It’s not usual to see the world’s most glamorous celebrities beaming on advertisements for beauty products, but did you know that some of the world’s leading stars are sometimes the brains behind the brands too?
So while we can’t always access the makeup gurus, facialists and hair stylists that the A-list have on speed dial, it turns out we can still easily indulge in little moments of celebrity-worthy pampering at home.
Here are some of our go-to hero brands for when we need to feel like we could take on a red carpet if given the opportunity.
Actress Tracee Ellis Ross is known for her statement-making curly hair, as was her iconic songstress mom Diana. It therefore made total sense when the star launched Pattern, a hair-care line for people with curls ranging from 3B to 4C textures, all housed in awesome, colorful packaging. Ross told Allure she had been dreaming about an affordable brand that could take the laborious chore out of styling natural hair ever since she was a teenager. Prices start at $9 for a 3-ounce bottle of shampoo.
Whether it’s wine or home interiors, there aren’t many things Drew Barrymore has yet to turn her hand to. Of course, the actress’ makeup brand Flower Beauty has also won over her legion of fans. The line was launched at Walmarts across the country in 2013, but is now available inexpensively at the likes of Ulta, Superdrug and Kroger.
