Hello!! I woke up excessively early this morning (very, very rarely happens) and don’t
really know what to do with myself… I went for a run (again, not normal) on the beach, and now have a lot of time before everyone else wakes up, so I thought I would let youall know about The Plan.
Having done a few ethical reviews of makeup brands I’ve been using, I now have more of an idea about how I’m going to continue:
- I am going to continue reviewing the brands I regularly use. Having done five (Glossier, MAC, Lime Crime, The Ordinary, Kat von D) I am just under halfway through, with brands such as Too Faced, Maybelline, NYX, Urban Decay, Fenty and Charlotte Tilbury left.
- I’ve then got to find replacements for the makeup I decide to not use. I’m really looking forward to this part; I am going to focus on finding smaller, independent brands, and will of course write about any and all that I try. If you know about anything that fits this description (obviously cruelty-free and vegan too) please recommend!! I love interesting packaging (especially when its environmentally friendly), and eyeshadow palettes are my weakness (I’ve already got this Juvia Palace palette on my wishlist!!).
- As part of finding new makeup I am planning to subscribe to a beauty box. I haven’t looked into this much yet, but have stumbled upon two boxes (The Cruelty Free Beauty Box and Pip Box) that focus on being cruelty-free, as well as discovering that Evanna Lynch (a.k.a Luna Lovegood) is planning on starting one. What could be better? Once I’ve subscribed, I’ll post each month/quarter (depending on which I choose) about what the boxes contain!!
- After I’ve sorted out my makeup I think I will move onto the rest of my bathroom… but that’s for later. One thing at a time.
I’ve also worked out how I am going to phase in and out the ethical/non-ethical brands. As a student, I can’t afford to just throw away and immediately replace products I normally use daily. Instead I will continue to use it, until finished, and then buy something new!! I’m also thinking of doing some Empties posts, so you’ll know when I’ve fully finished with a brand.
And that’s The Plan. If you have any ideas/tips/recommendations please do let me know by commenting or messaging me!!
