Etsy is the go-to destination for finding amazing hand-crafted gifts and novelties. But did you know they actually have a huge selection of beauty and bath products? Most of the shops feature handmade, high quality skincare and makeup. In fact, some custom made creations on Etsy achieve internet fame (like the famous rainbow highlighter) and can barely stay in stock. Other brands start on Etsy and make their way to big stores like Sephora and Anthropologie. Check out the slideshow to see the best beauty buys you can find on Etsy.
Herbivore Botanicals is one of the huge success stories that sprouted from Etsy. The brand was created by a husband wife duo in an effort to bring consumers safe and effective skincare products. These days, you can find their products in stores like Sephora and Nordstrom. Fans of the brand claim the Lapis Facial Oil ($72) changed the state of their skin by reducing redness and clearing up their complexions. Their latest Moon Fruit night treatment deeply resurfaces and hydrates your skin while you sleep.

From Ultra Chrome to Neon, you won't be disappointed in this hand-crafted polish.
The nail polish pictured is MEGA ($10), which is one of their best-selling shades.
Bitter Lace Beauty
Bitter Lace Beauty gained online fame with the original Rainbow Highlighter. The internet freaked out about the handmade highlighter that creates a rainbow effect when applied to your skin.
