Rihanna’s Mama Said NO to Makeup in Her Teens. Bajan Superstar Does Not Promote Perfection.

Caribbean mothers aren’t to be messed with. Badgirl Ri Ri knows this oh too well, so when asked by international media recently about her teenage years on the beautiful island of Barbados, she immediately said her mother never allowed her to mess with Makeup as a youth. “Lipstick in Barbados? Not unless I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding,”she said. Rih said her mother was not flexible on the topic of her teenage daughter wearing makeup, even though she worked behind a cosmetics counter in Barbados.

Rihanna’s FENTY Beauty was launched in September and hasn’t had a bad day since. She admits that she has an issue when it comes to promoting perfection though, explaining that she believes “everyone is beautiful in their own way.”

Rihanna’s makeup line consists of some 40 shades of velvety matte foundations, which cater to women of all skin tones. She personally loves the Killawatt highlighter , she revealed, saying that the product’s versatility attracts her. “I put it on my eyes, cheeks, and body. It goes on smooth, and the texture is superfine, almost like liquid—plus it’s extremely high-shine. There’s a ton of different colors,” she said.

The “Love on the Brain” singer told InStyle magazine that makeup is therapeutic for her. “Once I start my glam—the makeup, the hair—I’m good. I’ll play music, find the good light in the bathroom, and just have a great time. That’s what gets me motivated,”she said. Rihanna also had some advice for young girls who may be struggling with their identities :

The biggest mistake you can make is to compare yourself with someone else. I hate the pressure that’s being put on us by social media. Young girls don’t know which way to go; they’re still figuring themselves out. And what we’re teaching them through social media is this idea that you have to be perfect. I just reject that at every cost. I only know how to be me, and people thrive when they’re who they’re meant to be. I can only try my best to encourage girls and women to respect their uniqueness and be 100 percent true to themselves. – Rihanna
