Beautiful and Healthy

By  | 

More and more we continuously see and hear our friends, co-workers, family, and every other person on the street talk about switching over to living a healthier life style. We are all familiar with quotes such as “you are what you eat.” Yes, a healthy diet and daily exercise makes you feel like a new person.  Eating healthy can help with everything from digestion to inflammation, but that’s on the inside. What about the outside?

Sometimes, it may be hard to find the same intense pigments in natural makeup lines as you do with mainstream makeup lines, but we have found a few solutions.

Red Apple

A great vegan line on the market now is Red Apple Lipstick. They offer lipsticks, lip glosses, lip pencils, eye liners, and eye shadows in a variety of shades.  Their cosmetics are created in small batches to ensure quality in every tube.  The line is entirely a buildable color palette which makes it easy to go from afternoon to evening wear. With Red Apple Lipstick, the more you order the more you save, with their wholesale options. You also have the option of using a cute custom compact that is reusable, keeping the line extremely environmentally conscious.

jura jae

Jura Jae Cosmetics is a new lipstick line, which has created a lot of buzz in New York. All of its colors are fun and exciting with colors like, “I’m Hot” and “Rip the Runway.” With names like that, who wouldn’t feel like a super model wearing it? This line creates super hydration for your lips, all while being long lasting wear. Jura Jae Cosmetics guarantees that every lipstick and lip gloss is made with high quality ingredients, and is preservative free, priding itself for not testing on animals.


Motives by La La? Oh yes! This line is also a mineral based line from its foundations to their mascara.  The cosmetics are said to be healthy for your skin versus just going out with your skin exposed to the elements.  The pigments in this line are 11%, which is higher than most cosmetic lines. One of the perks of shopping with Motives is that you have the option of communication with your own personal consultant. provides excellent customer service,  all while providing custom blends for its consumers from Custom Blend Liquid Foundation to Custom Blend Mineral Foundation, so you can have a look created specifically for you.


So you see, you CAN have your cake, or apple, and eat it too! Beauty starts from within, so why not treat the outside of your body just the same as the inner you.
