If you didn’t know this already, well, you do now: Rihanna is literally great at everything she does. So, of course, her first ever beauty master class, hosted in Dubai, was dope as hell.
In just one year, Rihanna’s inclusive makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, has been wildly successful, and it doesn’t seem like she’s slowing down any time soon. Between being named one of the best inventions by Time and covering Allure’s Best of Beauty issue, Rihanna still finds time to drop new shades of lipstick or highlighter that we never even knew we needed!
This weekend, RiRi took a quick trip to Dubai to host the first Fenty Beauty Artistry and Beauty Talk hosted with Sephora Middle East. The 30-year-old beauty and fashion mogul took the stage at the Armani Hotel and gave fans the inside scoop on all things Fenty Beauty. She even did her own makeup tutorial to help everyone mimic her flawless beat:
Rihanna was joined on the stage by Fenty Beauty’s global makeup artists Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal to create full Fenty looks on models, including Halima Aden and Leomie Anderson.
Even though the tickets sold for around $272 to $2,000, fans came from all over the world just to ask RiRi all her skin care and entrepreneur secrets. All the proceeds from the tickets went to an organization that funds education programs in developing countries called Dubai Cares. We love a philanthropic queen!
Rihanna obviously had to show up serving a fly ass lewk. Check out her flawless trench-coat style below:
Only Rihanna could look this glamourous in a classic trench coat. The satin number was designed by Riccardo Tisci for Burberry. She finished off the look with strappy Manolo Blahnik sandals and a Stalvey mini handbag. And you know she was rocking her Savage x Fenty lingerie line underneath!
At the end of her demonstration, Rihanna unveiled her latest Stunna Lip Paint shade as a part #StunnaWeek, which is a week full of new releases of Fenty Beauty’s lipstick. And just in time for Halloween, she gave us a soft-matte black lippie called Uninvited. And Rihanna let us all know that “the best way to show up to a party… is Uninvited."
With a motto like “Beauty for All,” Rihanna continues to set Fenty Beauty apart from other makeup brands with her innovative and unique take on all things beauty. We can only hope for more makeup demonstrations in the future, because we need all the tips, sis!
