consuming cosmetics…its complicated.
Welcome to the download on consuming cosmetics. Over the years, some of us have learned how to paint the mona lisa on our eyelids (not me), have perfected winged eyeliner (they’re sisters, not twins), have mastered 12 step skincare routines, or have realized most days we just want chapstick. No matter what your beauty routine, there is much more to learn about the products we buy aside from the healing benefits of aloe vera (but I’d read that article too). Thanks for checking out the download on creating cosmetics. Let’s have a look at how the industry impacts people and the planet.
you did it
Most downloads will probably have you feeling lots of feels, but I know when cute little furries are involved, the feels can be next level. My hope is not that you spiral down a hopeless hole of industry backed cruelty despair (guh) but that you feel empowered to pay closer to attention to brands working hard to innovate for an ethical future that helps us consume more consciously. Aka: Don’t stop wearing make-up, expressing yourself, caring for your skin - but pay attention to your gut when you know people are creating better options for you and planet. Below are my curated beauty favs and some accounts I recommend so you can keep downloading on the daily.
