Hello, Beauties!

I have a confession to make. Even though I run a beauty blog I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup.

I even have some friends that don’t like wearing makeup at all ever. However, the older we get the more it becomes necessary to wear some makeup.

Open Letter to the Cosmetics Industry: Go Natural!

Dear Big Beauty,

I can remember the day I purchased my very first makeup products.  I went to my local drugstore and purchased a Covergirl blush, foundation, and pressed powder, Maybelline Mascara, and L’Oreal Lipstick.  I was so excited to put them on.  I felt so pretty and glamorous.  I also remember the day I broke up with these brands and a few others.

The more I used your drug store and name brand makeup, skin care, and body care the worse my skin got and the worse I felt physically.  For at least 10 years I suffered from acne, skin and scalp irritation, chronic sinus infections and more.

Once I discovered that my beloved products contained harmful chemical ingredients that I was slathering on my body each day and I stopped using them…  Voila!  No more acne, irritation or sinus infections.
