In the not-too-distant past the music world was more than happy to welcome a new Barbadian talented singer Rihanna, who amazed the audience with her sweet voice, standing under her umbrella. Very few could guess then that soon the pop diva would try her hand at fashion design and would do it quite successfully. Her debut in this world was the collaboration with Giorgio Armani, which resulted in launching a collection of RiRi-style pieces. Then a myriad of collaborations followed one after another, including those with River Island, Dior and Puma. The bad gal went even further by launching a capsule collection for MAC Cosmetics and creating her own line of fragrances. Her next step is more than evident. With so much experience in the fashion and beauty industry under her belt, let us agree that it is a must for the Barbadian girl to release her own beauty line, given that thousands of her fans are looking forward to that. The first time we got to know about her plans concerning a beauty line was a year ago when she registered the “Fenty Beauty” trademark. Throughout a year the pop diva has been silent. Finally, in an interview Refinery29 on Rihanna’s latest fragrance, RiRi, she spread the word that “Fenty Beauty” was what she had always desired to bring into life and she would do it very soon between albums and fragrance launches.
Staying calm after the statement is not that much easy. What is left to us is trying to guess the line’s features, products and tints. As Rihanna herself describes Fenty Beauty comes to be something far from reality. She says: “There are a lot! Lashes that could just put themselves on…lipstick that doesn’t move, but doesn’t dry your lips out, that you don’t need a liner for. I mean, it sounds so unreal.”
Decoding her makeup style, we expect to see matte lipsticks predominating in Rihanna’s beauty line that are sure to be available in vivid colors like crimson, burgundy, red-violet, mulberry, as well as tawny or coffee brown. The presence of such shades as ultramarine, emerald, dark olive green or even black is not to be excluded, as long as we deal with products designed by the extravagant celebrity. The only enigma continues to be the paradox of creating a lipstick that doesn’t fade away, but at the same time doesn’t dry on the lips. This is yet another reason why we are looking forward to getting our hands on Riri’s makeup products to test it all on our own.
It is beyond doubt that she will also include all that will help creating the smokiest eyes ever, ranging from black eyeshadows and eyeliners to black mascara and products for eyebrows. And undoubtedly her recent fragrance, RiRi will not be the last to make us smell good. Now that Fenty Beauty has been more or less outlined, its release is close at hand. So arm yourself with patience to furnish your cosmetic bags with fresh new beauty products by RiRi.
