Pop star and beauty entrepreneur Rihanna is returning to the UAE. But this time, it’s not for a concert, rather for a beauty event — and all proceeds are going to charity.

Sephora and Fenty Beauty, Rihanna’s make-up brand, have partnered up for the teaching event on September 29, at a venue that has yet to be announced. For the first time, Rihanna and her make-up artists, Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal, will give exclusive behind-the-scenes tips and tricks.

Ticket packages start at Dh5,500, which will include reserved seating behind the front row, as well as a Fenty Beauty gift bag. A second package for Dh7,500 includes front row seating and access to a VIP party (for 21+ attendees only), plus a ‘VIP’ Fenty Beauty gift bag. Proceeds will go to the charity organisation Dubai Cares.

Doors open at 2pm, with the event starting at 3pm. According to ticket sellers Ticketmaster, use of mobile phones to take photographs and videos will be permitted during the event.

In 2016, Kim Kardashian West held a masterclass in Dubai with her make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic for Dh5,870 per ticket.
