Rihanna has found love in a hopeless place, survived a rocky relationship with Chris Brown and is now worth more than $90 million according to Forbes. The 27-year-old singer/songwriter has had an impressive career that’s included everything from music to fashion design. Now, Rihanna will be adding a new business venture, Fr8me, which will book makeup artists and stylists for commercials, editorial shoots, ad campaigns and more. Managing partner Benoit Demouy will help Rihanna run the new endeavor. It’s also going to give makeup artists who have gained a loyal following on social media a shot at the big time.
“Our goal is to have a stellar reputation,” Demouy said in an interview on Hollywoodreporter.com. “The industry’s changed so much — rates have gone down, and clients just grab images off social media, trying to bypass paying artists. But we’re concerned with social media, too — we’ll take a makeup artist with 500,000 followers over someone else.”by
