Indie Filipino-Owned Beauty Brands to Cop on Shopee

Indie Filipino-Owned Beauty Brands to Cop on Shopee

Spotlight’s on these indie Filipino-owned beauty brands we can’t get enough of



We can’t say this enough—the realm of Filipino beauty is flourishing. We’re in awe of homegrown brands owned by strong Filipina females, like Colourette and Issy & Co., that have paved the way for younger brands to step out and get recognized, even on a global scale.


This time, we’re putting the spotlight on young, local beauty brands making waves on platforms like TikTok and Instagram, beloved by beauty enthusiasts and professionals alike. From YouTube star Mae Layug’s GRWM Cosmetics to celebrity makeup artist Mikka Marcaida’s Faboulash, ahead we list down brands to acquaint yourself with and support.

US-trained celebrity makeup artist Mikka Marcaida is best known for her signature natural beauty looks—with clientele like Anne Curtis, Kylie Verzosa and Yassi Pressman. Faboulash was created because she couldn’t find the perfect lightweight, comfortable lashes that complement her style. These easy-to-apply lashes are handcrafted to perfection and highly recommended, even for lash newbies (guilty as charged!) who feel intimidated by this step.

GRWM Cosmetics

Behind TikTok-favorite GRWM Cosmetics is YouTube star, content creator and freshly minted entrepreneur Mae Layug. It’s beauty on your own terms! The inclusive brand aims to empower Filipinos to build their own standard of beauty through realistic and relatable content.

Kayu Beauty

Kayu Beauty’s flagship collection, the Kayu Kiss Soft Matte Moisturizing Lipstick, is inspired by the Filipina’s diverse range of skin tones and our tropical climate (see our summer beauty starter pack here). Created by the TikTok beauty trinity—a professional makeup artist, a makeup connoisseur and an everyday makeup consumer—it’s the classic bullet lipstick redefined.
