With so many makeup brands out there, what’s the big deal about music artist Rihanna new makeup line Fenty Beauty. Fenty Beauty launched with 40 shades from very pale to very dark with their ultimate PHOTO FILT’R foundations. It’s one of their most talked about items. Usually makeup brands start off with lighter shades of foundation then every few years they add on darker shades. Well, Fenty Beauty has shouted from the mountain top that they are here for ALL WOMEN of all shades.
Finally a makeup company that embraced all skin tones. Rhianna’s makeup is for all ages, all races, and for all sexes. Many people don’t seem to understand why it’s a big deal that every woman can now have a foundation that matches their skin tone perfectly. As I always say wearing the perfect foundation is like wearing the perfect bra.
Like many makeup lovers, we at Makeup and Martini’scould not wait to get our hands on a few items from Fenty Beauty. Guess what! We did. So, we did a video of us playing with the makeup. During the video I tested the products on both Johnny and myself.

Fenty Beauty is a new brand own by music artist Rihanna that’s represents beauty for all, that’s who she is and that’s what she stands for. Something that many makeup brands have never really embraced. So this is why her products are flying off the Sephora shelves everywhere especially the foundations. It’s one of the most expensive items that majority of makeup companies sell besides makeup brushes.
One of the most talked about item from Fenty Beauty is their ultimate PHOTO FILT’R foundation in 40 boundary breaking shades. Usually makeup brands start off with lighter shades of foundation then every few years they add on darker shades. Well, Fenty Beauty has shouted from the mountain top that they are here for ALL WOMEN of all shades. Finally, so many boogie down brown women will now walk around feeling really good because they are wearing the correct foundation shade. To me wearing the correct foundation is like wearing the correct bra, this is why I think Fenty Beauty is the best thing that has happened for women. I feel that Rhi Rhi will not overlook so many women hue when producing products. I can’t wait to see all the fun holiday collections, seasonal and limited edition makeup items Rhi Rhi will add to her makeup line.
Some of the items you can purchase now at Sephora are: primer, foundations, matte skinsticks, shimmer skinsticks, highlighters, contour skinsticks, luminizers, brushes, blotting powder and blotting paper. I’m so grateful for so many reasons but one being that so many women now have a makeup brand to count on…Chi Ching!!!
Yesterday my partner and crime Johnny and I we filmed Makeup & Martini’s for our YouTube page our makeup review on Fenty Beauty products. I’m so elated that I can’t wait for you all to review. Here are a few of the items I got to play with while filming Makeup & Martin’s.
Have you tried Fenty Beauty yet? If so, share with me what you purchased and what you think about it?
I am so excited about working this assignment at Bravo Media Studio in New York. After a busy week working the Bruno Mars & The Hooligans assignment I was happy to be working on 2 females that I have so much respect for. Without giving away any info on the assignment my talents were TV Personality JWow, actress Tichnia Arnold and 2 female talents that will have a major role on this episodes.
I had such a great time with JWow in the morning on set, she is such a sweet girl. Love her energy and I luv that she likes to play with makeup. So JWow gave me free range to do what ever with her makeup, my kind of girl. We both luved how Stila cosmetics highlighter showed up on her. The foundation I used was Stila cosmetics Stay All Day Foundation, it’s one of my favorite to use on set because I like the way it shows up on camera and on photos. Here are some of the items I used on JWow.
Tichnia flew in this morning and came straight to the set to work. Now that is what I call A-LIST. On Tichnia I gave her a sultry dark eyes with a nude lip from Dior Beauty. I don’t even know how I got through with doing her makeup. She had me laughing the entire time. I wish more celebrities have her energy and personality on set. We connected over me being a lupus warrior and she luv how I did her makeup. Here are some of the items I used on her.
On the ladies I could not wait to pull out the few Fenty Beauty items I had. The products looked beautiful on the ladies. Fenty Beauty and Stila cosmetics made for a great team for my boogie down brown ladies.
