So by now we all know that I cannot get enough makeup in my life. I mean, I just love it. From lipsticks, to eyeshadows, foundations, concealers, blush and more…I think it’s so fun! And as a makeup artist, a green beauty blogger and makeup fanatic, it’s always exciting to discover new green cosmetic companies! Ones really striving to create safer, green makeup that works just as great as the conventional brands.
I recently found out that Hynt Beauty is the new re-brand of Christopher Drummond! Make’s TOTAL sense – seeing as how I am obsessed with their (famous) concealer and other great products. Here is a little overview of how Hynt came to be, and what it stands for.
Hynt was born through Co-Founder Meryl Marshall ’s need and passion to find makeup and skincare products that offered her the assurance and confidence that whatever she was putting on her skin was safe, non-irritable and carcinogen-free. (My kinda gal!)
Meryl had recently conquered breast cancer, and so she took great care in educating herself on the product labels and on each of the ingredients formulated into her everyday beauty products. Quickly, her search for skin-healthy but still luxurious beauty essentials turned into an elusive hunt.
To her disappointment, Meryl found that other skin-healthy lines failed to fulfill her desire to use luxuriously textured, richly pigmented, and smartly packaged products. Such aesthetic touches are essential to how a woman feels each time she applies her coveted makeup essentials — magical, beautiful, special.
Meryl decided to create her own cosmetics line using state-of-the-art natural formulations. Now women who prioritize the purity and health of their skin have a glamorous, fun and trust-worthy beauty collection that they can wholeheartedly enjoy every day at any moment.
Being from Canada, and a mix of British, Irish and Italian, there wasn’t very much room for a nice glow – especially in the winter. I also inherited my British/Irish genes of pale skin, freckles and easily burnt skin (if not protected). **Thankfully, because of my Italian blood, I do tan better after a base/slight burn ha.** Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I not only love the beach, but long for waves, sand and sunshine. I adore the freckly, beachy, sun-kissed glow it imparts! Sadly, it’s fall now and the beach days are over. (SOB) However, I just received this wonderful product from Prtty Peaushun (Pronounced “Pretty Potion”) and have been blown away by it!
