Empties: Makeup Edition

There are (at least) six cruelty-free beauty products that Business Assistant (and blogger!) Patrizia just can’t do without. Find out which ones she swears by til the very last drop…

Vapour Solar Translucent Bronzer in Simmer

I combine this with my powder bronzer and use it to contour my cheeks and nose. I’ve used other brands, but love that Vapour is light, doesn’t clog my pores and leaves a dewy glow.

RMS Beauty MultEYETasker in Peach

I’ve only ever tried white eyeliner on the inside of my eye, and it never really looked right. This is the perfect shade for me (I have olive skin and dark eyes). It makes my eyes look bigger and brighter! 

Maya Chia Highlight of the Day in Golden Hour

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” There really isn’t enough I could say about this bottle of glowy magic. I use it every morning by mixing it with my moisturizer. I apply it all over my face, my neck, and my décolletage. It gives me a shimmery, glowy, dewiness that I absolutely love. For the first time ever I don’t mind leaving the house without make-up, as long as I have my Highlight of the Day!

RMS Beauty Mascara – Volumizing

I’ve tried so many mascaras and I am happy to report RMS’s is one of the best. My eyelashes aren’t naturally full, so I am always looking for a mascara that will add volume without lumps. This one perfectly accomplishes that and it’s also very easy to remove (no scary raccoon eyes!).

Unpa 24/7 Lip Stain in 8am and 11am

Lip stains usually leave my lips feeling very dry, but Upna’s is different. It goes on wet and quickly dries to a beautiful matte finish that lasts for HOURS while keeping my lips hydrated.

NOTO Hydra Highlighter Stick

This little guy now lives in my purse. It’s a tiny and convenient stick that I can reapply whenever I need, wherever I am! Perfect for the lip area, bridge of my nose, under the arch of my brows…. Pretty much anywhere and everywhere I want a little extra highlight!

I like to get up early to go out and breathe fresh air. I feel that it is good for health and a good habit
