Kim Kardashian: KKW Beauty

Famed for introducing the world to the art of contouring, Kim Kardashian West tactfully launched KKW Beauty off the back of her success. In June 2017, the social media mogul sold 300,000 creme contour kits within two hours. According to Forbes, the business has already garnered $100 million in revenue. [Photo: Getty]

Victoria Beckham has added another impressive string to her bow, as the fashion designer has finally decided to make her foray into the beauty industry.

Set to launch in AW19, the self-confessed make-up junkie is expanding her empire with Victoria Beckham Beauty which will include the “must-have items in make-up, skincare, fragrance and wellness”.

From Kylie Jenner’s billion dollar company to the fact that Rihanna now makes more money from her beauty line than she does music, we take a look at the appeal behind the world’s most successful celebrity beauty brands.
