Why Rihanna's FENTY BEAUTY Has Revolutionized Makeup

Why Rihanna's FENTY BEAUTY Has Revolutionized Makeup



It has been at least a year and a half since Rihanna released her makeup line "FENTY BEAUTY" and let's just say that it has been a game changer. I know I'm doing the absolute most by saying this, but coming from someone like me who has tried Fenty Beauty, it has truly changed my life! FENTY BEAUTY has made a great impact in the makeup world by talking about how to find the right shade for people and offering people a wide variety of shades. One of the products that is talked about the most is the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, which has resonated with women of color and women with a paler complexion because she started off with releasing 40 shades and last January she just released 10 more shades of foundation.

"FENTY BEAUTY was created for everyone: for women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races. I wanted everyone to feel included. That's the real reason why I made this line" (Rihanna). Rihanna's Fenty Beauty focuses on a wide range of skin tones that have been difficult to match in recent years and her foundation is made to feel lightweight and buildable. I have been using FENTY BEAUTY since 2018 and it has truly been amazing. I just love how it gives me a natural glow and it is not drying out my skin. Another thing I love about Fenty Beauty is that Rihanna is involved in every step of the process. She is not someone that just creates a company that just puts her name on it, she was involved in the beginning stages of her makeup line such as testing the product out on her. Some of the products that I really enjoy is the Fenty Concealer because it hides my baggy eyes and when it comes to what shade you are when it comes the concealer, I'm 290 in her foundation and that means I am 290 in her concealer. This makes life so much easier because they made a corresponding concealer to your foundation. I also love the Fenty Gloss Bomb, because it looks good on everyone and it has shea butter in the product which prevents your lips from getting dried out. The Fenty Gloss Bomb is long lasting so you don't have to keep reapplying it. Lastly one of the products that I have heard is amazing is her highlighters, because you can use it for eye shadow and as a highlighter. If you go on the Fenty Beauty youtube page, they go through different ways you can use their products. The dual highlighter such as Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule and Trophy wife has received a lot of positive comments about its pigmentation, I have never used it before but I bought one of my friends the Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule dual highlighter and she loves it.

Rihanna is continuing to revolutionize the makeup world and I believe that I can say that Fenty Beauty has set the tone for how to meet a customer's needs when it comes to matching a foundation and offering more shades to women.

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

'Sissy, Why is That Boy Wearing Makeup?'

June is time to celebrate equality.


This past weekend, I went to the mall with my family. It was just a normal family excursion, and I wanted to walk into Sephora to show my mom a perfume I liked. We go inside, and my mother and I drift away from my dad and 6 year old sister, Sierra. I showed her the perfume I thought smelled amazing (Roses de Chloé) and we look for my sister and father to exit the store. As soon as we leave, my little sister grabs my hand and asks, "Sissy, why is that boy wearing makeup?"

This was the first time my little sister has ever asked about anything like this, and I wanted to make sure I gave her an answer. I turned to her and said, "Sierra, sometimes there are boys who wear makeup, and girls who may dress like boys. People are allowed to wear what they want, it doesn't matter." Sierra looks up at me, says, "Oh okay," and that was the end of it.

Sharing this experience to say, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!

So thankful to live in a country where all sexual orientations get a day to celebrate their love. That's what this world needs more of-- love. It shouldn't matter who it is, where they are from, the color on their skin, or their gender identity.

When Sierra was born, I always wondered when this conversation would come up. I wondered what I would say, how she would react to it, and how she would be exposed to it. Like I consistently preach, everything happens for a reason, and I'm glad Sierra was able to get exposure and receive an immediate answer. Love is love, and I will forever stand by that.
