Like a kept wife who just got her husband’s credit cards smile is the wattage that Rihanna’s color “Trophy Wife” will give to your look.
High voltage, sexy and striking this color is. The product is a highlighter, however, I myself being a woman of a certain age, used it as an eye shadow. It fit perfectly in with the Steeler’s football teams’ colors- gold, black and white. “Trophy Wife” stands on her own.

INCLUSIVE: Included in the makeup line, is whispered 40 shades of foundation which range from light to dark now this, is unprecedented even in the world of established cosmetic brands. As if that’s not enough to build further excitement Fenty Beauty’s ad campaign features religious diversity and different skin tone inclusions. This is a highly anticipated drop for the makeup world.
THE PRODUCTS: So far some of the visuals include a bronze toned highlight duo called “Killowatt” and although we are unsure what type of product the next color is, (it looks like an eye shadow) “Trophy Wife” is a true gold color.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this product!
I love what I do. Support me here,here, or here. If you enjoyed the article or learned something new.. please leave a like or follow. It’s important and encouraging to bloggers.
Just in case you’re in the market for a red, white and blue look. SIDEBAR: I STRONGLY believe in natural looking brows. ALSO I NEVER FILTER OR MANIPULATE MY TECHNIQUE.
You can find the silver plated hoop earrings here.
I LOVE the result. The look is relatively simple, the only thing you work hard at is blending because we want the makeup to look like there was hardly any work involved. The blending technique is effortless with the brands I used together.
BASE: My favorite primer is a glitter primer, but I use it to for my colors to adhere- it is Too Faced “Glitter Bonding Glue” I use a white base and to avoid creasing I bake with Laura Mercier “Translucent Loose Setting Powder” in that order.
EYES: Clinique “Wear Everywhere Greys” palette on the lid (the 5th color from the left) make sure to pat on-also before going to next step add the 5th silver color to transition seamlessly in the BH Cosmetics “Foil Palette” (the color is not named but it’s the darkest blue) MAC “Swiss Chocolate” in the crease as a transition color and MAC “Naked Lunch” as highlight. BLEND BABY BLEND!
LASHES: Ardell “Wispy Natural” lashes and for drama I added blue Make Up Forever glitter on the lash line.
FACE: Smashbox CC Crème in the color “Medium Dark”
LIPS: NK Wine (discontinued-once I find a compatible red, I stick with it) with a red beauty supply gloss atop. Any brand will do, just make sure it’s a true red.
I absolutely loved doing this look. This is one of those looks that most people can pull off if done correctly.
EARRINGS:Can’t go wrong with a pair of hoops! Get yours here.
EYES:The colors are vibrant and compliment one another. I decided to use Make Up Forever No.9 and Nars duo palette in South Pacific which, are pricey brands but in my opinion the color payoff justifies the price. Make Up Forever and Nars eye shadows blend well with other products and they last long after application. I also used Ardell brand – “Demi Wispies” for the top lashes and, rounding out this colorful eye look on my bottom lashes is NYX mascara; color CM02 Blue/Bleu. Any white eyeliner will do for the waterline. (While researching the products on this look, I discovered that Nars and Make Up Forever have discontinued these colors however; the BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Palette will give a similar look for less.)
*I will use BH COSMETICS and do the same look another day* I did a look here.
LIPS: Beauty store brand NK color A12 lip liner and Maybelline“Raw Chocolate” (Every time I see this color I buy it) reminds me of old Hollywood. Their whole Color Sensational buff lipstick line is amazing.
P.S. I am trying products for oily eyelids…. stay tuned.
Hello everyone it’s Kanesha once again, I hope your day went wonderfully well and you escaped the troubles that we go through on a daily basis with the help of love, family, and friends. I did a lot today but one thing I didn’t forget to do was to makeup this face of mine. I thought it turned out beautiful and wanted to share it with you.
For the eyes I used a waterproof matte pencil as a base by Sephora in the color “Let It Snow“, on the front half of my eyes I used the pinkest color in the BH Cosmetics “Foil Eyes” palette (it’s on the first column, bottom row), on the middle of the eye I used the color that looks plumb (3rd column, bottom row) and on the outer “v” I used a color by NARS called “Lulu” and MAC “Carbon” to deepen it up. Yes, it’s a process. But you can do it! For the crease I used MAC “Swiss Chocolate” as a transition color and finally for the highlight I used one of the color from the NARS palette called “Hula, Hula.” Under eye I went back to the BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes palette and went to the 3rd row, 2cnd color, it is the one that is the closest color to purple. I also used the Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art glitter in “GreenGlimmer”
Of course last but not least on the eyes massive amounts of mascara.
On the lips I used a liner by Milani called”03 Nude” and the lipstick I used is by MAYBELLINE ColorSensational called “Nude Lust.” This lipstick is my go to if I am wearing a strong eye.
My thoughts on the palette? Overall the palette is pretty, fairly pigmented, and worth the price. It retails for around $12.00 but shipping pushes it out to about $17.00, (it’s on sale for $9.99) which still isn’t unacceptable. One has to work with the color for a good payoff and you are definitely going to need a white or colored base to make it pop. If you are a deeper toned woman you may want to go with richer colors to compliment your skin tone and if you are fairer toned you may want to go warmer colors to get the look you’re going for.
