Double Take: 2012 VMA Rhianna’s Red Carpet Look (Rock Lips 2 Ways)

10 Sep

There are very little “misses” when it comes to Island beauty Rhianna’s makeup choices. This classic red lip and lush lashes plays up the singer’s unique features flawlessly. Little moderations have been made to modernize this “pin up” inspired look as well, so I took the liberty of making my own little tweak to make it my own.

To start, I “closed off” the eyes by tight-lining my upper and lower waterline using a black khol pencil instead of going for the wide-eyed effect with using white or cream eyeliner. Secondly, I opted for a cranberry toned, glossy lip color instead of the matte true red or red orange shade seen worn by Rhianna.

Either way, I wanted to stay true to the spirit of this look and kept the flawless, glowy skin, shimmery, golden tinted lids, bold liner/ lashes and passionate pout. Check out how I rocked out this look!

    A more of a orange-hued red like MAC “Morange” or “Dangerous” – ( which obviouisly wasnt out yet) or NARS Red Square Matte pencil would have made the look identical. Just found your site via google , you have some cool looks !
