Wow, the Grammys sure were polarizing this year, in terms of both the fashion and the politics! It was a great show and to celebrate ULTA and COVERGIRL are sponsoring a HUGE giveaway for BIZ readers. Plus, I have a COVERGIRL look inspired by the pop princess herself, Rihanna.
Also, from now until February 21st, ULTA shoppers who purchase any COVERGIRL product can receive an additional COVERGIRL product for 50% off!
Yes, Rihanna was pretty amazing performing Four Five Seconds with Paul McCartney and Kanye, but her true WOW moment was on the red carpet in her Giambattista Valli couture silk and tulle gown. I know, I know…lots of people thought this was a huge miss and that she looked like a giant toilet paper cozy. But I loved this! It’s big, it’s a statement, and it’s fun! I think the gown looks amazing on Rihanna and the pink shade is beautiful. A gown like this needs soft hair and makeup, which is exactly what Rihanna chose.
That gorgeous pink gown and Rihanna’s understated makeup inspired my look which I created using products sent to the BIZ by ULTA and COVERGIRL. Products I used include Blooming Blushes Eyeshadow Quad, Bombshell Pow-Der BROW + Liner in 805, Full Lash Bloom Mascara, and Outlast Lip Color in 720.
The Blooming Blushes Eyeshadow Quad has a beautiful deep pink which I used on the mobile lid; a shimmery copper pink I used in the crease; a medium matte brown used in the crease and the outer portion of the mobile lid; and a light shimmery pink which I used on the brow. The end result? A glam yet still understated eye look that really opens the eye.
I then lined my upper and lower lash line with the Bombshell Pow-Der BROW + Liner and filled in my eyebrows, too. This is a winner of an eyeliner thanks to the easy to use felt applicator and the powder doesn’t smudge.
Then I applied three coats of the Full Lash Bloom Mascara, which has a stellar brush that really grabs every lash. I finished with a peachy-pink lip courtesy of the Outlast Lip Liner in 720. This is a longwearing lip color that comes with a fabulous topcoat that adds moisture and shine.
