It's safe to say that Rihanna is at the top of her game right now. Fresh off the release of her highly anticipated makeup line, Fenty Beauty, the star has been met with resounding applause. Not only are the products gorgeous (to be honest, that's an understatement), but they also venture into uncharted(ish) territory that few beauty brands have dared explore before her: inclusivity. And while it's disappointing that an all-encompassing colour range should be regarded revolutionary (ahem, especially in 2017), it is, and the response has been epic. In fact, Sephora stores can't keep the foundation in stock.

Equally celebratory, Rihanna's eighth album, Anti, is cozily nuzzled at the top of the charts and was even referenced as one of the most successful recordings of all time—by Forbes, no less. Thus, it's no surprise that Byrdie HQ (and the rest of the human population) is totally enraptured by the singer's every move. So to provide us an intimate glimpse into the life of RiRi, Elle decided to dish her an epic game of 19 questions from 20 of her friends and fans. Keep reading for our five favourite moments.

Rihanna on lipstick…

"Lipstick always got me in trouble. Whether it was at home as a kid, or my early teenage years in my career, I always had the urge to wear it. So I broke all those rules. Now lipstick is like my li’l secret weapon!"

her hair idols…

"This is probably confusing to most, but it's in between Toni Braxton from back in the day with all her short haircuts… and Cindy Crawford. She had the most effortless yet stunning hair."

Her must-have beauty product…

"My finishing touch is usually my highlighter. I love highlighter—it just adds this sense of fantasy to any look."

her favourite body part…

"Well, my favourite body parts on pretty much any woman are the collarbone and shoulders."

the craziest thing she's done for beauty…

"A corset! I'd do it again, though. I'd wear it every day if I could make it out alive!"
