20 Homegrown Beauty Brands We Canít Get Enough Of
istock

We’re all in a beauty frenzy with affordable brands such as ColourPop and Nyx Cosmetics now readily available to us, but have we stopped to take a look at what the local beauty community has been brewing up? Here are just a few great homegrown beauty brands we think you should definitely check out. I don’t know about you, but I know where my next pay check is going!


​1. Dida For Women
This local brand was founded by two beautiful women, Tengku Chanela Jamidah and Didie Nasir, to empower women by promoting confidence with their gorgeous liquid lip shades. Sign me up for some of that!

2. Madu Cosmetics
Singer, songwriter and former radio announcer Hunny Madu, launched her beauty line called Madu Cosmetics late last year. Madu Cosmetics debuted with a collection of seven gorgeous hues of matte lippies called the ‘Artiste’. They are not tested on animals, are paraben-free, and they make you feel gooood!

10. Ronasutra
Not only does this line of mineral make-up make you look good, it's also great for your skin since it's specially formulated for sensitive and problematic skin. We've even heard that because it's made up of minerals, it's good enough to sleep in, though we still probably wouldn't recommend doing so!

11. Velvet Vanity Cosmetics
Probably one of my personal favourites, Velvet Vanity's available vibrant lipstick colours and funky aethetics are right up my alley, and I'm sure you'll like them just as much as I do.
