After making quite the fashion statement at the 2014 CFDA Awards in a barely-there gown adorned with Swarovski crystals, Rihanna's name is on our lips again. But this time, it's her modest new magazine cover that's got us talking.
We see a completely different side of the 26-year-old as she shows way less skin for Harper's Bazaar Arabia's July/August 2014 issue. Wearing an elaborate beaded dress and mesh black bow veil on the cover, Rihanna captivates us with her gorgeous eye makeup and ruby red lips (is that MAC RiRi Woo?). Her traditional Maori tattoo also draws our attention to her matching red manicure.
Rihanna's glamorous nod to Middle Eastern culture continues throughout the accompanying photo spread, with the singer adorning her jet black hair with intricate headscarves. And we love those blunt bangs that hit right at her brow bone.
See how Rihanna "covers up in style" for Harper's Bazaar Arabia, and keep scrolling down to find out what you need to copy her cover look!
1. Highlighter. Use this complexion illuminating product down the center of your nose, above the cupid's bow, along your upper cheekbones and at your chin to appear lit from within. Skip your forehead (especially during the warm-weather months), as it will make you look greasy. Try: L'Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter or Chanel Eclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen.
2. Kajal eyeliner. Similar to a cream pencil eyeliner, this highly-pigmented liner, which is popular throughout South Asia and Africa, creates an intense cat-eye. Try: Guerlain The Original Creamy Khôl Me Kajal Eyeliner or Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio.
3. Mascara. Thicken and extend your eyelashes by generously coating your upper lashes, then add a simple stroke to the bottom for an eye-opening effect. Try: Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara or Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara.
4. Red lipstick. Matte is where it's at for this bright red lip look. Be sure to smooth out dry skin with a lip scrub and prep with a hydrating balm before application. Try: NYX Cosmetics Indie Flick Matte Lipstick or NARS Jungle Red Lipstick.
