BEAUTY BITES

ELLE (Malaysia) - - COVER STAR -

ELLE: When did you first wear lip­stick? Rihanna: Lip­stick al­ways got me in trou­ble. Whether it was at home as a kid, or my early teenage years in my ca­reer, I al­ways had the urge to wear it. So I broke all those rules. Now lip­stick is like my lit­tle se­cret weapon! ELLE: What is the cra­zi­est thing you’ve done for beauty? Would you do it again? Rihanna: A corset! I’d do it again, though. I’d wear it ev­ery day if I could make it out alive! ELLE: Of all the celebri­ties you’ve met, who smells the best? Rihanna: [Pho­tog­ra­phers] Inez and Vi­noodh! Inez smells de­li­cious. She ac­tu­ally gifted me her scent, be­cause I al­ways asked her about it.

ELLE: What makes you feel ‘done’, beauty-wise?

Rihanna: My fin­ish­ing touch is usu­ally my high­lighter. I love high­lighter – it adds this sense of fan­tasy to any look. ELLE: Who’s your hair idol?

Rihanna: This is prob­a­bly con­fus­ing to most, but it’s in be­tween Toni Brax­ton from back in the day with all her short hair­cuts… and Cindy Craw­ford. She had the most ef­fort­less yet stun­ning hair. ELLE: Who’s your makeup idol?

Rihanna: I have to go with Ver­uschka. She made makeup look like silk!
