How to Do Your Hair and Makeup Like Rihanna at the 2012 Grammys

Rihanna rocked the red carpet at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. The singer wore a revealing Armani gown that showed off her perfectly toned physique. The plunging neckline, thigh-high slit, and bare back had jaws dropping all night long. Also setting tongues wagging were her sultry waves and subtle makeup. Learn how to recreate this sexy look for yourself.

With such a show-stealing dress, it’s no wonder Rihanna opted for neutral tones on the face. Begin the makeup application with a lightweight liquid foundation, using a makeup sponge to blend evenly into the neck, and set with a sheer pressed powder.

Apply a bronze-colored shadow to the eyelids, and follow with a slightly darker shade in the crease of the eye. Smudge the shadow along the lower lash line as well. Use a lighter, champagne color to illuminate the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes. Next, take a fine-tipped brush and apply a thin line of black gel liner to the upper and lower lids. Extend the line past the outer corner of the eye, following the natural curve of the lower lash line, for a winged effect. Curl the lashes, and apply two coats of mascara.

This Barbados-native has a natural bronze glow. Use bronzer to fake a sun-kissed look like RiRi’s. Apply a pale-pink blush to the cheeks, and underneath the actual cheekbones. This will give the face definition, while still adding a hint of color. Finish by applying a nude-colored gloss to the lips.

For messy curls like Rihanna’s, begin by misting hair with a heat protectant spray. Take a half-inch curling iron and wrap small pieces of hair around the barrel, holding in place for about five to ten seconds before releasing. This look is meant to be casual, so imperfect curls are desired. Start with the bangs, and continue with pieces that frame the face, before moving on to the back of the head. Girls with naturally curly hair can skip styling the bottom section; those who have straight hair should curl the entire head. Once all the hair has been curled, use a firm-hold hairspray to lock the look in place.

I thought Rihanna's makeup was great, but I really wasn't a fan of that hair. I like her as a redhead better! This comment has been removed.
