My Current Clean Beauty [and Low/Zero waste] Routine


I just shared a new reel with a quick overview of my clean [non-toxic and cruelty-free] makeup routine which you can watch here! I recently discovered a few new clean beauty products and they’ve quickly become beauty products I use daily.

I love that Nordstrom not only carries all my favorite clean beauty products–but they also just launched BEAUTYCYCLE, a program with a goal to help create a zero waste beauty routine!

Any empty packaging [regardless of brand or purchase location] that can’t go into your regular curbside recycle bin can be dropped off in the BEAUTYCYCLE bins in the beauty department at every Nordstrom and Nordstrom Local location in the U.S. This includes everything from hair spray bottles to face soap dispensers to mascara tubes.

Nordstrom has partnered with TerraCycle who reuses, upcycles, and recycles everything so that the materials can be used to make new products [i.e everything from watering cans to park benches] instead of going to the landfill. More detail can be found here.

All my clean beauty products I use are listed down below!

bareMinerals Longevity Long Life Herb Serum: This is a clean, vegan anti-aging serum, powered by Long Life Herb, and is clinically shown to strengthen skin. I use this as a base to prep my skin.

bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer: I recently switched from the Jane Iredale Liquid foundation to this tinted moisturizer by bareMinerals. I feel like it provides more coverage and is more hydrating for my dry skin [and now I see what all the fuss was about for BB creams!].

BeautyBlender Sponge Application: I use this to apply my liquid foundation.

Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Mineral Powder: I use Golden Glow when I have no tan and Latte during the summer months/when I have a tan [currently wearing Latte].

Jane Iredale Refillable Compact Case: Jane Iredale products come in refills which go into this compact case. This helps cut down on unnecessary waste.

Jane Iredale Handi Brush: this brush is amazing quality and will last YEARS [my first one lasted me over 10 years before I replaced it].

Jane Iredale So-Bronze 1 Bronzing Powder: [Shade SB1] I use this year-round in replace of blush

Jane Iredale POMMISST Hydration Spray

bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Copper Palette: I just started using this eyeshadow palette, and I love the colors and compact size of it [I’ve never been one to use a couple of colors in a palette!]. The color goes on well and blends very easily! [eyeshadow brush here]

bareMinerals Mineralist Lipstick: [wearing the color Memory in my reel video].

I also use:

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade® Waterproof Brow Color*: [Shade: Medium Brown-colors run dark]. This pomade makes it so easy to shape your eyebrows. I also love it because it lasts forever making it very low-waste since you use it with a reusable brush [I’ve tried other brow pencils/tools and they get used so quickly!].

*This is not technically a clean product [contains a paraben] but it is cruelty-free and vegan. Because it works so well and is so low waste, this is still one of my favorites [it’s all about moderation!].

Anastasia Eyebrow Duo Brush

*Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post!
