Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Rihanna at 2010 Clive Davis Pre-Grammys Party


Rihanna wowed the crowd again with an ethereal glowy look at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards Salute To Icons party last Saturday. Read on to find out what celebrity makeup artist Mylah Morales used to create her look!

“It’s really important to me to make Rihanna look like she’s glowing, like she just stepped off the beach,” said Mylah about Rihanna’s look.

Products Used On Rihanna:

* NARS D. Gorgeous Single Eyeshadow from Spring 2010 collection
* NARS Casino Bronzing Powder
* NARS Orgasm Illuminator
* NARS Barbarella Lipstick
* NARS Ophelia Lip Gloss from Spring 2010 collection

I checked out the new NARS spring collection over the weekend and D. Gorgeous is a muted pink color. Mylah must have used it as a wash on her eyelid and added another color on top. I will do my very own FOTD of this look shortly!

  1. love the make up
    but why it looks like her foundation doesnt match her skin colour on her neck on the 1st photo?

  2. Her makeup is pretty but her hair looks like she let Pauly from Jersey Shore do it. I’m pretty sure he gave Michael Cera the same look.

  3. her makeup doesn’t match her skin! I hate when they try to lighten or change people’s skin color with makeup. i own all of those products except for the eyeshadow and i do have to say they are all amazing!
