Make-Up Artist James Kaliardos Takes Highlighting to the Extreme on the Fenty Runway
Who doesn’t want to look like Rihanna? With the recent launch of her Fenty Beauty by Rihanna line, it’s now easier than ever to recreate her iconic looks. Makeup artist James Kaliardos demonstrates how to get the “Fenty Face” from the Fenty x Puma Spring 2018 show in just 3 simple steps.
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation • $34
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Match Stix Matte Skinstick • $25
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick • $25
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter • $34
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Invisimatte Blotting Powder • $32

Step 1: Start with a flawless matte base like the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, which comes in 40 (yes 40!!!) shades to fit any skin tone.
Step 2: Highlight to the gods. To replicate Kaliardos’ look, layer and blend multiple colors together on the high points of your face- tops of the cheeks, temples, Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose, and inner corners of the eyes- for an all-over multi-chromatic iridescence. Try the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in shades like Confetti (iridescent opal) and Blonde (glimmering gold) layered with the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in the standout glittery metalllic gold shade Trophy Wife, duo pan shades like Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby (soft champagne sheen/supercharged peachy champagne shimmer) for light to medium skin tones, or Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule (soft copper sheen/supercharged copper shimmer) for deep to dark skin tones.
