Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, launched Fenty Beauty in 2017 in a partnership with luxury goods company LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton).
She is worth $1.7bn (£1.2bn), with an estimated $1.4bn coming from the value of Fenty Beauty.
The company reportedly made $100m (£72m) in its first 40 days.
It makes more money than other celebrity-founded beauty brands such as Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty and Jessica Alba’s Honest Company, according to Forbes.
