A slice of the beauty market
For several years, major international cosmetics and beauty brands, like Guerlain, Chanel, Lancôme and L'Oréal Paris, have been sharing the market with an increasing number of smaller brands created by celebrities, all intent on modeling and promoting their own products.
Rihanna's Fenty Beauty brand, for example, has proved a hit with beauty fans, not to mention Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics, Lady Gaga's Haus Beauty and Kim Kardashian's KKW Beauty. Jennifer Lopez also recently launched a beauty capsule with the Inglot Cosmetics brand. It therefore comes as no surprise to see internationally renowned models like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley follow suit by launching into the sector.
