Lionel Richie is known for being a monumental influence in the music industry as a record-breaking singer, songwriter, musician and record producer, pretty much dabbling in every aspect of Hollywood during his career. But there’s one career move we never thought we’d see Richie pursue in his lifetime: create a cosmetics line.
The star filed a trademark for “Hello By Lionel Richie” last week, according to TMZ, and this obviously will include copyrights to protect everything his brand will be producing. Surprisingly, his latest copyright will include cosmetics, face masks, body glitter, bath beads, hair bows, and nail polish. Shocking, right? And that’s not all, as Richie made sure to include a separate trademark for candles and candle accessories.
Although there are not many details on the collection just yet, it seems like Richie’s new venture is a bit off-brand for him. Could it be possible that his daughter and successful fashion designer, Nicole Richie, will play a part in the launch? Considering she’s known to experiment with her own beauty looks now and again, we wouldn’t be surprised if the entrepreneur helped her father in creating the line, or at least, in designing the packaging. Only time will tell.
