Only a few of us spend more time in a hair and makeup chair than celebrities, so it’s safe to say they’ve picked up a few tricks along the way. After all, they have access to the best hair, skin-care and makeup experts in the world. Some famous faces have channeled that into working with brands—and some have gone all the way and launched, or partnered with beauty brands of their very own. The great thing about the best celebrity beauty lines is it’s like being able to go through your favorite star’s makeup bag. It makes it a lot easier to replicate their routines and signature looks. To help you do just that, we’ve rounded up the top makeup, skin-care and hair from the best celebrity beauty brands this year.
Rare Beauty is all about inner and outer beauty, since the line is meant to encourage people to embrace what makes them unique and use makeup to highlight, not hide that. Gomez wants everyone to practice self-love and acceptance. Another element that makes her line unique is it was built to give back. One percent of all product sales will go toward the Rare Impact Fund to provide mental health services, particularly in underserved communities. Check out Selena’s brand here.
Issa Rae is the new face and official co-owner of Sienna Naturals, a natural hair-care brand formulated for women with textured hair.
