Try these celebrity skincare brands made by these famous people
We all know how popular Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line is or how hard it is to get our hands on Kylie’s Lip Kits. Celebrity makeup brands are all the rave this year with more and more celebrities trying their hand in creating cosmetics.
Why celebrity skincare brands? Well, they’re made by our favorite influencers, and it comes naturally that we support them by patronizing their products. Also, most of them are so gorgeous on the skin; you end up admiring that celebrity even more.
From hair dye to eyelash primers, celebrities like Bella Thorne, Lady Gaga, Kourtney Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez are dabbling in personalized beauty. When a particular product is marketed by someone whom we know have flawless skin with or without makeup, it must be worth a try.
Beauty Trends of 2019
Before we begin with the brands our favorite stars have in store for us, let’s take a look at the beauty trends of the year. This will give us an idea on their inspirations for their lines or the goals that they strive for with their products.
1. Diversity and inclusion
Those with darker skin tones know too well how difficult it is to find a foundation that blends perfectly on the skin. Moreover, those with combination skin types don’t have it easy in finding a topical solution that can accommodate both the oily T-zone and the dry areas of the face.
This year, it’s all about stretching the limits of cosmetics and skincare to include a wider variety of skin types. Because the truth is, no one size fits all when it comes to our skin.
From foundations that come in 40+ shades to skincare that is made explicitly for a particular skin type instead of having “suitable for all skin types” written on the bottle, diversity has become a standard in the beauty industry.
The industry is also picking up on the current state of our planet and are creating products that are more thoughtful of the environment and sustainable. Some brands are plastic-free or those that are cruelty-free, vegan, organic and are committed to giving back to the community.
One example would be cosmetic giants L’Oréal and Unilever who are committing to reduce their water consumption per finished product by more than half before 2020. Celebrities are taking the hint on sustainability and incorporating initiatives towards a greener tomorrow within their brands.
3. Health and beauty convergence
In the past, makeup was makeup and skincare was skin care. There was no in between. Today, health and beauty are converging in even more significant aspects. We will have more makeup products that are infused with vitamins and minerals that will take care of the skin as well. Meanwhile, skincare products will be enough to achieve your no-makeup-makeup look because of how it rejuvenates the skin.
Consumers today are becoming more and more conscious about the ingredients in the cosmetics and skincare products they use. Companies, therefore, must maintain transparency with their formulations. Some brands list down what their products are made of, and there are those that indicate which harmful ingredients are not included in their line.

3. Go-To Skincare
Former beauty editor and author Zoë Foster Blake created this brand after years of reviewing and testing every kind of skin care product available in the market. She also collected the honest feedback from women on the products they like, don’t like, and are confused about. With that much experience in her arsenal, what was left was to start her own brand – which she did.

The product revitalizes the skin and promotes cell renewal to minimize pores, uneven skin tones, and texture.
5. Josie Maran Cosmetics
Model Josie Maran started this Argan-centric line of makeup and skincare products before anyone ever thought of infusing the super-hydrating oil into makeup. Today, the concept is everywhere.
