The mindful everyday girl does not just buy sustainable fashion and eat organic, she also treats herself to cruelty-free beauty products - because #coolgirlscare.


Urban Decay - Naked Basics palette

Probably my most used beauty product. The six shades in this palette are perfect and can be used for almost everything. As eyeshadow (after all that’s what it is), for my eyebrows and as a highlighter. An absolute must in every makeup bag! *PS. Urban Decay is owned by L'Oreal.


Sante - Beautifying Highlighter Liquid

This vegan German drugstore brand is amazing! It has a whole range of cruelty-free and natural body, skincare & makeup. I especially love the liquid highlighter. The formula is lovely and gives such a nice glow.


The Body Shop - Instaglow CC Cream

Who doesn't love a stroll through The Body Shop? There is always something that smells fantastic to take home, isn't there? My staple is the Instaglow face cream. It has SPF 20, corrects skin tones, moisturizes, reduces the appearance of pores and just feels incredible on. I know, sounds amazing, doesn't it? And it’s only15€! I mean, what more could you want?


Zoeva - Makeup Brushes

All of the makeup brushes I own are by Zoeva. They are such good quality, not too pricey and sometimes even come in super cute special designs. My favourite (most used) brushes are the 103 Silk Finish for when I wear foundation, the 223 Petit Eye Blender for a smudged cat eye & the 233 Brow Liner.
