Her Safer Swaps

1. Concealer

Her pick: RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up – 22

What it is: A skin-perfecting, illuminating concealer for the eyes and face.

Why she loves it: To give me that extra boost of coverage, the RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up is my secret weapon because it leaves you with perfect skin that looks like your own. Thanks to super-moisturizing ingredients like organic coconut oil, cocoa seed butter, jojoba seed oil and rosemary, this concealer works wonders on dark circles, blemishes and more.

2. Foundation

Her pick: jane iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream SPF 25 – BB7

What it is: A full-coverage liquid foundation for sensitive skin.

Why she loves it: For those wanting great coverage from their foundation, the jane iredale Glow Time Mineral BB Cream with SPF 25 is my favorite option! Made with far fewer toxins than conventional foundations, this product really does provide a flawless finish—and with just a tiny amount!

3. Full Coverage + SPF

Her pick: jane iredale PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation Refill SPF 20 – Golden Glow

What it is: A pressed mineral foundation with a sheer, semi-matte finish in a refill pan.

Why she loves it: For days where I want fuller coverage, this jane iredale pressed powder offers additional coverage and a satin-smooth finish. This works great to brighten and smooth the under-eye area or to just ensure maximum coverage is provided! Simply pat a small amount where desired.

4. Contouring

Her pick: Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation – 135

What it is: A cream foundation stick that delivers a protective foundation base to your complexion.

Why she loves it: Want to effortlessly contour your face? Give these Vapour Organic Foundation sticks a try! Made with organic sunflower oil, lotus flowers, fruit essences and more, these superstar sticks will warm up your face in a snap. Simply choose a color two to three shades darker than your natural skin tone and watch your face transform.

5. Finishing Powder

Her pick: RMS Beauty Un-powder 

What it is: A pure silica finishing powder for a flawless-looking complexion.

Why she loves it: Once you are done applying your foundations and other cream products, you can then set your face with the RMS Un-powder to remove any leftover shine. This powder really does absorb all excess oil, leaving you with a lightweight, soft matte finish.

6. The Lips

Her pick: jane iredale Lip Pencil – Berry

What it is: A creamy color pencil that enriches and defines the lips.

Why she loves it: Love bold lips, but prefer less toxins? These jane iredale lip pencils are a great choice for those wanting clean products with full performance. Here I used the color Berry to fill in most of my lip with a pretty plum color, and then I topped it off with the Pure Gloss in Cosmo for a fun spring lip.
