Beauty, for good. – Cruelty-free beauty for beauties over (and under) 30
I’ve been talking about starting this blog for a while now, and here it finally is! My goal is to share some of the info I’ve gathered over the course of a disturbing amount of time (and $) thinking about and playing with makeup, with ladies who are dealing with the particular challenges of 30 skin…. and to do my small part to advocate for beauty that does not come with the expense of..
Do you remember when they used to have some touchy feely episode of a sitcom or drama and they’d hype it as a ‘special episode’? I always thought that was so sappy, but now, here I am doing it myself! As you may know, one of the reasons I first got involved with the cruelty-free […]
Ok, so as I said in volume 1, I tackled eye primers first because there’s a lot less variety vis a vis purpose. As complicated as it is, I must say I prefer using primers for lasting power, rather than setting sprays. I just always feel like I’m putting hair spray on my face… which […]
Welcome to another reader-requested post, thank you, dear reader! The universe of primers has exploded in recent years, so I thought I’d divide our discussion into two topics, eye primers and face primers. I’m posting about eye primers first mostly because there’s much less decision making that goes into it for me. Basically, they’re a […]
So, in my last post, I shared some of my tried and true faves, my “golden oldies“. Today’s post features newer faves; products I’ve started using in the last 6 months or so. In some cases, they’re so good, I’m using techniques and shades I never would have before because I just couldn’t find products […]
I’ve been planning this post for what feels like ages, and every time I think about it, I think of that old Girl Scouts song, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold”. Does anyone else remember that song? I always assumed that the ‘old’ friends were the ‘gold’ […]
Another season, another reason (albeit a tenuous one) for buying new makeup! I bought these a bit ago from the Wet n’ Wild website, but I’m starting to hear people talk about being able to find them in their local drugstores. First things first, of course I had to add to my collection of drugstore […]
I’ve written once before about Viseart, “Viz-eee-art”, which I first tried at IMATS NYC last spring. Their Sultry Muse palette has some of my fave metallic shades! I think the hesitation for some people in diving into Viseart, which is known for exceptional quality, is two-fold. It’s spendy! Their 12-pan eyeshadow palettes retail for $80. […]
It seems the liquid lipstick craze has finally reached the drugstore. This could be an iffy proposition, as it’s difficult to get liquid lipsticks right, formula-wise. But Jordana has met the challenge with their Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Colors! Jordana seems to me to be the kid sister of Milani. Both brands are owned by […]
Let’s face it, 2016 was kind of a bummer. We lost some amazing artists. Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince… Princess Leia for cripes sake. We also lost some tried and true cruelty-free brands to buy-outs to parent companies that test on animals. It cosmetics, BECCA, Too Faced, and the one that hit me the hardest, Seventh […]
Lately, the weather hasn’t quite known what to do with itself here on the east coast of the U.S. But, it definitely has been getting colder, and I’ve definitely started noticing the associated skin sorrows. Whenever my skin starts to get irritated, my eyes and lips tend to take the brunt of it, so much […]
