Actress and activist Amandla Stenberg has become the first-ever exclusive brand ambassador of Fenty Beauty.
“I wanted to become a part of the Fenty Family because it’s one of the few beauty brands that make me feel like myself! Fenty Beauty’s whole ethos makes me feel empowered and excited to let different facets of myself shine,” Stenberg said in the official press release.
Brand ambassador is another credential the 20-year-old can add to an already long list of achievements. Stenberg has starred in films such as The Hate U Give and The Hunger Games and is a vocal political activist who in 2018 appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine as a Next Generation Leader.
Fenty Beauty was launched by Rhianna in 2017 and was positioned as a beauty brand for everyone. They aimed to help “everyone feel beautiful and recognized, no matter their race, ethnicity, culture or personal style.” Known for innovative products and an inclusive shade range, the brand is a movement that extends beyond makeup, making Stenberg an obvious and fitting choice.
Fenty Beauty is available in Sephora in Australia. Their Match Stix Matte and Shimmer Skinsticks have been a hero product for many including Stenberg who say they “are wonderful for on-the-go highlighting and bronzing, and I’m always about having a lil glow going. Plus, they stick together with magnets, which ensure they’ll never break apart in your bag.”
