Women generally cannot have enough makeup, skincare, and hair care. Whether we have enough time for them all is a debate for another day. And we are equally star-struck, considering the Bollywood-loving nation that we are. So, when the two worlds come together and paint the town red, yellow, blue, orange, and all the other colours, there’s no holding us back.
Here are 8 Indian celebs and the beauty brands that they own.
1. Katrina Kaif – Kay Beauty
Being a major stakeholder with Nykaa for a year, Katrina’s brainchild, Kay Beauty, was born in 2019 in collaboration with the e-commerce giant. The product range is specially curated keeping in mind the Indian complexion and the unique requirements of our skin, although they are manufactured in the U.S. From makeup to set the base to easy-to-use eye makeup and a fascinating choice of lip colour, the exhaustive makeup range boasts of it all.
2. Deepika Padukone – 82°East
The Gehraaiyaan star’s skincare range made quite a furore at the time of its launch in November last year. While skincare enthusiasts vied to check out what was in store, beauty influences made a beeline for reviewing the products that were a brand of the brand launch. Being an ardent proponent of self-love, self-care, and natural skin care remedies, it is no surprise that her brand too stands for the same. The product range comprises a blend of herbs and other natural ingredients. The objective of 82°East is to provide hydration and protect the skin from the ravaging long-term effects of the sun.
3. Priyanka Chopra Jonas – Anomaly
The Desi Girl made everyone on digital take notice of the launch of her hair care brand, Anomaly as recently as 2022. They launched a range of shampoos, conditioners, and mousses and have been adding to their repertoire gradually. The products are for every hair & scalp type and aim to treat and prevent common hair problems. The bottles are consciously crafted from eco-friendly materials that are aligned to meet the brand’s mission of sustainability.
4. Sonakshi Sinha – PLANTAS & SOEZI
The Lootera actor made her entry into the world of entrepreneurship with the cruelty-free, vegan, sustainable, organic personal care brand, PLANTAS in December 2021. The products are also devoid of parabens, artificial colours, chemical preservatives, and fragrances.
However, Sonakshi made a grand co-launch of her press-on nail wear brand in May 2022. Her product offerings include two categories – the “Ready To Wear” kit and the “EziON & EziOFF Experience” kit, both of which are bestsellers. The exhaustive range of colours and exciting shades of the press-on nails ensure, along with their affordability and reliable quality, ensure that they appeal to the varied sensibilities of millennials, the brand’s target audience. The ease of usability, without taking up time, is another major attraction. The range also specialises in catering to varied occasions – everyday wear as well as special events and occasions like weddings, anniversaries, and parties.
