Clean Beauty: Makeup Edition

Makeup... I've been obsessed since high school. And when I say obsessed, I mean I was spending my part-time, after school job pay cheques on high end makeup brands - MAC, Smashbox, Clinique. I had expensive taste from an early start. 

Over the years my expensive taste hasn't gone away, however, I've simplified my makeup routine and I've been on the hunt for THE perfect foundation and concealer since it's always been my staple to help even out my skin tone.

Funny how I found my perfect foundation and concealer in a Clean Beauty company - Beautycounter!

When I signed up to be a Beautycounter consultant, I ordered their Flawless in Five set which is 6 products that give you a flawless look in 5 minutes. I fell in love with their Skin Twin foundation RIGHT AWAY. So, it's lightweight but it covers! It's buildable too so I can use a bit more when I have a breakout or very little when my skin is looking very clear. But either way, it feels light! It goes on like a dream too and after 10 hours, my skin still looks flawless.

Then about a month later they released a new concealer - The Creamy Concealer. It reminds me of another high end concealer I was using before switching to cleaner makeup. It's SO good. It's just as hydrating as the foundation and the coverage is incredible. 

Even if I wasn't working for Beautycounter, or looking for clean products, I would stick with this foundation and concealer combo. It's good for my skin, lasts all day long even while chasing a toddler, and has amazing lightweight coverage!

I wanted to share a few of my favourite makeup items that I'm obsessed with:

1. Satin Powder Blush - super pigmented and goes on so soft
2. Beyond Gloss - so hydrating and not sticky or tacky, plus it smells like vanilla
3. Skin Twin Foundation - great lightweight coverage and hydrating ingredient to plump skin
4. Skin Twin Creamy Concealer - amazing coverage, plus has wrinkle-fighting ingredient

All of these items, plus a swipe of mascara (I still haven't found a clean one that I LOVE), and I'm set for the day!

Have you switched to cleaner makeup? Do you have any favourites?
