The 32-year-old singer launched Fenty Beauty - with an unprecedented 40 shades - in 2017 and followed up with Fenty Skin last month and it's no wonder Tracee, says Rihanna's determination to make the industry inclusive has been an inspiration to all.

''Rihanna's unapologetic determination to make beauty an inclusive industry - and her insistence that beauty be democratic - changed the game. She seems to imagine from a world where there are no limits, inviting us all to do the same,” Tracee says to Harper’s Bazaar US.

Rihanna always knew she wanted to expand into skincare but insisted that she waited three years after the launch of Fenty Beauty as she had to "get it right".

“Fenty skin is my vision of the new culture of skincare. I wanted to create amazing products that really work, that are easy to use, and that everyone can apply,” Rihanna says on the Fenty Beauty site.
