Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has announced the launch of her own brand of beauty products this week.

She becomes the latest celebrity to break into beauty after a flurry of famous faces have created their own lines in recent months.

Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian West and most recently Selena Gomez, are just a few currently circulating in the beauty arena.

However, the 15-year-old British actress could be the youngest to take on the challenge, rivalling Kylie Jenner who founded her billion dollar brand Kylie Cosmetics when she was 18.

Brown’s vegan range, which took two years to develop, is named after her great-grandmother Florence and features a collection of colour cosmetics and skin care products.

This includes its Zero Chill Face Mist, Swimming Under the Eye Gel Pads and Like a Light Skin Tint.

To create the line, she took inspiration from her own make-up experiences at a young age.

She told WWD she wanted to enter the beauty sector because there was a gap in the market for young consumers.

“I could never find anything that I liked to put on my face and it felt good.

“There are multiple different products I’ve put on that weren’t good for me.

“Some of those were anti-ageing, and I was ten years old.”

The Florence By Mills products are said to be suitable for all skin types, are priced from £10 to £28 and will be available online and at Boots stores.
