Fenty Beauty, Ri­hanna’s de­but make-up col­lec­tion, is fierce, in­clu­sive and set to trans­form your beauty bag. Here, the singer talks about what in­spired her.

What is your ear­li­est mem­ory of make-up?

“The first time I re­mem­ber hav­ing my make-upu done was for a beauty pageant I did in school. I was 15, about to be 16, just be­fore I got signed. I had my full face done – my mum ac­tu­ally did my make-up. And ever since then, ever since I saw foun­da­tion on my skin, I could never look at my skin with­out foun­da­tion again. Make-up: it spoilt me.”

What was im­por­tant to you in cre­at­ing Fenty Beauty?

“One of the things that I felt was re­ally im­por­tant to start with was foun­da­tion. Foun­da­tion is one of those ar­eas in the beauty in­dus­try that has a big void for women at ex­treme ends of the shade spec­trum. There is this mid­dle ground that’s cov­ered re­ally well. But then if you’re very pale or very dark, there aren’t a lot of op­tions. I wanted to make sure that women of all skin tones could be in­cluded in what I cre­ated.”

When did you fall in love with make-up?

“My ob­ses­sion with make-up started with watch­ing my mum put her make-up on. I al­ways loved to watch her, and all the funny faces she was mak­ing in the mir­ror. I never un­der­stood it un­til I got older and fell in love with make-up my­self and re­ally started be­com­ing ob­sessed.”
