The latest celebrity dropping as a care package to the globe is undoubtedly singer and beauty mogul Rihanna. No doubt, we cannot expect any music from a prominent singer, but if you are looking out for some beauty hacks, then you are indeed on the right page.

All you need to do is scroll down and guess what? All your beauty queries are solved. RiRi recently shared some of her beauty tips with beauty editors during a private zoom meeting. Well, she also briefed the viewers about how her latest beauty brand, “the Fenty skincare line,” is here to bloom.

Rihanna’s Skincare Routine

Rihanna reveals that she has some of the most enviable complexions in the entire game, and her newly opened beauty line, Fenty skin, will surely open doors to a Riri-like glow for everyone.

In an Instagram video, she had recently revealed that she is a woman of hues, and she has a lot of sensitivity in several areas of her face. Furthermore, she said that she is pretty picky with the products, and she is often both scared and cautious.

First step:

All of us have heard the term double cleansing a dozen times, and often the technique is used to remove the existing makeup with a cleanser. The main aim here is to clean the skin properly before you apply other skincare. Rihanna says her Total Cleans is indeed two in one.

She has posted a video where she cleaned her makeup in a single pass on her Instagram account. Further, she explained that irrespective of whether you have makeup on or not, the cleanser could remove all the dirt and oil. The best part is that it can remove all the makeup in no time.

Lastly, she also mentioned that she uses the cleanser twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. The best of all is that it is non -stripping, which means it can leave the skin nourished and moisturized.

Second, comes the toner:

All of us know that toner plays a crucial role, but it all depends on the product one uses. For instance, here, Rihanna revealed that she uses Fenty Skin’s Fat Water, one of the unique toners compared to the one available out there. It is because the product is more vicious as compared to other ones. To quote shortly, it is a perfect blend of toner and serum.

After cleansing, Rihanna applies the toner by pouring it in her palm and patting it softly on her skin, and there is no need for any cotton pad or makeup wipes too. Indirectly, with the technique, Rihanna showed how to cut down on wastes. The toner serum works perfectly for her skin.

Moisturizer and SPF Saves:

In a recent Zoom interview, Rihanna revealed that she feels that there is some misconception surrounding SPF, incredibly that Black toned humans don’t need it. However, all she spoke on this was that SPF is for one and all. Usually, people choose SPF 30.

When it comes to moisturizing, Rihanna chooses Fenty Skin’s Hydra Vizor moisturizer as it is a combo product featuring moisturizer and (coral reef-safe) sunscreen in one. Additionally, she ensures that moisturizer leaves a funky scent or zero white casts.

The moisturizer is the product that Rihanna splurges on and is open about anything to do with the moisturizer. Be it face or body, Rihanna feels it’s fantastic to add some good moisture to the skin. Besides, having something practical that works is quite vital.

Hydration Rules:

Rihanna says that come what may, she keeps her skin hydrated, which means it goes beyond moisturizing. All we think of is water when it comes to hydration, but due to her tight travel schedule, it is challenging to sip on water after every few hours.

Well, she has a hack to this issue, as Rihanna chooses to use Fenty Beauty hydrating mist. On a bad skin day, she revealed in an interview that water is her saving hack. When she feels that her skin is entirely cut, then she cuts down her alcohol intake and ensures she has plenty of water.

Diet is the Key:

Besides all the fantastic products and hydration, Rihiannia chooses to stick to healthy food in her skincare routine. Debbie Solomon is Rihanna’s personal chef, and the fellow Caribbean lady ensures she integrates flavors and ingredients from roots to the daily meals.

Solomon also told once that the singer is fond of almost all the proteins that one can think of, including rice, vegetables, and pasta. Additionally, on an appearance, Solomon revealed that: four hard-boiled eggs, a slice of crustless toast, and a bowl of mixed berries is Ri’s breakfast choice. 

Furthermore, Rihanna said she goes to bed with exotic vegetables and fresh food. Barbados cherry is quite her personal favorite as it is loaded with Vitamin C.

Rihanna Natural Makeup Routine

Rihanna is undoubtedly a makeup icon as she turns heads in almost all the events and movies. Well, no doubt her new makeup line, Fenty skin, is a massive hit but here she wants her fans to know that having great makeup is not all they need but having great skin is the goal. In a makeup tutorial, she reveals all her big secrets.

She starts her makeup using Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, and there is no chalky cast here. Ideally, the foundation makes the skin makeup ready. She also uses Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110.

Furthermore, Rihanna chooses to stress over a natural look, so she uses Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer. Besides using a good concealer, Rihanna uses a cream bronzer, Sun Stalk’R Instant Warmth Bronzer, as it helps her maintain a fantastic dewiness.

From the shade truffle, she chooses Match Stix Contour Skinstick and Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush. However, when it comes to defining, she decides to blot her T-zone and her brows. The main reason to use this technique is that it allows her to draw them without slipping on the foundation.

She defines her look by using Invisimatte Blotting Powder. Furthermore, Riri uses Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler to tidy her brow.

Lastly, she chooses to finish her makeup with a unique, flirty eye that does all the talking. For the flirty eye look, she chooses Match Stix Glow Skinstick. Furthermore, she ends the routine with Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick.


Rihanna ends the video by saying that she could pretend that she woke up like this. All she says is that the makeup products look fantastic on these face products. To conclude, she meant that they surely don’t need much makeup if one has good skin.
