About Fenty Beauty and Rihanna

During 2003, she recorded demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers and signed a recording contract with Def. Jam Recordings. Soon after auditioning for its previous president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z.  In 2005, Rihanna rose to fame with the release of her debut studio album, “Music of the Sun” and its follow-up “A Girl like Me in 2006. Both which charted on the Top 10 of the US Billboard 200 and respectively produced the singles “Pon de Replay” and “SOS“.

She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street. Rihanna’s childhood was deeply affected by her father’s addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, which contributed to her parents’ strained marriage. “My mom wasn’t flexible. I wore no makeup.” Though she was not allowed to wear makeup back then, Rihanna says her mom who worked at a cosmetics store back in the day, inspired her passion for makeup and perfume. Rihanna was inspired to create “Fenty Beauty” after years of experimenting with the best-of-the-best in beauty. She launched a makeup line “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones. Rihanna created formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointed universal shades.

“Fenty Beauty” products are made to feel lightweight, even as they deliver buildable coverage that effortlessly layers, to ultimately “make skin look like skin.” Most importantly, Rihanna creates makeup to inspire “Makeup is there for you to have fun with. 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.”
