Rihanna Shares Her Top Skin Secret & Makeup Tricks


Rihanna has shared her top secret that gives her skin a glow. The singer says that when she feels her complexion is looking dull, she cuts out alcohol for a while and starts drinking a lot of water to boost her radiance. She has been shocked in the past at how bad alcohol can make her skin look:

”When I feel like my skin has had it, I cut all the alcohol completely and overdo the water. The morning of the Chanel couture show last year, I was so jet-lagged that I really didn’t sleep, and I had some wine the night before. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I look old as shit! Who is this person?’ ”

Her favourite everyday makeup is very simple, and her best trick is to simply blend moisturiser and a small quantity of foundation together to create a simple, natural looking base. She explained her quick fix tricks:

”Mix moisturiser and a drop of foundation. That, some mascara, lipstick, and you’re good. And fix those brows.”

Rihanna loves the sun, but says she has to wear sunscreen or her complexion can become quite uneven looking over time:

”I love going home and being reckless with the sun, but I notice now that under my eyes starts to get tan. I hate that! I have to put extra sunscreen there.”

The singer believes throwing on a lipstick is the ultimate quick fix because people don’t notice the rest of your face as much:

”It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid — they won’t notice when you’re not.”
