Fenty Beauty is a cosmetics brand founded in 2017 by artist, actress, fashion designer, and businesswoman Rihanna. As her first solo cosmetics brand, Rihanna signed a deal to produce the line through LVMH’s Kendo division. Notoriously known for their inclusivity, Fenty Beauty was created by Rihanna “so that people everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of traditionally difficult-to-match skin tones, developing formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. Above all, her vision is to inspire: “Makeup is there for you to have fun with.” It should never feel pressed. It should never feel like you’re wearing a uniform. Feel free to experiment, to take risks, and to try something new or different.”
