Celebrities are often seen as trendsetters when it comes to fashion and beauty. We enjoy following them on social media, seeing what they get up and what they have to say. We’re curious about their lives and how they live – from what they wear and how they look are particular areas of interest for most of us.
Celebs have a knack for entering different industries to promote themselves and getting more heads turning. Models Direct take a look at those who grace our screens, bring music to our ears or strut the catwalks, and how they have tapped into the cosmetic industry by launching their own signatory makeup collection. Let’s begin!
Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity who is to release her own cosmetics line called Rare Beauty this summer 2020. Her range is named after her 2020 album which aims to bring out the pop goddess in all of us.
Jennifer Lopez is a timeless beauty and is getting better with age. She released her own makeup collection two years back in 2018 with INGLOT Cosmetics – they’re a big hit with their innovative O2M Breathable Nail Enamels. J.Lo will make you glow. Now the next question is: when’s she releasing a skincare range to help us all have the amazing skin she has? Only time will tell…
Chrissy Teigen, model, presenter, author (and married to John Legend too, of course), showed us how to get her great looking skin with her makeup line. She partnered with Becca Cosmetics in 2018 to release her collection of lip glosses, eyeshadows, highlighters, and much more.
Lady Gaga’s brand was launched in July 2019 and aimed at being an ethical beauty brand – vegan and cruelty-free. The brand’s first Instagram post read: “Together, we are building a supportive, empowering, inclusive community grounded in kindness, bravery, and creativity. All are welcome in OUR HAUS.” It just makes you want to buy everything and try it all out.
Millie Bobby Brown, star of Netflix’s Stranger Things, announced that she was launching a beauty brand called Florence by Mills last year. She was only 15 when her clean beauty brand was launched which also includes skincare alongside makeup – impressive!
