Well hello there! Let’s chat about .. MAKEUP!
If you know anything about me, you know how obsessed I am with makeup.
When I started transitioning to cleaner, toxic free products this year, it was overwhelming. Some things like skincare and haircare I knew would be easy, but makeup?! I loved my makeup. Some [negative] thoughts that ran through my head were:
- Toxin free makeup won’t work as well as my makeup now
- It’s going to be way more expensive
- I don’t even know where to buy natural makeup
- What natural makeup companies are there?! Does Burts Bees count?!
- Ok maybe I’ll just stick to keeping everything but my makeup clean. It’s just my face anyway.
In typical Courtney fashion, I found every excuse to not transition my makeup.
So I sucked it up, started researching, and slowly ditched and switched my makeup. It probably took me at least 3-4 months. When I ran out of a product, I just replaced it with something toxin free. And guess what?! It wasn’t more expensive. I realized I was paying the same for my toxic makeup than my non toxic. So many of you have been asking what makeup products I use so..
Check out the video below to see my makeup routine (links to products I used are in the YouTube description and below):
My makeup is 95% toxin-free, but you’ll see in the video there’s a few products I haven’t switched out yet. I can’t stress this enough: It’s a gradual process!
As always, please let me know any products you’ve used and loved and recommend!!!
