Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Rihanna on Good Morning America

November 8, 2009

Earlier this week, singer Rihanna finally opened up to Diane Sawyer on “Good Morning America” about what happened between her and ex-bf Chris Brown.

While I applaud her for finally taking the courage to talk about the tragic event in front of the camera, I also have to give props to her makeup artist for doing such a good job.

To play up Rihanna’s gorgeous eyes, a warm, taupe-colored eyeshadow on the upper lid was contrasted by a pop of lime green on the lower lid. Both upper and bottom lashlines were rimmed with black liner and the look was finished with black mascara on both top and bottom.

To recreate Rihanna’s perfect nude lips, follow this tip by celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine.

“To achieve a nude lip on a women of color, you have to first consider the color nude like you would lingerie – nude on olive skin tone does not translate as nude for someone with darker skin tone. The same rule applies for nude lips. Start by filling in lips with a lip liner and feathering it in towards the center of the mouth. Apply a nude lipstick over the entire mouth then finish by adding a golden gloss to the center of the mouth for dimension and shine.”

Did any of you see the interview? What did you think?
