The magical number 40 in the beauty industry is getting a huge competition. After Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty took the makeup world by storm with its 40-shade foundation range, brands started to feel the pressure to become more inclusive. Since then, many established cosmetics companies worked hard to expand their shade ranges. Some even hired experts from the influencer world to help them develop more inclusive products. Just recently Jackie Aina teamed up with Too Faced which resulted in expanding the range for the brand’s Born This Way Foundation.
We may be halfway through the summer, but for Kylie Cosmetics is the hottest time of the season to drop yet another fun collection. Kylie Jenner started teasing the new Summer Collection with a series of electric shots and a video she did for Vogue. The beauty mogul posted a photo in which she is wearing a neon orange latex and PVC costume sporting matching makeup. She also took it to Snapchat for a full reveal and let’s just say summer season is set to get a lot better.

After topping charts in their homeland and conquering the U.S top lists, the infamous pop group decided to offer a special treat for all of their fans – Little Mix is officially launching a makeup line.

From seductive feline flicks and red hot lips to everyone’s favorite bronze glam, we gathered the most iconic celebrity signature beauty looks of all time. Slide through this article to see the makeup looks and hairstyles that made history over the years.
Dita Von Teese
Dita Von Teese is a seductress by vocation! She always rocks a delicate feline flick paired with a bold pout. In most of the cases, the burlesque dancer opts for a fire red lipstick that looks very flattering on her fair complexion. She is also recognizable for her signature lob styled in glamorous retro curls.
The beauty industry is going stronger than ever. Popular celebrities are starting their own labels, while the existing brands are expanding their range. One of the newest trends includes skincare companies embarking on and expanding into color cosmetics. The latest one to join the craze is the ultra-popular brand GlamGlow. We already know them for the super-fun My Little Pony glitter face masks, and intense overnight treatments.
GlamGlow chose just the perfect product to be their debut makeup one. There isn’t a single lady out there who is not obsessed with highlighters. So, the label made a very smart move and launched a mesmerizing highlighter palette. The GlowPowder is a true delight to the skin, both because of the radiant shimmer and the great ingredient list. It offers various uses including face and body.
“Introducing #GLOWPOWDER! Our newest innovation is a Hyaluronic Acid Infused Highlighting Palette. This silky smooth palette of hybrid glow powders comes in three complementary glowing shades: NUDE GLOW, SUN GLOW, and PEARL GLOW. Available NOW on GLAMGLOW.com for $42! #GLAMGLOW #HELLOSEXY’- the brand announced on Instagram.
The glow palette features three different shades. Pearl Glow, as the name suggests carries a light flattering iridescent shade. Nude Glow is the middle color, ideal for different skin tones. Sun Glow is the darkest one, perfect for summer days. Just like many times before GlamGlow didn’t disappoint with the packaging. They chose a fun hot pink case that carries the letters GLOW on top. The highlighter palette comes with a mirror.
Another amazing thing about the highlighters is the formula. The brand wanted to introduce a product that will both provide you with that ethereal glow and improve the health of your skin. They sure know a thing or two on how to get a perfect complexion. That’s why you’ll notice that the GlamPowder palette includes hyaluronic acid as a part of the ingredient list. The Brazilian Golden Clay is an already proven effective part of their face masks and is also featured in the highlighter formula. According to the label, this new release is set “to diffuse light, blur imperfections, smooth skin, and refine and enhance your complexion’. No parabens, phthalate or sulfates in the formula.
The best thing about this exciting release is that is already available online. All you have to do for a healthy glow is visit glamglow.com. This may be a little over the price limit considering other highlighter palettes on the market. All of GlamGlow’s products are on the pricier side, so such a price tag was expected.

There is another promising beauty brand on the radar. The Allure founder Linda Wells was well aware of the lack of inclusivity in the beauty industry and worked on developing her own brand that will cater to everyone. Wells is currently Revlon’s chief creative officer and decided to use her position to teach the world an important lesson: “flesh” is not just one color.
Revlon’s newest venture Flesh is joining the competitive beauty market with 12 new products that make a total of 96 SKUs. The cosmetics company that also owns drugstore favorites such as Almay, CND, and Sinful Colors is now taking over the high-end beauty world. According to Linda Wells, Flesh is “like an indie brand within the company.” She worked with separate vendors and makeup artist of her choice to develop the prestige line. Therefore, you shouldn’t expect any similarities between Flesh and the drugstore brands owned by the same company. Linda and her team came up with 12 products that mainly focus on the skin, but the line also includes eye and lip products. Inclusivity is in the brand’s DNA which is reflected even in its name.
“Sometimes a writer would describe something as ‘flesh color’ in a story and we’d have to say, No no no, you can’t say flesh or nude and have it be interpreted as one color … So this is the idea of flesh color being every color of skin ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö√Ü the color of your skin. We want to change that idea by changing the whole color assortment of flesh,” Wells explains remembering her editing days.
One of the most anticipated products of the line is the Firm Flesh Thickstick Foundation ($18). It’s a stick foundation with medium-coverage and dewy finish that comes in 40 shades “from the palest pale to the darkest dark.” According to its creator Linda, what makes Flesh different from all the other brands that introduced 40 shades of foundation after Rihanna debuted this impressive foundation range is that she made sure every shade looks good when applied on the skin. Sometimes certain foundation shades can look gray and ashy on the skin, a problem that Linda focused on solving.
Besides the promising foundation stick, Flesh offers several more skin-enhancing products. There is the Fresh Face Illuminating Primer ($32) packed with vitamin B5 and blue and purple photo-reflecting components that give a glowing look to your skin. Moreover, there are three luminizers: Touch Flesh Highlighting Balm ($18), a stick highlighter that comes in four shades, Ripe Flesh Glisten Drops ($28), a liquid highlighter also available in four shades, that can be used in many ways, and the Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder ($28) available in six shades. To bring a model-approved healthy flush on the cheeks the brand offers the Tender Flesh Blush ($26), a powder blush available in eight shades, and the Fleshpot Eye & Cheek Gloss that can be used on both the cheeks and the eyes.
When it comes to color products, Flesh introduced the Fleshcolor Eye Shadow Palette ($38) which features nine eyeshadows in a few finishes. There are also a few different types of lipsticks from a lipstick available in a compact form that promises to give you that blurry lip effect seen on the runways to traditional bullet lipsticks available in a couple of finishes.
The Flesh makeup line officially dropped on Sunday, June 24, and is available for purchase online at Ulta’s website. The products will hit select Ulta stores on July 8.

The trio consists of two liquid lipsticks, one carries a neutral tone while the other is a rose nude. Lastly, the rose gold glittery lip gloss will look gorgeous by itself or on top of the lipsticks. The Sorta Sweet lip trio is packed in a cute box covered in pink and gold candies.
