Did you know that it only takes up for 26 seconds for your skin to absorb products? That can be really scary if you do not know what is in your products, and ultimately going into your body. Many of us want to opt in for the more expensive, instagram worthy products, but they don't have to be expensive to be affective. A great local Victoria BC brand called Elate Cosmetics is changing the makeup game. With a great range of all natural, non-toxic, sustainable and cruelty free options, you can customize your own "Capsule" of products perfectly curated to your skin tone. They have bamboo packaging and refill options to cut down your product waste, and one of my favourite things is their pressed powder packaging, which is made of seed paper that you can plant in your garden, creating beautiful herbs and wildflowers depending on the season.
Another great brand I love to use would be Tarte Cosmetics. Its a staple in any high quality makeup kit, and perfect for the everyday make up lover. Their pressed powders including eye shadows, blushes and bronzers include vanilla extracts for a sweet smelling application, with long staying power and a beautiful clay base great for dehydrated and sensitive skin types.
