Ultimate Cruelty-free and Vegan Mascara Guide

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays with family and friends; eating great food and creating new memories. With that said, as the new year is approaching, it is time to educate you all on mascara. Now, mascaras are a great way to create definition, volume, and length without the use of faux lashes. But not all wands are created equal. 

I have created a handy guide to help you pick the right mascara for the occasion.

Highlighters Oily_Normal

What are highlighters?

Highlighters are a product, along with contouring, that allows the wearer to add depth and dimension to the face. It gives the skin a “dewy” look, if applied correctly. If applied, incorrectly (i.e  applied in areas of redness), highlighters can draw attention to these problem areas. So please!

Prime Time: Primers For Your Skin Type

Primers for Skin Type

  • Normal Skin: Personally, I used this  primer for a while. However, I found it works better for normal to dry skin types. It did not reduce the appearance of oil or matte me, but it was very moisturizing and concealed my pores. With 7 ingredients listed, Reviva Lab’s Makeup Primer is a great choice!
  • Oily or Combination Skin: Made with Kaolin clay, a well-known natural substance to help acne-prone and oily skin, Mineral Fusion’s Mattifying Primer will do the trick of matting you and controlling the appearance of oil throughout the day.
  • Dry Skin: Emani’s Perfect 10 Primer Serum is cream-based primer made with 10 different plant extracts that not only give you a dose of antioxidants but also calms and moisturizes dry skin.
  • Sensitive Skin: Cover FX is considered one of the best brands out there for people with normal-to-high sensitive skin. Removing harsh chemicals and dyes, Cover FX produced this amazing product: The Calming Primer. It is dermalogically designed to be worn by people with sensitive skin types, even individuals with Rosacea.
