Recently, Rihanna has received lots of praise for her Fenty beauty line. Riri really does it all. This Barbadian singer writes music and acts and now, runs a makeup line. Can she get any cooler?
Oh, if you’re wondering, Fenty comes from Rihanna’s name, Robyn Rihanna Fenty. She came out with Fenty x Puma in the fall of 2017. Shortly after the release, she became the first woman to win Footwear New’s Shoe of the Year Award. In September 2017, Rihanna launched her beauty line. After years of frustration with the void in the makeup industry for women of all skin tones, Riri came up with her own solution.
Riri launched Fenty Beauty to include women of all skin types and tones, and immediately received wide praise for her groundbreaking makeup line. Women are ecstatic with the products, especially women of color who have long been needing more complex options. Naturally, the makeup line was listed in Time magazine as one of “The 25 Best Inventions of 2017.”
Not Just Fenty
Obviously, Rihanna is sensational all around and not just for her Fenty lines. We have to talk about her nonstop hits in the music industry. Also, in late January 2018 she officially made the top 40 charts for the 50th time, making her the second female in history to do this. It was her feature on N.E.R.D.’s “Lemon” that became her 50th Top 40 hit. She’s the eighth person to have at least fifty Top 40 hits, sharing the honor with legends like Elvis. Her album Anti had six tracks that hit number one. Anti is an album you need to listen to all the way through. From “Kiss It Better” to “Love On The Brain,” you’ll see a soulful, old-timey side of Riri that you wish you knew about long ago. Oh and she’s got some fun ones on there too, but don’t take my word for it. Listen yourself!
