Rihanna Week - Look Two

As always, i have just used this picture of Rihanna as inspiration, so if my look doesn't look exactly like hers, you dont need to tell me! And remember you dont need to go out and buy what i have used to achieve this look, just improvise with what you have :)

The first look i am attempting is a nude lid, with black liner and blue along the lower lash line :)

Start by creating a base. I've used painterly paint pot because it covers up any veins you can see through the skin

with a fluffy brush, sweep a light shimmery champagne colour over the lid. You want the shimmer to come out more than the colour so apply it very lightly

Line your upper lash line with a liquid liner and flick it out slightly to the edge

then line the waterline with a kohl liner and join the two lines together at the tear duct

using a wet eye shadow brush, apply a single line of blue shadow along the lower lash line

This is the brush i used, just to give you an idea :) obviously, if you have an angled eye liner brush, that would work too

Apply mascara, i only applied mine to the top lashed so that the blue stands out on its own along the bottom

Taa Daa :) All done :)
