Rihanna locks in Makeup Deal with MAC

rihanna-mac_510x349

One week after Rihanna presented her first fashion show for River Island the pop princess has moved onto her next stylish venture: a makeup collection for MAC.

The collaboration — which the Rihanna called “a no-brainer” — will include multiple collections of color cosmetics due in stores this year, according to WWD. The first item to hit shelves: RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by the Grammy singer’s favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo, that will release in time with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. MAC will open a pop-up shop on trihanna-grammy-waves-red-lipstick-h724he first night to showcase the line.

 

“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC,” the singer told WWD. “Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”

While MAC has worked with several entertainers in the past in partnerships including their annual Viva Glam campaign, this is the first time that the brand has done a celebrity collaboration on more than just a one-off  product. The deal also marks Rihanna’s first makeup line.

I posted a pick of a small makeup compact that my friend @hammyharris ( follow her on instagram and twitter) gave me. I was so excited about it because It will live in my purse so I will always have  my essentials( Eye shadow, blush and lip gloss). I posted a pick of the compact on instagram( follow me @londonkimble) and  Ms. Alphaglam asked me where she could find one for herself… this promoted me to 1st share the compact with you guys and secondly offer Ms.Alphaglam some buying options. Along with this compact I keep and eye shadow primer, mascara and facial primer with me. Those are the key ingredients for a quick face on the go.

1. Bundle Master Pro 15.99

2.Sephora ‘Shopping Bag’ Palette $10- $24  (avail around Xmas)

  3. Swag Bag Makeup Compact $10 (Here another link)

* #3 is the one I was given. The eyes shadows work much better with an eye shadow primer.

Makeup Bag: Highlight and Contouring Like Kim Kardashian

Kim-Kardashian-Before-and-After

If your familiar with The Style Rundown or follow me on Instagram(@londonkimble) you know I love all things makeup. By no means am I am I a  lady who wears makeup everyday, I just have too much to do in one day. Although my days maybe filled to the brim I’m still a makeup lover and studier.  Regardless of how you make feel about her, Kim Kardashian’s makeup is ALWAYS on point. Recently, on her blog she gave us a glimpse of how she achiever her high cheekbones and exotic look with the use of make up.

Contouring is a makeup technique that utilizes concealer or non shimmer bronzer to help change the shape of your face. It can elongate your profile, raise your cheekbones, soften, make your nose smaller, etc. When done correctly, contouring accentuates the positive attributes of your facial features and gives you a ready for the camera look. Contouring combined with highlighting allows for you to change the shape and highlight the features you want to highlight.

The pro contouring  and highlight was done by makeup impresario Scott Barnes, and he takes us through the contouring process with Kim, displaying how she goes from reg to fab!
