It’s Rihanna’s commitment to diversity and inclusion that helped secure the award. “…makeup companies often cater to women with light to medium skin tones, both in products and advertising, and sideline women of color,” TIME says.
“Not so with Rihanna’s line, Fenty Beauty, which launched in September with 40 shades of foundation and a diverse array of makeup models,” they explain. The products join other honorees such as the Nintendo Switch, Tesla Model 3, and fidget spinners.
