Getting your skin to gleam just right—you know, so that you look like an ethereal goddess who radiates her health and beauty from the inside (just me?)—usually involves applying your favorite highlighter to a few prime areas: your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, your nose, under your brow bones. But there’s another surprising feature Rihanna‘s makeup artist always makes pop, too.
It’s one of those things you’ll never notice until you’re looking for it, but RiRi’s ears are always shimmering. And according to Hector Espinal—a global makeup artist for Rihanna’s line, Fenty Beauty—that’s no accident. Applying highlighter to your ears is such an easy way to add some extra wow-factor to your look.

“Anything that’s exposed, we loving putting highlight or shimmer on,” Espinal told E! News. “Anything I do on the face, I do on the ears.
As an added bonus, Espinal says the tactic may be able to help give your love life a boost. “If you’re flirting and you just want to [slowly tuck your hair behind an ear], it can make an impact.” Not to mention, the confidence lift you’ll get by knowing you look fine (AKA Rihanna-approved) can totally help you attract the kind of date you’re after.
So if the only special attention you give your ears is dousing them in sunscreen, you might want to make a change.
