My Clean Makeup Routine

Clean Makeup Routine

Ever since my second unexplained pregnancy loss I’ve been on a mission to remove toxic products from my diet and lifestyle. Skincare and makeup play a huge part because there are ingredients that can impact your fertility. Today I thought I’d share what I’m using for makeup these days.

Skincare

I’ll do a separate post on this, but the last product I put on my face before starting on my makeup is Hynt Beauty Sunprep SPF25. It’s my AM moisturizer, my primer, and my sunscreen all in one. I always wear this, whether or not I wear makeup. It’s the only sunscreen that does not make my skin mad, something that has been a challenge over the years. It’s also very lightweight, which is perfect for an oily gal such as myself, and it absorbs quickly. Oh, and it smells REALLY good!

Foundation

I haven’t found a ride-or-die foundation yet, but I’ve tried a few that I like so far by Crunchi and 100% Pure. Currently, I am using 100% Pure Bamboo Blur Tinted Moisturizer. Don’t be fooled by the name – it is a foundation! It’s a mattifying formula based on their Bamboo Blur Powder (which I also use), and it’s the ideal product for someone whose makeup is usually running down their face by the end of the day. Seriously, this stuff lasts, and I love it!

Concealer

Under my eyes, I use the 100% Pure 2nd Skin Concealer. I really like how the formula goes on – not to liquidity and not too cakey. I also wanted something that was going to do more than just cover up, and since it’s made with olive squalane it’s keeping my eye area hydrated.

Powders

To set my makeup, I use the 100% Pure Bamboo Blur Powder. As mentioned, I’m an oily gal so this does a fantastic job of making sure I stay matte all day.

I’m not really big on bronzers because I like to keep my contouring more subtle. I’ve enjoyed using Zuzu Luxe’s Mosaic Illuminator in 1 to add a bit of color. And then for blush I’m currently using the Nu Evolution Pressed Blush in Cosmopolitan.

Eyes

Eyeshadow – It was hard to break up with my Urban Decay Naked palettes at first… that was until I discovered Lily Lolo’s palettes. Not only are they clean, but I actually like the color options a lot better. The pigmentation is much better too.

Eyeliner – I tend to go back-and-forth between pencil and liquid eyeliner. I’m currently using 100% Pure’s Liquid Eyeliner, but once I am done with it I am going to give some other brands a try. When I’m not in the mood for liquid I use Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Precision Eye Pencil. And to brighten my eyes, I use 100% Pure’s Bright Eyes Creamy Long Last Liner.

Mascara – I have two favorite mascaras so far, which is a pretty big deal considering I didn’t really have one before switching to clean beauty. My first favorite is the Fitglow Good Lash Mascara. It’s both a mascara and lengthening serum. My second favorite, which I am using right now, is by Lily Lolo.

Brows – I start with combing out my brows with a brush and then I’ll contour by adding a bit of HAN Skin Care Illuminator in Champagne underneath my lower brows. I absolutely LOVE the 100% Pure Green Tea Fiber Brow Builders! I will use this on my brows to give them a clean filled in color.

Lips

Since I subscribe to a handful of green beauty boxes, my lip product collection has grown without me really trying. I think I’ve only bought two or three lipsticks. Everything else has been part of those beauty boxes. Two of my favorites are 100% Pure Pomegranate Lipstick in Zinnia and  Fitglow Beauty Lip Colour Cream in Beach.
