A long overdue makeup tutorial for you lovelies. This one was requested by a few of my subscribers. It's the lilac look that Rihanna sported in her newest music video "What's my name". I really like the look, it's really girly and fresh, and she looks stunning! I delved right into my collection and played around with a few pieces, and here's what I came up with...

your look for this video is the best one I've seen on youtube so far (and I've seen many!)
not only does it look amazing on you, but it actually looks the exact same as she had it done in the video
