Addison Rae Easterling, better known as Addison Rae on TikTok, is one of the most-followed people on the short-form mobile video app and appeals to Gen Z with her choreographed dances and lip-syncs, and the TikTok star is now launching a new clean beauty brand called ITEM Beauty. Madeby Collective partnered with Addison Rae on the new brand, which shares dermatologist-tested solutions and a mission to redefine beauty norms by supporting confidence, self-love and self-expression.

ITEM Beauty specifically speaks to Gen Z consumers with free-from products like the Lash Snack lengthening mascara, the Lid Glaze hydrating jelly eyeshadow and the Cheek Money bronzer duo, all of which embrace "bold, fuss-free packaging and unexpected product forms."
