Rihanna is taking us all back to school with the launch of Fenty University, and it might just be our favourite thing to happen all year. 

We won't be alone when we say that we've always dreamt of a make-up masterclass by the queen of Fenty Beauty herself. Now, it looks like the time has finally come as the brand has opened the virtual doors to its new online make-up course. 

Dropping the latest instalment this week following its launch in early September, Fenty University is a series of online make-up lessons. Each lesson gives "students" the chance to learn how to create some of Rihanna's most popular make-up looks from her beloved music videos and red carpet appearances.

Like most head teachers, Rihanna won't be the one doing the actual teaching - she's far too busy perfecting her latest beauty formulas, designing new pieces for Savage x Fenty and Fenty Maison, and working on that long-awaited album (please RiRi). But don't worry, you'll be in safe hands as the make-up wizards behind her iconic looks will be the ones showing you how it's done. 

All the virtual classes will be held by celebrity make-up artists and Fenty Beauty ambassadors Hector Espinal and Priscilla Ono. Fenty fans will know them as the masters of the 'Fenty Face',  the glowy skin finish we always see on RiRi. Could we ask for better teachers? No way. 

The course is broken down into three categories and takes place over the course of three weeks and will cater to looks for all skin tones and types. The sessions are completely free and will be taking place on Fenty Beauty's social media platforms, so make sure you're locked in. There'll also be lots of other make-up artists and experts in the classes for extra tips and tricks, so you won't want to miss we. 

We definitely won't!
