Top 10 Bright Future Beauty Brands to Watch


Top 10 Bright Future Beauty Brands to Watch

What is the Bright Future Beauty Brand Archetype?

The Bright Future Beauty Brand Archetype is all about fun, colorful brands with very high quality formulations that on top of that actually do not compromise when it comes to sustainability. Most of the brands included in this brand type use plastic free packaging for most of their products, if not all of them! Sustainability doesn't have to be plain cardboard, brushed silver aluminum and lavender scents. These brands offer a sustainable option that can be even more fun than the regular kind. In this post I highlight 10 of the brands featured in my "Bright Future Beauty Brand Archetype Report 2023". This report is part of a series of reports exploring various Beauty Brand Archetypes. I created these reports after constantly being asked about what the current trends in Beauty are, you can't really give a clear answer since trends are different depending on what kind of brands we're talking about. So I've created different brand types to enable me to give more specific and tailored answers to this question.
