It's finally feeling (as much as it can feel) like Fall in L.A., but the colors of summer here are (for the most part) eternal. Succulents, sunshine, and sunsets. I was inspired by the neon, highlighter, "summery" colors of this succulent bud a couple weeks back. I also happened to like the way I did my make-up this day and snapped a picture (below). The color on my lips is ILIA's lipstick in Neon Angel, W3LL PEOPLE mascara, and TATA HARPER's lip & cheek tint. Since the holidays are right around the corner (2016 is almost over?!), I figured I'd post some shops that offer cruelty-free, non-toxic, and vegan beauty products. This way you can start your "window shopping" early for gifts and catch some holiday deals for yourself. For a kick-ass list of vegan and cruelty-free beauty products I love to refer to Cruelty-free Kitty's & Organic Bunny's Blogs (LOOOVE what they do!).
I've slowly, but surely, switching out all of my beauty products to vegan, cruelty-free, organic and non-toxic (coming up to 6 months now). "But I LOVE my NARS Orgasm lipstick!", you say. The good thing about the beauty world today is that there are sooo many options. There are a plethora of products that are now vegan, cruelty-free and also have the added benefit of being free of petrochemicals, artificial preservatives, GMOs, parabens, dyes, fragrance, sulphates, phthalates, glycols, and nano particles. The BEST part of all of this is that YOU GET TO DECIDE. You get to decide which brands and shops to support. You get to decide what goes on and in your body. Choosing ethically made, cruelty-free, vegan, organic, non-toxic products allows me to celebrate my freedom in love and compassion (even in the smallest, most mundane ways) - for other beings, and for myself.
