Makeup And Music: How Rihanna Built Her Multi-Million Pound Empire


When it comes to Rihanna, it’s easy to forget that she’s actually a singer! This is due to her branching out into many different areas, including the fashion industry, as well as bringing out an inclusive beauty line! How much money has all of this made her, I hear you thinking! Well no need to wonder anymore, we’ve got the facts and figures for you!

At the young age of 15, Rihanna met with music producer Evan Rogers to audition for him. Not long after that she was signed by Def Jam and released her first ever album ‘Music of the Sun’. It wasn’t until 2007 that the singer really began to get noticed, having released the album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. Since then the singing sensation has released many hit tracks including ‘Umbrella’, ‘Work’ and ‘Man Down’. With something for everyone, there is no wonder that Rihanna was named on the Forbes Richest list in 2020.  

It is estimated that in 2019 alone, Fenty Beauty had made over $600 million in sales alone! This may be due to the ever-increasing shade range available within the beauty line. Rihanna ensured that Fenty Beauty catered to all skin tones, meaning that no one would be left out. This came after many big named brands faced back lash at their small shade variety, making it harder for women of colour to find the perfect shade for them. There are currently 40 different shades of foundation to pick from. The entire Fenty Beauty operation is said to be worth more than $3 billion, however LVMH owns roughly 50% of the company alongside Rihanna. 

However, Rih Rih’s millions haven’t just come from her Fenty Beauty line. The singer also has a lingerie brand named Savage x Fenty. It is reported that the fashion line made roughly $50 million from investors alone in the past year. The line is currently bringing out new products such as high-end clothes and jewellery. 

Let’s not forget that along side all of this, Rihanna is still a singer! The star has 12 Billboard Music Awards, as well as 6 Guinness World Records. At only 32 years old, the singer was also the first female solo artist that sold out a whopping 10 concerts at the 02 Arena, in London. 

As her empire continues to grow, there is no telling what area Rihanna will branch out into next. Over the past few years, Rihanna has shown us that she is a true business woman and has more to her than just an amazing singing voice. We look foreward to seeing what will come next for the star. 

So to answer the question in everyone’s mind: What is Rihanna’s total worth? Well, in total Rihanna’s net worth is a staggering $600 million, this is made up of many different streams of income, including the few mentioned in this article. It is clear to see that the star has worked very hard for every penny!
