It was a ‘pop the champagne’ type of reaction for South African beauty lovers after it was announced that Fenty Beauty is launching in South Africa later this month. Now for Capetonians even bolder celebrations are in order because a local beauty guru has been chosen to partner with Rihanna’s icon brand!
Rezah Sampson a beauty guru who has built up his career through endless creativity and breathtaking looks (avant-garde adorned) over the past three years, was chosen to team up with Arc stores in light of the Fenty Beauty and Skin launch, set to have locals beaming soon.
As per IOL, Sampson expresses that “My face has been his canvas. It’s my creative outlet and how I express myself.”
But Sampson is far from just a creator of masterpieces and a pretty face.
“This brown queer beauty boy from the heart of Mitchell’s Plain” as he describes himself, is unapologetically stepping into the achievement, and paving the way to inspire others in their creations, period.
Fenty Beauty, arguably one of the most inclusive beauty lines in the game, is set to bless SA on 27 May. It’ll be released to Edgars and Arc Stores, as per Fenty Beauty’s announcement.
But it’s not just SA that’s got Fenty love on the brain, as Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe are all set to see a Fenty makeover.
