Rihanna Makeup Tutorial (CFDA Awards)

Last Weeks CFDA Awards had everyone talking about one thing, a dress, worn by Rihanna of course.
It was a beautiful dress (designed by Adam Selman), no-one can deny that, but it was also very very see through, and bould ol' Rihanna decided not to wear anything underneath! The dress was covered in hand-applied Swarovski crystals, but while it was super blingin', it was really quite stunning!
Thankfully she wore knickers, a flesh coloured thong, but her boobs were on show for the world to see... not that we all haven't seen them before so no biggy, right!?

'That' Dress designed by Adam Selman

So while everyone was getting their knickers in a twist over her dress, I was more focused on her makeup. How utterly gorgeous did she look!!? Her sexy, sparkly purple smokey eye was perfection and complimented beautifully by nude lips & cheeks, with flawless skin.
So of course, I just HAD to recreate the look.
