Rihanna has won over millions of fans with her catchy tunes and distinctive voice. The singer has an attention-grabbing style all her own, and we don’t just mean vocally. A fashionably fierce trendsetter, Rihanna recently stepped out at an event looking the picture of Old Hollywood glamour. Find out how to score the sexy singer’s look for yourself.

Whether or not you are blessed with a bone structure like Rihanna’s, you can fake the look with some clever contouring. Start by applying primer and foundation to the entire face. Next, use a bronzer in a shade that is one or two levels deeper than your natural color to contour the planes of your face. Follow this up with a sweep of blush, also in a bronze hue, applied primarily to the apples of the cheeks. Blend the blush carefully into the bronzer, to eliminate harsh lines.

To get Rihanna's cat eye, apply a shimmering soft copper from lash line to brow line, layering the shadow so that it becomes lighter and softer the higher you go. Use your favorite black liquid liner to line the eye, drawing it as close to the lash line as possible, and creating a small wing on the outer corner. The trick here is not to make the wing too dramatic, in order to maintain that old-school vibe. Finish the eyes with two coats of defining mascara.

Full, red lips amplify the glamor of this look. To get a pout like Ri-Ri’s, you’ll need a creamy lipstick in a red or berry shade, a matching lip liner, and a thin lip brush. Begin by lining the outside of your lips and then filling them in with the lip liner. Next, use the lip brush to paint your lips with the lipstick of your choice. The lip brush will allow for a more precise application, and will go a long way toward making your lip color last.

Rihanna’s elegant hairdo is easy to achieve. Begin by coating damp strands with an anti-frizz serum, and then blow dry using a round brush. Use a wide-barreled curling iron to curl two-inch sections of hair, until the entire head has been done. Rihanna has a shaved portion of hair that creates an asymmetrical look, but you can fake it by pushing the hair back on one side of your head, pinning it into place with some strategically placed bobby pins. Mist strands with a shine spray to get glossy, lustrous locks.

Oh yay, she looks so pretty. I really like that lip color on her. I don't know how I feel with it paired with the copper, but she still looks beautiful. This comment has been removed.
