Do you struggle to find make-up that suits your skin tone and texture? Fear not. One of the world's most diverse make-up ranges has just launched in Boots Ireland and on Boots.ie; enter Fenty Beauty by Rihanna...
Finding the perfect shade of foundation isn't always easy. Finding the corresponding bronzer and highlight is harder still. Some are too yellow-toned, others too peachy; and if you're a woman of colour, some brands don't provide options at all.
Thankfully, Fenty Beauty – which has just launched in Boots Ireland today – is here to help.
Created by Barbados-native Rihanna, the Fenty Beauty range embraces diversity. "[It] was created for everyone," she said. "For women of all ages, all sizes, all skin tones, all religions, all cultures; I want women to feel included".
Now aged 31, Rihanna felt there was a void in the industry – one she knew she could fill by catering to women of all backgrounds. She is 100% involved in the creation process; focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones; creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.
Fenty Beauty products are designed to feel lightweight, yet still deliver buildable coverage. The foundation is designed to "make skin look like skin", no matter what level of coverage you choose.
Most importantly, Rihanna says it's designed to inspire, saying, "Make-up 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, take risks, and dare to do something new or different," she says.
Fenty launched in September 2017, but it's been difficult for shoppers to get their hands on – that is, until now.
