no makeup” makeup look right now, so she blessed us with this fuss-free Summer Fenty Face tutorial that will help you look put together in five minutes or less.
The highly entertaining YouTube video walks us through Rihanna’s go-to summer look, which, according to her, will have you looking instantly “beach ready or booty call ready” — or in our case, work-from-home-ready. The entire process takes her less than five minutes to apply and only requires five Fenty Beauty by Rihanna products: The Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer, applied with the Sculpting Bronzer Brush, the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush, the Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer, and the Full Frontal Volume Lift & Curl Mascara. The result is a fuss-free, glow-inducing look that is probably what Beyonce had in mind when she said “I woke up like this.”
To achieve the Rihanna-approved look at home, start by using Fenty Beauty’s new Cheeks Out Collection, namely its new Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer. Available in seven sun-kissed hues, Rihanna suggests applying the lightweight cream formula with the Sculpting Bronzer Brush to your cheekbones, forehead, and jawline for a natural contoured look. Rihanna achieves this by “pouring [the bronzer] into her foundation” and the finish is so flawless, it’s like she’s not wearing makeup at all. Follow the cream bronzer by applying Fenty Beauty’s Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush to your cheekbones — the melt-in-your-skin formula is available in ten pretty shades and will give you the perfect flush. Rihanna’s favorite shades? The baby pink Petal Poppin hue and Summertime Wine’s shimmery berry shade. She even shows us how her bright purple Drama Class formula looks intense in the compact but gorgeous once applied to her skin — and she swears it works for all skin tones. To finish, Rihanna dabs her lips with the Summertime Wine Cream Blush formula (these products are truly versatile), swipes on some lip gloss, and adds a coat of Fenty’s best-selling Full Frontal Volume Lift & Curl Mascara. Voila.
