Blame Rihanna. Following the 2017 launch of her wildly successful Fenty makeup and skincare brand, more and more celebrities have decided to drop their own beauty brands. Names such as Pharrell Williams, Lauren Conrad, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Victoria Beckham, Alicia Keys, the Olsen twins, plus a smattering of Kardashian-Jenners are all clamoring for a slice of the beauty pie. With some celebrities are still in the rumor-only stages – cc: Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Gwen Stefani, Ciara, Hailey Bieber, Kylie, Kendall and Kris Jenner – there’s no sign of this celeb-led trend easing anytime soon. Here’s the influencer and celebrity brands that have launched so far in this apparently neverending year.

The Tiktok influencer and former Disney actress teamed up with dermatologist Karen Kagha to create Known Beauty, a skincare brand that uses DNA diagnostics testing to distinguish seven skin categories. After a cheek swab and online questionnaire, the brand will personalize a regime that they claim is tailored to the client’s chromosomes.

The talented multi-hyphenate has returned to the beauty world – her Glow fragrance is one of the most successful celebrity scents of the 00s, which still to this day haunts nightclub bathrooms – with a skincare brand. She says she owes her ageless appearance to nothing but good old-fashioned olive oil, which coincidentally is the main ingredient of JLo Beauty.
