Celeb Look: Matte Fuschia Lips

Rihanna's known for her edgy 80's inspired style, and when you have such gorgeous features why the hell not play them up? If you fancy your lips as your best facial feature, this look is definitely for you. This is not one for shy wallflowers. If you try this, I'm sure you'll stand out at the club.

One of the reasons why Rihanna can pull this off is because her face is flawless. That translates to a perfect application of matte foundation, a light dusting of bronzer, concealer under the eyes, and finely shaped brows. Her shadow is neutral taupe, which offsets the winged liner perfectly. Instead of traditional black, she uses navy liner on both her upper and lower lashlines. The focal point is her voluptuous fuschia mouth that's done in a matte finish.

Get Rihanna's look:
1. Apply a matte foundation and dust transculent powder over your T-zone.
2. Lightly dust a matte bronzer underneath your cheekbones for a sculpted look.
3. Apply a taupe eyeshadow to your lids. Look for a matte finish.
4. Apply a vanilla shadow on your browbone and inner coners.
5. Smudge a mink brown shadow into your creases, using a brush to blend.
6. Line your eyes with a kohl pencil in a cobalt blue. As you go out, your line should get thicker. Wing out the liner slightly at an angle. Now line underneath your bottom lashline, and make sure no skin shows through. Connect it to the wing you created.
7. Curl lashes and apply two coats of a volumizing black mascara.
8. Apply concealer underneath your eyes and blend outward and upward.
9. Line your lips with a fuschia lip pencil and fill in your lips with it as well. This will help the lipstick last longer.
10. For a precise application, use a lip brush to apply a matte fuschia lipstick. Blot once, then reapply.
11. Put a tiny bit of vanilla eyeshadow in your cupid's bow to make your lips pop.
12. Rihanna chose to part her hair on the side and flat iron it, letting her bangs fall into her eyes.
