M•A•C Cosmetics Senior Artist John Stapleton schools us on taking a classic red lip from day to night in no time with the new Viva Glam Rihanna, and he gives us a few insider tips too—all inspired by looks on the runway at Monique Lhuillier and Altuzarra.
Set the perfect backdrop for an exciting red lip using Viva Glam Rihanna, an incredible blue-based red-fuchsia that anyone can wear.
For daytime, wear the Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick with our Lip Pencil in Cherry and a simple eye makeup application. Keep the eyelid nude with Paint Pot in Groundwork and add a gorgeous black winged liner and some spiky black mascara. A well-groomed eyebrow brushed upward completes the look.
For a night on the town, add the Viva Glam Rihanna Gloss to lips for a starlit sparkle. Line the inside of the eyes with Pro Longwear Eye Liner in Black Ice. This formula lasts up to 12 hours! Dust the apples of your cheeks with Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle to give them a sheen. Add just a bit of the powder down your nose and into the bow of your lip for opalescent skin.
Every cent of Viva Glam Rihanna’s selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Want more tips and recommendations from John? Follow him on twitter @MAC_John_S.
