Oh-na-na, you know her name. And now you’re getting a peek into Rihanna’s beauty arsenal.
Known for her glowing skin, the songbird recently shared with Elle her favorite beauty products and secret fix for when she’s having a “bad-face” day. (Yes, we found it hard to believe she ever has one of those, as well!)
“When I feel like my skin has had it, I cut all the alcohol completely and overdo the water,” she said. And if good old H20 isn’t cutting it, “[I] mix moisturizer and a drop of foundation,” she said, adding that Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Gel Cream is her go-to potion. “That, some mascara, lipstick, and you're good. And fix those brows.”
Révive Intensité Crème Lustre Day Firming Moisture Cream with SPF 30, M.A.C. Haute & Naughty mascara and her signature fragrance, Rogue by Rihanna, round out her essentials. As for her favorite beauty product, she said lipstick is a must-have because “it draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they're wearing a full face of makeup,” the singer said. “And guys are stupid—they won't notice when you're not.”
And speaking of lipstick, the Bajan beauty is prepping for the release of her new M.A.C. Viva Glam collection, which will be launched in early September. On the best part about working with the campaign, “The fact that every penny spent goes to the M.A.C. AIDS fund: All of it helps save the lives of people who are affected by HIV and AIDS,” she said.
Rih plans to raise $40 million for the cause with her latest collection.
