Riri has an on-point eyelash game with long illustrious lashes that are the envy of any woman dedicated to a cosmetic look. With eyelashes so long and thick it’s not likely that Rihanna’s lashes are real.
Rihanna wears false eyelashes and even has an on call eyelash technician. In 2014, it was revealed that the singer was spending at least $30,000 a week on her beauty routine. This included not only her eyelashes, but a dermatologist, a hair stylist, and tanning treatments. Rihanna will only wear human hair extensions too.
You can read more below about Rihanna’s insane beauty routine, the costs involved, and what kind of false eyelashes she wears.
Rihanna’s Weekly Beauty Treatments
In a 2014 article, the Mirror stated that a source reported to them that “[Rihanna] gets laser skin tightening, oxygen facials, photo facials, even the infamous vampire facials. It’s not just her face, she gets laser treatments on her body too.” Wait, a vampire facial?!
In a 2017 Allure article, dermatologist Ava Shamban told the magazine that a vampire facial is the “combination of a microdermabrasion, followed by the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma).” This treatment was most famously received by Kim Kardashian-West. The jury’s out on whether Riri ever actually got one despite reports from the Mirror.
Rihanna is also adamant about keeping her hair game on point. She reportedly only uses real hair for her hair extensions. Her hair stylist, Yusuf Williams, said in a 2017 Refinery29 article that “Rih wants to be a risk taker with her hair and with her style.”
With the launch of her own beauty brand Fenty Beauty, Rihanna has incorporated her own makeup line into her make up game. Rihanna’s makeup artist, Hector Espinal, told Bustle all about the three Fenty products Riri always carries. They are the Fenty Pro Filter Foundation, Invisimatte Blotting Powder, and the Gloss Bomb lip gloss.
Despite having a whole team dedicated to her beauty routine, Rihanna can be pretty hands on with her own styling and makeup. In 2018, she even did a makeup tutorial for Vogue. You can watch the entire tutorial by following the below link to Vogue’s video on YouTube.
Rihanna’s Eyelash Game
On top of all of her crazy beauty routines, Rihanna is reported to keep an eyelash technician on the payroll. The eyelash expert is apparently on call 24/7 to meet Riri’s lashy needs. Rihanna does have some beautiful eyelashes so it’s no surprise that she has an expert create them for her.
In 2014, the brand Esqido released a blog post where it was shared that Rihanna used their false eyelashes to complete her look. In the post, the company stated that “We are pleased to have the talented and beautiful Rihanna wear mink lashes in Lashmopolitan as her lash of choice at the amfAR Inspiration Gala.” Although she may not always wear the company’s lashes, they sure do look beautiful in the pictures from the Gala.
What Does It All Cost?
Rihanna’s beauty payroll is nothing shy of extensive and expensive. In 2010, it was reported that she spent roughly $22,000 a week on her hair alone. That number includes paying for hair extensions, hair color, and a stylist.
In 2014, Lash magazine came out with an article that stated Rihanna spends about $3,800 USD a week on that eyelash technician. Lash further highlighted that she spent about $7,600 USD on her dermatologist and $2,500 on her makeup artist. That is quite the bill to be footing to make sure you look young and healthy.
Despite the tabloid rumors on what Rihanna spends on her beauty routine, most of the products that she has told the public she uses are relatively affordable. A pair of Esqido Lashmopolitan lashes are only $29. The three Fenty Beauty products range from $17 to $30. That means you don’t have to be a millionaire to have a lash game like Riri.
