There are a ton of natural, eco-conscious makeup brands out there these days, but I always come back to Root because they’re makeup is affordable and high-quality.

I love how affordable Root products are. Also, very cool that you send foundation color samples for free! I’m definitely going to be doing that as soon as my current foundation gets low!!
