If Rihanna’s makeup philosophy could be distilled into one maxim, it would be that there’s no such thing as an unwearable color—a point the queen of statement lips made twice at the Brit Awards in London last night.
The singer kicked off the evening with a monochromatic pairing of icy lilac lids and pastel lips that were carefully coordinated with her pearly manicure and sequined dress. It’s a tricky shade that hasn’t felt this right since the ’80s, taking on a modern note with the help of a warm wash of bronzer in the place of blush. Later in the night, RiRi switched gears with a swipe of black orchid pigment that seemed to take a cue from her recent Fenty x Puma show—suggesting that while we’ll have to wait a few months to shop the collection, the time to crib her neo-gothic runway look is now.
