Actress Amandla Stenberg has signed on as the new face of Rihanna’s makeup brand Fenty Beauty.
The Hunger Games and The Hate U Give star will headline campaigns for the singer’s thriving cosmetics venture, making her the company’s first brand ambassador.
The 20 year old shared her excitement about the partnership in a statement announcing the news on Wednesday (15May19).
“I wanted to become a part of the Fenty Family because it’s one of the few beauty brands that make me feel like myself!” she gushed in an official press release. “Fenty Beauty’s whole ethos makes me feel empowered and excited to let different facets of myself shine.”
As for which of the many product offers Stenberg enjoys using the most, she names the Match Stix Matte and Shimmer Skinsticks as her favourites, noting they “are wonderful for on-the-go highlighting and bronzing”, adding, “I’m always about having a lil glow going. Plus, they stick together with magnets, which ensure they’ll never break apart in your bag.”
Fenty was launched in 2017 with the mission to provide a wide range of products for all skin tones. Rihanna also insisted the company be inclusive, ensuring “everyone feel beautiful and recognized, no matter their race, ethnicity, culture or personal style”.
Stenberg has a busy schedule ahead of her these days as she is also set to star in Oscar-winning La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s new Netflix series, The Eddy. She’ll portray the daughter of Andre Holland’s character, who runs a jazz club in Paris, France.
