After roughing it in Ecuador for two weeks its been exciting to get back in the swing of things. I was even more excited when Everyday Minerals reached out and asked if I wanted to try their makeup line. Everyday Minerals is an all-natural vegan makeup brand based out of Austin, Texas. It’s always fun to find natural brands based out of my hometown.

Everyday Minerals sent me their Makeup Diary Austin 9 Piece Shimmer Eyeshadow Makeup Kit. This kit is perfect for the makeup minimalist. The colors are all muted and natural tones. And there are shades that suit every skin tone. The kit comes with 8 shimmery eyeshadows and a double sided bamboo makeup brush. I recommend using a make-up setting spray like this one from NYX to help deepen the pigments as they are quite light. My last good beauty post was a guest post by blogger friend Maha Matar, check it out when you get a chance. So I am happy to have some beauty goodies to share with you!

My favorite thing about this makeup brand is their initiative to protect the earth and create quality and safe beauty products. From the vegan mineral based makeup to the recyclable packaging, this brand embodies ethical beauty to its core. When you collect 8 of their large size makeup jars and send them back, they’ll give you a free blush (your choice of color). Not that you needed extra motivation to recycle.

I tend to gravitate towards natural eyeshadow hues. So I’m very happy with the color selection in this eyeshadow kit. The shimmer helps add a nice glow to my skin too! I’ve linked some other great colors from their eyeshadow collection below.
