Want to know the only time you should be using the Facetune app?

When you have a popped blood vessel i.e. Vampire eye. 😂

Scroll to the 5th pic to see what’s really going on, compared to the first picture where I used the Patch tool to (roughly) remove the red.

The smoothing, the reshaping, the refining tools?

Leave ‘em, friends.
You know that wrinkle you hate? or those deep smile lines around your mouth?
You lived some life for those and there’s just something freeing about letting them be.

…but still get you some collagen, let’s not get crazy 😂

Products I can disclose are in the Reel to your right — when the rest launch in the coming weeks, we’ll revisit :)

@beautycounter Think Big vs. Thrive

11/10 recommend Think Big.
Look at the fullness and volume especially at the base of my BC lash?!

[we should note - Thrive has never been my clean mascara of choice]

➖They both lengthen.
➖The both have a soft flex brush, not bristled.

Thrive is a tube formula which I don’t prefer - not only for removing but for the feel of my lashes while wearing.

😫If I touch the Thrive lash, it feels rubber-like or at least like I’m wearing mascara.
✅If I touch the BC lash, it feels soft, light, feathery, like a natural lash.

For me, I have to work harder for Thrive to not clump and have “sticky lashes” - I think you can totally tell the separation happening better on the BC side in this pic.

Swipe and check out that 2nd pic — can you not see how bomb that lash on your left looks compared to the one on your right? 🔥🔥

What’s the next clean mascara comp to our new mascara that you want to see? Drop the brands below and I’ll always share my truthful take!

Did you know carbon black, the same material used to tint many mascaras, is also used for tires and ink?

Beautycounter formulates mascara without carbon black because beauty should be good for you 😘

➖The Go-To:➖
⭐️browns, coppers, bronzes, golds on the eyes
⭐️peach, coral, terracotta on the cheeks
⭐️pink tones lined with a slightly deeper rosey brown

What do you tend to grab that you know will work well together?

Have you caught the info in my stories today?

Today, it’s been 83 years since the US has been without true legislation to uphold a higher standard in health for the consumers of personal care products.

So I say, let’s give ‘em lip.

Text BETTERBEAUTY to 52886 and ask your local lawmakers to use their platform and influence to pass safer beauty laws.

…and vote with your dollar, support @beautycounter’s leadership in advocating for #betterbeauty and pick up your favorite BC lippie.

I’d suggest one of these (3) — and if you like to get DIY, add a concealer to cart to so you can grab (2) shades out of (1) lipstick 😘

H - E - double 🏒

I think I’ve figured out the perfect lineup of a “no makeup” makeup look that will ALSO stay on for events outdoors in Texas heat.

Spoiler: it’s basically our Flawless in Five makeup bundle with a few add-ons that I think add longevity to the look.

We’re heading to a splash pad birthday party today and we’re out on a boat on Lake Travis tomorrow — here are the staples:

1) @beautycounter Dew Skin SPF 25 (reapplication of sunscreen and makeup touchup? Keep reading.)

2) @beautycounter Skin Twin Concealer on any areas you prefer, using as little as you can to cover the area

3) @beautycounter Mattifying Powder - set areas of concealer down

4) @beautycounter Brow Pencil (omit this step if you don’t care or have bomb brows 🤣)

5) @beautycounter Caramel Cream Blush on cheeks and up towards temple

6) @beautycounter Powder Bronzer, on the “3’s” - will set majority of blush

7) *if want an enhanced lip, grab a lip liner and use all over lip (I love Root from @fitglowbeauty right now). If not, skip right to: top with @beautycounter Jellies in Honey.

8) Set with @iliabeauty Blue Light Mist — sets down the powder for long wear AND adds protection for the blue light we’re exposed to (i.e. aging rays!)

9) Mascara — waterproof mascaras in the clean space aren’t really a thing I’ve found yet (e.g. the Ere Perez mascara that’s marketed to be WP isn’t really IMO 😩) — so my suggestions are either @thrivecausemetics since it’s tube and really doesn’t budge or smudge OR what I did here: @beautycounter Lengthening mascara! It’s not intended or marketed to be waterproof but both the BC mascaras are actually great with staying put. [I’m not talking jumping in a pool here — but sweating outside, with a set under eye with powder? Perfect.]

Class Dismissed.
Stay cool, friends 😎

Even though summer in Austin calls for hair up 99% of the time, usually a soaking bun straight from the pool…

I’m so happy to still have my mane after almost chopping it last month 😆
I’ve gone short before and I did like it (and wouldn’t be surprised if @jenbradyatx and I do it in the Fall)…but there’s something about a fresh wash, blow out and then even better 2nd and 3rd day beachy waves with this length.

My hair lineup (washing every 3rd day usually):
— @goop Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub Shampoo, every other wash day
— @beautycounter Daily Shampoo, every wash day (as a 2nd cleanse on goop days!)
— @kavella purple shampoo, every wash day but on the blonde ends only.

— @beautycounter Daily Conditioner, every wash day.

🟣As a heat protectant, I’ve been using @cultandking Set Spray

🌕I also always put my excess @beautycounter No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil onto the ends of my hair after pressing into my skin 💥

— I blow dry with my @mybrushxone round brush dryer OR the @dysonhair dryer I earned from a BC incentive 💥
— I use the @numehair wand set (I am sure there are lower price point wands that will do just as well — I have the 10piece set to have some options on barrel sizes and looks 👍🏻) For this look, I am using the 32mm (1.25 in) barrel

💇🏼‍♀️Stay tuned for some thoughts on my experience with @hairstorystudio — everything is coming my way soon and I’m excited to see if I love it too!

➖1 min Look in Stories

When’s the last time you looked at the label before purchasing a new product?

Did you know that you can be

☑️conscious of ingredients that work FOR you

☑️while avoiding those that potentially harm you (EDCs, contaminants with carcinogenic connections etc)


☑️create makeup looks as flawless as any look you’d find from your favorite MUA/celeb/influencer?

👏🏻Want to know why?
Because the industry is starting to shift and formulating safer isn’t the same “#greenbeauty” you came to know. 🐝🌿
