GET HER GLOW
Not wasting any time, the first tidbit on our list was finding out what magic potion is needed to master Rihanna’s out-of-this world luminosity. Turns out, it only takes three simple steps to look as flawless as the Work singer.
“The ‘Fenty face’ is Rihanna’s real-life, universal method for a glowing and defined complexion,” Ono explains.
“The first step is to apply her Pro Filt’r Soft Matte foundation to get a flawless, soft matte base. I recommend applying it over a primer, which smooths your skin for better foundation application and longer wear, and using the Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110 for the most even and natural-looking application," says Ono.
“She’ll also use Pro Filt’r Concealer to brighten her under eye and conceal any specific areas that might need a little more coverage, and then the second step is to add dimension and colour.
“First she contours to add dimension with the Matte Match Stix Skinsticks or Cheeks Out Cream Bronzer. Then she adds a colour with Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter or Cheeks Out Cream Blush.”
“I can do a full face using just the Match Stix," Ono says. "You can use the matte shades as contour or concealer and the shimmer shades for blush, eyeshadow, lip, whatever you want."
But when she's using more than just Match Stix, RiRi’s very last step for sun-kissed skin is “to remove shine and set her makeup using Invisimatte Blotting Powder. It has a translucent finish, so Rihanna also uses it for touch-ups throughout the day.”
MAKEUP THAT LASTS
Like Rihanna, Australians are used to standing under a harsh spotlight. For us, it’s the sun.
And come time for summer, Ono agrees our skin is “more prone to sweat”, but she knows exactly how to stay feeling fresh, sans the sweat.
“I recommend always starting with a primer so your makeup lasts longer,” she tells us.
“I like to use foundation with a soft matte finish that counterbalances oily skin, and of course you want to look for a sweat and humidity-resistant foundation like Pro Filt’r to set your makeup and remove excess shine with [a blotting] powder.”
