Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 brought the heat to Amazon Prime, with the momentous occasion marking yet another stunning collection of lingerie for all body types. The singer, businesswoman, and beauty mogul invited a bevy of celebrity friends to her fashion show at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles; where top names across fashion, music, and Hollywood came and served — makeup-wise, that is. From Adrianna Lima’s sexy foxy-eye look to Cindy Crawford’s stunning blue eyeshadow, we’ve highlighted the major beauty moments of the fashion event, below.

Act 1: Stairs 

The Fenty Beauty artistry team — led by Fenty Beauty Global Makeup Artists Hector Espinal and Priscilla Ono — created four main looks on over 200 models and dancers just for the show. Striking and edgy but also fun, wearable and approachable; this is what the artists had to say about the thought process behind each unique look. “This look was all about an edgy graphic eye for a modern rocker type of look – bold liner and metallic shadow to enhance everyone’s unique eye shape. We wanted the shininess of the hair to pop against a bright bold liner,” said Espinal. To achieve this, he predominantly used the Killawat Freestyle Highlighter in shade Chillz all over the lids, and added depth and shadow with the Snap Shadow Mix and Match Palette’s 6 Smoky. 

Act 2: Plaza

A fun flirty look, Espinal dished that the key to this aesthetic was that both the eyes and lips featured an ombre design. A range of pinks from a doll-like pink to a deep purple on the eye, and a fuchsia lined lip that blended into a softer pink for the perfect pout. “It’s feminine, sexy and provocative,” said Espinal. He made use of Fenty’s Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour in 3 different shades; Undefeated, Unlocked and Unattached. 

Act 3: Atrium

To create this wet look, Ono was inspired by all the latex in the show, and tells us that it’s actually quite simple to recreate at home. You’ll just need the Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner in Spaghetti Strapz all over the lids topped with the Gloss Bomb’s Glass Slipper for the ‘ Red Latex Eye Look’.

Act 4: Bridges

“ We wanted to create a really cool metal eye that complimented the metal mesh designs that all the models and dancers were wearing. It felt very 70s, very Studio 54,” said Ono. She dished that such pigmented silver always stands out and looks really good on all skin tones, so don’t be afraid to give the bold look a try! You can get this glam at home with the Killawat FreeStyle Highlighter, CLF edition, then accentuate and add shadows on the eye with Snap Shadow Mix and Match Palette’s 1 True Neutrals.
