The performance-proof beauty products behind Rihanna’s Superbowl look

The performance-proof beauty products behind Rihanna’s Superbowl look

Including the ultimate beauty special guest appearance.

Rihanna hit the Superbowl stage and caused searches for Fenty Beauty to soar 833% after she brought on a special guest to help her out mid-performance – the Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder.

It was a classic Rihanna beauty mood – soft, matte skin thanks to her industry-breaking Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and her signature red lip, courtesy of the all new Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in The MVP, a high-impact flattering red that is, crucially, long-lasting and performance-proof.

“That red stage called for the ultimate Rihanna red lip, says the creator behind the look, Priscilla Ono, Fenty Beauty’s Global Make-up Artist. “We wanted her beauty look to celebrate this moment and be a true reflection of her timeless beauty. And to me, there’s nothing more iconic to Rihanna than her soft matte skin and a bold red lip.”

Ono applied thin layers of the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation and Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder for a lightweight look that would last throughout the performance.

For the week leading up to Game Day, Ono’s skin routine recommendation for Rihanna was gentle exfoliation and deep nourishment on face and lips, courtesy of Fenty Beauty’s Preshowglow 1-Minute Facial, Pre-Show Glow Instant Retexturizing 10% AHA Treatment, Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick and Plush Puddin’ Intensive Recovery Lip Mask.

As for pre-performance skin prep, Priscilla Ono relied on Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen to create a balanced complexion ready for long-lasting make-up. “Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor is the perfect pre-make-up moisturizer because it nourishes the skin and is undetectable under foundation,” says Ono. “You don’t have to worry about your complexion products fading or moving, which is so important, especially for performance make-up.”
