Rihanna - Who's That Chick (Day Version) Inspired Makeup

Hi guys!
I generally don't go for really bright colours, but after seeing both versions of Rihanna's video for Who's That Chick I really fell in love with the bright look she's wearing in the day version of the video. I definitely wouldn't go around wearing this - the blush is a bit too crazy for my liking! But it was still fun to re-create. 
I actually did this look yesterday, but was wearing the black wig from my Elphaba look - I'm not sure what posessed me but I really didn't like how the photos turned out - though I did like the eye makeup better so I'll include a photo of that. 
I used an iridescent green shadow for the highlight as in some angles of the music video you can see a definite green cast on the brow bone and slightly above the brow.

Products Used:
Face -
Maybelline - Dream Satin Liquid Foundation  (really been liking this foundation lately)
Boujoir Healthy Mix Concealer
Revlon Skinlights (discontinued - liquid hilighter/bronzer depending on shade) bronze shade applied lightly
Super pink blush - mixed bright pink shades from 120 palette,contoured with a deeper pink mixed with a deep purple.
**I did forget to powder hence the slightly overly-dewy skin

Eyes -
Cut crease - MAC Brun and Copperplate
Lid - matte bright yellow from 120 palette
Lower lashline - lined with black shadow, neon green shadow from 120 palette. 
Benefit Bad Gal Liner - lower lashline 
Eyeko Grafitti Liner - Black

2 sets of eBay lashes (sorry no name on them!)

Eye makeup from yesterday's version.
