From Rihanna to Kylie Jenner, Louise McSharry picks her favourite celebrity makeup lines

I need to admit, I rolled my eyes once I learn the information that Scarlett Johansson was launching a magnificence line. Another one, I assumed. There have been plenty of superstar magnificence launches of late. I’m not towards them in precept, however I’m bored of seeing large names who’ve by no means expressed any actual curiosity in makeup or skincare all of a sudden speaking about their ardour for the realm.

hese persons are typically a few of the world’s most naturally lovely, with entry to the world’s finest magnificence professionals; they’re going to have to work arduous to make me imagine that no matter product they’re promoting will get me anyplace shut to the degrees of aesthetic perfection they obtain. We don’t know a lot about Scarlett’s line but, apart from it taking “a clear, accessible strategy to magnificence”, however I received’t be working out to purchase it. Why would I purchase magnificence merchandise from a celeb once I may purchase from lines based by makeup artists and skincare consultants?
However, it might be unfair to write off each superstar magnificence enterprise. They’re entitled to enter the market and generally it makes good sense. Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits, for instance, make sense. The world was obsessive about her lips and the merchandise she used to make them look as full as they did (filler, it turned out). Kim Kardashian’s contour kits make sense. She and her sisters had primarily launched the straight feminine world to contouring (after all, it originated in drag, like many latest magnificence tips). Tracee Ellis Ross’ haircare line, Pattern, is smart. She is an icon of the natural-hair motion.

Haven’t heard of them? I’m not shocked. Maybe Scarlett Johansson’s line will probably be wonderful, and I’ll rescind my eye roll — if she was promoting tickets for the genetic lottery, I’d be first in line.

Glossier’s Cloud Paints (€18 at glossier.com) turned an nearly prompt basic once they launched shortly after the muse of the model in 2012. This gel-like product is available in a tube and could be tapped gently onto the cheeks to construct a natural-looking flush, which lasts the day.
