Rihanna NYFW inspired Makeup

So Rihanna stepped out at this year's New York Fashion Week at an afterparty rocking some fierce blue lips. It was such a cool-as-a-cucumber, edgy look that I knew I just had to do my spin on this. I personally love the blue lips and feel this makes the look unique, but if blue lips aren't your thing, they can easily be replaced with a vampy deep burgundy for a fall, or even a nude color.

Keep reading for the makeup tutorial, and the inspiration pictures I used.

Here's RiRi's original look which I used as a guideline.

What makes this look wearable is the combination of the striking, cool toned blue lips, with the overall warm tones featured everywhere else on her face. This makes the cools not overpower and is actually very flattering on Rihanna.

Watch my video tutorial on Youtube below to see how to recreate this look.
