Do you love all the party looks you’re seeing on social media? You know the ones with loads of glitter and a bold pop of red lipstick? Or perhaps you’re coveting the unreal shine from a heavy hand of highlighter or a dramatic kohl cat eye?
Only, you hate that glitter is a microplastic polluting our waterways, and that those bold colors, highlighters and 18-hour eyeliners are filled with synthetic pigments, talc and petrochemicals.
Simple idea: Buy green holiday makeup!
Leveling-up your makeup look doesn’t mean you have to turn to traditional makeup. Whatever the party inspo look, you can recreate it with clean makeup. Don’t let your fellow ‘grammers have all the fun. I’ve found the prettiest party makeup products so you can focus on your gift list.
Clove + Hallow Lip Crème are some of the boldest and beautiful.
