We know, we’ve thought about it too – why are there so many celebrity beauty brands? There’s a snaking line of celebrities who’ve tried their luck and leveraged their looks in a crowded and competitive beauty market. Perhaps the most famous and flushed are, of course, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, a brand that set the standard for diversity and inclusion in the industry the world over; Huda Beauty, who through her matte lipsticks and long-lasting formulas wanted to embrace her Iraqi heritage and create makeup with a Middle Eastern influence; and Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, the make-up and skincare brand that catapulted her, albeit controversially, into billionairesville.
