Lots of people talk about throwing out their entire bin of products and starting afresh with a completely organic/eco-friendly line-up. While I support the cause, I think it's much smarter to slowly phase eco-friendly products into your routine, rather than a quick purge and replenish.
To pursue a more green approach to your beauty routine, instead of loading up on vegan lipsticks and eyeshadows that you only use once in a while, invest in green versions of what you use every single day, like concealers and cleansers.

The colour offerings in the eco-beauty sphere can sometimes be a bit limited, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any solid products out there at all. The Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée ($15) not only has a delicious fragrance, it also offers a sheer finish and lasting hydration thanks to the inclusion of the line’s organic argan oil. Eminently blendable, easily buildable and effective on both lips and cheeks, this little pot of colour was made for daily use; as a bonus, it also layers really well both under and over different types of lip and cheek pigments.
