A Fan Recreated Rihanna’s British Vogue Cover, Flowers and All
A Fan Recreated One Atalanta makeup artist has put her spin on Rihanna’s September 2018 British Vogue cover. The singer’s statement-making cover was recently unveiled near the end of July and has spurred a conversation regarding the possible reemergence of thin eyebrows.
Ariel Thomas, who goes by Jay Thomas on social media, felt particularly inspired by the look and posted her version on social media, writing, “💐Inspired💐 by @rihanna ‘s @BritishVogue shoot! When I saw this I couldn’t help but try to recreate!”
Her makeup must-haves for the look included the Norvina Palette, lipsticks from Colourpop and Beauty Bakerie, and of course, foundation from Fenty Beauty.
Ariel shared that she almost decided not to do the look, as she has never really done a makeup routine quite this intensive before. However, she credits her family with encouraging her to try. “I felt so accomplished when I had finished and then reviewed the shots I got,” she said.
Followers on Twitter and Instagram have been equally impressed by the makeup work. “This is so spot on and perfect wow omg,” one person on Twitter commented. Another follower even congratulated Ariel, writing, “You did a great job…amazing!” While some have also inquired as to how Ariel was able to recreate such a high fashion shoot.
The positive reactions from social media have made Ariel feel “so happy,” and she’s hopeful that maybe Rihanna herself will come across the look. “If Rihanna saw my post I would probably cry a little bit, no lie,” she said. That would be amazing.”
