"The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy."

Foundation, became a everyday necessity for me during my freshmen year of college.
I started to feel all around more put together, when my face was done up: with all the blemishes and pimples hidden. So of course, this was the perfect reason to buy more makeup! I started experimenting, with the many different kinds of foundations, concealers, and bb creams out there.

My favorites would include: L'Oreal magic nude, Laura Mercier's tinted foundation, Estee Lauder double wear light, and Makeup Forever HD foundation.

That, is until I discovered: Inika.

So. there's nothing wrong with wearing make-up. You do whatever it is that makes you feel most beautiful. What I was finding troublesome, however, was that I was putting chemicals on my face on a daily basis. This means that my skin isn't breathing, and I'm not letting any acne that appears, heal. This would also, ultimately lead to my skin aging at a faster rate too. (wrinkles, ahhh).

And I am not at that point in my life where I want to be completely makeup free, the best solution I found to this conundrum of mine was switching over to the makeup line Inika.

It is a game changer.

I went to the Birchbox store in Soho, and the girls working there were super helpful and they introduced me to this company, that prior to, I hadn't heard of. I ended up walking out of the store with the Inika face in a box, starter kit that includes: primer, concealer, liquid foundation, mineral powder foundation, and bronzer (along with a kabuki and contour brush)

Half of the INIKA product range is Certified Organic, the other half comprises of 100% pure mineral makeup. All INIKA products are Vegan, Certified Halal and Certified Cruelty Free.

You really can't ask for more more from a makeup company, and not to mention that the prices are affordable. I was so impressed with the starter kit, I went back and purchased a full size liquid foundation(since its time for cold weather, and my skin will be drier).

Ever since I switched over and altered my makeup routine to use only Inika products, my skin has improved so much, and it has stopped acting up as much as it used to.

In addition to all of this, the products have amazing staying power. I can go all day without a touchup, and my skin looks like it's glowing and healthy.

If you are looking for a way to wear makeup with minimal damage to your skin, I completely recommend Inika!!! Check out their website for more information here

To sum up how I feel about makeup? I'll leave you with a quote from Dita Von Teese!

"A lot of guys have that thing, like: 'I like you with no make up on. I like you natural.' And I get that, and I am that way, but it's really about, like.. You can't dictate to a woman what should make her feel sexy."
