How to score Rihanna’s haute holiday look

Published

on

‘It’s craaaaaazy!”

That’s Jeremy Scott’s description of Rihanna’s unique and seemingly effortless ability to inhabit different looks. “She can do so much more than a model. She can make something electric.”

RiRi’s high-voltage makeup artist of more than a decade, Mylah Morales, helps generate the high-wattage style. The two have worked together since the Barbadian artist’s debut album and video, crafting arresting beauty. “We’re able to create new and innovative looks every single time,” Morales tells Alexa. “It’s great to be able to experiment and be a trendsetter.”

She’s so close to the star that they finish each other’s sentences, and each look reflects their close collaboration. And now you can expect to see even more of Morales’ magic. She’s repped
by Rihanna’s recently launched Los Angeles-based beauty and stylist agency, Fr8me, whose other clients include hair pro Marcia Hamilton and costume designer Oscar Lima.

Morales got her start painting faces at MAC and Make Up For Ever makeup counters in Los Angeles. She realized it could be a career, found an agent, and the rest is cosmetics history.

One of our favorite collaborations is the rosy statement that Ri, Dior’s first black spokesperson, rocked at the house’s spring 2016 show in Paris. A flirty version of nude makeup, it combined a cat eye with defined brows and a matte pink pout.

Morales envisions a jewel-toned holiday variation on it for Alexa readers, using rich shades like sapphire, emerald, ruby or amethyst for lips and eyes, in varying finishes. “I see matte on the lips,” she says, “and a sheen on the eyes.”

First, apply foundation, concealer, powder and blush, and maybe even highlighter. “It gives you a nice canvas to start with and then you can go and play with your lips and everything else,” she explains.

Brows should be brushed and filled in and false eyelashes are a given — Rihanna would never dream of hitting the red carpet without them. “If you’re going to do it, do it big!” exclaims Morales. “You’ll want to apply a liquid liner to conceal the glue.”

For added sparkle, Morales would swipe a glitter pen just above the regular eyeliner.

The key to polished perfection? Blend, blend and blend some more with the appropriate brushes. “Right now there are all these YouTubers and Instagrammers doing tutorials and it’s too much makeup. It’s like 10 times the Kardashians; it’s cake face,” says Morales. “If you’re going to wear a smoky eye, it has to be very well blended. Relax and take your time.”

“Nars lashes are really great quality.” “Numéro 1” eyelashes, $20 at narscosmetics.com

Rihanna’s make-up brand, Fenty Beauty, will soon be sold in Saudi Arabia. According to RiRi’s official Twitter account, the brand will launch in Saudi on 19 April in Sephora stores.

Rihanna shared on her Instagram account: “I’m so happy to announce that @FentyBeauty is coming to Saudi Arabia on April 19th!! #SephoraMiddleEast.”

This follows successful launches across other Middle Eastern countries, including the UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

It seems that people in Saudi Arabia are excited for the launch, with users tweeting back to say, “Waiting for you bae,” “Welcome!” and “You are seriously the best Rihanna Saudi Arabia will be very thankful.”

It’s no wonder that Fenty is proving popular with women all over the world, having launched with a huge range of shades to try and match to most skin tones. Last year Rihanna told Time that it was important “that every woman felt included in this brand. We are all so different, with our own unique skin tones, so we started with the 40 foundation shades out the gate.”

This news coincides with the hype surrounding Body Lava, which was named as one of Time’s best inventions of 2017. The product sold out straight after launch, and is already on its way to cult beauty product status.
