What To Have In Your Starter Makeup Kit?

What To Have In Your Starter Makeup Kit?

It’s often that I get an e-mail from a reader asking for advice on how to put together a basic makeup kit, something that has everything that she could need to create both a day- & night-time look. I’ve got this message so often that I decided to put together a checklist where every “beginner” can follow. Since I believe in personal preferences I made this checklist in 3 different versions; one for the lovers of healthy beauty, one for the high spenders & brand lovers, and one for the drugstore divas. Dig in Ladies and let me know which one would be your selection!

Healthy Beauty Series I. – What’s Behind The Labels; Organic, Natural & Non-Toxic

Healthy Beauty Series I. – What’s Behind The Labels; Organic, Natural & Non-Toxic

As you’ve might recognized, there is more & more about natural & organic beauty on The Sparkling Blueberry. This is because since I’ve got pregnant, my mindset drastically changed, and however I was always conscious on other fields of my life (like food, or household) I got easily carried away by nice packaging and high-end labels when it comes to makeup and skincare.

But since the summer of 2015 this has been changed and as I’m changing and learning a new approach to beauty the same thing happening with my blog too. As part of my transition I’d like to introduce a new series on the blog which is a kind of step-by-step guide to healthy beauty and more. If you’ve ever felt the urge to make healthier and more conscious choices when it comes to beauty, this series can be very helpful to push you to the right direction. Join me!
