Rihanna discusses music + her new M∙A∙C collection...

Speaking exclusively to Heat World, Rihanna sheds some light on her collaboration with M∙A∙C make up.

Rihanna's RiRi Hearts MAC's Fall Collection was made available in stores last month.

We find out the extent of her involvement within the campaign, her love for vampy and bright lip colours, and her take on releasing albums on a yearly basis.

 If you're interested to find out how she manages to design such a fab range, look no further than below!

"As a brand, M·A·C Cosmetics always has fun while taking risks—they are not afraid. We are in the same in that way, and they certainly recognized that. It’s a natural marriage, as we are both not afraid to show our point of views."

"My work with M·A·C doesn’t feel like work. I am involved in the entire process—names, color ways, packaging. I look forward to these kinds of tasks."
"For the fall campaign, we were really inspired by the rose gold packaging of the collection. We used my eye shadow quad in Her Cocoa to complement the metallic theme. For my lips we decided to do something really dark and vampy. We used one of my favorite lipstick shades, Talk That Talk. I actually love wearing vampy lips all year long, but especially in the fall.
My favorite makeup look is really all about the lip. I’m obsessed with lipstick -- so we created RiRi Woo. I could wear that every day."

 "I’m really particular about the texture of my lipsticks. Most of them in my collection are mattes, with the exception of Who’s That Chick which is an orangey frost-- it’s different for me- but I love it."

[On being from the Caribbean] "I think where you’re from always affects your routines. I tend to like warmer looks. I like sheen skin and I love bright lipstick.

Makeup is my super hero. It's been part of my life for so long- I couldn't do without. I really love being
natural too, but sometimes there’s nothing like a good makeup job."

"When I go out, I always reach for a lipstick—a lipstick that is bright or extreme, like RiRi Woo or like something really dark and vampy, like Talk That Talk.

I love making music so I never plan on making the album based on timing. I never say, ‘ok, new year, new album.’ I love making music and it excites me. I end up making my albums really close together. So far it’s been almost one every year. But, who knows? I definitely don’t plan on stopping." Source.
