Viola Davis Praises Rihanna's Fenty Beauty: I'm Honored By the Fact I'm Recognized in this Beauty Line'

News

Viola Davis is a big fan of Rihanna's Fenty Beauty makeup line.


Like many women of color, Viola says she's had challenges finding a foundation shade to match her skin tone.

via People:

“The thing about Fenty, which I own, is that I can get a base makeup that is exactly my skin tone,” Davis tells Refinery29 of Rihanna’s new range of foundation, which includes 40 shades.

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.”

Every makeup artist in the game needs to stock up on all 40 shades of Rihanna's Fenty Beauty foundation. Shoutout to Rihanna for creating something for everyone.

'Black Panther' Is Now Expected to Exceed $200 Million at the Weekend Box Office

Disney and Marvel Studios' Black Panther is making history at the box office.

After early projections put the film at a $170 million+ box office weekend, it's now on pace to bring in a record-shattering $205 million-$210 million.

via THR:

The tentpole earned $75.8 million on Friday, the eighth-biggest day of all time. Friday's gross includes $25.2 million in Thursday evening previews. Playing in 4,020 theaters, Black Panther drew a diverse audience on Friday; 37 percent of ticket buyers were African-American, while Caucasians made up the next largest group (36 percent), according to comScore. That sort of demo breakdown is unheard of for a marquee superhero tentpole. On average, African-Americans make up about 15 percent of the audience for such fare.

Black Panther will easily score the top February opening of all time and possibly the best showing of any superhero pic ahead of fellow Marvel title The Avengers ($207.4 million), not accounting for inflation. The movie's projected three-day haul of $185 million will also rank high up on the list of all-time openings. It will also mark the biggest opening ever for an African-American director.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the $200 million film is a defining moment in Hollywood history, being a big-budget studio tentpole featuring a virtually all-black cast. In the film, Chadwick Boseman stars as T'Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

The story follows T'Challa as he is sworn in as king of Wakanda, a cloaked, technologically advanced nation in Africa that's home to the exotic metal vibranium, which powers much of Black Panther's tech.

Black Panther has generated enormous buzz in recent weeks, selling more tickets in advance than almost any other movie before it.

Two years ago, Deadpool became the February champ when taking in $152.2 million over the four-day Presidents Day weekend.
