I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the founder of Emani Cosmetics, Michelle Doan, to talk about vegan cosmetics and sensitive skin. Growing up with acne problems myself in my teens, I completely understood Michelle's own personal struggle with cystic acne and the difficulties of wearing makeup with irritable skin. It was her own frustrations that inspired her to seek out a beauty alternative that didn't cause her sensitive skin to break out. The solution? Working one-on-one with world-renowned chemists, Michelle developed a line of clean, glamorous makeup that is free of skin-irritants and harmful ingredients such as petrochemicals, nano-particles, artificial dyes, parabens, or fillers. In fact, all Emani products are cruelty-free and composed entirely of vegan ingredients!
Listen in to see what else Michelle taught me about her cosmetics line:
I was really impressed with the level of coverage the Emani products we tested offer. Most often, you're caught in a choice between covering up your blemishes with cakey makeup, or trying to let it heal with no makeup at all. Michelle said she wants women to take off their Emani makeup at the end of the day and have even more beautiful skin than before they put it on in the morning. Every girl's dream! The ingredients (like you'll see in the Perfect 10 Primer in the video) are meant to nourish your skin, while Emani's range of foundations and concealers nourish and let you create buildable coverage that doesn't look cakey!
You can now find Emani Cosmetics at London Drugs, so check it out for yourself!
Happy Styling! xo
