Fashion icon, actress, singer, Rihanna, has made her mark on the beauty industry with the launch of her own makeup line. All September long, the beauty sphere has been cheering for Fenty Beauty. Makeup obsessed shoppers can't stop talking about Rihanna's release of 40 shades of foundation. They have also just been going straight batshit for her highlighters.
The Fenty Face comes down to great skin and a banging highlight. We are so here for it. Should you run into trouble getting your hands on their products, you can still get the Fenty Face without one product from Fenty. Here's how:
Fenty Beauty's primer is all about giving the skin a natural radiance while blurring pores. To get the look of the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer you can use a blurring primer on your problem areas, such as deep set smile lines and pores on your nose, while applying a radiant primer on the rest of your face. Two primers -so extra, right? No. It is how I begin my makeup and how I make sure my whole face still looks good by the end of the day. These primers have a similar finish to Fenty's.
Think of Rihanna's most iconic looks. Her skin is always poppin'. She never looks cakey and heavy. Just blessed with skin that is naturally bomb af. It is the same with Fenty's Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Soft matte, demi-matte, satin, whatever name you give it, there is one conclusion. Skin that is effortlessly beautiful. In Ri Ri's own words, "I want it to look like perfect skin, not like makeup on skin."
Glow To The Gawds
Trophy Wife. The highlight that has stopped the hearts of beam queens coast to coast. Fenty's Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters and Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks are a wardrobe for your face. Badgalriri said, "I like to look at these Shimmer Skinsticks like I look at my clothes in the closet. Am I doing fun? Am I doing alien? Am I doing weird? Am I doing sexy? Am I doing extra? Am I doing girl next door? You choose." (source). Rihanna can pull off any look. We've seen her look like a muñeca in her cupcake dress and like Morticia at the Diamond Ball. The key to the Fenty face highlight is FUN. Whatever you choose, let it pull your whole look, mood, and vibe together.
Blot On The Go
Those with oily skin were the first to notice that the launch of Fenty Beauty didn't include something they rely on to ensure their make up lasts: setting powder. Maybe that is because a powder look is not part of the fresh Fenty Face. The foundation also claims to be "undetectable" (source) and a powder is usually a dead give away that you have makeup on your face - apart from gilded eyes and these other trending fall looks. But some of us need a little blot throughout the day. Here are some products that are just as easy to throw in your bag to reduce shine as you clock out and head to happy hour.
