Rihanna’s new music video for “Where Have You Been” debuted this week, and the pop star experimented with some bold beauty looks for the clip.

I wanted to give Rihanna’s look a slight tribal nod while keeping things young and sexy.” And that’s not all! Click through the gallery for more behind-the-scenes makeup details from Kabuki.
