Celebrity Makeup Spotlight: Rihanna Rocks Dark Plum Lipstick

You have got to love Rihanna for always experimenting different makeup looks and actually looking good! Just yesterday, she was spotted wearing a dark plummy lipstick that reminds me of MAC Night Violet Mattene from the new Style Black collection. Not only does the color look totally hot on her, she wore it right by pairing it with just a bit of neutral eyeshadow and lots of mascara.



Lesson Here: Balance is key. When you do a dark lip, go easy on the eyes.

  1. I really love her lips and it’s totally wearable !
    Covergirl TruShine in Plum Shine with a hint of black looks a little like this

  2. I really don’t like her hair, it looks like a wad of fur. I think her hair could look better than that. The makeup’s good though!

  3. I must say that she looks an attractive with the dark red lipstick. It looks more amazing by amped up the blond streaks in her hair suits with dark lipsticks perfectly. Actually, I only wear darker lipstick, even though I have a fair complexion and blonde hair. I don’t really care about that.
