About us

Beautonomy is a London based beauty e-commerce business. We specialise in custom eyeshadow palettes and helping beauty creators earn money. And have recently received investment to expand the business. This means we are now looking for exceptional people to join our team.

Cultivating and maintaining a beauty community because human connection, and forming relationships around ideas, experiences and activities is integral to most peoples’ happiness.

Giving people the space and tools they need to express their creativity in beauty, because imagination and unique ideas add value to the world.
