When Karissa Bodnar lost her friend to cancer, she realized the need for a makeup line that would be gentle enough for cancer patients to use so they could still feel empowered. She founded Thrive Causemetics, a line of high-performance toxin-free cosmetics with skin-loving properties that all women, regardless of their medical circumstances, can use and feel confident. Her faux eyelashes, for example, can be used even if a person doesn’t have any lashes, which is innovative, as most faux lashes only work if they can be affixed to existing lashes. For every product purchased, the company donates one to a woman in need. There’s even a form on the website so you can nominate a cancer thriver to receive free beauty products.
Because we love a good highlighter we perked up when we saw this Triple Threat Color Stick in Joy (Rose Gold Shimmer) that comes with your choice of a customizable Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner. It’s everything you need for your entire face ladies – we’re talking brows, eyes, cheeks + lips. Yasss! The duo retails for $50.
