From Barbie-inspired frilly pink frocks to crystal undies and eye-wateringly short shorts, Rihanna never fails to turn heads!

And that's exactly what she did as the host of the much anticipated New York Fashion Week SS16 Party in The Big Apple yesterday evening, but this time it wasn't her outfit choice that set tongues wagging.

RiRi, who launched yet another super-successful fragrance this month, shunned the nudes and reds and made a splash at her very own bash with a bold blue lip - and even though we shouldn't, we totally love it.

Keeping the rest of her make-up to a minimum, the Bajan singer proved that blue hues are most definitely the missing link in our night out make-up routine - how amazing does she look?!

The star, who invited the likes of Kim Kardashian and rapper hubby Kanye West to her swanky get-together offset her unique beauty look with a flowing white dress over black flared trousers which let her bright, eye-popping lips do most of the talking.

If you're feeling brave like our Ri, here's how you can channel the trend - without looking like you've got frostbite.

We're crushing over Nizz Cosmetics' extensive range of lippies and their shimmer flecked Virgo Blue hue, £9.99 is a surefire match! If sparkle isn't your thing, opt for a blanket of Beijing Blue instead - it's just as sassy minus the metallic sheen.

For colour that stays put for hours on end, blot using a tissue after the first application, then go for a second helping of lipstick.

Once you've applied a slick of blue to your lips, make like the professionals and sharpen up the edges with a touch of concealer. Take the Makeup Revolution's handy Concealer Brush, £1.99 and swipe gently over the Maybelline Concealer Stick, £3.99 - then clean up your lip line starting from the bottom.
