Indie Makeup Brand Spotlight Week 2  

By: Dr. Stephanie “Steff” Garcia

More indie makeup brands this week! I’ve had such an amazing time this past month trying out all these new-to-me makeup brands! The quality and creativity that’s present within these indie makeup brands is phenomenal. These brands all began from a passion and love for makeup and artistry. I am proud to support these brands and look forward to future collections. 

Again, a huge thank you to Ariel and Adley, owners of Motivate the Earth, for helping inspire this blog and spotlight. Follow Motivate the Earth for all things indie makeup!

BPerfect Cosmetics

This Ireland-based beauty brand was founded by entrepreneur Brendan McDowell in 2013. Since then, BPerfect Cosmetics has collaborated with numerous makeup artists worldwide to bring their own unique flare to the beauty community. I was fortunate enough to pick up their latest collaboration with Stacey Marie MUA, the Carnival III Love Tahiti Collection. It was a dream to use and I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. Check out the three looks I created using this gorgeous palette at the link below.

Rosewood Cosmetics

I discovered this small makeup brand about a month ago on Instagram. Faith Butler, an ambitious and self-motivated black business woman from Detroit, Michigan, created Rosewood Cosmetics to give others self-confidence and a place within the beauty community. I am so proud to support Rosewood Cosmetics because I can clearly see the amount of work and effort Faith and her team put into creating these amazing products. The lip glosses are phenomenal and the highlighters are out of this world! I highly encourage you to check out this brand and buy today!

Kaleidos Makeup

Kaleidos is a Chinese-American beauty brand based out of Shanghai, China. Kaledios believes in fostering a culture of diversity, progression, and individuality. I recently ordered the Escape Pod Eyeshadow Palette, Space Highlighter, and Futurism III Eyeshadow Palette. Everything this brand sells is uniquely packaged and “outer spaced” themed. The shipping to the United States does take some time, but it’s well worth the wait. What I love about this brand is the creativity that manifests before your very eyes. Maybe it’s the packaging, maybe it’s the colors, but there is definitely something invigorating about Kaleidos Makeup.
