How to Channel Rihanna on Your Wedding Day
Searching for a hair and makeup look that's not so bridal? See how our makeup artists and hairstylists put a wedding-worthy twist on one of the superstar's best beauty looks.
There's so much big-day beauty inspiration out there, but if you're the type of bride who wants something a little nontraditional, then you're probably struggling to find a look that speaks to you. Do you consider Rihanna your beauty icon? Then you're in luck. Our friends at Facetime Beauty helped us recreate one of the star's most eye-catching looks, and you may be surprised by just how wedding-worthy the superstar's signature style can be.
Who doesn't remember Rihanna's 2014 Met Gala look? From her white crop top and skirt to her gathered updo, the singer gave off some unexpected bridal vibes. While few brides will want to wear such an edgy dress down the aisle, many turn to Rihanna's beauty look for inspiration. When the team at Facetime Beauty saw this photo, they were excited to give it a bridal makeover.
Like Rihanna, our model received a bold cat eye, subtle contouring and blush, and glossy, frosted lips. To make her look a little more wedding appropriate, the makeup artists used a shimmery purple eyeshadow for a softer take on a smoky eye, and chose a pinker lip color as opposed to Rihanna's more nude shade.
As for her hair, the team at Facetime Beauty kept things simple with a slicked-back updo. The stylist wrapped undone sections of hair around a curling iron for extra body, then completed the look with a simple headband from Gabriella New York, a nod to Rihanna's own sparkly hair accessory.
Watch the entire look come to life above, and stay tuned for more celebrity-inspired beauty looks from our brand-new First Look series.
