From Tattoo Balms to Bronzer, Here’s What to Buy From the Best Musician-Backed Beauty Brands

It makes sense to look to celebrities for beauty advice — after all, they’ve logged a lifetime of sitting in hair and makeup chairs. Musicians are also cashing in on what they’ve learned from the pros, and launching lucrative cosmetics, skincare, and hair care lines in their own names.

The latest among the entrepreneurial pop star set to debut a beauty brand is Jennifer Lopez, who earlier this summer teased her forthcoming JLo Beauty label on Instagram, joining an empire that already encompasses fragrances and fashion. A trademark request that Lopez filed in 2019 reveals that the line will include “skin moisturizers, skin cleansers, beauty masks, non-medicated skin serums, and face and body creams.”

Lopez has yet to reveal JLo Beauty’s drop date, but the multi-hyphenate entertainer recently unveiled a hair care collection with women’s wellness brand Hers (more on that below).

The best celebrity beauty brands give fans a chance to get a piece of their favorite singers off-stage, while supporting their non-musical entrepreneurial endeavors.

Check out some of our favorite celebrity beauty brands helmed by chart-topping artists, including Kesha, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and even David Lee Roth (that is not a typo). Here’s what to shop from the best celeb brands online.

1. Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga

Launched in 2019 on Amazon Prime Day, Lady Gaga‘s Haus of Laboratories beauty line is comprised of gender-neutral cosmetics for transforming into Mother Monster-approved looks. The vegan and cruelty-free collection features show-stopping eyeshadow palettes in glittering shades, vibrant lip colors, liquid eyeliners, and more, all created to inspire “self-expression and invention,” per a release.

Rihanna‘s Fenty Beauty was a smashing success when it debuted in 2017, thanks to its inclusive range of cosmetics available in over 50 shades. The makeup line features lightweight formulas and includes products for eyes, lips, face, and body, including foundations, powders, liquid eyeliners, lipsticks, bronzers, and much more, plus beauty tools and brushes. The brand’s convenient online shade finder also makes it easy to match your skin tone.

Cruelty-free Fenty Skin is the latest addition to the superstar-turned-entrepreneur’s lifestyle empire, joining LVMH-owned sister brands Fenty Beauty and the lingerie line, Savage X Fenty (coming soon is RiRi’s luxury fashion house, Fenty.) The gender-inclusive clean skincare label launched earlier this year with multi-tasking and refillable products that work effortlessly together, including a cleanser, toner serum, and SPF 30 moisturizer.

New to the lineup is the Instant Reset cream, an overnight gel that promises to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots and decrease the size of pores. The brand is available exclusively on FentySkin.com.
