Rihanna’s long-awaited Super Bowl halftime show last night has got everybody talking today – not least because of the star’s surprise pregnancy reveal.

The singer wowed at the State Farm Stadium, performing hits such as Diamonds, Umbrella and Rude Boy in front of a celeb-packed audience. Her head-to-toe red outfit perfectly showed off her growing baby bump, and her glam look was completed with a slicked-back high ponytail, sparkly eyeshadow and deep red lipstick.

And it probably comes as no surprise that this make-up look was created using products from Rihanna’s own brand, Fenty Beauty. The singer even took the opportunity to score a little free advertising when the cameras caught her touching up her own make-up mid-way through the performance using a Fenty product. According to Landys Chemist, online searches for the brand soared by 1,150% following this viral make-up moment.

Fenty’s global make-up artist Priscilla Ono reveals this inspiration behind the 34 year old’s make-up. “That red stage called for the ultimate Rihanna red lip,” she said. “We wanted her beauty look to celebrate this moment and be a true reflection of her timeless beauty. And to me, there’s nothing more iconic to Rihanna than her soft matte skin and a bold red lip.”

Here’s exactly what make-up products were used on the star…

Rihanna put on an incredible performance at the Super Bowl

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, £34 here

Rihanna’s skin was first prepped with products from Fenty Skin, including this lightweight face cream. “This is the perfect pre-make-up moisturiser because it nourishes the skin and is undetectable under foundation,” said Priscilla. “You don’t have to worry about your complexion products fading or moving, which is so important, especially for performance make-up.”

Priscilla applied thin layers of this long-lasting foundation along with Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation for a skin-like look that still stayed in place throughout the performance. One of Fenty Beauty’s first ever products, this foundation broke boundaries when it launched because of its impressive shade range (there are 50 to pick from).

Rihanna’s red lip was created using this new Fenty product – a highly pigmented, whipped liquid lipstick that won’t dry lips out. This particular shade is a bold red with blue undertones, and is great for making teeth look whiter and brighter.
