Hi everyone, it’s definitely been a while since I’ve been on here to talk to you guys, but I was cleaning my room the other day and thought that it would be a good time during spring break to also clean out my makeup. I have been fortunate to have a mom who loves makeup and will give me products she does not use very often (eyeshadows and blushes only!) and I will have these products given to me without owing any money. I started to build a makeup bag with both drug store and high end products and I love the balance it brings to my beauty routine.
I began investing in Kat Von D makeup products and I got hooked! I now have her tattoo liner and a powdered foundation. I’ve always wanted to have a product from her beauty line and my mom was nice enough to purchase these items for me. The eyeliner is hands down the best eyeliner I’ve ever tried and it’s cruelty free. I had never tried powdered foundation before and the shade Medium 53 matched me perfectly! I began doing research on cruelty free makeup brands and products after the way 2 cruelty free products worked so well for me. I am going to be de-cluttering my makeup bag tomorrow and tossing whatever is old or is not cruelty free or vegan friendly.
Disclaimer: no I am not going vegan and in this blog, I am 110% entitled to my own opinions on this blog so here is my point of view…
While I am not going to go vegan in my diet, I want to slowly but surely use nothing but vegan friendly and cruelty free cosmetics because I know for a fact that we don’t truly need makeup to survive. Animal testing breaks my heart and simply isn’t right. It’s happening in China still and the thought make me sick. I will not wear makeup that has a dark past. Even if that past has changed here in America.
I started off this journey with investing in Kat Von D products and I want to continue until all cosmetic products in my bag meet the standards of no animal testing whatsoever. Wish me luck and comment below which vegan friendly or cruelty free products you like to use! I am still on the hunt for the perfect lengthening mascara so if you have any recommendations, let me know!
On a lighter note, watch my latest YouTube video! I did a video on How To Style Shorts and uploaded that on my channel this morning. Thank you for reading everything if you made it this far and listening to me. Wish me luck on my beauty journey and stay stylish!
