The women are recognized by ‘Forbes’ for making millions from their own efforts

Black women are some of the wealthiest members of this year’s Forbes Richest Self-Made Women Under 40 List.

Last year Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty was certified by Forbes as the wealthiest female musician in the world. And now, with a net worth of $600M, Rihanna, 32, has made Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women Under 40 list for the first time.

Most of Rihanna’s wealth lies in her cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty (a venture with luxury goods group LVMH), and her Savage x Fenty lingerie line, which is co-owned by Techstyle Fashion Company.

“We have this amazing emotional connection with customers who’ve never been able to find their shade of foundation before,” Rihanna told Vogue in 2017. “Seeing women crying at the makeup counter, it’s crazy to even think about.”

Rihanna is also making a huge difference with her charitable organization, Clara Lionel Foundation, which has donated $22.5M this year just for coronavirus relief.
