Rihanna has been putting in the werk lately.
Whether it's adding to her beauty empire, handling Fenty Beauty marketing woes with class or staring in Donald Glover's film that nobody really knows anything about, Rihanna has been keeping herself busy. While fans continue to beg and plead for new music, the singer turned beauty mogul is focusing on building an empire outside of music, for now.
And as her world takeover continues, the Bajan-beauty took to social media to announce she will grace the cover of Harper Bazaar's May issue. Of the few sneak-peak shots dropped on both the publication and Rihanna's Instagram, one offers a close-up look at quite possibly her best makeup look yet.
If this season's runways are anything to go by, bold colours are set to be the trend of summer - makeup included. Posing as cover girl, Rihanna wears a multicoloured Maison Margiela Artisanal by John Galliano couture jumpsuit and hat paired with a full face of technicolour makeup.
To create Rihanna's rainbow inspired lids, makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench used an array of products from the pop star's Fenty Beauty brand, including the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Chilli Mango, Summer Daze & Summer Nights Iridescent Lip Luminizer Trios and Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter in Mimosa Sunrise/Sangria Sunset.
Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick, €26, Fenty Beauty
Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, €20, Fenty Beauty
Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter, €34, Fenty Beauty
In images from the editorial spread inside, the Fenty founder models even more shades from head to toe in a rainbow fringed jacket and shoes by Givenchy, a vibrant purple Valentino Haute Couture gown and a baby blue embellished Chanel Haute Couture dress with matching hair accessories.

While the other teased images showcase Rihanna looking right into our souls behind a white, netted veil - her graphic liner and understated lip operate as the perfect juxtaposition to that of her birds of paradise look.
So if you'll excuse us, we're going to step out of our smokey brown eye look.
