Kimmie Kyees plus Rihanna’s inspired Marc Jacobs nail art

Kimmie Kyees has worked with Rihanna over the years to create varieties of different nail art. From appearances, photo shoots, music videos or even just fun. For Rihanna’s lastest music video ‘where have you been’ Kyees has used one of her own designs she designed for minx nails to go with the whole reptile/tribal look. She opted for lustrous lizard which features a snakeskin print with a hologram base and multiple colours to complete the look. You can purchase these at any local beauty store that sells minx nails or you can purchase them at beautycow.com OR ellisons.co.uk (prices vary).

Came across this tutorial by cherrysuedointhedo.com which features designs of Rihanna’s Marc Jacobs floral detail dress from the resort 2013 collection. You can visit her site on how to achieve this look.

Make up artist Kabuki: Princess of china


MTV has caught up with fashion make up artist Kabuki again this time for Rihanna’s latest appearance for Coldplay’s music video “princess of China”. He has worked with Rihanna before creating fierce looks for her latest music video “where have you been”, which we posted HERE.

“MTV STYLE: Last time, we chatted about working with Rihanna on her music video for “Where Have You Been”, now we’re talking about another Rihanna project, Coldplay’s “Princess of China” video which features Ri. How were things different working with Rihanna on this second video?

KABUKI: The “Princess of China” makeup was a little bit more planned because I had already worked with her on “Where Have You Been” by that point, so I kind of had an idea of what she might go for. It was also a bit more of a character because it’s a Coldplay video that she’s singing in, so I felt she had more of an opportunity of playing a part.

That’s really interesting. From where did you draw inspiration for this character Rihanna would play in “Princess of China”?

The way I got inspiration for that was I did a drawing of her face. Sometimes I don’t like using other references because you can be tempted to duplicate that reference. I tried to, rather than use references, just use my imagination, and I really like the idea of a skinny eyebrow because I thought it really took her away from being herself and plays up that character. It was also really helpful for me to show her that [skinny eyebrow] on a drawing of her own face rather than show her an example from an editorial work where it might look completely different.”

Should definatly check out his work it’s amazing.

Rihanna’s Hackney weekend beauty look


ELLE UK caught up with with make up artist Karin Darnell who was responsible for Rihanna Egyptian make up look. Info below reads how Darnell created Rihanna’s look…

On Sunday Darnell hotfooted it from the Isle of Wight to Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend where she created a completely different look for Rihanna. ‘It was a street Egyptian-inspired look, but more fashion than Egyptian!’ Darnell told us.

To get that Egyptian feel, Darnell applied a double liquid line underneath and on top of the eyes. To avoid it looking too retro, Darnell ‘painted straighter lines on Rihanna’s eyelids, rather than an upward sweep’.

Rihanna’s foundation was Dolce & Gabbana, while the powder Darnell used on top was by Iman; on cheeks there was a subtle blend of bronzer and peachy blush by Givenchy. Finally, on the singer’s lips Darnell used Mac’s classic lipstick Ruby Woo, £13.50. (via ELLE)

MTV exclusively interviews make up artist ‘Kabuki’ who is responsible for Rihanna’s eye catching make up for her new video Where have you been:

Did you and the stylist, Mel Ottenberg, work together on these looks?

We kind of worked together but sort of over the phone at first. It was all very quick. I think they were doing the wardrobe fitting before the first day of the video, so they probably had gathered a lot of things like I had.

Did Rihanna give a lot of creative input on these makeup looks?

Yes, she absolutely did! She approved everything. It was great when she would be excited about a specific look. And the look with the gold on her face? That was actually her idea!
