One thing’s for sure, two things for certain: Rihanna is always worth the wait. The mother-of-the-navy and the mother-of-the-Fenty-babies made a little tardy but flashy and glamorous appearance at the MET Gala Red Carpet. One thing about Rih Rih is that she runs in her own time, granted, but she will always put a serious case to be the Belle of the ball. This year she did not disappoint and we can confidently say it was worth the wait.
Rihanna walked the red carpet sporting a triple XXL wedding dress, with a cape made of 500 petals. To match, she paired the look pair of playful white sunglasses decorated with false eyelashes over them.
However, it all went uphill when she removed the shades to reveal a cold and frosty but ethereal eye makeup look. As the founder of Fenty Beauty, it was only natural the ‘Diamonds’ singer was going to serve us a major full beat. It was also no surprise that her Fenty Beauty Global Makeup Artist, Priscilla Ono, was behind it all. For this special occasion, they decided to go for something fresh and fun, a look that would be sure to turn heads.
First up, the lips. It was all about that iconic Rihanna-red, a shade that could stop traffic. Priscilla used Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour in “Uncensored”, £24. to give that bold, vibrant look that contours around her cupids bow which is a world-renown in its own right.
But the real star of the show was, of course, the eyes. The high-shimmer, pearlescent eye makeup was out of this world. It was like a disco ball had delicately leaked all over her eyelids. Priscilla used the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in “Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal”, £29, to give that intense shimmer and the base colour was created using the Fenty Beauty Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette in True Neutrals, using the shade “Velvet Cuffs”, £24, to give her eyes some depth and dimension.
