From makeup to skincare, these are the beauty brands you need to try in 2019.
A cosmetic company that’s taken the US by storm, Milk Makeup first launched in 2016, promoting the concept of “clean beauty” and raising awareness of the environmental impact of makeup. And now it’s coming to the UK.
Launching on the Cult Beauty website from 28 January 2019, Milk Makeup’s offering includes everything from matte lipsticks and brow gels to serums and face masks.
The best part, though, is that the brand is 100 per cent vegan and “clean”, meaning none of its products contain common beauty ingredients such as beeswax, gelatin, parabens and sulphates.

You can find almost anything on Amazon, and now that list includes an own-brand makeup line.
This month, the retailer has unveiled Find, an extension of the online giant’s fashion label, that offers a range of affordable cosmetics.
Prices range from just £8.30 for a lip set to £12.46 for a set of two highlighters.
What’s more, selected bundles are included in Amazon’s Subscribe & Save programme, giving customers access to additional savings on repeat orders.

The brainchild of Hollywood actor Drew Barrymore, Flower Beauty has been established in the US for years but it’s never made its way over to the UK – until now.
Turning her hand to the world of beauty, Barrymore’s collection launched at Superdrug in December 2018, offering customers an impressive range of products that are high in quality and low in price.
Believing beauty should be accessible to everyone, the collection includes everything you need to kit out your makeup stash, including flattering foundations, a contour palette and setting spray.

London-based natural skincare company Disciple should be top of the list for anyone that suffers from stressed-out skin.
Created by psychotherapist Charlotte Ferguson, the range not only helps the skin’s surface, but uses adaptogens to improve the body internally too.
Hand-blended in small batches from the best raw botanical ingredients, this clean, streamlined range is fairly priced and includes products like the Balancing Mist, Dreamy Skin Retinyl Oil and Miracle Drops CBD.

Augustinus Bader is like no other skincare brand we’ve come across. Developed by a world leading expert in stem cell research, Professor Augustinus Bader, this name-sake brand uses a patented “Trigger Factor Complex” in its formulas to target signs of ageing and environmental damage.
