Celebrity Makeup Spotlight: Rihanna Rocking Bright Lips in Hard Music Video

Spotted! Rihanna rocking 4 different shades of lipsticks in her latest music video, Hard. Although I’m not a huge fan of the song nor the military theme or the so-called clothes” she’s wearing, I gotta say that girl’s at least got her makeup right!

Look #1: To get Riri’s glossy red lips, try L’oreal Infalliable Plumping Lip Gloss in Plumped Red.


Look #2: Rihanna is looking super fierce in her signature dark burgundy lipstick and aviator shades. Try Yves Saint Laurent Sheer Lipstick SPF 15 in #33 Wild Blackberry for a similar look.



Look #3: Metallic gold lipstick has never been my thing but it does go well with Rihanna’s spunky eye makeup and outfit here. Product to try: IMAN Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Saffron.



Look #4: This is my favorite look out of the four. Pairing a mauvy pink lipstick with lots and lots of lashes gives her a cute, innocent vibe. To get Riri’s lip color here, try MAC Up The Amp Lipstick.
