Rihanna has earned the third rank spot amongst musicians on the UK’s 2020 Rich List with an estimated net worth of 571 million (£468 million). As the only solo female artist to make it into the top 20, her success and wealth can be accredited to her career in music, her cosmetic line, Fenty Beauty, and fashion line, Savage X Fenty lingerie.
Fenty Beauty was launched in Sephora and online for the first time in September 2017 as a collaboration between Rihanna and LVMH. Whether are Riri fans or makeup connoisseurs, people flock to her makeup line because it proves broad inclusivity that other cosmetic lines lack for gender, skin tones, and skin types.
The 32-year-old Barbados queen’s desire for Fenty Beauty was a line that of makeup that let everyone self-express, have fun, take risks and be fearless beauties they are. So it’s no wonder she maintains 15% ownership as her cosmetic line and that Fenty Beauty has earned an estimated $570 billion in revenue alone last year, while the company is worth over $3 billion.
The formulas are designed to work on all skin types, even those considered hard-to-match and ladies can create a unique look just for themselves.
Not even a year later, in 2018, the multimillion mogul shared another joint venture between herself and Techstyle Fashion Group: Savage X Fenty. The savage lingerie line makes an annual $150 million in estimated revenue with the help of the musician using her social media to promote gorgeous pieces and looks.
Much like Fenty Beauty, Rihanna created this lingerie line hoping to, “make people look good and feel good” as well as wanting, “you to feel sexy and have fun doing it,” she explains on the Fenty website.
With an all-inclusive size in a variety of subtle and bold, sexy styles and colors, any woman can feel powerful and confident. As Rihanna said, “savage X means making your own rules and expressing your mood, character, and style for you- not for someone else.”
Savage Fenty is extremely popular among the plus-size commanders and many influencers have become ambassadors for the brand.
