Her other achievements
Without a doubt, she is a star of the century. However, one look at her website shows her success in just over 10 years. The woman behind Fenty Beauty has taken home a total of eight grammy awards. Not only that, she won 14 billboard music awards as well. Nevertheless, she remained a supportive icon for the community and her country Barbados. Rihanna also founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 to fund educational initiatives for the young generation. In addition to that, in September 2017 she launched Fenty Beauty. The reason for the popularity of the makeup brand is its broad inclusivity across skin tones and gender.
