Spring is right around the corner and there’s no better time to clean out your makeup bag and start fresh. It’s time to refresh your routine with a hint of green! Get rid of all those old, expired, or broken makeup products and replace them with eco-friendly alternatives. Making the switch to earth friendly cosmetics that use natural ingredients has never been easier, and you won’t have to compromise on quality.
Greening your makeup bag starts with the tools you use to apply your makeup: your makeup brushes! Switch to our brushes and we know you’ll love them; they’re made with sustainable bamboo, recycled aluminum, and cruelty free bristles. (Extra bonus? They’re super affordable). For on the go beauty, we like our new Touch Up Set. Once you’ve picked out your favorite makeup brush set, it’s time to upgrade your foundation and powders. We like Organic Wear by Physician’s Formula or Tarte’s new Amazonian Clay collection. On your cheeks and lips opt for a two in one like Jane Iredale Just Kissed, a lip and cheek stain in one made with all natural ingredients like yummy avocado and olive butter. For your eyes, a simple palette of neutrals is the way to go; try Josie Maran for their non-toxic, paraben, and fragrance free line.
Finally, pop all the new goodies into an Earth inspired, eco-bag like our pretty in pink Cosmetic Bag by Alicia Silverstone. It’s big enough to hold all your favorites, made with natural hemp, natural cotton, and a PET lining (which means it’s fully recyclable).
