Why Amy Liu Is Obsessed With Giving You Healthy Skin
If you love beauty as much as we do, you may have noticed that the line between makeup and skin care gets increasingly blurry. In the past, the quest for clean, non-toxic beauty hasn’t always gone hand-in-hand with fun color cosmetics, but that’s a-changing. Now you can get that glow whether you go bare-faced or love a solid makeup routine, and our favorite beauty entrepreneurs are turning out clean products that are not only good for our skin — they make us look great, too.
Take Tower 28: a skincare and makeup brand created by Amy Liu that marries skin benefits with color cosmetics. The brand‘s mantra is everything we could ask for: clean beauty with minimalist design that gives you that dewy glow — all without breaking the bank.
