Rihanna made it very clear to us that she could make a upside down cat eyes – and whatever else she pleases. Case in point: a circa September 2020 portrait of RiRi looking out into the distance while wearing her Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner in Sea About It, a cobalt blue shade.
Now, instead of simply displaying fierce inverted cat eyes, she display we how it is done. In a video posted to her Instagram story on November 22, the singer and beauty entrepreneur demonstrated eyeliner trend on her lower waters. RiRi proves that it’s nothing too complicated and anyone can do it regardless of skill level. Just carefully glide your chosen liner back and forth along your waterline.
For this roughly 30-second tutorial, Rihanna used red eyeliner, a pretty festive color choice that takes into account the holiday season. We’re guessing that Rihanna also picked up one of her own eyeliner pencils, most likely Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner in Cherry Punk, described as “fuzzy red.” NS Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Chroma Stix Makeup Pencil in red and Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Alkaline impart a similar color.
RiRi didn’t give us all the details on how to properly move into the inner corner or how to get there. soup in the upper lash line, but she definitely shows us that it’s a look we all need to tap into ASAP. In that case, if you’re reading this RiRi, it won’t hurt if you drop us a tutorial on how to align those corners one day.
