    Michelle Obama Wearing Fenty Beauty To Joe Biden's Inauguration Is One More Reason To Love Her Look

    How did I miss this??

    Michelle Obama was a vision of style and grace (as per usual) at President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's inauguration yesterday. And as it turns out, her perfectly fitted Sergio Hudson–designed outfit wasn't the only thing to obsess over. The former first lady was also wearing Fenty Beauty, which is one more reason to love her look.

    Michelle’s longtime makeup artist, Carl Ray, gave her a gorgeous smoky eye by Rihanna's Fenty Beauty that perfectly complemented her burgundy outfit.

    RiRi, are you freaking out rn?

    Ray detailed the products he used on the former first lady’s gorg face in an interview with Elle, which included Fenty Matchstix Contour and Fenty Flyliner liquid eyeliner. He described the eyeliner as a "true inky black that stays put all day and night." Truth.

    If you're an eyeliner aficionado, like me, you already know just how good Flyliner is. It goes on smooth and stays on like nobody’s business. Our goddess RiRi knew what she was doing when she was cooking it up in the Fenty makeup lab!

    Ray, who has been working with Michelle since 2009, also used products from Pat McGrath, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Glossier, Laura Mercier, Viseart, and Lily Lashes — the cherry on top of that dramatique eye look.

    BRB, going to copy Michelle’s entire beauty look now!
