I have made a personal commitment to use #donoharmbeauty to effect change in the world. 

All of the makeup I use is cruelty-free. Always.

Not only do I meticulously research and choose furry-friend friendly products for your beauty experience, but I also give back a portion of my profits to an animal charity that protects animals from cruelty, exploitation, and other abuses. I choose to do this for all the living creatures who don't get a choice.

I have made a personal commitment to use #donoharmbeauty to effect change in the world. 

I love animals, and I think it’s an atrocity that 500,000 animals are harmed and killed each year for the sake of cosmetics testing. This does not have to happen. 

That’s why all of the makeup I use is cruelty-free. Always.

All of the makeup I use is cruelty-free. Always.

Not only do I meticulously research and choose furry-friend friendly products for your beauty experience, but I also give back a portion of my profits to an animal charity that protects animals from cruelty, exploitation, and other abuses. I choose to do this for all the living creatures who don't get a choice.


Because kindness starts with choices, even mascara choices.
