Two things that I look for in a product are the cause they support as well as cruelty free. My favorite products tend to accentuate our natural beauty! Aveda products have been around for a while now, but I was just introduced to this mineral dual foundation by my friend and stylist Jade Brown at Stem Hair and Body Salon.

Jade used this foundation in “Twig” on me and I absolutely loved it! It provides great coverage yet isn’t to heavy.  Foundation can be applied dry or wet with a blender sponge. I love that Aveda products are natural and organic  ranging from skin care to hair care. They are also cruelty free! You can purchase Aveda products at a salon near you that carries them or online at Aveda.


I discovered this next beauty company Thrive Causemetics on social media.  I love what this company stands for and their quality beauty products. Thrive was founded by Karissa Bodnar who lost her dear friend Kristy to cancer at just 24 years old. Her friend Kristy inspired Karissa to start Thrive Causemetics which mission is “Beauty with a Purpose: for every product purchased they donate one to empower a woman thriving through cancer or domestic violence.” I purchased the Brilliant Eye Brightener in Rose Gold Shimmer for $24 on their website at Thrive Causemetics.

The brilliant eye brightener is definitely one of my favorite everyday staples. It’s great if you need a little eye lift after a long night or no sleep. I use it under my brow bone and in the crease of my eye for a little lift.  It definitely whitens my eyes and gives me that well rested look! This company is also cruelty and toxin free! I can’t wait to try their “Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner” next! Stay tuned!
