From organic food to natural skin care, it can be overwhelming trying to find healthy but effective products. It seems we can’t even drink water nowadays without pondering alkalinity, reverse osmosis, and source! I’m on an ongoing quest to curate high-performance cosmetics that don’t compromise pigmentation and staying power but are friendly to skin and health. Antonym is a brand known for runway-worthy color collections while using quality organic ingredients formulated without animal testing. It’s eco-friendly with fabulous bamboo packaging, which makes toting my favorite quad eyeshadows light and easy. Some of my favorite style icons, Kate Mara, Ashley Green and Keira Knightely have worn Antonym for red carpet looks. The blendable color combinations of the quads are versatile enough to work on variable skin tones. I happen to love To the Moon and Black for a dramatic sizzling eye, so perfect for a night at a newly opened restaurant. While the colors brought me out of my comfort zone a bit, they were easy to manipulate and apply and the intensity stayed fresh through post-prandial drinks too!
Antonym has achieved a designation as a Leaping Bunny brand, which validates that no animal testing is done at any stage in product development. The seal assures that we are protecting animals by supporting cruelty-free practices. Since the ingredients in Antonym makeup are so highly vetted, they tend to do better with sensitive skin. The shadows feel very comfortable on and don’t cake and crease as other makeup does. Antonym was founded by Miami makeup artist Valerie Giraud, whose talent in creating rich color combinations take the guesswork out of creating perfect looks. Guilt-free beauty is the wave of the future!
