Rihanna, born Robyn Fenty, is a 33-year-old singer and actress from Barbados. After getting her first record signed at the age of 16, she went on to produce hit songs like “Diamonds,” “Disturbia” and “Shut Up and Drive.”
Although she’s best known for her contributions to the entertainment industry, fans might not have guessed that Rihanna is also an amazing entrepreneur as well!
A Beauty Empire
Rihanna has partnered with French luxury goods giant LVMH, which co-owns the makeup brand Fenty Beauty. Not only is she a spokesperson for their makeup line, but she also co-owns the Savage X Fenty lingerie line.
In 2019, they expanded their partnership to include a “new clothing house that will make high-end clothes, shoes, accessories, and jewelry.”
“I’ve always seen the Fenty brand as more than just makeup, and I knew I wanted to make skincare from the very beginning,” Rihanna explained.
“It was just about getting it right. You have to live with the formulas for a while and test them in different ways. It’s very different from makeup in that sense. It takes a long time.”
A lot of the products Rihanna uses include healthy, natural ingredients, like the Barbados cherry.
“That ingredient is packed with a lot of Vitamin C, more than a whole orange, so imagine what that does for your beautiful skin,” she shared.
She also explained that hydration and a healthy diet are key to younger-looking skin, so she makes sure to drink up and use a hydrating mist on long flights.
“People from the best, most exotic islands with access to the best ingredients and stuff like that and the best environment, climate, and humidity – their skin is so beautiful,” she said. “I try to implement a lot of those ingredients into my skincare line.”
A Beauty Icon
Although she prefers a minimalist look in the summer, Rihanna still loves makeup and considers it her “secret weapon.”
“Depending on my mood, my look, or the occasion, makeup can go from very subtle to a complete transformation, and that’s the fun in makeup: being able to play and create in endless ways,” she shared.
