How to Recreate Rihanna’s Golden Glow From the London ‘Ocean’s 8’ Premiere

We’ve been thoroughly invested in Rihanna’s red carpet makeup for years. We’re especially excited because this is Rihanna’s first huge international press tour since launching Fenty Beauty last year. So, needless to say, we’re following her red carpet looks very closely.

At the London premiere of the highly anticipated movie ‘Ocean’s 8’ this week, Rihanna hit the red carpet rocking a slicked back topknot, with a soft gold smokey eye (to match her earrings and her dress) and crimson lip look that her makeup artist Priscilla Ono aptly described as “royal red.  Her makeup was done by Priscilla Ono, Fenty Beauty’s Global Makeup Artist, who shared every single product she used.

To create the perfectly defined pout, the Fenty Beauty global makeup artist lined and filled in RiRi’s lips with the brand’s Mattemosielle Plush Matte Lipstick in Ma’Damn. And while her velvety lips certainly served as the focal point of the face, we’re obsessed with the entire bronze goddess look. Calling the summery glam makeup “casual slay” on her Instagram, here’s step-by-step guide to re-creating it.

Step 1: Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer to prevent shine and pave the way for smooth makeup application.
Step 2: Ono applied Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 340 for a soft matte finish.
Step 3: Match Stix Matte Skinstick in Peach to conceal, for the ultimate flawless complexion.
Step 4: Ono used Match Stix Matte Skinstick in Mocha, a few shades deeper than Rihanna’s base, to contour and define her face.
Step 5: One used the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Moscow Mule/Ginger Binge as blush on Rihanna’s cheeks and Hu$tla Baby from the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby as a highlight, up through the temples.
Step 6: To set the look, One applied Invisimatte Blotting Powder on the t-zone to absorb excess shine and diffuse pores for an instantly filtered appearance.
Step 7: For the lip, Priscilla applied the Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Ma’Damn, a royal red.
