Rihanna’s makeup artist reveals inspiration behind Super Bowl look

Legendary makeup artist Pricilla Ono reveals inspiration behind Rihanna's iconic Super Bowl look.


Rihanna’s makeup artist has spilled her beauty secrets behind the iconic Super Bowl look.

When the R'n'B superstar stepped out on stage for the first time in nearly seven years, it was a performance to remember.

Her spectacular Super Bowl halftime show on February 12, broke the record for most-watched performance in Super Bowl’s history, raking up 118.7 million views.

All eyes were on Rihanna, who literally stole the show, as she stepped out in an all red ensemble. The ‘We Found Love’ singer was on fire like a phoenix who rose from the ashes.

It was during this performance that Rihanna chose to announce she was expecting her second child with rapper boyfriend ASAP Rocky.

But singing and baby news aside, the boundary pushing star made headlines after making a statement in the scarlet jumpsuit and crimson pout.

Global Fenty Beauty makeup artist and Rihanna’s long-time friend Priscilla Ono was responsible for the beauty look, and has now divulged the secrets behind her inspiration.

She told Pure Wow: "I definitely want to do something very iconic. You’re going to see a lot of things that I’ve been inspired by growing up in LA and my Mexican background. [The Super Bowl halftime show] is legendary, so I want to make sure the makeup aligns with it. It has to be classic and something we can look back at any point in time.”

A bold red lip always makes a statement and that it did when Rihanna took centre stage. The legendary makeup look was complete with iridescent white liner along her lash line.

She added: “I’ve really been into white eyeshadow these past couple of months and I feel like it’s going to be a big trend this year. It’s something I saw a lot growing up. It was always white frosted eyeshadow with black eyeliner.”
