She’s taking the term “makeup artist” to a whole new level! Alena Wedderburn, better known as @kiss-my-airs- on Instagram, has gone totally viral for her epic portraits of Rihanna. But these aren’t just any portraits, they are portraits painted completely with products from RiRi’s own Fenty Beauty line! Wedderburn’s artwork, which was first discovered by Cosmopolitan, has been causing quite the stir, understandably. Watch the video below to see some of the work she’s created!
In an interview with Cosmo, the 23-year-old artist and Rihanna superfan talked about the inspiration for her work — which is paints directly on her own skin. “I started drawing with makeup two years ago,” she said. “I was pretty much playing around with makeup and started drawing on my leg, and it came out pretty good.”
Her love for the Barbados-born beauty reached a high when she got to meet her backstage at a 2013 concert. “It was an experience of a lifetime for me,” she said. “She is so unbelievably humble and down to earth.” And we think Rihanna appreciates the artwork because she just so happens to be following Wedderburn! This talent is certainly not to be missed.
