Get Rihanna's Complete 'Wild Thoughts' Look in Just 3 Easy Steps

Watch Celebrity MU, Camara Aunique show how to perfect this beat.

Published July 28, 2017

It’s a fact that, since the start of this summer, DJ Khaled’s hit "Wild Thoughts" has been stuck in your head at one point or another, and if you’re someone who loves doing your makeup, trying this look is certainly on your bucket list. Rihanna rocked two very sexy looks, both involving a fierce red lip. We had the pleasure of bringing in celebrity makeup artist Camara Aunique, who's worked with Justine SkyeJune AmbroseCynthia Erivo and more. Camara taught us how to get RiRi's entire look in just three simple steps, so you can too.

  1. Step 1: The Eyes

    After your primer, foundation and highlight have already been applied, the first step to nailing this look is to apply a little of Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion to both eyelids. This will ensure that your eye look stays in place ALL night. Next is the eyeshadow. For this video, Camara used Roque Cozzette's eyeshadow in the shades Bliss and Halite.

    Then proceed to pack both eye shadows onto the lid, working your way up to the crease. Use a windshield wiper motion to blend into the crease. And for the outer eye, Camara used MAC's Brown Down eyeshadow.

    Lastly, smoke out brown eyeliner into your lower lash line and then pack the same lid color into your brow bone to highlight and add your favorite mascara.

  2. Step 2: The Lips

    Rihanna is wearing a bold red lip the entire time in "Wild Thoughts," so for our video we used Nar's Jungle Red lip liner and Beauty Bakerie's lip whip in the shade Mon Chéri. Pro tip: To clean up around the lip line, you can use a small brush with some concealer on it.

  3. Step 3: Accessories

    To complete this wild look, you'll need a red, off-the-shoulder blouse, a floral bandanna, aviator sunglasses and some HUGE hoop earrings. Check out our picks above!
