(Truthstream Media) Ladies, do you really know what you’re smearing all over your face every day?
In this super rad glam makeup tutorial, I show you how to achieve the best makeup look…
…with the most toxic, under-regulated chemicals, using level 10 known, probable, and possible human carcinogens, heavy metals and all the endocrine disruptors your hormones can shake a stick at! Hide those life-destroying blemishes and flaws, while blending potentially harmful crap into your beautiful face for a night out at da club or whatev!
Can you even pronounce these ingredients? Eh, who cares!! Because YOLO, right?
Seriously though, do you really want to know what’s in your makeup? Check out the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database on ingredients here to find out. You might be surprised after you wade through all the six-syllable chemicals in tiny fonts at all the dangerous petrochemicals, phthalates, parabens, and other toxic crap you are putting on your skin.
Most people don’t even realize that the FDA basically allows the cosmetic industry to regulate itself. This is from the agency’s own site regarding authority over cosmetics:
FDA’s legal authority over cosmetics is different from our authority over other products we regulate, such as drugs, biologics, and medical devices. Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not need FDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives.
Doesn’t that make you feel so SAFE???
That’s right. Cosmetics do not need premarket approval. That must be why so many of the ingredients I checked for this video lack even the most basic scientific safety studies!
The things we do to ourselves and don’t even think about do eventually add up. I made this video in the hopes that the girls out there will at least consider what this stuff is doing to their bodies long-term. We don’t have to live our lives based on what television sets and magazines tell us beauty is. Beauty is not living in a country where one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lifetimes, for one thing.
As far as makeup is concerned, if you really need it, there truly are safer, more natural options out there. Just do a little research. There are even websites like Wellness Mama with recipes on how to make your own!
P.S. — Just want to thank my mom for giving me a bag of her old makeup to use for this video! I love you, mom.
