Indie Makeup

What is indie makeup, and why have you been kept in the dark about these amazing companies? We all know the difference between high end (Urban Decay, Tarte, etc) vs drug store makeup (Cover Girl, Revlon, etc) but what is Indie makeup and why should I know about it.

Indie makeup is an entirely different world. Usually this makeup or made by small companies, or singular people with a good knowledge for color blending.  They can be made from loose pigments or even lipsticks and pressed shadows.

Why should you by from Indie companys? Well, a lot of times the products are by far superior then even high end makeups, they are not filled with fillers, they are more pure, some are completely vegan and free of cruelty.  Not to mention you are supporting a small business, when you spend your money you know exactly where it’s going to a small company that chances are is feeding a family.

Also, indie companies make really cool unique colors you will not find elsewhere, most will even do custom blending colors for you. They like to stay unique with colors as not to compete with other indie companies or the big box names.

Also, prices, where else can you get custom, unique and quality for low prices!

Don’t be fooled though because there are bad companies out there too, ones that do not care about the products they use, ones who have bad customer service and ones who buy larger containers of other Indie Companies, and then repackage smaller at a higher price.

Our next contest will be featuring an Indie Makeup girl, who use to be in the this field over a decade ago, due to a cross state move she had closed up, and had a baby and now she is back in the grove of things and getting her makeup and skin care line back on the market. You won’t want to miss this contest.
