    Meet Our Small Business Pick For June: Luxe-Yet-Affordable Makeup Brand Aronsé Cosmetics

    If you’re after Insta-worthy makeup that looks good on EVERY skin tone, you’ve come to the right place!

    As we adjust to the "new normal" and the re-opening of nonessential shops, it's important to still remember all the independently-owned brands operating online and providing amazing products and services! With that in mind, here’s our top independently-owned business pick for June:

    Meet Aronsé Cosmetics. Founded by businesswoman Sharon Semakula (who currently runs the company alongside her full-time job at a global investment bank), they stock luxe makeup at an affordable price – and it's all tailored to look amazing on deeper skin tones! Here’s what you need to know about them…

    Aronsé Cosmetics / Via

    1. They make high-quality, luxury cosmetics with a surprisingly affordable price tag (their best-selling eyeshadow palette is under £20 – I'm just saying!)

    Their packaging has a high-quality look and feel that you would normally expect to pay a whole lot more for!

    Self Made eyeshadow palette price: £19.99

    2. They have a range of eyeshadow and lip colour shades that look great on everyone but are designed to *really* pop on deeper skin tones!

    3. Their products will help you create infinite Insta-worthy lewks for less!

    4. The stunning pops of colour are balanced out by more wearable lip shades that have comfortable matte and cream finishes.

    Their best-selling neutral liquid lipsticks Hot Chocolate and Brown Sugar (pictured together) both come in at only £9.99 each!

    5. If you haven't realised this already, I'm *kinda* obsessed with their beauty collection. Here are some of my favourites: their Self Made eyeshadow palette has 12 highly-pigmented shades, including dazzling shimmers and blendable mattes!
