Dubai: Work hard, do not sleep and wear Fenty, said Rihanna when she was asked how she became the biggest beauty trendsetter in the world in such a short time. Rihanna was in Dubai on Saturday for her first ever live makeup class, Fenty Beauty Artistry & Beauty talk with Rihanna at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa. and she owned every second of it on stage.
Two of her closest makeup artists Hector Espinal and Priscilla Ono, were on stage doing a live makeup demonstration while Rihanna was walking around like a queen, giving makeup tips and answering questions from the audience. She looked supercharged and bright and brought out her funniest side. She started the show by asking the audience to be easy on her as she was nervous herself. Looking radiant and golden just like her popular highlighter Trophy Wife, Rihanna inspired many by talking about how much hard work lies behind everything that she does in life.
She spoke about how she tries her products thousands of times and keeps sending them back to the laboratory till she gets the perfect shade and texture that she wants. She also spoke about recreating makeup from some of her iconic appearances at various events especially the MET gala look. Did you know that Rihanna was doing her own makeup for all her stage shows and only recently started using makeup artists to work on her looks? The global singing superstar also invited some of the audience members on stage to try her products.
“It’s makeup. You should have FUN with it. Go crazy,” was her advice to the make-up lovers present.
The biggest surprise of the night was when Rihanna launched her brand new black coloured lipstick shade called Uninvited, rightly in the season of Halloween. And everyone in the audience got an opportunity to be the first one to try that lipstick shade.
Rihanna was candid and made most of her fans feel like a family. At the afterparty of the event, she spent a long time patiently clicking selfies with fans. She later shocked clients shopping at Sephora in Dubai Mall by making a surprise appearance at the store.
