Who doesn’t want skin like Rihanna’s? The 34 year old mother-to-be is absolutely flawless and stuns us with her beauty each and every time she steps out in public.
The launch of Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin have certainly brought us one step closer to achieving Rih’s luminous glow, but now we also have her trusted makeup artist sharing all the details on how she gets it done.
In an interview with Oprah Daily, Priscilla Ono shared, “If you properly prep with a few strategic skincare products, you won’t need a lot of makeup.” Read more as the makeup artist shares her tips for achieving a radiant glow below!
Begin your skincare routine with a gentle cleanser.
Ono shares that even the simple act of washing your face with the right cleanser can reveal brighter, and more hydrated looking skin. “One thing Rihanna hates when she washes her face and her skin feels dry and tight afterward.” Using a cleanser that’s gentle, yet moisturizing, will ensure that the skin has the hydration it needs to achieve that natural glow.
Regular exfoliation is essential.
Say goodbye to dull skin! Exfoliating on a regular basis removes the dead layer of skin, allowing it to appear more radiant by assisting in cell turnover and rejuvenation. Ono likes to employ a chemical and physical exfoliant to get this done so she reaches for the Fenty Skin Pre-Show Glow which combines glycolic acid, citric acid, and lactic acid with a handheld cloth to gently buff and refine the skin.
Assess your skin needs.
Hydration is definitely essential when striving to achieve radiant skin but you want to be mindful about how much hydration you’re tacking on and where. For areas that tend to be more dry, reach for oils, creams and serums. But for spots that tend to be more oily, keep the extra moisture at bay. “Rihanna, for instance, has more dry patches on her forehead and cheeks, but I’ve noticed she gets oily around her nose. I only put moisturizer onto the areas that are dry.”
Let your skin shine with concealer and skin tint.
“Your skin is prepped and gorgeous, so don’t cover it up with a ton of foundation. You want something that’s going to even out your skin tone but not overwhelm your face.” Ono recommends reaching for a light skin tint to give your face an even complexion of color, and concealer to cover up darker areas like under the eyes or blemishes.
And top the look off with these necessities.
A radiant glow requires three more products: cream bronzer, blush and highlighter. Ono applies these products by reaching for a beauty sponge, or simply using her fingertips. “Put a little bronzer onto your sponge to stipple it on your cheekbones, forehead, and around the jawline.” Proceed by flipping the sponge, dipping it into your blush and buffing it onto the apples of your cheeks.
As for highlighter, use your fingertips to smooth it onto the area above your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your brow bone, and dab it onto the center of your forehead and chin.
And voila! You've achieved Rihanna's illustrious glow!
