Rihanna has now taken legal action against her father, Ronald Fenty, for using her trademark Fenty brand in a "fraudulent effort to solicit millions of dollars" without her permission.

Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, has filed a lawsuit against her dad after he set up the company Fenty Entertainment and apparently acted as her agent.

She claims Ronald and a man named Moses Perkins have been "soliciting business by falsely acting as her agent".

According to legal documents, the duo are allegedly seeking "to profit from her fame" and "although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf."

The ANTI singer and beauty mogul also claims they have falsely booked her for a $15 million Latin American tour, two concerts at Staples Centre in LA and a Las Vegas show, worth $400,000.

The documents also allege that her father tried unsuccessfully to file trademark for Fenty multiple times to launch a "resort hotel services" with the hope of "exploiting Rihanna’s name and brand". Yikes.

The 30-year-old star insists that she tried to settle the issues outside of court but that he ignored her cease and desist mail. She's now asking a judge to place an injunction on Ronald.

Fenty has been trademarked by Bad Gal Riri for all business ventures, such as her cosmetics and lingerie collections.

The Umbrella songstress has a turbulent relationship with her biological father; she has maintained that he physically abused her mother and has been addicted to crack cocaine in the past.

He was kicked off her 2008 tour for drunken behaviour, and she paid for her father to enter a rehabilitation clinic back in 2013.

Despite the drama, she is still in contact with her dad and they were seen together in Barbados last November celebrating her grandfather's 90th birthday.

Sounds pretty tumultuous to us, it makes our family spats at the dinner table look hella minor.

If you haven't seen Birdbox yet on Netflix, you may want to hop on that bandwagon, if only for the sake of these STUNNING make-up inspired lewks.

Sandra Bullock's massively successful horror thriller has the internet and streaming world absolutely hooked, not to mention competing in dangerous blindfold challenges.

We were graciously bequeathed with glorious memes at first, but now it's time for beauty to take over.

That's right, Birdbox beauty has begun and we are LIVING for it.

We NEED to try out this trend on our next night out on the town.

A real-life blindfold could come in useful in a nightclub…

Boy meets girl. Girl looks flawless and wigs are snatched. Boy needs blindfold to recuperate from seeing such staggering beauty up close. It's a realistic scenario, don't you think?

Why not give the trend a go and choose your favourite Bird Box concept for your next make-up regime, we guarantee you'll look incredible even while rowing a boat.

Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.

Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.

Dress to Impress

You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.

For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.

A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.

If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.

Mirrored Magnificence

It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!

We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!

The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.

Prom night is not the time to work this out.

If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.

Testing 1, 2, 3

One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.

Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.

The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.

Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.

We all know (and not-so-secretly) love Kris Jenner.

The devil works hard, but this woman works harder and makes ALL OF HER KIDS multi-millionaires, as well as getting nine grandkids in 10 years.

As it turns out, it has been revealed that Kris Jenner gets a whopping 10% of EVERYTHING her kids make, which amounts to a ridiculous amount altogether.

The woman is a cultural icon, who has not only birthed five children, but gave them the Midas touch and also gave birth to MEMES galore.

Kim Kardashian alone is worth $350 million and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million, which means that Kris owns at least $125 million. We’re shook.

Remember that quote from Kim’s former sex tape scandal? “As a mother I wanted to kill her. But as a manager….*wink*” I MEAN, COME ON.

It takes skill to turn every controversy and scandal into exploitation, and then rake in the cash as a result. Give her credit where it’s due.

According to ForbesMother Jenner got “paid an estimated $17 million by her daughter in the past year” due to the giant which is Kylie Cosmetics.

Kylie named one of her eyeshadow shades 10% as a nod to the slice which Kris gains from her daughter’s business, which is pure gas.

We’ve been Keeping Up With The Kardashians since 2007, and E! network agreed to an $80 million deal in 2015 and another deal in 2017 for America’s first reality TV family.

The hilarious momager went on The Ellen Show, and claims that;

“Everybody gets paid pretty much equally, ’cause we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade…Everybody’s happy.”

Kris takes home a cool $15 million from the show, so we think she’s doing pretty damn well.

Slay, bish, you’re a gifted woman.

Kim Kardashian alone is worth $350 million and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million, which means that Kris owns at least $125 million. We’re shook. If you have ever wondered about the net worth of celebrities there is tonnes of information here that will surprise you. Who’d have thought that Gigi Hadid was worth that much?

Influencers are on the rise at the moment, with a booming make-up and cosmetics industry and the ever-expanding social media platforms, branding is more lucrative than ever.

Make-up guru and general sass queen Jeffree Star has always vowed to be as honest with his fans as possible, even when it comes to his wealth.

It's no secret that he is ABSURDLY wealthy; as well as his YouTube earnings and side projects, he predominantly generates income from his giant line of cosmetics.

He has now promised to expose any brand who try to meddle with him and his CASH DOLLA in any way that he can, and boy does he have power.

David Dobrik was told by the make-up star that he earns $150 million PER YEAR. *Pause to allow shook people to gather themselves before continuing*

In his recent tweets, Star mentions how he was supposed to create a project which exposed make-up brand deals, but the brand he was working with pulled out in order to keep other clients happy.

He has now revealed how much they were offering to pay him for a SINGLE product; a jaw-dropping $165,000. Dear God.

He challenged another brand to come forward in the New Year to help him in his mission to discuss behind the scenes make-up brand deals, which would be fascinating to see.

It's sure to be a crazy end result, whatever Star comes up with.

Maybe we should try our hand at this make-up artist business?

This may be the beauty product we've all been waiting for…What are our two favourite things? Pizza + glamorous eyeshadow = pure, unadulterated joy.

Yep, that's the truth. Glamlite Cosmetics have changed the make-up game by creating a pizza-themed vegan eyeshadow palette, and it's absolutely unreal.

The cruelty-free, vegan beauty giant have described the Pizza Palette as; The world’s most ‘delicious’ palette, fresh out of the oven and ready for delivery!”

She then decided to carry out the greatest clap-back second only to anything Chrissy Teigen has ever done, by creating a PIZZA-themed palette which sold out in under 48 hours.

What an absolute QUEEN. We stan.

This woman is a genius. The product has also been JEFFREE STAR APPROVED, which is no easy feat.

Millennials don't exactly get an easy time; most people hate us or just dismiss us as snowflakes who only have knowledge about wi-fi and avocado toast.

While we generally have more of a penchant for the internet seeing as we GREW UP WITH IT… this doesn't mean we're as lazy and vain as everyone says we are.

For example, we only have three selfie sticks and check our reflections between the hours of 9am and 11pm everyday, so what's the big deal about?

which is worse the daily show GIF by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

We've all heard the lectures from our elderly relatives about how we drain the economy and refuse to get jobs, but people love to focus on the negatives rather than the positives.

Getting a millennial a Christmas gift can be a challenge, seeing as the chances of them being vegan, supporting paraben-free and cruelty-free produce and generally hipster and full of notions are sky high.

They'll also most likely blog the entire gift opening session, and post every aspect of it to social media, so it's gotta be impressive.

We've made a gift guide especially to help you out this festive season, y'all are welcome.

Christmas is just around the corner and I am VERY excited about it.

As the eldest sister I feel like there's more pressure on me to buy amazing gifts for my sisters. Finding the perfect gift can be a complete and utter nightmare, but I realised there are so many essential things to buy your sisters; basically everything they steal on you.

My sisters are forever 'borrowing' everything and anything on me, from jeans to deodorant and from my curler to perfume. And tbh I'm fed up with it.

So how do we solve this problem?

Buy them the thing they're ALWAYS robbing on you. This gift guide is here to help my fellow struggling sisters who have had enough of their siblings and the constant case of missing belongings.

Handing over the basket at the till, she looks excited and stuns in a full pink suit.

However, she quickly realises she has forgotten one important thing, asking: "Does anyone have any cash?"

The moment was caught on video and uploaded to Twitter with the caption: "Kylie went to buy her own product but forgot her money."

That's right, Kylie never thought about bringing money to the store to purchase her own goods.

We imagine that she got them for free anyway – but AWKS.

You’ve most likely seen at least one of Vogue’s infamous make-up tutorials, celebrated for their chill, relatable vibe… NOT.

We obsess over how gorgeous models get their looks, attempt to emulate their radiant beauty and try (and fail) to copy their stunning #lewks.

The rich and famous have world-renowned make-up artists following at their heels, making sure they look their best at all times.

Image: Vogue

We, on the other hand, roll out of bed and can only pray that we manage to look semi-decent instead of the apocalyptic zombie which was passed out in bed only moments earlier…

If I can remember to put toothpaste on my toothbrush instead of moisturiser, I think I’m winning.

These celebrity gals, however, are often expected to look #RedCarpetReady 24 hours a day, which sounds exhausting, to be honest.

We decided it was time to watch these notorious Vogue Vids to study the movements and cosmetic habits of faces such as Bad Gal Riri (she doesn’t need make-up, make-up needs her), Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid to see just how relatable these ladies are. 

We were inspired by the hilarious Maddison Bush, who uploaded parody version of a make-up tutorial while attempting to imitate Vogue's famous faces.

Hint: not relatable in the slightest. Not even close to it.

1. First up, Bella Hadid.

As we all know, Bella is one half of the supermodel sister duo of herself and Gigi Hadid, AKA: two of the most ridiculously stunning human beings on the planet. We actually doubt if they’re human… they look like they were made in a laboratory for beautiful people. No fair.

From the very start of these videos, it’s already hard to find anything in common with these women. They are all doing their beauty regime in unnaturally aesthetic bathrooms in luxurious hotels or mansions, whereas we’re struggling to find a mirror that isn’t covered in foundation smudge marks, or are possibly in the queue for the house bathroom for the last 35 minutes.

Ah, the life of regular people. So quaint.

From the second models such as Bella face the camera, it’s difficult to choke down the fact that they aren’t wearing any make-up because they already look damn FLAWLESS.

Like, wig = snatched from the beginning. *sigh*

The videos are also alarmingly short, considering most of us take at least 15 minutes to put our faces on. The fact that famous faces only take 5 minutes to look that good is frankly both disturbing and insulting to my pale palour.

(I’ve been asked if I am anaemic countless times, I’ve just started saying yes now, it’s easier).

Bella begins by saying “models can do their own make-up too!” Good to know, Bella. Good to know. You’re very normal.

She continues by saying, “I look really tired because I’ve been travelling for two months straight.” You poor gal Bella, travelling the world in private jets and glamorous clothing must be devastating to your complexion.

So far, oh so relatable.

Image: YouTube

Bella uses concealer, a contour stick, highlighter, brow pencil, lash primer and mascara to complete her look in five minutes.

By the end of the video, she’s essentially ready for the Victoria’s Secret carpet, minus the wings. It’s offensive. *cries in poor*

Relatability level: 2/5.

2. Kendall Jenner. Also known as ‘KANDALL JANNARRR’.

She’s already using products we can’t even dream of affording without selling our organs illegally online, so the relatability factor is null from the beginning.

She claims that she “learns a lot from being on set.” Us too, Kendall. We frequent photoshoots on the reg constantly, it’s the cross we bear.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

She lets us know that she eats grilled cheese sandwiches, which is comforting for roughly 4 seconds.

The Kardashian uses Estée Lauder foundation in nude, concealer, and mascara and finishes by blowing a kiss to the camera.

The fact that she hasn’t poked her eyes with a mascara brush or choked on powder yet separates this gal from reality.

My lungs still haven’t recovered from the powder incident of ’09, where my mother’s inhaler had to be used.

Image: YouTube

Relatability level: 1/5. Sorry Kendall, but your bathroom alone is next level boujee.

3. Lili Reinhart.

Our third gal is Riverdale’s gorgeous Betty Cooper herself, Lili Reinhart. We have high hopes for this one, seeing as her social media presence is all about positivity and female empowerment, as well as Cole Sprouse, AKA Coal Sprouts, Jughead Jones.

Lili also begins her video by eating food on camera, it seems to be a common ‘relatability’ tactic. This time, it’s Chinese food. She has us hooked.

She also admits from the beginning that she already has foundation on, thank God. If that was her natural complexion I think I’d have had to tell her to stay in her lane.

Lili doesn’t mention the products which she uses, which we translate to mean that we probably cannot afford them…

She uses pink eyeshadow, lip gloss, a basic nude foundation and of course, concealer and highlighter. Voila, she’s ready for her close-up.

Relatability level: 3/5. She’s the winner so far, mainly due to her Chinese wontons. They just look so tasty.

4. Emily Ratajkowski.

Ah, the notorious sexy selfie queen. We have serious doubts about the relatability level of this gal, she’s got cheekbones for days and an enviable glowing tan.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) on

Plus she could look sexy even if she went to Coppers until 6am the night before and had an absolute ‘mare when those jägerbombs came back to haunt her. The hardest look to pull off, arguably.

She comments that “I do my own make-up for red carpets a lot”. Same, tbh…

All this girl needs is Pat McGrath lipgloss, her blush which she confesses to be addicted to, and a bit of concealer. Wait… that’s it? That’s all it takes? Seriously?

We quit. We are the weakest link, goodbye.

<

Relatability level: 0/5. Sorry Emily, but you took a duck-face selfie when you were done, and DIDN’T delete it or take a second take. That’s downright blasphemy in our books, we need at least 13 photos before we can find one we don’t hate.

5. Rihanna

Last, but not least, BAD GAL RIRI. An icon. A sass queen. Fenty Beauty extraordinaire, we have high hopes for this one.

From the beginning of the ten minute long gift, RiRi shows off her bubbly personality without plugging her own products at all, which is a miracle in itself.

If you haven’t tried using Fenty Beauty products, girl you are MISSING OUT. They’re flawless.

Some of Rihanna’s best quotes from this video include:

“Everyone knows concealer is made for hiding bags and dark circles, and hangovers and bad decisions.” YAS queen, she’s in the know. Riri gets the struggle.

“You’ve got to have powder for when you get greasy on the fly, honey.” Preach it.

“Pink eyeshadow says summer, sunset, love, drama, BITCHES.” We would pray to the church of Rihanna, honestly.

“The key to highlighter is not to be afraid, make-up is fun. It’s there to play with.” She hits the nail on the head, so many of us can find make-up intensely frustrating when we are expected to follow certain trends and look a certain way.

At the end of the day, beauty products should be used for our own enjoyment and empowerment, and if make-up doesn’t empower you, your natural beauty is all you need.

Riri claims that she learned how to contour when she gained weight and wanted to hide her ‘double chin’ and forehead, which was hugely surprising to us. Superstar celebrities have insecurities too, gals.

“The best teacher is yourself.” Say it louder for the people in the back, Rihanna. Everyone has their own unique look, individual face and preferred beauty regimens. You don’t have to look to famous people to understand your own complexion, all you need is you.

Riri relatability level: 4/5. Her personality is down-to-earth, her tips are one of a kind and her products are gold star standard.

We have to remind ourselves that these celebrities have picked up countless tips from the top make-up artists in the business, whereas we got free eyeshadows from magazines as 11-year-olds back when YouTube make-up tutorials didn’t exist (yes, there was a time, believe it or not) and gave ourselves pinkeye.

I lost count of how many allergic reactions I had to dodgy make-up after my 3827th eye infection from cheap “make-up”.

I wouldn’t even call it make-up honestly, I suspect that magazine eyeshadows were essentially homemade concoctions of flour and food dye.

Fast forward a few years, and YouTube beauty accounts have blown up across the internet, courtesy of teenagers who are DYING to know how to contour.

The word contour genuinely did not exist until recently in Ireland, we were simple folk back then.

There was eyeshadow (roughly 4 colours), orange foundation, mascara and lip gloss which was just Vaseline that had notions about itself.

In 2018, the cosmetic industry is bigger than ever, and is only beginning to include minorities in its world, thanks to brands such as Fenty Beauty creating more foundation shades.

It can be difficult to relate to any models in the beauty industry, no matter who they are. However you mould your own look in the mirror, imitate Rihanna and declare “I look cute!”

Always finish your look by feeling yo’self, it matters that you are feeling good, not just looking good.

Christmas is only weeks away (eeek) which means that Santa is coming soon and that has us thinking – about pressies, obvs.

There is so much sh*t we wanna get, and then we found out that an ode to our childhood existed in a make-up palette.

Say hello to the collab of dreams – NCLA Beauty and Barbie.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Check out our story for the full reveal of the NCLA x Barbie collection! #nclaxbarbie

A post shared by NCLA (@nclabeauty) on

NCLA, a Los Angeles vegan beauty brand have joined forces with Mattel for a stunning all-pink collection featuring Barbie-themed nail polish, cuticle oil, lippies and nail wraps. 

And if the nostalgia wasn't enough already, all of the products are presented in ‘90s-themed patterns.

NCLA CEO Elin Dannerstedt said, “My vision for this collaboration was to take you back to the ‘90s, playing with Totally Hair Barbie or Malibu Barbie or even just regular Barbie.” 

She continued, “Every single detail is created after a real Barbie pattern, quote, and not to mention, a miniature Barbie nail polish box! Can you even?”

The cuticle oil actually smells like bubblegum and the nail wraps come in four cute styles – a Saved By the Bell-esque print, a classic Barbie print, a playful palm tree pattern and a ’90s design.

And it's limited edition so grab it while it's hot. 

ALL together now, ''I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world...''
