One of my personal goals is to have a healthier and more eco-friendly lifestyle.
I’m taking steps here and there, but my makeup collection is probably one of the most chemically toxic aspects of my life (aside from my car, but that’s another story). So one dreary afternooon, I made the jump to Bare Escentuals.
For the past several years, I’ve been a liquid and cream foundation girl, but fairly low-maintenance with makeup overall. I dabbled a bit with e.l.f. minerals but it was too messy. Fast forward to the present, I’m ready to try mineral foundation again.
It’s been two weeks and I’m still getting used to it…all this swirling, buffing, tapping…it takes some finesse to get it to look just right. With Fairly Light and Warm Rose as my foundation and blush color respectively, I’m getting a creamy matte finish with a subtle, healthy glow. My skin is balancing out so it’s not too dry and not too oily, which makes it kind of perfect for mineral makeup. I follow Jen, Eki, and MakeupForLife for cosmetic advice since I’m obviously not a makeup artist or guru.
Other products I’m using is Tarte vitamin infused lipstick, L’Occitane shea butter hand cream, and Ulta automatic eye liner. As each item wears out, I hope to replace them with better and healthier versions but I haven’t found any HG (Holy Grail) items yet.
I’d love to know, where do you look for makeup advice and what are your favorite HG makeup products?
