Rihanna Posted A Selfie With No Makeup On, And The Internet Thinks It Means She’s Dropping A Skincare Line—And It Might Be True

Rihanna is entering 2020 makeup-free. The Fenty Beauty founder, posted her “first selfie of the year” on Monday night on Instagram, showing off her fresh face and new cornrow braids. Some speculated that the barefaced look is a sign that Rihanna might be entering the skincare game; and there might be some truth behind the rumor. 

Rihanna’s fans are hungry for a new album. But instead of new music, the star blessed social media with a different kind of teaser today

Or at least that’s what fans think about her latest post. The Fenty Beauty founder took to Instagram earlier today to post a makeup-free selfie with what appears to be a blemish on her chin. “First selfie of the year doe. #2020,” she wrote. A casual Instagram is always a mysterious move her most passionate fans live to analyze. Does Rihanna’s choice of a casual hoodie mean she’s currently and cozily curating the next Fenty collection drop? Does the subtle sliver of metallic gloss lining her lips foreshadow a new psychedelic Fenty Beauty lip liner? 

Fans began speculating on Twitter

Users began theorizing that RiRi’s choice to showcase herself sans makeup—and even proudly promoting an imperfect blemish, meant that she’s teasing trial products for a Fenty-branded skin line. This is Rihanna, people, the hustle never stops.

In typical Rihanna form, when one commenter pointed out the pimple on her cheek, the star replied: “Let her have her shine, PLEASE.”

Some speculated that the barefaced look is a sign that Rihanna might be entering the skincare game. 

Some followers were more fascinated with her complexion and began to theorize that a Fenty Beauty skin-care line could soon be on the horizon. 

“Rihanna’s putting this pic with a pimple and some months later she will release Fenty Skin and prove how it cleared this pimple. A smart businesswoman, I stan,” one user wrote.

And the rumors might not be as farfetched as you think…

Rihanna wanted us to glow so she gave us Fenty Beauty. She wanted us to look our best while sleeping or lounging around, so she gave us Savage X. Now, Rihanna is making sure we’re all taking care of bodies and skin underneath it all with a “Fenty Skin” line.

Riri trademarked ‘Fenty Skin’ last year.

According to a trademark application submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office’s on March 29, 2019, Rihanna registered “Fenty Skin,” which will cover “medicated and non-medicated skincare, soap, body care, and personal care products (excluding color cosmetics, perfume, and other fragrance-only products), and related accessories such as kits, tools, and applicators.

The new launch could be top of mind for Rihanna; the United States Patent and Trademark Office sent her a notice to re-up the application on December 3.

Who wouldn’t love a Fenty Skin moisturizer to use before applying the Pro Filt’r Foundation and concealer? Page Six reported that the Fenty Skin trademark application has already been approved and will be sent to an attorney for further review, which can take up to three months to complete. But trust, Rihanna has a very patient fanbase.

Rumors about Rihanna’s skincare line surfaced as early as 2017.

A few years back, a fan found a trademark registration for a brand named “House of Fenty.” According to that application, House of Fenty would produce “cosmetics, non medicated skincare preparations, namely creams, lotions, gels, toners, and cleansers.”

We’re still waiting for that album though…

Still, rabid fans seemed more concerned about the album the singer previously confirmed for 2019. One person even lamented, “The fact that the pimple heard the album and we didn’t.”

So, Rihanna’s answer to the post, is confirmation that she knows that popping pimples (though hard to avoid) is a no-no. It’s also a reminder that zits happen to just about everyone. As for a line of Fenty Beauty skin care? Only time will tell.

This Brazilian Mother And Daughter Share A Rare Beauty Mark In The Form Of White Locks

It’s not every day that we get to see beauty this rare or so brightly celebrated.

Two-year-old Mayah and her daughter Talyta Youssef Aziz Vieira both share a rare genetic condition that means they have a white forelock that makes them look like X-men’s Rogue. Now, their unique traits are going viral and being celebrated on social media.

The mother and daughter pair both have white streaks in their hair due to a genetic condition called Piebaldism.

Talyta, who is from Jericoacoara, Brazil gave birth to daughter Mayah in 2018. According to Daily Mail, the mother was not at all surprised to find out that the two shared the rare trait that gives them two different hair colors. According to Talyta, the genetic condition was passed on to her grandfather, mother, aunt, and cousins, all of whom were born with piebaldism. The genetic condition is characterized by the absence of cells called melanocytes in particular regions of the skin and hair.

According to Talyta’s Instagram page, the young mother said that in her younger years she attempted to hide the white streaks in her hair.

Soon enough, and fortunately, Talyta came to appreciate the trait. Even better? The mother says her daughter has fully embraced her hair mark and enjoys dressing up as Disney character Cruella de Vil while the two watch 101 Dalmatians together.

According to Daily Mail, Talyta says “Piebaldism runs in our family so we knew there was a high probability that Mayah would also have it… From the moment she was born, Mayah had so many white hairs on the front of her head. My doula posted a picture on social media and days later, we were invited by a photographer to do a photo shoot.”

It didn’t take long for the pictures to go viral online.

“I tried to hide my white hair until my twenties. I’d hide it behind other strands – worried that people would bully me,” Taylta explained “I soon realized though that I was unique and special. I want to set that example for Mayah. People always stop us to say how special she is.”

Fortunately, Mayah will have a chance to see someone who looks like her on the big screen soon.

While Mayah’s features have been compared to Rogue from X-Men and Anna from Frozen, the little girl will get a chance to see Cruella in Disney’s soon to be released feature about the villain.

‘That’s when I thought it would be a lovely idea for us to dress up together as those characters. I want Mayah to have fun memories about the way she looks,” Taylta explained about her images of her daughter on Instagram “I want her to embrace being a superhero. Other people who are different have reached out to us thanking us for helping them accept themselves. It’s so sad that people have hid themselves away. We don’t need to be the same to be beautiful. Everyone has a heart inside to accept and love. We are living in a time of knowledge and transformation. Let’s embrace what makes us different.”

Cardi B’s First Leading Movie Role Will Thrill ‘Sister Act’ And ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Fans

For one of her upcoming projects, fans of Cardi B can expect a throwback to her older days. That’s right, Cardi B is stepping into a familiar role before the screen. The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star has proven herself capable of making music bangers and in Hustlers she showed that she can hold her own when it comes to the big screen.

Now, the rapper is playing the lead in Paramount’s upcoming film Assisted Living.

Cardi was recently cast in the “raucous comedy” called Assisted Living.

According to Variety, the upcoming film “is being described as a ‘raucous comedy’ with ‘tremendous heart.’ Fans of Cardi can expect a film that looks quite a bit like Tootsie, Sister Act, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

The upcoming film follows Cardi B as Amber a small-time crook who gets herself into trouble when a heist goes wrong. “On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide, reports Variety. “Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Cardi B has been in a major film.

In 2019 she appeared the blockbuster film Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, and Keke Palmer.

And of course, for some time fans were hopeful that Cardi would take on the titular role of a reboot of the ’90s sitcom “The Nanny.”

According to CNN, the reality star-turned-rapper has been in talks to play Fran Drescher’s daughter in a potential reboot of the ‘90s sitcom.

Speaking about a potential reboot in 2018, Fran Drescher told Extra in an interview “[I’m] talking to her representation. It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun.” Here’s hoping we get more Cardi B on screen!
