Check Out Rihanna's Intergalactic Makeup By Isamaya Ffrench
The new music video for Rihanna’s “Sledgehammer” opens by tunneling through galaxies to land on a Lisa Frank-esque planet where Rihanna is doing some sexy tai chi. It’s fitting, as “Sledgehammer” is the theme song for the new movie Star Trek Beyond, which she’s a pretty big fan of—the franchise even inspired RiRi’s recent, super-futuristic Dior shades. Guys, Rihanna is a total nerd.
The Barbadian singer/majestic wonder is styled as an alien in a draped, rust-colored tarp, and she also kind of looks like a very sexy lamp shade. Her alien makeup is especially on point. One of our favorite makeup artists, Isamaya Ffrench, did the bad gal’s lewk. Ffrench is known for her refreshing, incredibly artful take on makeup design—she makes everything, from prosthetics to edible cosmetics. Ffrench’s designs on Rihanna are flawless, featuring tribal inspired markings, singular lip coloring, and neutral eyebrows.
But wait, can we also address this hairstyle? Is this the future for top buns? I guarantee you’ll see Rihanna’s top pony tail as the hottest new hairstyle next fashion week. Paging all intergalactic babes. And Ffrench’s abstract markings truly take the alien Rihanna out of this world. Live long and prosper.
Stay tuned to Milk for more Rihanna, always.
