    Cheeky Clean Cream Blush

    I didn’t think that I’d be a fan of Beautycounter’s new Cheeky Clean Cream Blushes… but WOW they’ve exceeded my expectations! The Cheeky Clean Cream Blushes are versatile, multitasking, and mistake-proof. Use it on your cheeks and (bonus!) use it on your lips too! Go with a sheer flush or build to a bold pop of color, thanks to lush pigments and skin-loving ingredients like squalane. What does squalane do? It provides a silky, luxurious texture so color goes on dewy—not greasy—for supple-looking skin, and jojoba esters help moisturize, soothe, and soften. A few answers to some questions that I’m often asked about these cream blushes: IS CHEEKY CLEAN CREAM…

    What Does a Nontoxic + High Performing Makeup Bag Look Like?

    The fact that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 40 years ago it was 1 in 20 is hard to take in. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and leukemia when I was younger and it has really made a long lasting impact on me. Not only do I want to make sure that I reduce my toxic load in all the ways I can, I strive to help others understand why it matters so much about the makeup products we use on our skin. We are applying things to our body that absorb into our bloodstream through the surface of our skin. Makeup,…

    Say goodbye to Summer: how to transition your beauty products to Fall!

    With the seasons changing, it’s time to break out the sweaters, boots, pumpkins. It’s also time to take inventory of summer makeup and skincare and transition into fall colors and products for more hydration.
