Sustainability in practice
As an artist, I ensure that all of my work is carried out in a eco-friendly and sustainable manner.
I use the highest quality products in my kit (across cosmetics, skincare and haircare too) whilst making educated decisions to minimise unnecessary plastic packaging or 'over-packaging', simply by choosing the right brands.
Disposable products are kept to a minimum, but without compromising hygiene and safety. I carry reusable microfibre bamboo pads for cleansing, any cotton products are unbleached where possible and plastic free. I use re-usable silicone mascara wands to ensure that hygiene is prioritised alongside minimising single use plastic items - these can be reused time and time again and sanitised in between for safety!
Brands in my kit:
Face Halo, Superfacialist, Pink and Green Skincare, Urban Veda, Evolve Beauty, Katherine Daniels, By Sarah, Ole Henriksen, Eve Lom...
Kevyn Aucoin, Illamasqua, ELF Cosmetics, Pur Cosmetics, Lipstick Queen, Ciate London...
Maria Nila Stockholm, Lee Stafford Hair...
Any questions? Just ask!
Cruelty Free, Vegan, Organic?
I am moving to ensure all my kit is entirely cruelty free with lots of vegan and organic options, but bear with me - I don't want to throw anything away before it's finished or expired, as I feel that would be equally wasteful.
I also have options which are Paraben free and SLS free... and I know my stuff when it comes to ingredients and allergens, keeping you safe and informed for what each ingredient does for your skin!
Giving back, Paying Forward...
Despite not being a big corporate company, I feel the responsibility all the same. From 2018 tax year onwards, a percentage of every journey by car will be donated to a charity for climate change action. I am currently looking into donating to Campaign to Protect Rural England.
Older parts of my kit are donated to Give and Makeup - a collection point for Refuge, a charity that aids women and children escaping domestic violence.
Mascara wands from empty tubes are cleaned and saved for the Appalachian Wild 'Wands for Wildlife' campaign - until another UK based collection opens!
