When it comes to beauty, one size rarely fits all; everyone’s makeup, hair and skin care needs are unique, and the products we use should reflect that. So it only makes sense that more and more beauty brands are starting to offer personalized products that are tailor-made for the consumer.
From a foundation that’s a perfect match for your skin to a serum that will tackle your specific skin woes, we’ve rounded up five beauty brands that are killing it at the customization game. Read on below!
1. BITE BEAUTY
Canadian brand Bite Beauty was one of the first brands to master the concept of customized beauty with their Bite Beauty Lip Labs. Here you get to create your own custom lipstick by selecting the pigment, picking a finish (sheer, matte etc.), and then choosing a scent!
Bite Beauty Lip Lab, $55-$150, 678 Queen St W, Toronto
At select Nordstrom stores, Lancôme offers the opportunity for customers to create their own custom shade of their popular Le Teint Particulier foundation. After using a special scanning device to gather data on your skin, they can then whip up the foundation in your exact tone and adjust the coverage and hydration levels to meet your needs.

3. FUNCTION OF BEAUTY
Created by MIT engineers and data scientists, Function of Beauty allows you to create your own shampoos and conditioners based on your individual hair care needs. Simply take the online hair quiz, which asks questions about the current state of your hair and your top five hair goals. You can then choose your product’s size, colour, and fragrance, and even have your name printed on the bottle!

5. COVER FX
A shift in seasons usually means we need to splurge for a new foundation shade due to change in skin tone – however, what if you could adjust your favourite foundation to match your skin all year long? Cover FX’s Custom Cover Drops contain drops of pure pigment that are meant to be mixed in with your favourite liquid beauty products to achieve your ideal shade and coverage.
