Move over, John Mayer — Rihanna is the latest celebrity turned beauty blogger. With a resume that spans the music and fashion industries, the 30-year-old entrepreneur is now being hailed the “Queen of Beauty” with her highly-successful Fenty brand. Her latest venture? Vlogging. In a new series for Fenty Beauty, titled “Tuesday Tutorials With Rihanna,” the makeup mogul is sharing a makeup tutorial every week via the brand’s YouTube page.
While this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a tutorial courtesy of the brand’s founder — she’s previously teased new product launches with video clips on social media — these definitely have more of a vlogger vibe. "I'm gonna be a total YouTuber now and do it, like, the professional way," she said during the second video of the series.
In each video, RiRi gives fans a crash course, up close and personal, on how to apply Fenty products to achieve different looks. So far, she’s blessed us with an icy purple look using the newly released, limited edition Chill Owt holiday collection and a vampy look using the Stunna Lip Paint in Uninvited, a badass black shade. For someone who has a roster of celebrity MUAs at her beck and call, Rihanna’s application skills are seriously impressive, and the makeup tips she offers throughout are very helpful (take notes!).
“I’m going to try to make it as easy and simple as possible for all of you,” she says of the first tutorial, before applying different shades from the Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette ($54; sephora.com). Trust us, though, even if you aren’t looking to recreate her dramatic makeup looks, these videos will be music to your ears. Watch the first tutorial below, shop the products, then check back for more come Tuesday!
