I don’t often wear makeup. Maybe I don’t have the patience, or maybe I just don’t like to spend the money on it. Since the invention of Sephora makeup prices are wild! $60 for mascara, no thank you.
But, occasionally I do try to pretty myself up and draw on my face.
Now, you might be thinking “Makeup?? What does this have to do with soil???”
Well, everything has to do with soil. Most makeup products come from MINERALS which is found in soil. Soil makes all of the plants and natural ingredients in makeup. The end product of makeup ends up in landfills and seeps into soil.
Everything has to do with soil. Everything comes from soil. Soil is makeup.
Here is a list of my favorite make up products & why.
- This Zuzu Luxe Mineral Blush is sooooo silky and applies easily. I like a more dewy look to makeup, and this blush gives me the perfect hydration my skin loves. Plus, it’s not overly priced. I can pick it up from my local health food store for about $17. ZuZu uses naturally sourced ingredients so you don’t have to worry about any harmful toxins on your face.
2. MILK Makeup is just a fabulous company!!! They focus on creating refillable makeup products. Who knows how many mascaras cartridges have been thrown into landfills. MILK is definitely a leader in the refillable makeup industry. I love this mascara because it NEVER clumps! Nothing worse than having a glob of goo sitting on top of your eyeball while you’re on a first date or interviewing. LOVE THIS & do you see the price? Only $15!
3. I’ve recently discovered the power of a lip TINT and its changed my world. No longer does my fiance have to worry about my plumper making his lips burn or leaving kissy marks on his cheek. This Lip AND Cheek stain from 100% Pure is glorious for everyday wear. Although honestly, I’ve never used it on my cheeks because it doesn’t blend the best. However, it is made from REAL fruit like pomegranates, beets, blueberries & more. No more guilt for licking my lips after applying.
4. For this final one, I honestly have no idea how to say the name. But it is truly amazing for fancy nights when I have to cover up my t-zone redness. Like MILK, this is a refillable makeup but from ZAO essence of nature. This foundation is easily buildable if you want more coverage, but also perfect for quick touchups. I love ZAO because of their commitment to organic and natural ingredients and their focus in social affairs. As a side – I also like their brushes!
Alrighty! Those are my main essentials. Blush, mascara, lip gloss & foundation. Hope you enjoyed & try some of these out!
