Event Makeup Look
I'm not a makeup artist. In fact, I'm not great at makeup or hair at all. Yet, I figured I'd share a video of me doing my makeup for our daughter's baptism because I don't dress up much these days unless we have an event. This took me about 15 minutes.
I recorded it using timelapse on my phone and had no clue how quickly it would go - it's speedy! So I've included all the products I used below, plus a before and after picture.
I've also included the EWG.org rating of each product. This is a FANTASTIC resource if you are curious how your makeup products rank in terms of safe ingredients. A reason I use Beautycounter and have become a consultant with the company to support their mission: to get safer products in the hands of everyone. This tool from the Environment Working Group is a great resource to support that mission!
1. It! Cosmetics Brow Pencil
I've had this forever and will transition after it runs out! The old formulation ranked a 4 - boo! But there hasn't been an update with the new formula.
Ranks 2 for the old formulation. This is life saving!
4. Beautycounter Winter Dream Palette
No rank available for the palettes since they are a combination of products. This specific palette was available around the holidays last year and I LOVE it. They currently have a new palette out that people are raving about called the Ocean & Pacific Palette. I'll include rankings based on other generic Beautycounter components.
6. L'Oréal Eyeliner in Black
Ranks 1 and top ranking product on EWG. Since it is on my lips and I'm sure to ingest some, I was super happy to see these great reviews.
8. Tarte Mascara
Ranks 4, but this is not the exact mascara I have which was not available on the site.
EVEN BETTER...Beautycounter has just released a new "5-Minute Face" kit which includes:
3. Brow Pencil
... everything I used above!
Even though I'm cautious and care about the safety of my products, I still have 3 products I used for my "event" makeup that rank over a 2 (I try to find products ranked 1 or 2). With the new products Beautycounter just launched (Mascaras and 5-Minute Face), I'll be under 2 for everything!
