Rihanna: Fenty Beauty

In September 2017, Rihanna made her foray into the beauty sphere with the highly-anticipated launch of Fenty Beauty. According to Vogue, the singer raked in approximately $100 million in the first 40 days thanks to her inclusive ‘foundation for all” tagline. In a bid to make the beauty industry a more diverse place, the singer’s debut line featured a grand total of 40 different hues. In January 2019, she stepped up her game with the launch of 50 different shades of concealer. [Photo: Getty]

Victoria Beckham has added another impressive string to her bow, as the fashion designer has finally decided to make her foray into the beauty industry.

Set to launch in AW19, the self-confessed make-up junkie is expanding her empire with Victoria Beckham Beauty which will include the “must-have items in make-up, skincare, fragrance and wellness”.

But with the already A-list-studded industry already booming – according to market researcher NetBase, beauty brands are now more popular than fashion labels in social media conversation – will Beckham be able to find her footing?

From Kylie Jenner’s billion dollar company to the fact that Rihanna now makes more money from her beauty line than she does music, we take a look at the appeal behind the world’s most successful celebrity beauty brands.
