Let’s face it; as women, most of us wear at least a little bit of makeup every day. For something that has become such a daily ritual in most of our lives, it only makes sense for us to seek out something that is not only good for us, but also good for the earth it comes from.
Enter, Elate Cosmetics.
I first became introduced to Elate over a year ago when the local, Canadian company started really making waves on good ‘ol Instagram. All their products are vegan, toxin and cruelty free, gluten free and sustainable. And what made me love this company even more is that their founder, Melodie Reynolds, really embodies all that her brand stands for. She is even working towards making Elate the world’s first waste free cosmetic company and uses wildflower seed paper for much of her packaging.
It is brands and people of integrity that really captivate me.
Since then I have been an dedicated user of Elate Cosmetics. The thing I love best about their products is that, unlike other green beauty companies I have tried in the past, Elate Cosmetics is gentle on your skin yet tough enough to have the staying power to actually work, and last throughout the day! My favourite must-have products are the Creme Concealer in Buff, Vibrant Lipstick in Tantric and the Universal Creme in Wonder Highlight.
To show you how beautiful these products really are, I collaborated together with an amazing team to showcase Elate Cosmetics in action. Dream team credits are found below, be sure to check out each of these amazing artists on their websites listed below:

Elate Cosmetics has retail locations across BC and the rest of Canada, plus full access to all their products on their online store. If you’re not sure what to try, they also offer sample packs (only $8) with five mix & match products made for light, medium or dark skin tones.
Their new Fall 2016 collection, Idol, launches today and Elate has been so generous to offer my readers a 10% off code: simplystunning for any purchases made this month.
I know that you will love the beauty, simplicity and sustainability of Elate Cosmetics as much as I do! Make sure to tag me in your beauty selfies on Instagram if you try out any of the new products from the collection!
