I met Krysta Lewis at a local new-age fair and what really captivated me about her (besides her awesome makeup) was her story and why she decided to create her own make up line.
It was self-preservation!
She was sick for 9 years. She tried everything to heal herself and finally traced her malaise to the toxic makeup she was putting on her face daily.
What we put ON our skin is SO important!
When we put something on our skin we are feeding it to our cells.
So, just like you already know that what you eat matters, so does what you put on your face.

There are some craaaazy scaaaary facts about the toxicity of most makeups on the market.
1. The average woman uses 12 beauty products per day, exposing herself to 126 unique chemicals; many of which are toxic and have been linked to cancer, infertility, birth defects, endocrine problems and hormone disruption.
2. Many of these chemicals have been banned in Europe…but they’re still showing up in American products 🙁
3. Many companies proclaim that they are “all-natural,” but there’s no regulation of that term, and often a lot of chemicals are hidden in the terms “fragrance” and “perfume.”
The good news is there’s a wonderful alternative.
Krysta’s Aisling Makeup Line is:
- VEGAN (not animal tested)
- GLUTEN-FREE (it’s quite rare to find gluten-free makeup)
- ORGANIC (why put chemicals on your face when you wouldn’t put them in your mouth!)
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Heavy Metals
- Harmful Fillers
- Mineral Oils
- Talc or Bismuth Oxy.
- the Hibiscus lipstick – It looks good on everyone! It’s the perfect everyday color.
- the foundation – It feels so lovely on my skin. It goes on smooth and even. I wear the color “cork” and I have a kind of olive skin tone.
- the “blush” colored blush – again, super easy to apply and smooth. It’s also a perfect everyday color.
- lip gloss: For evening glam, I treated myself to the deep-purple (350) lip gloss.
- My daughter got a lovely neutral color – pure-nude for herself. (I think I may be borrowing it!)
