If you’re waiting for Rihanna to drop new music — it may be time for you to throw in the towel. Riri is booked and busy for the foreseeable future considering her beauty, skincare and lingerie lines are enormously successful. Her latest makeup tutorial lets us in on how she maintains her flawless skin and how she pulls off her no-makeup makeup look. Of course, we had to take notes.
In the tutorial, she breezed through her morning skincare routine, starting with Fenty Skin’s Total Cleans’R Remove-It-All Cleanser and following with Fenty’s Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum. She finished her base with a few drops of the Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer before starting her natural makeup look.
For this look, she opts for her Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, making sure to point out that there’s “no chalky cast” coming from the moisturizer she used (which typically happens with moisturizers that also contain SPF). Then, she delicately applies the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer under her eyes before doing a quick contour with the Sun Stalk’R Instant Warmth Bronzer.

The contour is complete with a couple lines down her nose using the Match Stix Contour Skinstick in the shade Truffle. The Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush makes a big difference by adding a rosy glow to her famously high cheekbones.
Now, for the details. The Invisimatte Blotting Powder helps her to mattify her t-zone while the Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler completely transforms her eyebrows, making them full and defined.
Her finishing touches give her entire look a glossy finish. The Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara opens her eyes while keeping the look natural, and the versatile Match Stix Glow Skinstick adds shimmer in the areas she wants to highlight. Finally, the Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick in the colour Purrrl turns the look up a notch by giving her lips a nice berry shade.
In the end, Rihanna stresses how important skincare is for a no-makeup makeup look. “If you’ve got good skin, you don’t need too much makeup.” Easy coming from her, but she has a point.
