Halloween Ideas: Rihanna 2016 VMAs Look

Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m excited to start sharing some halloween ideas with you. Let’s start off with this Rihanna 2016 VMAs look. Remember when Drake presented Rihanna the Vanguard award, professing his love for her at the same time? Oooh weee! Well, Rihanna was smokin’ hot – from that vampy makeup to her wet hair look… oh and her dress designed by Alexandre Vauthier? That ball gown was so badass with the military inspired details. Let’s get to it then!


Rihanna 2016 VMAs Look: Makeup

I created a video for the beauty tutorial to get Rihanna’s look. Please watch it below.

Products Used

Now if you’re wondering what products I used for this makeup look, I’ve listed them all below.


How to Get Rihanna’s Hair

Now that we’re done with the makeup, let’s get to the hair!





Voila! Back to long hair!



  • Next, I used the MOP leave-in conditioner on my hair and brushed up the top section of my hair. If you want to tease that top part, it’s up to you. For this example, I skipped the teasing.


  • I then used the MOP molding cream to hold either side of the hair. You can brush it sideways and secure with a bobby pin if you like. I wanted mine to look a little rough – like I just performed a whole bunch of songs at the VMAs ala Rihanna. Haha!


  • Finally, a hairspray like this MOP Firm Finish Hairspray will keep everything in place. Guys, this is an eco-friendly, zero-impact aerosol spray that contains fruit and citrus extracts for optimal hold, anti-oxidant support and UV protection. I was pretty impressed with it too!


Finish the Look

And there you have it… the finished halloween hair and makeup inspired by Rihanna 2016 VMAs look! Oh and by the way, since her ballgown had those trench coat details, I wore a trench coat to mimic her outfit. And don’t forget to wear some statement earrings too!
