Rihanna’s Pope-inspired Met Gala beauty

How to steal the singer and co-host’s heavenly beauty look…

Rihanna did not disappoint at this years Met Gala, boldy parading her Pope-inspired Maison Margiela dress, robe and Papal Mitre-style hat.


The co-host of the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination themed event chose to highlight her eccentric look using makeup from her own beauty line, Fenty.

Fenty by Rihanna Global Makeup Artist, Priscilla Ono, shares her tips on perfecting the look she created on Rihanna today.

Ace that base:

Ono started with Pro Filt’r Retouch Primer to prep skin, helping avoid shine throughout the evening and promote longevity for her makeup base. Ono then applied a matte foundation, and defined and contoured Rihanna’s features using Match Stix Matte Skinstick in Truffle, a deeper shade than her natural skin tone. Ono then used a blotting powder, applied to the t-zone to help avoid excess shine and create the allure of a matte, filtered finish.

On lips, Rihanna wore Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Spanked with a touch of shimmer gloss layered on top.
