This year, I started to be a little more conscious about my choices when it comes to what makeup I’m using (here are some of my posts about choosing safe cosmetics and body products: shampoos, winter skin cream, henna hair coloring, and makeup primer). I have not made a full switch-over to healthier cosmetics. Not even close, if I’m being honest. I am very attached, for example, to my Dior Mascara. But on the other hand, I adore using Burt’s Bees lip gloss. So right now, I’ve got a real mixed bag of products on my face.
I’ve drunk the kool-aid and definitely feel that I “need” makeup, so I’m not about to get into gender politics here. I wear makeup, I’m not going to stop wearing makeup. So it’s a matter of which cosmetics I will choose to buy and where to find safe cosmetics.
