What we see and who we see in the media has a powerful effect on us, the younger generation specifically, having so many outlets to access the star-studded world of celebs. Because of that, it's easy to mistake what is truly valuable versus what is just monetary. In a 2018 interview with New York Times', T Magazine Rihanna shared, "My money is not for me; it's always the thought that I can help someone else."

The Barbados native was inspired by her mother's lipstick at a young age which transpired into her using makeup as her "weapon of choice for self- expression, a way to radiate her ever-changing mood," writes the Fenty Beauty website. She launched a line that gives every skin tone a match when searching for a foundation, created with a formulas that works for all skin types as well.

Fenty Skin was born with the purpose of blurring out pores to give your complexion a smooth and clear complexion. Their website writes, "pores are the gateway to skin that looks fresh, healthy, bright, and smooth. And while you can’t cancel out the number of pores you’ve got, you can tap into the skin science that makes them look practically nonexistent. Keeping pores unclogged also helps control surface oil and creates an ultra-smooth canvas for makeup. It ultimately comes down to the big three: clear, refine, and balance. In that order."
