Finding the perfect foundation match can be a serious challenge. For albino nurse Krystal Robertson, it's been nearly impossible. That is, until Rihanna released her incredibly inclusive makeup line, Fenty Beauty, which has 40 shades for its Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Now, Robertson and others with albinism are able to complete their beauty routines to their actual liking. 

  • Robertson took to Instagram to share a rave review of her new match made in foundation heaven, which is Fenty Beauty's shade #110.

    "Rethinking all the times I ended up orange," she wrote in the caption. "It's a new world, great job [Rihanna]."

    Robertson's shade is the second to the lightest shade, proving that Rihanna kept every kind of skin tone in mind with her makeup line.

  • Robertson continued her rave review in a Facebook beauty group. "Didn't realize I was this light," she wrote.

    "Loving the feel of the foundation so far .... also I'm albino, I have no pigment so it can be hard to get a nice match ... always end up orange," she wrote.

  • She wrote on Insta, "It means the world that [Rihanna] not only made a diversity of shades for all women of color, but she brought us all together."

    When she was at Sephora first trying out and swatching Rihanna's makeup line, she noticed how all types of women were complimenting each other on how well the line matched their skin tones.

  • Even Rihanna noticed Robertson's review, following her on Twitter and sharing her post on her Instagram story.

    To that, Robertson just wanted Rihanna to know, "Thank you Rihanna and Fenty Beauty! This shows that they have great minds and big hearts, and I can't wait for future products they will have available! It doesn't stop there."

    Hopefully, other brands will pick up on the momentum started by Rihanna and create makeup shades truly meant for everyone.
