Combine a graduate student budget with a consummate tomboy and what do you get? A minimal makeup routine!
My journey into green, minimal beauty started several years prior to my journey into a minimalist lifestyle, and it’s safe to say that I’ve tried an obscene amount of green beauty products. I found myself accumulating products that were horrible for my skin and body. Did you know that your skin absorbs up to 80% of what is put on it? That can be a terrifying statistic, particularly when you start thinking about all of the toxic and unpronounceable ingredients in our daily products.
Thankfully, I’ve been able to cull my makeup goodies to a curated set of healthy products that perform beautifully. My most recent coup de foudre has been with the brand W3ll People (pronounced well people). Offering clean products with high payoff, W3ll People is a fantastic starting point if you’re curious about green beauty. All of the products I own work well on my sensitive, combination skin. I also love that the brand caters to and looks beautiful on a wide spectrum of skin complexions.
Here’s what I currently have in my makeup bag:
My current favorite site to buy clean, green beauty is Carbon Beauty. With a bountiful selection of products, fast delivery, and great customer service, they are a small business that deserves to be checked out!
