Rihanna’s new music video for “Where Have You Been” debuted this week, and the pop star experimented with some bold beauty looks for the clip. The person behind her tribal-inspired style is star makeup artist Kabuki, who recently honed his music video makeup skills on the set of “E.T.” by Katy Perry. “I wanted to feel the heat of that environment,” Kabuki told of the jungle setting Rihanna created for the video. “I used golds and coppers and reds to keep that feeling. I wanted to give Rihanna’s look a slight tribal nod while keeping things young and sexy.” And that’s not all! Click through the gallery for more behind-the-scenes makeup details from Kabuki.
