3 Ways To Detoxify Your Makeup Collection

Detoxify Your Makuep

You're a busy, beautiful, bold woman, and I know you don't compromise when it comes to your healthy ways and your active lifestyle. So why settle for makeup that's laden with chemicals and unnecessary added ingredients? Why not take a stand against traditional cosmetics and move onto something more natural?

Natural gets a bad rap. We’ve all heard the complaints: “It won’t wear as well,” “The colors are boring.” We’ve heard the complaints, and we can prove them all wrong.

It's time you felt confident about giving your makeup collection a cleanse, knowing you won't have to sacrifice performance for a safer alternative. These 3 easy steps are designed to help you detoxify your makeup collection without settling for boring, bland hues:

  1. Use lipsticks without parabens or synthetic fragrances. It’s estimated that women ingest almost 3.7 POUNDS of lipstick in a year. That’s a lot of lipstick! So choose a line without scary additives—things you would never consider ingesting on their own.
  2. Avoid waterproof polymers. Especially when deciding on products such as mascara and eyeliners that tend to boast about their “waterproof” qualities, be sure to read the ingredient lists carefully. Waterproof polymers are typically silicone, which are chemical and may cause irritation. Plus, no sense in piling on the chemicals near delicate areas such as the eyes.
  3. Think less is more. When browsing ingredient lists, typically, less is more. The fewer the ingredients, the more clear it is what you're actually putting on your face. Lean toward cosmetics with ingredients that include natural extracts for a nourishing effect, and if things seem complicated or you’re unsure of what you’re reading, take the time to do your research using resources such as the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database—it’s worth it!

Natural doesn’t have to be boring—and the prospect of a cosmetics line that’s safer for you is anything but—

Consider your nieces, daughters, sisters, mothers, and of course yourself—all of the beautiful ladies in your life--wouldn’t you do anything to encourage preventative measures for women’s health? 

Day in and day out we slather our faces with chemical-based creams, paraben-filled cosmetics, and synthetic perfumes. Hundreds of toxins you, perhaps unknowingly, apply to your skin. But there's a makeup line out there, a line of bold, natural, paraben-free cosmetics, that's providing you with a safer alternative.

Cate McNabb Cosmetics was founded on the belief that there is always a better way. With 20 bold shades of long wearing, natural lipstick and a wide range of bold, beautiful eyeshadows in highly pigmented, high performing colors, we’re convinced the cosmetics world of old is becoming a thing of the past.

Create a traditional cat eye (the Cate McNabb signature “Cate eye”) with a not-so-traditional natural gel eyeliner. Love to shine in mineral loose eyeshadows, and make it all matte with a natural HD finishing powder.

Brands built solely on the notion of changing appearances, with no concern for the state of women’s wellbeing aren’t the only options anymore. The chemical additives they’ve packed into their products for years may act as cheap fillers, but we prefer the natural kind of fillers, the kind with no questionable, negative long-term effects on our skin; they’re a little harder to work with, sure, but with some extra effort they perform just as well, if not better.

Why not naturally infused? Why not bold, mineral-based pigments?

The Cate McNabb selection process is thorough and comprehensive. We do our research, select colors on the basis of trend reports, scrutinize the ingredient lists, and spend days testing and playing to ensure every product meets all of our high standards.  

You can shop the entire line of bold, natural cosmetics, and begin to detoxify your makeup now!

Choose natural, be bold, never compromise.
