LOTD | Rihanna CFDA awards | The naked truth

Big hello from me again :)

How are you gals doing?? I am sure great wherever you are.

I had been wanting to start a “Look of the Day” series for different celebrity/occasion inspired makeup looks. Recently, Rihanna is in major news for flaunting a near naked look for CFDA Awards 2014. Have you seen her pictures yet? I am sure you must have, since it was a talk of the town(read: World). If you haven’t, you can see below.

Well, I know a lot has been said about her near naked dress and all of that, but honestly, I believe if you have it, you flaunt it. If she doesn’t have a problem in carrying off something in front of the whole world, then it’s totally fine. Atleast for me :P

Well, moving on now. Apart from her much talked about and controversial dress, her makeup was something which was completely flawless and I though why not start my LOTD series with this look itself.

Also, today itself, my favourite makeup artist on youtube- Jaclyn Hill did a video on the same look. You can watch her video here. I totally love her insanely :P

Regarding me, look at the products which I used for recreating the look-

I have used below products for creating the eyes-

  1. Naked 1 Palette from Urban Decay (My new palette which I got from my Singapore haul. See my haul here )
  2. Eye shadow base- Nyx
  3. For crease- Buck
  4. For eyelids- Gunmetal
  5. For outer corner- Black from Bobbi Brown Limited edition eye shadow palette
  6. For inner corner-Sin
  7. Mascara-Loreal Butterfly effect
  8. Foundation- Kryolan HD foundation(you can see my Kryolan Haul video here)
  9. Mac concealer for under eye area and set it up using Bare escentuals concealer powder
  10. For cheeks- I used Mac bronzing powder and Kryolan glamour glow for highlighting. I did not use any blush on as her look was highly bronzed without any blush(IMO atleast)
  11. For lips- Mac Faux lipstick and Nyx butter gloss Maple blondie

Finally the pictures-

Who looks better :D

Let me know what do you think.

I personally believe, the most difficult part is taking good pictures. I tired so much to get the exact look but still I think sometimes my camera misbehaves with me L I hope you won’t mind that much.

Also, if you like my posts and want to be read them as soon as I post, you can like my FB page or follow me on twitter or follow me on bloglovin :)

P.S. On a side note, last week me and my hubby had to attend a wedding. 1 of my close friends sent the below to me. The 2nd part so stands true for me. Which 1 holds true for you :)




Stay pink, Stay pretty

    I really liked Rihanna’s make-up, and you really did an awesome job copying the look! Didn’t care much for the dress though. Too sleazy.
