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

Barbados must be incredibly proud. Their golden girl, ‘badgirlriri’ as she’s known on Instagram, has done it again. The singer who’s managed to stun the world in almost effortless fashion repeatedly over the years, launched her new lingerie line, Savage X by Fenty. It was extraordinary to say the least.

Rihanna is encouraging women to love the bodies they have.

Rihanna has been an advocate of embracing self. She disdain’s the promotion of perfection, having once said, “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.”

On Wednesday night, the artiste who is said to be working on a double album, lived up to her statements, ushering in a new fashion deliverable that stunned the world, making every woman feel beautiful in the fact that they could all wear Savage X by Fenty. The fashion event which was held at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York, saw a variety of models strut the runway. Rihanna acknowledged the fact that the bodies of no two woman are the same and realistically, no one mould can be used for every female. With this understanding, the woman behind Fenty Beauty challenged the fashion norm, placing the view of what’s sexy in the eye of the beholder.

Backstage at the event, Rihanna said the concept of the new line was about mixing the organic with the futuristic, “or what we hope to see in the future. Women being celebrated in all forms and all body types and all races and cultures.” She went on to say:

 “It’s a shame that women have to feel insecure or self-conscious about how their bodies look.”
