How To Get Rihanna's 'BBHMM' Music Video Makeup Look, Because It's Insanely Fierce & Sexy
Often times, music videos are so full of action that your eyes don't even know where to look, especially when you're trying to keep up with a crazy plot. But it's hard to miss Rihanna's BBHMM music video makeup look, even though it was seriously the most jam-packed video I've seen in a long time. Instead of just renting out a room, some dancers, and a really nice car, Rihanna stepped up her game and literally killed some people, all while showing off some really memorable makeup.
Even though all I want to do is talk about all of the parts of this video that I love (which is actually the whole entire video because it's so badass), I'll save that for another time. Instead, I just want to focus on the fact that Rihanna pulled a makeup move that I've almost never seen anyone else do before: She wore red eye shadow. Maybe it's because she wanted to stick with the blood theme, or maybe it was just another way to make her killer eyes pop out, but she really pulled it off. Aside from the eye shadow, it seems like she kept her makeup look pretty simple. From a smear of black eyeliner to her fave deep purple lipstick, she left all of the dramatics to the video's plot.
And so lucky for us, we can replicate her look, minus the murder and bloody mess. Check out the three must-have products that will be sure to give you some of Rihanna's BBHMM fierceness. It's what Rihanna would want.
Red Eye Shadow
The greatest thing about this Make Up For Ever shadow is that it comes in so many different shades. So if this shade of red is a little too blood-like for you, then you can always step it down to a pinker shade. And since it's so pigment heavy, you only need a little dab. (Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in Tomato (Satin), $21, sephora.com).
Black Eye Liner
When I want a thick black liner, I always choose the kohl liner. And if I wanted to replicate badgalriri's look, it's exactly what I would reach for. It gives a smoky look, without really doing anything. (Nyx Cosmetics Collection Noir Kohl Kajal Black Liner, $3.59, ulta.com).
Deep Purple Lipstick
If you don't already own a deep, dark purple lipstick, now is the time to get one. And it doesn't necessarily have to be a super expensive one. But the color has to be right. Obviously, the more you spend, the better staying ability (and level of moisture) you'll get, but I always carry a mini thing of vaseline around, and dab it as necessary. (Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Va Va Violet, $7.99, target.com).
