We are now officially in Spring with Easter weekend in a couple of weeks’ time and further lockdown restrictions easing next month. It’s making me feel more optimistic especially with the milder weather, blue skies and sunny mornings. I’ve been more motivated to go for a long walk at the start of the day which always has a positive impact on my mood and wellbeing.
With mostly being at home I’ve kept my makeup look minimal but as we are now in Spring, I feel like I need to get some glow back into my cheeks and brighten my face with a little blusher. Veganism is on the rise and it’s not just about the food we eat but also the type of beauty products we use on our skin. The term ‘clean beauty’ has been used vastly within the beauty industry. Beauty brands are having to rethink about the ingredients they use in production and cater for the ever-growing vegan market.
Let’s take a look at a selection of vegan friendly blushers to give your face a gorgeous glow….
A gel-balm tint blush which is lightweight and leaves a hint of colour to give a glass-like sheen. An alternative to the traditional powder base blush. This glossy cheek tint consists of natural extracts of yuzu and dragon fruit to give you a natural flush to your cheeks. It is vegan friendly and comes in 4 different shades: ‘Papaya’, ‘Watermelon’, ‘Coconut’ and ‘Pomegranate’ suitable for all skin tones.
