A lot of eyes have been on Rihanna recently - more than usual. This is because the highly renowned singer and actress has added another achievement to her already long list. Rihanna released a beauty line named Fenty on Sept. 8, 2017. She planned the line for two years before its release.
Women with darker skin tones often find it hard to find a foundation shade that perfectly matches their skin, especially with high-end makeup brands. Rihanna tried to target this issue with her Fenty Beauty makeup line. Her line has 40 different foundation shades including light, medium and darker skin tones, compared to the majority of makeup brands that range from ten to 20 shades.
Health and society freshman Dumebi Nzegwu said it's often hard to find a foundation shade that matches her skin tone. She was excited when Rihanna released her Fenty beauty line not only because it was made by Rihanna, but because of its inclusiveness.
"As a black woman I know that she will get my shade right," Nzegwu said, referring to Rihanna. "It should be a game changer for the industry."
Nzegwu is only one example of how the release of the new products have left beauty consumers #shook. Beauty vloggers and makeup lovers were quick to share their opinions on Fenty.
