2018 has been a good year for Rihanna. Even though she hasn’t dropped any new music recently, her beauty empire Fenty continues to thrive in the global market and now it’s giving back.
Just earlier this week, The Barbados Government Information Service announced Rihanna (real name Robyn Fenty) as the Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary, a political office in her home country.
The 30-year-old singer has also announced that her charity, Clara Lionel Foundation (named after her parents) is set to donate the proceeds from her latest make-up product to provide scholarships to girls in Malawi.
According to Justine Lucas, the executive director of Rihanna’s charity: “We hope that this collaboration allows the Fenty Beauty community to feel not only like they’re part of the CLF journey but also that they can take action on issues they are passionate about,” she told Marie Claire magazine. “At the heart of our mission is the idea that everyone can play a part in creating a more just and equitable world by contributing in their own way.”
This is Rihanna celebrating the first anniversary of her cosmetics line Fenty Beauty, which made $100 million in its first 40 days.
