    What I learned during a year of using exclusively Clean Beauty

    I started #cleanstreak at the end of January 2019 after a major makeup and skincare declutter. For those of you just tuning in, post-declutter I made a goal to only repurchase, pursue and use clean skincare, makeup and haircare products. Side Note: I did continue to use and finish up any viable not-so-clean things I already had <<wastage benefits no one>>, but once I started accumulating amazing, effective clean beauty products, I didn’t find myself missing what I used before (for the most part…I’m getting there). I’ll start off by saying that the beauty industry has changed a lot since I started watching YouTube beauty gurus back in 2008. It’s…

    Battle of the *Clean* Liquid Eyeliners

    By now, I’m sure you all know that I’m a sucker for a liquid winged liner. It’s my daily go-to! So you can imagine how crushed I was when I first started #cleanstreak a year ago and struggled to find a clean eyeliner option, let alone THE perfect liquid liner that I could use on a daily basis. As releases began to trickle out over the course of 2019, I scooped up every option I could and immediately began putting them to the test. Several months later, I am happy to share my thoughts with you guys! Now, before I share my pros/cons for each eye liner, here are my…

    Fresh Face of Clean Beauty

    While I’ve been into clean skincare for several years now, I really only started to dive into the world of clean makeup earlier this year. My visit to Follain Dallas really sparked my interest; I wasn’t totally sold on the idea of shopping for clean makeup online until I had a chance to really play with the product in person. Pittsburgh is still the best city in the world šŸ˜› , but we don’t always have the latest and greatest in terms of natural beauty, so whenever I’m in an area that does, I’m all over it! I’ve finally amassed enough of a collection where I was able to do…

    Vacation Glam

    Last week I shared the contents of my travel makeup bag on Instagram Stories (handle ‘bittafab’ – you can check the stories out in my highlights under Makeup) and while I pretty much brought everything but the kitchen sink, I thought it would be helpful to share the makeup that I actual did use and how! During the day when we were swimming, shopping or just lounging, I kept my makeup pretty simple and minimal: Tinted SPF: This was my only base product and although these have limited coverage, they do help to even the complexion a bit. I packed both the Drunk Elephant Umbra TinteĀ and the Arbonne Soft Focus…
