Rihanna Wild Thoughts (inspired) | Makeup Tutorial


Today I’m doing a tutorial recreating Rihanna’s makeup in her Wild Thoughts music video which was released like a day ago. When I saw it on Tumblr I really really liked it and my friend Sarah actually recreated this look already. I’m going to link her video below. Along with Anchal MUA who also did the same recreation and I think she used the exact same turquoise eyeshadow but I think it’s nice seeing everyone do a recreation because you can see their take on it and depending on skin tone you can see how it will work on you. But this is what I came up with. Also, I want mention, unrelated to this tutorial, I’m going to link Meg and I’s Poshmark below. We’ve had it up for like a month now and I keep forgetting to mention it. Um all the clothing that we are selling has been worn tops two times. Or not at all so it’s all new clothing. And it’s all like marked down in price. But yeah, if you’re interested just go check it out. But I hope you enjoy today’s tutorial. I’m priming my eyelid with some Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then I’m taking the color Coco Bear by Makeup Geek and a Sigma E25 blending brush. And putting this through my crease. This will act as a transition shade for the turquoise and soften up that edge. And the reason I’m using a fluffy brush is because I want this color to be diffused. The denser the brush, the thicker the application and the less blend-ability it has. So I’m kind of going a little bit above my crease towards my brow bone up here. Then I’m bringing it out a little bit. For the main turquoise color I’m using I’m using the color Fringe from the Electric Palette and a flat shader brush. Now because it’s packed I can densely pack this color onto the brush and pack it onto my lid. And it goes on much more opaque opposed to if I were to use a fluffier brush. So I’m packing this all over my lid. Using short little strokes. Then I’m bringing it up to my crease. And winging it out slightly. So I’m using the tip of the brush now to get that wing shape. Bringing it onto my lower lash line. Bringing the color around the tear duct. And then I’m bringing the color on the tear duct towards my nose a little bit. So it’s going to elongate my eye. And then I’m working on the wing out here. To bring it out a tiny bit more. Then on the outer corner I’m using the fluffier end of this brush and taking a black matte shadow. And then kind of just pressing it into this outer wing to make it deeper. And I’m mixing it with the turquoise color underneath. Bringing it slightly onto the lower lash line. I’m switching to my Sigma E25 brush which is a softer brush just to blend out this edge. And it still has some of that brown on so it brings it all together. So just blend out that edge. Over the black I’m adding the color Midnight by Anastasia using that same brush that I used for the black. And just patting that in. This color has a little bit more of a green blue fleck in it. So it’s not like a matte black. It blends in with the turquoise a little bit better. i’m going to take a q-tip and just soften up this edge. The nice thing about using a q-tip is that it softens the edge and also removes some of the shadow. Which is the difference I find between a brush. For the highlight I’m taking this Physician’s Formula highlighter and a small petite brush from ELF. I’m just dipping it right into the white corner here and placing it right above the turquoise. At the inner corner. In the music video as she turned there was a little bit of highlight right here. But it wasn’t as prominent when she was looking forward. Bring it all the way up to the brow and a little bit down and around the turquoise color. It’s a very subtle highlight. For the brow bone I’m taking this matte kind of flesh color from the Sonia Kashuk Matte Palette on a fluffy brush. And placing that all over the brow. This will just neutralize my brow color. And at this point I’ll kind of go back in with the CocoBear color. This one right here. And add a little bit more in if it got blended away. And then I’m going back in with this highlight color on the small brush and adding just a tiny bit to my brow bone. Now I’m going to tightline with a black pencil. This part is really important because if you want to match it towards Rihanna’s eyes, she has very beady small eyes. And she always tightlines her inner rim. I don’t know if it’s her natural eye color or that they’re just that way but it kind of gives them that sultry look and that tiny eye effect. And it also draws in everything together especially when you don’t have a winged liner. I’m going to do this off camera otherwise I’m going to get makeup on my eye. Then I’m going to curl my eyelashes. Which I never do. But for this look I figured I might as well. Then load up on mascara. Top and bottom lashes. Now for my base as always I’m doing one pump of the Nars Sheer Glow. Also sorry if this shirt I’m wearing is super loud and annoying. Didn’t think it would be this loud but it is. So the great thing about doing foundation second after the eyes is that you can really clean up any fallout under your eyes. And I always change this up depending on what eyeshadow I’m using if I know it has fallout or if it’s like a really bright color like today. It’s less risky doing eyes first. Then I’m putting on some concealer. And blending it in. See how that really cleans up the eyeshadow. Now I’m setting my concealer with some ELF powder. For my browns I’m brushing them up first through with a spoolie. And then lightly filling them in. Then I’m setting my brows with some brow gel. Alright now to finish off my base I’m going to bronze/contour with the blackup contouring powder and a real techniques sculpting brush. Then for blush I’m going in with Milani Luminoso and a sonia kasuk blush brush. And I’m going over everything with my foundation brush to blend it all in. And then lastly for lips, I’m putting on the Besame lipstick on in the color American Beauty. And that’s the makeup complete!
