Everyday Makeup Essentials


It took a long time for me to put together enough natural, clean products to have a full face everyday.

There’s a bit more trial and error and research that goes into buying more natural cosmetics. There’s very minimal regulation with what can be sold so we have to do a bit of our own legwork when it comes to cosmetics to make sure we’re not being dubbed by marketing and the ingredients are potentially harmful. Without compromising efficiency of the product, I took my time putting together products that had high quality ingredients and performed well. I like to check Environmental Working Group’s Skindeep database for a little more insight into ingredients in products. You can enter in the name of your product and see how toxic it really is so it’s super handy.

How clean (or toxic) are your cosmetics? Check the EWG database to see by clicking here.

I finally feel like I have enough products worthy of sharing for any of you currently going through a similar transition or are just curious and maybe wanting something new!

My favourite shop to pick up new cosmetics and skincare is Eco Diva Beauty. Click here to check them out!  

I’m still figuring this whole video thing out, but in the meantime, enjoy!
