Rainy days are the perfect time to relax, have some tea, and catch up on your favorite shows. The purr of the rain on the rooftop, and the comforting warmth of your home make for a serene, relaxing setting, which you should take full advantage of. These days are perfect for meditating, trying some yoga, cooking, and reading. However, not all of us have the privilege of relaxing on rainy days; we often have errands that need to be run, and work that needs to be finished. Thus, the ideal makeup look for a rainy day is one that is both natural and casual, as well as somewhat sophisticated, and formal. Rihanna’s Grammy makeup look is perfect when it comes to rainy days.
This look is so great because it is very natural, all while adding in hints of glam. The light application of makeup made the look very airy, while other parts of the look, such as the brows and liner, are sharp and precise. This combination is not only beautiful, but appealing to the eye. Here are some of the best products to help you achieve Rihanna’s rainy day look.
Milk Makeup Blur Stick
This product works as a primer that goes under your foundation. It blurs pores, reduces fine lines, and mattifies the skin. It will allow for a flawless finish after you have applied foundation. Rihanna’s face is very smooth with no visible pores, bumps, or imperfections, and this stick will ensure that your foundation will give you the same. Although it will “blur” your pores, you don’t have to worry about it clogging them, as the product still lets the pores breathe after application.
BH Cosmetics Brow Palette
What’s so great about this palette is that it gives you everything you need to perfect your brows, and more. It features 8 brow powders and 4 wax shades. The brown colors can be used when shaping the brow, and the lighter colors, such as the white, can be used as a highlight. The best part is that you aren’t limited to using these shades just on your brows, they can be used for eyeliner, eyeshadow, and as a highlight around your face. This is an awesome product, with many uses, that will give you that Instagram brow.
Marc Jacobs Gel Crayon Eyeliner
Rihanna’s eyeliner is nothing short of precise and smooth. This gel crayon will allow you to recreate this stunning look, without the mess of a liquid eyeliner. It is also waterproof, so the rain won’t affect your wing. This product has won Allure’s “Best of Beauty” award, so you should definitely give it a try!
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Setting Spray
This setting spray is the perfect product to mist all over your face after you’ve finished your makeup. A setting spray is especially important to use on a rainy day, as it locks in all of the makeup, and ensures that nothing will streak or smudge. This product is a 4-in-1 setting mist, because it primes, sets, hydrates, and refreshes the skin. It will smooth fine lines and wrinkles, giving you that flawless Rihanna rainy day look.
