Mondays are hard, but why not end it with a little beauty GIVEAWAY. I apologize for missing a few posts last week. This is my first attempt at blogmas and I am definitely learning a lot and taking notes on how to improve it for next year. I wanted to thank everyone who’s subscribed, liked, or commented on any of my posts. Thanks for sticking around and bearing with me as I figure out what works and what doesn’t. As I’ve said in previous posts, I am doing a bunch of GIVEAWAYS on the blog and on my Instagram to show my appreciation for you guys.
Make-up companies aren’t very transparent when it comes to ingredients and being cruelty-free. I always try to educate myself on which brands don’t test on animals and which brands use better ingredients because at the end of the day, I’m putting these things on my face and body, so I want to make sure that they are doing more good than bad. My two favorite cruelty-free brands are Tarte and Bite Beauty.
Tarte is known for being cruelty free. They advertise it on their packaging and pride themselves on using better and innovative, but eco-friendly ingredients (e.g. amazonian clay and maracuja oil). This Tarte Pro To Go Amazonian Clay Palette is perfect for the holidays and traveling. You can create a really nice bronze-y look or add a pop of color with the plum shades. These shadows are super soft, buttery, and pigmented and they well last a long night of partying. Plus, it’s really compact, so great for travel.
Next is Bite Beauty. I fell in love with Bite Beauty ever since they launched in Sephora stores a few years ago. They use food-grade ingredients so if you end up licking all your lipstick off throughout the night (and who doesn’t?), don’t worry, because the ingredients are “good enough to eat!” They also include antioxidants. They are natural and organic, but also super buttery and pigmented. I love the holiday set Bite releases every holiday season. I have every holiday set they have ever released and they have never disappointed.
