Beauty: Ethical, Sustainable, plastic-free
This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while but more increasingly recently as I’ve been getting into doing my make up.
I read something recently that really hit home regarding make up. It went something along the lines of ‘Make up sinks in so anything you put into your skin will leak into your skin and do you really want harsh chemicals or do you even know what your make up contains?’ And thinking about I don’t really know what chemicals I’m even putting on my face which is just crazy!
In the past I’ve looked into sustainable and Ethical skincare and made some great changes which also helped my skin a lot. But now I want to make changes within my make up collection, so as my makeup begins to run out I’ll be making some swaps. For me I want my make up to be cruelty free, which has been sourced and made sustainably and the packaging needs to be at least reduced in plastic or recyclable. Below I’ve listed what I currently use on my face and what I’m looking to switch in when the products run out. Hopefully this will help any of you who are also thinking of making some changes!

Swap to - So I need a bit of help with this one. A few brands do have eyeshadows in single and you can buy them plus a palette to create your own like Zao, however that seems to be working out quite expensive so if you know any great sustainable/ethical make up palettes send them my way!
