I am a huge fan of music. All kinds. One minute I can be listening to country and the next I will be listening to 90s rap. One of my current favorite
earworms songs is Bitch Better Have My Money by Rihanna. It is so catchy, pretty powerful and the video is just… wow. I thought it would be REALLY fun to create a BBHMM inspired makeup look and this is what I came up with.
In the video Rihanna is actually wearing stark red smoky eyes and a blacked lip color. I don’t happen to particularly like red eyeshadows on me so I opted for a more wearable burgundy shade, if you call this smoky eye wearable–still pretty dramatic in my eyes. I am kind of obsessed with how it turned out. I used some orange based mid tone tans as my transition shade and it worked amazingly well.
The look is pretty easy to do, but the shades are what I find out of my ordinary. All that being said I really like it and I think I want to venture into more burgundy looks during the fall. I really like how the shades pulled the green out of my honey golden/hazel eyes.

I filmed a tutorial on the look and placed it on YouTube. I hope you watch it and love it. I need to warn you that I shot it in the middle of the night and my lighting was a little off but I think I made it work. Not only did I create a look but so did Phyrra. She did a completely different look from the same video and I think you will love it. You know she can pull of some fun shades and her blue lips are pretty awesome.
