Viola Davis Praises Rihanna for Fenty Beauty's 40 Inclusive Foundation Shades
The star opens up about her past struggle to find the perfect foundation shade
The star, who has sat in many makeup chairs during her career, has always been confronted with one challenge when it comes to makeup: finding the right foundation shade. But thanks to Rihanna, Davis says that issue has finally been solved for her — and women everywhere.
Before Rihanna’s Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longer Foundation shades launched at Sephora, Davis says she turned to mixing multiple shades in order to get the perfect color for her skin.
“I don’t feel like I have to get something five shades lighter, or mix two shades together in order to get my shade. And it feels like my natural skin,” she said. “It’s full coverage, and I’m honored by the fact that I’m recognized in this beauty line. I thank Rihanna for that.”
The star adds that the range, which is available on Sephora.com, has especially made life easier for women in smaller cities, who don’t always have the vast variety of beauty products readily available.
“As opposed to going to a drugstore and another drugstore, especially if you’re somewhere in like, I don’t know, Montana where you can’t find anything for you,” she said. “It makes you think then, Ok no one is thinking of me. It’s something that I struggled with a lot.”
