If the past year has taught us anything it’s that sometimes it’s okay to stray away from the mainstream, dig a little deeper and support the smaller and independent brands. We’ve been spending most of our time barefaced at home and now the world is beginning to open, we have rounded up three makeup and skincare brands to try this winter.
By Jess D is all about empowering you, no matter your skin tone. With a range of lip glosses, liquid lipsticks, and the newly launched palettes, there is something for every budget. We absolutely love the sold out ‘Rum Cake’ liquid lipstick which is the perfect nude for deeper skin tones. It makes the perfect lipliner when mixed with a nude and the perfect autumnal shade for fairer skin tones.
“I launched By Jess D in the summer of 2019, with the aim of creating a cosmetics brand where everyone could feel beautiful, no matter their shade. Growing up, the media didn’t show diverse beauty and I thought that was wrong. After 3 years of research, I felt proud to launch a cruelty-free, high-quality brand where everyone is represented.”

The Glowcery launched in March 2020 and have already had a few accolades under their belt – their plant-powered oil recently won the Best Facial Oil of 2020. That has already set them up for success, but if you’ve never heard of the brand, they’re all about superfood skincare for healthy and glowing skin. Think of it as nutrition for the skin!
They have recent launched a whole host of new body products and they will keep you moisturised throughout winter. We’re in love with the Golden Nectar – Nourishing Body Oil which is guaranteed to have us mistaken for a disco ball in party season.

Kem Beauty has intentionally created products with the customer in mind. If we’re not lusting over the exfoliating wash, we are in love with the blushes, glosses and lashes which look great on all skin tones.
“Created in 2017, Kem Beauty creates products designed to upgrade your current beauty and skincare routine. We carefully design and develop products with you, our customers in mind. Products that are reliable, effective and priced fairly.”
