After realizing that one of our editorial team members was stumped on natural hacks for her daily beauty routine, our Editor In Chief decided to take on her makeup bag and hunt for natural swaps for her most-loved products.
Need a reminder about why the heck all this “green beauty” stuff matters? Read up here and here for more details.

Wow, W3LL PEOPLE’s products look so luxurious! I’ve been wanting to switch over to a toxic-free makeup routine, but it’s so hard to find anything that can stand the test of a long day. I’d be curious to know what the staying power of the foundation and the eyeliner are. Perhaps I’ll test them out myself!
