I would like to introduce myself and my blog. Primarily I am attracted to the world of makeup because I like to dress things up. I love color, texture, personality, and detail. But along with my love for makeup, I also have a passion for living a natural lifestyle. This means making my own soaps and cleaning products, eating organic whole foods, and trying to live a more chemical free life. And so I try to incorporate this into my makeup kit.
I offer vegan options in my makeup kit and am always aware of ingredients in the products I use. But because I work in special fx as well as beauty, finding vegan products is difficult. I have a lot of opinions on makeup but I think the most important thing is being a conscious consumer.
I would like to share some of my favorite vegan products and/or natural products:
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics- I’m in love with the Lip Tars from this company. They apply like a lip gloss and have a finish like lipstick. Amazing! http://www.occmakeup.com/
Urban Decay- My favorite for personal and professional use. The Eyeshadow Primer Potion, the eyeshadows, 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils, and Lip Envy lipstain are the best. Plus, they have all vegan items marked with a purple paw. Go Urban! http://www.urbandecay.com/vegan.cfm
Beauty Without Cruelty- It is a great concept and I use items like the mascara which are hard to find in vegan options. http://www.beautywithoutcruelty.com/
Tarte- I recently discovered that Tarte has a spot on the website dedicated to vegan products. They don’t have many but I want them all! http://tartecosmetics.com/tarte-shop-vegan-cosmetics
Blinc- Tube Technology mascara! http://www.blincinc.com/#home
Sugarpill- Holy cow, check out that pigment! http://www.sugarpillshop.com/
Yaby- A makeup artist fave are the eyeshadows which are vegan! http://www.yabycosmetics.com/
