We thought someone would rock Fenty Beauty ‘Trophy Wife’ and bring that highlighter to life, but come through Pro Filt’r Foundation and accept the award for Halloween 2017!

Many people may have worn Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty foundation as part of their makeup look for Halloween 2017, but one fan literally and figuratively WORE the Pro Filt’r 450.

Alicia Alexandria is a multifaceted creative. She has a background in photography and is the one woman behind Alexandria Productions.

Already known for creativity in her circles, she posted her Halloween costume with the caption ‘Pro Filt'r 450 warm #FentyBeauty #fentybeautyfoundation #glossbomb #profltrfoundation #EdGoodBurger #ayeshacurry #badcop #Doctor’

Her squad comprised herself as the Pro Filt’r Foundation and her friends were dressed up as Ed Good Burger, Ayesha Curry, a bad cop and a doctor. Alicia gave photo credits to @bloverr, Brittni.

Some people commented on the photo and tagged @badgalriri because Alicia herself had not done such.

And her effort, along with their @s did not go unnoticed by the creator of her inspiration – Rihanna.

Rihanna posted Alicia in her costume next to a stick of the Pro Filt’r 450 Foundation and captioned the collage, ‘Pro Filt'R 450 Happy Halloween’.

In five days on Alicia’s IG account her original photo received 4 661 likes, meanwhile on Rihanna’s page her collage has racked up 872 847 likes in just three days.

Ecstatic, Alicia took a screenshot of Rihanna’s post and expressed her gratitude in a lengthy caption and she brought clarity as to how she came to step out the house in the costume in the first place.

“The ULTIMATE #RIHpost: Thank you @badgalriri soooo much for the #RIHpost My Life is MADE!

“My vision/design came to LIFEE! I made the costume myself...cut the letters out and pasted them on myself! I honestly wasn't going to even dress up since I had SO MUCH TROUBLE finding a dress in my complexion to fit my vision. I conceived this idea while in traffic driving through DTLA.

“I appreciate Rihanna for creating a product in every shade/skin tone! I am happy to see that my creative vision has inspired soo many to make their ideas come to life!”

And she did miss the opportunity to put her business out there as well like a true entrepreneur.

“I hope to use my black-owned business @alexandriaproductions to promote the awareness of beauty in ALL SHADES through my content I would love the opportunity to collaborate with other creators, esp @badgalriri @fentybeauty Creative team, Art Directors, Designers etc... to further promote diversity and inclusion in all creative content the world sees,” she added.
