Although the event seemed personal and informal, it was planned as a surprise and to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Fenty Beauty.

Around 200 invited guests and media persons made their way into the store. And, Riri made sure she gave personalised makeup tips to customers and fans.

The 30-year-old Barbadian even mingled with the crowd and posed for selfies and pictures, making sure everybody left the store happy and excited. Almost everybody at the event got the opportunity to meet the gorgeous singer. 

Rihanna whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty was also accompanied by Fenty Beauty's Global makeup artist Priscilla Ono and makeup artist Hector Espinal. Both of whom also helped out customers select products from their latest collection.

The pop star launched her beauty brand last year in September and became the first cosmetic company to launch over 40 foundation shades, sparking the inclusivity debate. 

Since then, the brand has expanded and come up with lipsticks, eyeshadows, its bomb AF highlighters, blotting powders, body lava as well as brushes and sponges. 

The most recent additions to her line have been four new shades in the Lip Paints liquid lipstick collection. The shades that were revealed last week include Unveil, a light brown shade, Uncuffed, a rose-based mauve, Unbutton, a peach nude, and Uninvited, a deep black shade. 

You can now buy all the Fenty Beauty products on Sephora Singapore (online and in stores).
