Being a celebrity is big business, and thanks to the beauty industry, it's only gotten bigger.
Hollywood stars like Rihanna, the owner of Fenty Beauty, Kylie Jenner, the selfie guru behind Kylie Cosmetics and Gabrielle Union with her hair-care line, Flawless by Gabrielle Union, are making major moves in the beauty industry with successful brands and innovative products. It's a relatively new phenomenon, as celebs are consciously moving away from collaborative efforts with big name cosmetics and hair companies and towards entrepreneurship. They want to call the shots.
It's also understandable. The people that spend an hour plus in makeup and hair everyday certainly have a good grasp of what works for them in front of cameras. On the other hand, when a celeb can't find a product to solve their beauty woos, it seemingly time to fill that void with a beauty venture that promises financial return.
While you may expect celebs like Kourtney Kardashian to join in on the beauty fun, there are more than a few celebs that we didn't see coming.
Check out the celebs with beauty projects in the works below!
"There is something incredibly powerful about red lipstick," the Wrinkle in Time star said.
The actress isn't taking her title as Storyteller-in-Chief of Elizabeth Arden lightly. In fact, in honor of the brand's March On initiative for female empowerment, the star is debuting the Limited Edition Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick. The brand, in partnership, has made a $1 million pledge to UN Women, donating proceeds from the lipstick.
The eldest of the Kardashian clan just may be joining Kim and Kylie as a beauty entrepreneur. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star submitted legal documents to secure the name "Kourt," as reported by Vogue. While this doesn't tell us exactly what she'll be launching, based on her app, we're guessing it's going to be all-natural and glow-inducing.
According to TMZ, the athlete and new mom has trademarked the name ""Aneres" (Serena spelled backwards), which will produce all of your beauty needs, including bath products, makeup and skin-care products.

I always loved glitter and, especially now, I'm loving glitter on a whole new level. For the next collection, we have a whole glitter collection coming out. I'm obsessed with sparkles."
