Viola Davis Praises Rihanna & Fenty Beauty

Published: Wednesday 15th Nov 2017 by Sam

Rihanna rocked the cosmetics industry with the Fall launch of her Fenty Beauty line.

Ever since its arrival, the range – which has been flying off shelves globally – has amassed support from both every day women and celebrities too.

One of the latter is actress Viola Davis, who gushed about RiRi’s latest venture in a new interview.

Her words await after the jump…

Speaking to PEOPLE, the ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ star said:

“The thing about Fenty, which I own, is that I can get a base makeup that is exactly my skin tone.

I don’t feel like I have to get something five shades lighter, or mix two shades together in order to get my shade. And it feels like my natural skin. It’s full coverage, and I’m honored by the fact that I’m recognized in this beauty line. I thank Rihanna for that.”

Say what we will about Rihanna musically, there’s no denying her strides as an entrepreneur.

At an impressive 45 shades, Fenty Beauty is clearly doing a solid job of appealing to all.

    Wow. This shows how widespread the lack of diversity issue is within the beauty industry. I mean, even major celebs like Viola are affected, which is crazy. I’m happy someone fixed this! Big ups to Rihanna for bringing this to light.

    Rihanna slayed severely by launching this line. I wonder if she realizes just how Epic the slayage is.

    Love Riri! She doesn’t have to ever do music again if she wants, like Jessica Simpson with her lines. However, I need my Rihanna fix musically so she bet not ever lol
