Going Cruelty Free Can Be Tough

I’m going to start this off by saying that this isn’t in any way to say I regret going cruelty free. This has been an incredibly important step in my life as a makeup enthusiast, animal lover, and spiritual being and it’s one that I have found rewarding and grounding.
