There are some people who think wearing makeup is an art, and there are others who think it’s a necessity. Some people use makeup merely to camouflage their faces, while others use it to make a fashion statement. There are many ways in which makeup affects people’s lives. Choosing the right brand for your look requires caution. Various celebrities have created their own beauty brands since Rihanna launched her successful skincare and makeup brand Fenty in 2017. Even though most celebs work in this field to earn money, not all are involved solely for financial gain. There are a few celebrities who are successful in creating their own brands. Similarly, cosmetics are not an exception. Brands owned by celebrities are impeccable, and they use only the best products.
Below is a list of celebrities who have made their mark in both their career and makeup industry.
Fenty Beauty By Rihanna
In September 2017, Rihanna launched her cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty. The brand is known to appeal to a wide range of skin tones and genders, especially with the Pro Filt’R foundation.
The original launch included 40 shades, but now includes 50. The singer revolutionized cosmetics after she launched a line of foundations that includes 40 shades. Fenty makeup also offers concealers, highlighters, and brushes, in addition to lipsticks and blushes.
Rihanna intends to create a new brand under her “Fenty Beauty” brand in addition to her successful skincare line. While Rihanna offered few details about her brand new “Fenty Skincare” collection, she said the line will be for men and women and she has been working on it for almost two years. Her company is a true industry pioneer, with women and people of all races and ethnicities represented.

Rare Beauty By Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has launched her own cosmetic brand called Rare Beauty. The beauty guru Nikkie Tutorials has reviewed her products favorably. For people who enjoy looking natural, she specializes in natural makeup and light makeup. One of the reasons for the brand’s popularity is that its packaging is designed to address motor issues, such as Lupus, as Selena Gomez has Lupus.
Furthermore, the couple has confirmed that 100 million dollars will be donated to mental health charities because Gomez serves as an advocate in this field and executive producer of the hit TV show 13 Reasons Why, which deals with mental health issues in teenage girls.

Flower Beauty By Drew Berrymore
In 2013, the first Flower Beauty products were available only at Walmart, ranging from lip glosses to makeup brushes. In spite of being at a store known for cheap makeup, Flower is a surprisingly affordable and high-quality product. This year’s best of beauty award was given to Flower’s Glisten Up Highlighter Chubby Stick. Even skin that is prone to oily shines in a subtle golden tone. In addition to the Supernova Celestial Skin Elixir Primer ($16), Barrymore has described it as a cult product. Barrymore says the purple-hued primer sells out a lot because it is infused with pigments. Flowers partnered with Ulta in 2018, which helped the brand grow even more. Besides makeup products, her cruelty-free line includes accessories such as brushes and makeup bags, as well as fragrances.
