Black brilliance. Made for all.

Black-Owned Brands Fenty Beauty
Fenty Beauty

Fenty Beauty was created for everyone everywhere - focusing on a wide range of skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. The products are designed to feel lightweight, even as they deliver buildable coverage that effortlessly layers, for skin that looks like skin.

The brains behind it

Rihanna created Fenty Beauty after years of experimenting with the best-of-the-best in beauty - and still seeing a void in the industry for products that performed across all skin types and tones. 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”.
