Behind the Scenes at Rihanna's CoverGirl Shoot

The “Umbrella” singer is belting out another tune these days: “It’s easy, breezy, beautiful CoverGirl.” In her inaugural ads for the new beauty campaign, Rihanna touts a mean pout with CG’s Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers lipgloss. But she admitted to PEOPLE that her must have product is, “Concealer. It is so important for under the eyes because it just wakes you up.” As a tomboy in her younger days, Rihanna, 19, was not allowed to wear makeup. “I would sneak and do it,” she says. “My mom is a make-up artist so I really wanted to put on makeup and she wouldn’t let me because I was always too young. And now I can because I’m a Cover Girl.” A true product junkie, Rihanna’s favorite on-the-road pastime is not going to the hottest clubs, instead it’s going to CVS! “When me and my best friend get bored at night we go to CVS to buy a bunch of stuff to try. I like different color eyeliner, I love different shades of lipsticks and lip glosses, anything with colors.” Bright colors are perfect for her summer album promotional tour along with her new edgy bob haircut. Rihanna is definitely a “Good Girl Gone Bad”!

Rihanna’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” available June 5th, $9.99 amazon.com. CoverGirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers available in July.

I must really need to crawl out of my shell! I have never heard of this girl…..you think I would working at a high school. I can totally relate to her though, I love trying on makeup and I can spend hours at the drugstore looking through all the different products. She must be a rap star, that’s why I’ve never heard of her.

Only the hottest thing out of Barbados to hit the world stage.

Wow Summer it must have been winter where you live :-)

Summer – I’m with you. Who is this person? Her publicist is really working overtime lately. She does look nice in the photo.

Canadian, eh? on

She looks very pretty here.

Rebecca on

Rihanna looks gorge as usual

Courtney on

I love her! She just seems so real; she’s from a goregous place [Barbados], and SHE is gorgeous. She has a one of a kind voice and I can’t get any of her songs out of my head, especially her new hit “Umbrella.” I think this is gonna be a great year for her :)Can’t wait to see her CoverGirl ads!

NO LONGER WILL I BUY COVER GIRL AS LONG AS RHIANNA IS A SPOKESPERSON. WHAT IS COVER GIRL TRYING TO TELL YOUNG GIRLS WHO USE MAKE-UP? RHIANNA HAS PROBLEMS THAT ALL THE MAKE-UP IN THE WORLD CAN NOT HIDE!

Felisa on

I second what Patricia said. My 19 yr old and I have decided to stop buying your products.

Sherry Berry on

I really dont think Covergirl need all the drama that’s been surrounding Rihanna recently. It would really be sad if they still use Rihanna as their spokesperson after what happened…what will they be promoting?? That it’s okay to stay with a man after he used your face as a punching bag??
