Nothing illustrates Rihanna’s beauty prowess better than the amount of time it took her much sought-after RiRi Woo lipstick for MAC to sell out (a mere three hours). But what *truly* makes her such a queen in the beauty department is the fact that she tries just about EVERYTHING out, learns from her experiments, and shares the wealth. That usually manifests as a new MAC collab, but this time it's coming in the form of advice straight from RiRi herself!
Elle linked up with the style icon for a brief chat about her forthcoming Viva Glam collection (the proceeds of which will go to benefit those affected by HIV/AIDS), and the Q&A is full of solid-gold quotes.
Along with her v. unexpected nomination for "World's Sexiest Man" and the choice Leonardo DiCaprio quote she lives by, she drops serious knowledge on the all-powerful effects of lipstick. "It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they're wearing a full face of makeup," she starts, finishing expertly: "And guys are stupid—they won't notice when you're not." LOL, RIH ILY 4EVER.
