Actress and singer Selena Gomez has been secretly working on a beauty line, and it launches this summer. Titled ‘Rare Beauty’, her brand will roll out in Sephora stores across the US.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news to her 167 million followers, Gomez revealed that she has been working on this project for two years. Although the star has yet to comment officially on the products she will be releasing, a behind-the-scenes video shot at Rare Beauty shows her playing around with foundation and lip colours.
“I think Rare Beauty can be more than a beauty brand,” Gomez narrates in the clip. “I want us all to stop comparing ourselves to each other and just start embracing our uniqueness.”
The newly-instated Rare Beauty Instagram account sheds light on the brand’s philosophy, explaining: “Our mission is to shape conversations around beauty, self-acceptance, and mental health. We want to help people get more access to support and services, and help people feel more authentically connected to one another and less alone in the world.”
