Close your eyes and think way, way back: Has there ever been a time Rihanna didn’t look like a bronzed goddess? Considering she’s been rocking a serious glow since her “Pon de Replay” days (just revisit the iconic music video for proof), it’s safe to say she has the #lewk down. And according to her makeup artist, achieving it for yourself only takes one product to master the look.
Aside from applying highlighter to her ears (genius, right?), RiRi pretty much gets her glow from—you guessed it—her trusty bronzer. And when it comes to specific spots to layer the multi-tasking product, well, makeup artist Priscilla Ono—who’s worked with her for years—tells Byrdie that she basically applies it everywhere. “It can be used on the face, eyes, lips, and body, so one product is all you need to create a full look.”
Still, the makeup guru says you can accentuate certain facial features by using warmer-hued shimmer sticks to get Rihanna’s go-to look: “Opt for a bronzy shade…and apply to the top of cheekbones, eyes, and lips to warm up your complexion for a lit-from-within glow that’s flattering on both light and deep complexions,” she says.
As far as specific products go, Ono says she favors Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks from Fenty Beauty (Rihanna’s beauty line, duh), specifically the Rum or Sinamon colors for spotlighting eyes, cheekbones, and lips. But you can also use a natural bronzer to satisfy your clean-beauty goals. With a few swipes of the glowy stuff in the right spots, you’ll be on RiRi’s level in no time.
