That’s What I’m Talking About… Beauty With a Purpose

Their manifesto, “Beauty with a Purpose”a beauty brand that goes beyond skin deep.

I discovered a new beauty brand through my Instagram feed. Yes, it was another ad. I know, most of us don’t want our Insta feed being cluttered with ads, and I’m with ya.

But, as a small business owner I get it. Sometimes we have to use ads on social to get our business out there. This ad stopped my scrolling for 3 reasons::

  • They showcased great images {ya know I’m a sucker for those}
  • I wanted to know more of what, “Beauty with a Purpose” meant
  • Being a Senior + Headshot photographer makeup is a BIG DEAL {always looking at new products}

Their ad led me wanting to find out more. None of us want to throw our money out the window without finding out more right?

I researched + asked around on my Facebook + Instagram pages in case anyone used their products, but it looks like they are pretty new to the makeup scene so I had to try them for myself.

LOVE THAT!:: They are a one-for-one company {when you purchase a product they give one to a female cancer patient}

I ordered the mascara + brow highlighter and love them both. The mascara separates my lashes pretty well and no clumps. It doesn’t bleed and is comes off far easier than my last mascara. When your photographing close-ups in headshots the eye lashes make a noticeable difference! {just a little tip if you don’t have your makeup professionally applied for your headshots}. I liked those two products enough to order again + try a few others. If I could only apply their eye looks the way they show in their Instagram photos 😉 #makeuplessons

If you’ve tried any of the other Thrive products I’d love to hear how they worked out. I’m looking at their line of lip color next 😉

I talk about this all the time in my portrait consults, when getting your senior portraits or head shot portraits it’s SO IMPORTANT to have focus on your makeup. Yes, even if you wear a little to no makeup as your everyday look, a polished finish makes a BIG difference in your portraits. So if you apply your makeup be sure to wear quality makeup.

My article on “Camera Ready Makeup” guides you through important steps for applying your makeup for your portrait session.

I DO NOT work for Thrive, but when I placed my order they sent me an offer code to share for $10 off. If you’re interested in trying their products, a little bonus cash never hurts 😉
