B.A.B.E. OF THE MONTH: SARAH ELISABETH
Every month, we're spotlighting a Badass Beauty Expert (B.A.B.E.) and picking their brain on all things beauty, wellness, and channeling your inner baddie. We hope these interviews will serve as a platform for raw and vulnerable discussion—and inspire you to step out of your makeup and skincare comfort zones.
Sarah is a makeup artist, tarot reader, and astrological guide in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Define yourself in three words.
Creative, witchy and eclectic.
What are three things you can't live without? (Beauty products can be included, but they don't have to be!)
1. A creative outlet 2. A good red lip 3. My tarot and Oracle decks
What prompted you to make the switch to safe makeup brands? I am very passionate about clean product consumption—food, cleaning products, beauty products, etc. I want to make sure most everything I am putting on or in my body isn't going to wreak havoc on my mind and body. I am also a makeup artist
and I want to make sure my clients are
feeling their best as well!
What are your safe makeup and skincare favorites? CLOVE + HALLOW has been one of the first brands I have gotten the chance to try just because of the price point of a lot of clean beauty. So far I am really loving the Lip Velvet in Fiesta and Sangria, the perfect autumn/winter reds!
What advice would you give for finding safe cosmetics?
Take it step by step. It can get very overwhelming switching over into clean beauty. You don't have to throw away your entire collection. Use the things you have up and slowly start replacing them with cleaner products. It doesn't have to be overwhelming!
The reason I chose to try CLOVE + HALLOW to start my clean beauty journey is one, I saw Steph from @gothglosscreative wearing the Fiesta Lip Velvet; Two, the price point is much better than most clean beauty brands; and three, I can tell Sarah Biggers-Stewart really cares about her brand and she is also a makeup artist—I love that!
What do you think makes someone a badass? Empathy, honesty, and someone that inspires and empowers others!
How did you find your inner badass? -Embracing my masculine and feminine energy
-Understanding my natal/birth chart through astrology
-Reading tarot for myself and others
-Knowing my worth and empowering others to do the same!
