Whether you're someone that plans your Halloween outfit months in advance or waits until the last minute, Rihanna is making it easier on us all.

Staying true to her role as a trendsetter, the "Wild Thoughts" singer celebrated the launch of her newest venture, Fenty Beauty, in the October issue of Elle magazine. One of the two covers published includes a head shot of the beauty entrepreneur, wearing loose bantu knots and a brilliant purple-toned heart. It's epic. The heart, created by James Kaliardos, is easily recognizable and achievable—perfect for Halloween.

Although it appears high fashion, the look is simple to recreate. It's mostly highlighter, a product the star considers a must.

"My finishing touch is usually my highlighter," she told Elle. "I love highlighter—it just adds this sense of fantasy to any look."

The purple makeup is our Halloween fantasy—it's easy to do and doesn't require a lot of planning. With help with PRIV makeup artist Jared Lipscomb, we broke down the beautiful and impactful look into eight steps, so you can recreate the look for the holiday. Follow our E!ssentials guide below!
