Rihanna, RiRi Hearts MAC
Rihanna’s real name is Robin Fenty, but do not ever call her that. At only 27, the singer from the Barbados region has achieved more in 10 years that many singers hope to accomplish in a lifetime. Rihanna got her start by meeting a record producer through a friend. She then sent in her demo to many interested parties, which included Jay-Z. Jay-Z ended up signing her to Def Jam records and, the rest is history.
Rihanna has made many strong network connections and, as a result, has a lot of powerful friends. The majority of these friends are at one of the biggest cosmetics producers in the country, MAC. MAC has used many singers, actresses and models in the past, but they have never given them the full reigns to the cosmetic wagon to design their own products. Rihanna became the first to be given the honor as she has launched her own line with her own look, in which lipstick is, of course, a big part.
