The Rihanna Way to Wear Pastel Makeup (Hint: It’s Sexy)
When we feel the need to shake up our go-to hair and makeup there are a few places we like to turn for guaranteed inspiration. The runway is rife with out-of-the-box looks, of course, but certain celebrities are great for sparking new ideas, too. Top of the list? Rihanna. The Barbadian singer, fragrance guru and fashion designer, has shown us how to rep everything from voluminous red curls to tangerine lips. Ever the beauty chameleon, she's always changing it up, which a) keeps us on our toes, and b) provides a tonne of inspo.
Rihanna's latest lesson? How to wear pastel eyeshadow like a cool-girl. Peep her makeup look at the Brit Awards below.
Teaming a pretty lilac shadow (like Bobbi Brown's Eye Shadow, $42, in Cornflower) with a slick of feline liquid liner means the pastel shade takes on an edgy quality. We also love the addition of a slightly frosty neutral lip—MAC's Lipstick, $36, in Gossamer Wing, is a perfect dupe. No demure wallflowers here!
