RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up Concealer/Foundation
Resolution: I will be more eco-conscious.
If your New Year's resolution involves living more sustainably in all aspects of your life (including being a more eco-conscious beauty consumer), knowing which products are clean is a first step. Start by reading the labels and educating yourself on brands' sustainability practices, or look to others who are well-versed in green beauty for their tips.
For makeup, making a greener swap for something you wear all the time is a good start, and there are several Sephora brands like RMS Beauty and Ilia to check out. If you don't leave home without foundation, look into this RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up Concealer/Foundation ($36) or, if mascara's your go-to, why not pick up the popular Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara ($13-$28) when your current tube runs out?
Then, if you're looking to find clean skin care, Drunk Elephant and its vegan Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer ($68) will keep you hydrated, and products from Primera — like this Miracle Seed Essence ($58) — will safely protect your skin without sulfates, parabens, or formaldehyde.
Or when it's hair care that's a concern, brands like Briogeo and Together Beauty have plenty of alternatives that are also full of active natural ingredients like the scalp-soothing Briogeo B. Well Organic + Australian 100% Tea Tree Oil ($32) or the 99 percent natural, mongongo-oil-powered Together Beauty Crown + Glory Smoothing Mask ($28).
