The start of a new year generally marks a time for growth and implementing positive changes, no matter how great or small. In a bid to refocus on goals and growing into my best self, it’s also a time when I tend to overhaul my makeup bag and revise my daily makeup routine. Ever since wearing masks and homeworking became a thing, I’ve become more mindful of what goes on my skin. Naturally, I’ve been looking into clean beauty brands to experiment with and replace my everyday makeup staples. Here are the beauty products I love and will continue using right into Spring.
If you don’t like wearing a full-on foundation every day, skin tints are most likely ideal for you. Skin tints are the newest formulations on the shelves designed to offer hydrating coverage that feels and looks like a second skin. Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint harnesses the benefits of hyaluronic acid, squalane, and niacinamide to keep skin smooth, plump, and free of redness. You’ll get sheer coverage that’s rich and pigmented enough to cover everything, from dark circles to uneven tone and texture.
Vapour’s Archetype quad is a daily eyeshadow palette with foolproof neutrals that include silky matte, satin, and pearl finishes. The colors are blendable, long-wearing, and contain rich mineral pigments, as well as soothing amino acids. A little goes a long way with this product, so apply the colours lightly for best results. There are four quads to choose from, ranging from classic neutrals to glam metallics.
Honest Beauty Liquid Eyeliner is packed with precious, plant-derived ingredients to care for skin while emphasizing the eyes. It comes with a short, flexible tip that offers optimal control for creating cat-eye and graphic looks. It’s long-lasting, won’t flake, and smudge-proof for up to 8 hours.
Living Nature’s Lip Hydrator performs like an overnight balm to condition dry or chapped lips. This natural, soothing lip balm contains Manuka Honey, plus nourishing butters and oils, to deeply hydrate and condition lips. With no greasy texture, it’s your lip primer and conditioner in one.
This non-toxic, nourishing lip gloss conditions lips using antioxidant-rich ingredients. The formula glides on smooth with calming botanicals like sunflower, chamomile, and aloe. This lip gloss delivers a wash of luminous, sheer colour in a hydrating formula that protects lips just like a balm – available in 4 irresistible shades.
