BEAUTY 101: FRESH FACE

 

Make up and fashion have always been a huge part of our life. Ever since we were little girls, we watched our mum expertly blend her eyeshadow, accessorise like a queen & spray her spikes to be completely wind proof! She was...and still is one of the most beautiful and stylish women we know. 

Two things our mum taught us was to look after our skin....and to apply make up properly. No orange faces, smudge out your eyeliner & always choose colours to compliment your eyes. Its fair to say we both grew up loving make up! When we started using essential oils and researching the adverse affects of everyday chemicals, one of the first things we looked into were more natural choices for our make up. 

Finding the best, natural or clean make up products is an ongoing thing for us, but here's a list of our current everyday faves:

 

MADRA Anti-pollution CC Cream SPF15:

This little multi-tasker is amazing!! The texture is silky, light & luxurious. The coverage is perfect for everyday wear smoothing out imperfections and redness, but still allowing a really natural finish. It contains deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid to nourish all day long, SPF15 and its quick & easy to apply with fingertips making it a winner for a quick everyday look. 

Not only are they gorgeous to use, MADARA are entirely natural and ecological cosmetics, certified according to the international ECOCERT standard. 

 

 

 

This concealer & serum in one, is a little bottle of wonder. The texture is creamy, covers redness & dark circles and most importantly does not set in creases around the eyes. The serum is formulated with Lilac Plant Stem cells which stimulate cell turnover, heal and prevent future damage to the skin as well as high-definition mineral optics to blur the appearance of imperfections. Basically a few hours of sleep in a bottle!
Bare Minerals are the pioneers of the mineral make up movement. Their products are free of harsh chemicals and unnecessary additives including Chemical Sunscreens, Coal Tar, Formaldehyde, Mineral Oil, Microbeads, Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Triclosan and Triclocarban.

 

INIKA Baked Mineral Bronzer - Sunkissed:

Ok so we are both "blessed" pale skin....if there is a product we know, its bronzer! This baked bronzer gives the colour pigment of a loose powder without the mess and of course the ease that a compact powder offers. Its the perfect shade of  golden bronze without any orange undertones. Its also easy to build up for those with darker skin. Quick & and easy to use as a contour or swipe over the forehead, chin, nose & cheeks for a sun-kissed face. 

INIKA Organic makeup is an Australian mineral makeup brand has won many beauty industry awards, and offers a huge collection of certified organic products.

 

RMS BEAUTY Luminizer X Quad:

We are seriously obsessed with RMS and this quad is a serious star!! It contains 4 shades of luminizing cream that can be worn alone or mixed to create the perfect glow. Easy to apply with fingertips then blend with a brush, a few dabs on the brow bone, nose, cupids bow & cheek bones give the perfect fresh glow. We love using the darkest shade as an eyeshadow.

 

 

RMS BEAUTY Lip2Cheek:

Can you see a pattern....we love product that do more than one job! This luxurious pot of cream is nourishing, lasting & gives the perfect fresh, finish to cheeks. Our fave colour is Smile.

 RMS Beauty products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin. If its good enough for Karlie Kloss & Gisele Bundchen....its good enough for us! 

 

LILY LOLO Pressed Eyeshadow:

This pressed powder is highly pigmented making it great to apply lightly for a really natural finish or build up for a more dramatic look. It is infused with jojoba making is hydrating & anti-aging....winning! So many colours to choose from but for an everyday look we love Stark Naked.

 

 

 

ECOBROW Defining Wax- Penelope: 

This brow shade is perfect for brown to medium brown hair. There is a colour to match almost every hair colour in the range. It is sans chemical nasties and uses Vitamin E to nourish the brows while it not only gives brows more definition in colour, it also keeps them in place and doesn't budge throughout the day! The intensity of each shade can be controlled easily with the application — you can go as light or dark as you’d like.

Ecobrow is 100% Natural , Mineral-based, Paraben-free  & is never tested on animals. 

 

LILY LOLO Natural Mascara:

This is a true black mascara that is lash defining, volumising & lenghtening...all the things we want in a mascara. Its also Ophthalmologic Tested making it suitable for sensitive eyes.

Lily Lolo use ingredients that are proven to nourish & protect the skin. The products are fragrance, silicone, alcohol free & vegan friendly.

 

GO TO Pinky Nudey Lips:

Want to nourish, protect & look kissable all at once....we love Pinky Nudey Lips! A dab of the natural colour is all you need to finish off a natural face. And with SPF15 it is a winner!

Go-To use pure, plant derived ingredients, no nasties, not tricks....but most of all its founder is Zoe Foster-Blake....say no more!
