Seventeen-year-old Francisco Avena of St. Paul High School in Santa Fe Springs, California, surprised his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Jacqueline Calderon, with a Fenty Beauty-inspired proposal to their upcoming homecoming dance.

Avena fashioned a Fenty-shaped sign emblazoned with “Will you be my Trophy Wife at HOCO?” along with a Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife Killawat highlighter.

“HOCO is a glow. He knows me so well,” Calderon posted on Instagram.

“He involved Fenty because he knows that I love makeup,” Calderon told Radio.com. “Yes, I was very surprised.”

“Yes, we hope Rhianna sees the proposal,” she continued. “We were both super surprised to hear that the proposal was going viral. It was crazy!”
