An easy, five-minute safer makeup routine with the Flawless in Five set by Beautycounter.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably heard me mention my new makeup routine one or twice. Honestly, I wanted to use the products for a while before reporting how I felt about it on the blog. Verdict? L-O-V-E.
Why the Flawless in Five?
After years of hearing about clean beauty from some of my friends, I was finally ready to hear more. However, if I’m being totally honest, wanting to start a family in the near future is what kicked my butt into gear. I knew that the ingredients in my beauty products aren’t recommended for pregnancy, and I wanted to learn what my options were for safer skincare and makeup.
Secondly, I wanted to slowly detox my body of those unsafe chemicals before trying to start a family. That’s why the Flawless in Five is the perfect introduction to safer beauty. It has all the makeup basics you need to look polished and pulled together in five minutes, without the worry of heavy metals or other unsafe ingredients. Plus, they work.
What’s in the Flawless in Five?
Beautycounter’s Flawless in Five set has six safer beauty staples: foundation, concealer, eyebrow pencil, mascara, blush, and lip gloss. If you’ve been curious about the quality of safer beauty products, but don’t know where to start, I highly recommend the Flawless in Five set. You just can’t find six (6!) high-quality, safer beauty products for this price point at Ulta or Sephora.
I was tired of my favorite foundation clogging my pores after only one use, and I found myself sacrificing WEEKS of clear skin just for one or two special occasions a month. It just wasn’t worth having pretty skin one day a month to then deal with cystic acne and clogged pores the rest of the month.
I’m pleased to report that even with 2x-3x weekly use, Tint Skin has not clogged my pores! This is an absolute first for me with any foundation! If I dared to use my Double Wear foundation that many times in one week, I pretty much knew I’d have bumpy skin for weeks on end. Tint Skin has a light t0 medium coverage that is buildable, which also means your skin can breathe. Win!
