MTV exclusively interviews make up artist ‘Kabuki’ who is responsible for Rihanna’s eye catching make up for her new video Where have you been:
Did you and the stylist, Mel Ottenberg, work together on these looks?
We kind of worked together but sort of over the phone at first. It was all very quick. I think they were doing the wardrobe fitting before the first day of the video, so they probably had gathered a lot of things like I had.
Did Rihanna give a lot of creative input on these makeup looks?
Yes, she absolutely did! She approved everything. It was great when she would be excited about a specific look. And the look with the gold on her face? That was actually her idea!
