Rihanna’s most iconic glam moments can be credited to Priscilla Ono. Since becoming Fenty Beauty’s Global Makeup Artist, the California native and proud Latina has created a number of memorable looks for the multi-hyphenate superstar, from iconic Met Gala moments to her show-stopping Super Bowl performance.
In addition to being hand-picked by Rih (fun fact: the star first spotted Ono in 2011 on the set of her “S&M” music video), the celebrity makeup artist also aids in developing training tools to educate thousands of Sephora makeup artists worldwide, lending her diverse experience and masterful hand to Fenty Beauty’s game-changing product launches.
Speaking of products, while Ono’s certainly a super fan of all things Fenty Beauty (she’s currently obsessed with the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation because “it creates this perfect skin-like finish with a blurred effect that looks great IRL), she’s also an expert shopper when it comes to home, travel and self-care essentials. Here, Ono reveals her current favorite things, from the candles she keeps in her kit to her on-the-go massage replacement.
“Mountain Valley Spring Water gives me life! I love the glass bottle because it’s eco-friendly and elevated. Plus, I always keep the one-liter size bottle with me because it helps me keep track of my hydration at home and on the go.”
“I’m always traveling the world with Fenty Beauty and Rihanna so having sturdy, quality luggage is essential for me. I love Rimowa’s Essential Trunk Plus because the trunk shape keeps all my makeup organizers stacked and secure.”
“As a makeup artist, I’m on my feet 12 hours a day — sometimes longer! HOKA sneakers are great for standing long periods of time and are my go-to for long set days.”
“I love to perform oxygen facials on myself when my skin needs that little extra hydration. I even give Rihanna oxygen facials as added skin prep before a big event or red carpet. Having a well-hydrated complexion is the first step before any makeup application. I love Le Mieux’s oxygen infuser.“
“Lighting is so important when it comes to doing makeup. I love The Makeup Light Jet Light Kit because it always ensures I have the best lighting for doing makeup and is really easy to travel with. It comes with different plugs for different countries.”

“I always have Dyptique Baies Candle in my home and my kit. It’s such a mood changer to have a nice-smelling room. This particular scent is loved by everyone — I’ve yet to come across someone who doesn’t like it.”
“I love a good coordinating two-piece set, especially for traveling. It’s an easy grab. You always look put together in a matching set. Savage X Fenty’s sweat sets are designed by Rihanna so they look cute AF!”
Savage x Fenty
“The Theragun Pro is a lifesaver when you can’t get a massage or have time to see your chiropractor. It really gets those knots and tensions out!”
“I can finally blow dry my own hair and get salon results with the Dyson Airwrap Styler. It’s such a game changer. And, while it’s definitely an investment at first, it ultimately saves me money and time from going to get blowdrys all the times at the salon!”

“I’m a proud matcha lover. My day doesn’t start until I have a Starbucks Iced Matcha Tea Latte. I don’t drink coffee, so this is my go-to when I need a little refresher or boost.”
