For the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show, Rihanna hit the biggest stage in the world in a classic Rihanna beauty look—flawless, soft matte skin and her iconic red lip, featuring the NEW! Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in The MVP, a luxe and long-lasting liquid lipstick in a universally-flattering red shade, and her go-to complexion products, Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
and Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder (even touching up with it mid-performance!).
“That red stage called for the ultimate Rihanna red lip. We wanted her beauty look to celebrate this moment and be a true reflection of her timeless beauty. And to me, there’s nothing more iconic to Rihanna than her soft matte skin and a bold red lip,” says Priscilla Ono, Fenty Beauty global makeup artist.
Ono applied thin layers of the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation and Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder so that skin still looked like skin, but was performance- proof, too. And for the lip? All it took was one swipe of the creamy, whipped formula of the NEW! Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick. The high-impact red color delivered a smooth, lightweight texture that’s comfortable and non-drying on the lips, making it the perfect choice for Rihanna’s performance lip. Thorough skin prep was essential to creating a balanced complexion that was ready for long-lasting makeup. Ono’s skin routine for Rihanna consisted of gentle exfoliation and deep nourishment on face and lips, for the week leading up to Game Day.
“Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor is the perfect pre-makeup moisturizer because it nourishes the skin and is undetectable under foundation,” Ono says. “You don’t have to worry about your complexion products fading or moving, which is so important, especially for performance makeup.” —Vita Daily
