Eco Friendly Lipsticks For The Perfect Pop Of Color
Beauty means different things to all of us and we all have distinct regimes that help us feel great inside and out. Some of us find beauty when walking in nature, or admiring a pretty painting, for others beauty comes from having a good hair day or wearing the right makeup. In the words of Gwyneth Paltrow, ‘Beauty, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.’ Frankly, it’s a fair point! But what about wearing eco-friendly lipsticks that not only make us feel beautiful, but are also produced with respect to environmental issues? Talk about a win-win beauty situation!
Most of us know that not all lipstick or makeup brands choose to adopt earth-friendly practices. But in today’s world, with all the environmental problems we are facing, it’s important that we buy responsibly, and support the beauty brands who put the planet first. If you are looking for some earth-kind and natural lipstick choices, maybe these following suggestions will inspire you.
