I’m happy I’m able to make a post like this. I was never really someone who wanted to try all the latest things in beauty. When I read beauty articles I’m always intrigued by what someone has repurchased for years and can never find anything better to replace it. I feel like those years accumulated are much more of a trophy than finding the next greatest thing.Read More »
Is this a lot of crap to haul with you just to work? I don’t know at this point. Commuting is hard, and the thing is I always feel like I’m a mess (hence the constant carrying of first aid stuff) and with some time before work I might as well use the makeup I have you know? Here’s what I’ve got:
Over the years my preference for foundation has crept down from mask-like high coverage to a more medium and sometimes sheer look. In the summer, especially when it feels like my skin is melting off, the last thing I want to do before going out is put on thick foundation. Of all makeup categories to search for within cruelty free brands, I thought foundation would be pretty simple, but that is not the case.
I know, I know. Chapstick, probably the most boring thing in the world. But here’s the thing, it’s not really boring because it’s not only essential, but everyone has there one tried and true pick. The one that they buy in a two pack if they can and can’t leave the house without. The one that makes you curse if you lose it.
At the start of my switch to cruelty free beauty products, nail polishes were an even bigger hit to my heart than makeup. I have an honestly unnecessary large collection of nail polish, and it was hard to face the fact that the majority of the brands I was using I wouldn’t be able to buy again. It took some time, but once you get past the big mainstream brands there are some great smaller and even indie brands that perform and look fun. Here are some brands that are not so hard to find for every price range from budget buys to a splurge.
