As most of you know by know Root is one of my favorite all natural, gluten-free, AND vegan brands of makeup.
What’s always impressed me with Root is the quality of their product at such an affordable price. I’ve tried a number of natural brands that just don’t hold up in comparison to their drugstore counterparts.
Root, however, is a huge exception. And as a new mama, I love make-up that is quick, easy, effortless, and enjoyable to use.
So for the first time Root shopper trying to swap out some of the toxic products in her make-up bag, here’s my guide to making your first Root order.
I’ve said it before, my number one Root obsession is their Shea Butter Lipsticks! They are so moisturizing and come in a variety of colors. My personal favourites:
FLIRT – neutral, everyday light peach
BOMBSHELL - stunning & vibrant pink with slight peachy undertone
VINTAGE KISS - medium mauve color
BELL- lighter shade with a fun orange-y peach tone
FAMOUS – In their words, a “show stopping red” – in my words, a “Taylor Swift worthy red.” Gorgeous!
SADIE - their number one selling blush is a stunning peachy pink that compliments most all skin tones.
100% LASH MASCARA – a root staple!
JANESSA – a lovely taupey grey brown color.
IN THE NAVY – a navy blue - I love this applied wet as eyeliner!
DIAMOND (shown above) – a bright shimmering white color, perfect for inner corners of the eye.
MIDNIGHT MOCHA - a rich brown with a bronzy gold sheen, great for eye definition
PRETTY BRUSH CLEANER – great to keep your brushes clean. (side note: I tried making my own once but it ended up so oily. This is the perfect combination of natural oils to keep your brushes soft but smoothness so it dries easily!)
PRETTY BOOSTER LIQUID MINERALS – I use this sort of like a BB Cream pre-foundation. It really tones and tightens my skin!
HELLO PRETTY UNDER-EYE BRIGHTENER. After lipstick, this may be my next favourite – you can easily hide dark circles & instantly brighten your complexion by applying our Hello Pretty Under Eye Brightener in an upside down triangle shape underneath your eyes!
I hope this little guide helps you discover the lovely Root! If you’ve ever wondered the dangers and toxins often lurking in a lot of make-up brands, check out this interesting article.
