Makeup can cover blemishes, brighten up dark circles and accentuate our naturally gorgeous features for a bit of glamor. I love trying out different brands to find trending products and new ways to enhance my look. From the glossiest of lip glosses to create the perfect brow and smokey eye, I've tried so many makeup trends that all my friends now ask me for advice.
I've put together a list of 37 trending makeup brands, all of which you can find on Amazon, and I've revealed my favorite products from those brands. Some you may have heard of and others might be new to you, so I highly recommend these cosmetic companies to anyone who loves makeup as much as I do. Many of the following brands were founded by celebrities and have become huge hits in the cosmetic world.
So, whether you're a fan of Rihanna, Selena Gomez, or Lady Gaga, I'm sure you'll find some awesome products from your favorite celeb.
