We know her for her catchy songs and quirky fashion sense, but behind all of that she has always had a passion of makeup. The first time she experienced makeup for herself, she never looked back. And why would she? Look how far she has come… With some many celebrities becoming beauty moguls and creating their own make up lines, where do you fit in with the line up? Being Rihanna of course. Makeup became her weapon of choice, she used to use it as a way of expressing her mood. When she was like everyone of us… Trying on our mums lipsticks and strutting our stuff around the house. Who else is guilty of this? Despite it being halfway down our faces..
If you don’t follow Rihanna’s makeup range Fenty Beauty on Instagram, then you are missing out.. Not only on models looking gorgeous in her sultry makeup, but with new releases and surprises. Teasing isn’t quite the word, and with a new release of a new shade of lipstick, STUNNA, it is worth the follow.
Before told her million followers that she was releasing the line, she had to keep it under lock and key. RiRi wanted to release a line that she could be proud of and mainly so every woman could be included. The line focuses on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. With the first teaser of the Match Stix (wind-up, stick skin formulas for adding colour and contour) included the best of the best packaging. The magnetic packaging that that is both highly satisfying and totally convenient and each application is easy to apply.
Whether you are into contouring your face or if you like to add some highlight to your cheeks, the liquid formulas are (have to be said) the most blendable product. You won’t be going around looking like a Zebra for sure… The powder products are finely made, with a velvet touch. Wake up with a big zit before your date? Fenty Beauty has got your back with the best coverage.
“Makeup is there for you to have fun with,” she says. “It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”
Watch this space for more to come in her collection. She is constantly surprising us with new products, making sure to please everyone. Remember the time where we would struggle to pick a shade? Had to be between orange and pale gale? Those days can be behind us for good.
