Face Of The Day: Lady In Red

I recently received some new makeup products from three all-natural brands (Modern Minerals Makeup, Genfiore Cosmetics and Red Apple Lipstick) that are all equally amazing and full of clean and pure ingredients. I am excited to showcase the incredible pigment in all three of these brands in this look that I put together. I hope you all enjoy it!

eyeeee

britttt

I only used four brushes (the eyeliner brush is not pictured above) for this entire look all from Modern Minerals Makeup. I am incredibly impressed with the quality of these brushes, they are soft and pack a lot of pigment!

Skin: I started by moisturizing my face with Evanhealy Whipped Shea Olive Leaf and then prepped my face with Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Instant Skin Perfector.

Face & Cheeks: Modern Minerals Light Almond Foundation, Modern Minerals Heaven Blush with Genfiore Cosmetics Hydrasheer Pressed Mineral Blush in the color “Passion Rose” on top and used as a light contour. I used the same brush to apply all of these colors; the Modern Minerals Duo Fiber Skunk Brush.

Eyes: I started by applying Modern Minerals Oasis Eyeshadow (a gorgeous Turquoise + Teal color) all over the lid of my eye using the Duo Fiber Mini Round Brush and then lightly blended the same color into the crease using the Duo Fiber Tapered Blending Brush. To add more of a bright pop of color I applied Genfiore Mineral Pressed Eye Color in Mare Azzurro to the center part of my eyelid, I applied this using my finger because this picks up much more product and gives more pigmentation. To add some light to my inner eyes and browbone I applied Modern Minerals Seychelles Eyeshadow (a light shell pink). To finish the eye look I applied a tiny bit of Genfiore Hydrasheer Cream Eyeliner in Black using the Modern Minerals Duo Fiber Angle Brush to the outer part of my eye.

Lips: I wanted to make my lips stand out but not take away from the dramatic eye color so I decided to use a beautiful raspberry tinted gloss: Red Apple Lipstick Lipgloss in Queen Of Hearts has a wonderful shine to it and it also smells like spearmint!

Green Beauty Makeup Look and Healthy Expectations

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying 2014 so far. I’m back with my first makeup look for 2014!

I wanted to quickly talk about healthy expectations. With the pressure so many of us put on ourselves for New Years Resolutions, let’s each begin with a few important small steps. Changing over just one mainstream makeup item for a new clean product. Drinking an extra glass of water. Having a healthy vitamin packed green smoothie for breakfast to start our day right. Making an honest effort to keep our thinking positive. Smiling and laughing more. Just begin now. You’ll be amazed at what you will have accomplished within just one week.

Now onto the makeup… :)

IMG_9697

Get This Look:

1. I prepped my face with Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Instant Skin Perfector and then applied the new Kjaer Weis Foundation in the color “Like Porcelain”. I started out using the Kjaer Weis Foundation Blush to apply to smaller areas on my face like around my nose and my eyes. I then blended everything out with a damp Beauty Blender.

2. Instead of adding a blush I decided to mix together my RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer and Living Luminizer which created a very subtle warm glow to the cheeks, cheekbones and temples.

3. For the eyes I used the Bdellium Tools Green Bambu Smoky Eye Brush Kit to apply two colors from the Jane Iredale Glamour Eye & Lip Palette and Kjaer Weis Wisdom Eyeshadow. I started with RMS Beauty Living Luminizer as an eyelid primer and base all over the lid using my fingers. I then applied Wisdom (a metallic taupe shimmer) with the 777B Shadow Brush and lightly applied Merlot (a matte eggplant color) to the crease of my eyes with the 781B Crease Brush and blended really well. I then used a 760B Liner Brush to apply the Zuzu Luxe Raven Liquid Liner. Using a liner brush can help to give you a more sturdy line. To make my eyes pop I added Hush (a sheer shimmer pink color) to the inner corners of my eyes using the 716 Smoky Eyeliner Brush. I curled my lashes, applied one coat of Kjaer Weis Mascara and applied EcoTools Eyelashes

4. For my brows I used the Jane Iredale Bitty Brow Kit in the color “Brunette”.

5. For my lips I wanted to use one of my absolute favorite lip products and colors: Kjaer Weis Sensuous Plum Lip Tint - it gives the perfect almost nude plum tint to the lips and I found that W3LL People Paganist Lipgloss in #2 wears very well over top! It adds a warm glow to the plum that is very flattering.

Makeup Look: Divinely Sensuous

IMG_9120xx

I reviewed Kjaer Weis’s Sensuous Plum Lip Tint a few days ago and this is the full look I wore in that review. I am a huge smokey-eye fan but it’s been quite awhile since I actually have dabbled with grey tones. I usually go for more brown colors but lately I am really, really loving grey, dark blue, purple and even black colors for a beautiful smokey eye look.

IMG_9122x

IMG_9108

If you want to see how I achieved this look just read below :)

The Look:

IMG_9143

Face:

I prepped my skin with a moisturizer and then added Christopher Drummond Duo-Phase Concealer in “Fair” on any areas that needed concealing. Next up I contoured my face with RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer.I used my fingers to apply this creamy bronzer first and then blended it out with a contour brush. To add some color to my face, I dabbed Kjaer Weis Desired Glow Cream Blush to the apples of my cheeks using my fingers (this is my favorite way to apply this blush).

Brows:

I filled in my brows using Jane Iredale’s Brow Gel in “Brunette”

Eyes:

I used the Duo-Phase Concealer as a primer for my eyelids (this works really well) and applied a light wash of Kjaer Weis Cloud Nine Eyeshadow (a universally flattering light beam) all over my lid, focusing on the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone. I then applied Kjaer Weis Divine Eyeshadow (a matte smoke graphite grey) all over the lid, staying under the crease. After blending Divine out very well I then added Kjaer Weis Wisdom Eyeshadow (a metallic taupe shimmer) to the crease for added definition. I also applied this on the lower lash line. To add a more dramatic look to the eyes I applied Zuzu Luxe Raven Liquid Eyeliner to the outer third of my upper lash line (this is a good tip if you have small eyes and want to wear liner without making your eyes appear even smaller.) I finished with two coats of Pure Anada Mascara on my lashes.

Lips:

Using a lip brush I applied two layers of Kjaer Weis Sensuous Plum Lip Tint

Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Sensuous Plum

IMG_9056

I can’t get enough of Kjaer Weis. Their packaging, colors and performance are brilliant. While these products are not cheap, they are well worth the money for anyone who appreciates a good beauty product. Although there is truly nothing like their packaging, I do suggest buying refillables which I have been doing for their eye shadows. I just stick them right in my Z-Palette and am good to go! It not only is convenient but it does save you some extra money. This was my first Lip Tint from Kjaer Weis so I decided to get the compact. I have to say it’s the perfect size and is so much fun to carry around in my purse — talk about feeling “special” when you go to touch-up your make up in the bathroom :)

IMG_9073x

*Wearing two layers of Sensuous Plum on my lips (full makeup look coming soon!)*

IMG_9065

IMG_9053

Sensuous Plum is described as “a hint of sensuous plum” and I agree. This color is perfect for daily wear. Although this color can come off looking a bit dark in the photos, it is actually very light but buildable. One layer adds a beautiful sheer plumminess to the lips. I also love that this lip tint is actually moisturizing. I want to try Goddess next!

Ingredients:

icinus communis (castor) seed oil* , caprylic/capric triglyceride, euphobia cerifera (candelilla) wax, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax*, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*, zea mays (corn) starch*, cera alba*, rosa rubiginosa seed oil*, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, gardenia florida fruit extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil*, ammonium glycyrrhizate, tocopheryl acetate, limonene**.may contain +/- :mica, ci 77891, ci 75470, ci 77492, ci 77499, ci 77491,ci 19140,ci 15850.

I got my Kjaer Weis Lip Tint from Eco Diva Beauty for $48. You can also purchase the refillable for $24 (and put it in an empty z-palette or palette of choice!)

Color Combination Love: RMS Beauty “Moment” and Kjaer Weis “Desired Glow”

jkk

*I am wearing Kjaer Weis “Desired Glow” on my cheeks and RMS Beauty “Moment” on my lips. I didn’t want to wear any other makeup (including concealer or foundation) so that the colors in each could show through more appropriately although they are even more beautiful in person!*

Every now and then I find a combination of colors that just mesh together so beautifully. Lately I have been loving wearing RMS Beauty’s Lip Shine in “Moment” on my lips and Kjaer Weis’s Cream Blush in “Desired Glow” on the apples of my cheeks. These two products alone are wonderful, but together are something else entirely. They compliment each other so well that lately it’s been difficult for me to reach for one without the other!

Moment is described as a light rose-brown shine that enhances every lip color.” while Desired Glow is described as a natural deep tan.”

Funny enough I was actually apprehensive about both of these products at first due to their more brownish hues. With having such fair skin I just figured I would not be able to pull them off correctly. Boy was I wrong. In person these two colors make me look more awake even when not wearing a speck of anything else on my skin. I sometimes just curl my lashes, dab some Desired Glow on my cheeks and a little bit of Moment on my lips and am out the door! I absolutely love this combination.

Have you ever tried either of these products? What color combinations are you currently loving?

How To Become a Natural Beauty Warrior

It’s been a little over a year since I began my journey to switching over to all natural & organic products. I can’t believe how far so many of us have come in such a short period of time. I just had to make this post because I firmly believe that; There is no sane reason to subject ourselves to the chemical onslaught that is included in so many  traditional beauty products!  There are so many natural alternatives!

*The 515 Chemicals Women Put on Their Bodies Every Day
chemicals-on-the-body

***

When I saw this incredible info-graphic picture from MindBodyGreen.com I just had to re-blog it (again). In fact I featured this photo on this post over a year ago. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? I wanted to write about it again because sometimes we all get into a rut with buying the same thing over and over again. We need a little push. We don’t take the time to do our research. We are worth it. If we don’t take care of ourselves, then who will?

 

Where To Start?

There is reputable information everywhere to enable to us to make the switch. Start by searching trusted and respected natural and organic beauty blogs and websites. Don’t forget about your local bookstore! Or search on Amazon and read all the reviews and comments for a book that looks informative. No more excuses. Some people hesitate because they feel the natural way is more expensive. It’s clearly not. You can find so many basic food grade beauty ingredients at your grocery store. There are hundreds of tutorials on YouTube that show you exactly “how to”. You can check out my DIY recipes for many different beauty concoctions. Or another of my favorite resources for instructions on DIY beauty is Mountain Rose Herbs.Your body is your temple~ Treat it exquisitely and with tender loving care. Please. I feel so proud to be a part of this “Green Beauty Revolution”. Together we are changing the future of not only our individual health, but our future children. We are also contributing to preserving our precious Mother Earth. Now that’s a cause to be proud of.
 

Take a Stand

We won’t stand for the cancer causing “questionable” ingredients in mainstream “beauty” products any longer. Or their multilevel advertising propaganda. What a waste of money. We are fully aware of the corrupt marketing that companies employ to try and paint their products as healthy. It’s just so unethical. Often I reach for my very worn and dogeared copy of Siobhan O’Connor’s incredible book, “No More Dirty Looks”. It never ceases to inspire me to keep “fighting the fight” toward a healthy and sustainable future for us all. We can choose to make our voices heard through our dollars. The money we spend can speak for us and show support to the brands that we trust and that are in business for our benefit. Support companies you know that combine organic & natural sustainably sourced products with ethical business practices. Many of the small women owned companies that I do business with rely on word of mouth and miniscule advertising budgets. They believe in putting their hard earned dollars into superior efficacious  beauty materials. Clean, organic and sometimes exotic ingredients are sourced by these talented artisans .These are small businesses with integrity. They believe in life affirming principles and the old adage, “Do No Harm”. You read about them here on my blog. They are my go-to companies.

Make The Switch

Remember there is absolutely NO reason for us not to be more conscious about what we are applying to our skin. There is no shortage of highly-pigmented, long-lasting and delicious natural alternatives on the market compared to the chemically laden products we’ve all been so accustomed to using in the past.

Between my reviews, wonderful and informative blogs like Organic Beauty Talk, No More Dirty Looks, The Green Beauty Team, and some of my favorite blogs, there is incredibly useful information and more reasons then ever to make the switch over to non-toxic products.

I hope you will join me. There is power in numbers!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel

IMG_7672x

“Exfoliate and deeply nourish skin with this award-winning formula of Pumpkin Pulp, Enzymes and Fermented Juice. Loaded with antioxidants, this fortifying peel rejuvenates and supports cellular integrity while clearing pores and aiding detoxification. Skin is left feeling incredibly soft, smooth and clean with a renewed healthy glow.

I recently came across this Incredible Pumpkin Peel at my local co-op market and after smelling the tester, I knew I had to have it. I love the smell of Pumpkin and with Fall being here, what better time to bring out a facial treatment like this one? It only takes five minutes for this delicious pumpkin-pie smelling facial peel to leave your skin with a fresh and beautiful glow. You can’t get more fast and effective results than that!

Ingredients: Cucurbita pepo (pumpkin), aqua (water), 7% lactobacillus/cucurbita (pumpkin) ferment extract, glycerin (vegetable), cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) wine, honey, gluconic acid (glucose), aminoguanidine HCL, zingiber officinale (ginger) root oil, ananas sativus (pineapple) stem powder, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) leaf oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, myristica fragrance/parfums (nutmeg) kernel oil, cinnamomum cassia (cinnamon) leaf oil, vanilla planifolia fruit oil, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, lonicera caprifolium (honeysuckle) flower extract, lonicera japonica (honeysuckle) flower extract, alcohol denatured (grain), potassium sorbate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (plant).

This mask works wonderfully at removing dead skin cells, shrinking pores and reducing and preventing acne. I have very sensitive skin and this didn’t irritate me even slightly. I am very happy that I picked this up and will absolutely repurchase after I run out! You can purchase the Incredible Pumpkin Peel here or find at your local Whole Foods Market.

Look Of The Day | Burgundy Bohemian

IMG_7658x

I’ve said it a million times before and I will say it a million times again: Fall is my favorite season. I love to change up the colors I wear and darker lips are definitely in right now. I came up with this really easy vampy look using only a handful of beauty products, a hat and some handmade lotus jewelry. This look is very relaxed (yet glamorous) and easy to achieve. Perfect for day or night. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it! I love darker lips for Fall and have my eye on the limited release of Diabolique from RMS Beauty. I also really want to try Ink Pot from Ilia Beauty. You can’t go wrong with Purple’s and Red’s in Fall!

IMG_7647x

How can you not absolutely love Fall? The leaves, the colors, the feeling in the air…. It’s just perfect.

What I Used For This Look:

photo

Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

I love this tinted moisturizer because it sinks into the skin fast and doesn’t leave over any white cast. It also has just enough coverage.

W3LL People Narcissist Foundation + Concealer Stick

I used this as a concealer under my eyes on redness around my nose.

W3LL People Universalist Stick in “Creamy Peony”

Used on the apples of my cheeks. This is such a flattering shade for any skin tone. Adds the perfect amount of flush to the cheeks.

RMS Beauty Cream Shadows in “Seduce” and “Magnetic”

I used Seduce (an earthy brown) all over the lid and up to the browbone and blended out. I then added Magnetic (a taupe/silver shadow with a hint of mauve) on the inner part of my lid and to the outer crease. I like to apply these cream shadows with my fingers first and then lightly blend with a fluffy brush.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

I keep finding more uses for this product. For this look I used Living Luminizer in the inner corners of both eyes and right underneath my browbone. I also added a tiny bit down the bridge of my nose and at the highest part of my cheeks to add a beautiful glow.

MAC Brow Set in Show-Off

Definitely -not- natural in any way but a very good eyebrow product. This is a gel that is easy to brush on and literally makes your eyebrows stay in place all day. I have yet to find a natural dupe for this or for Anastasia Brow products but am on the hunt!

Burt’s Bees Lipgloss in “Starry Night”

I am very much impressed with these lipglosses. This color is so gorgeous, especially for Fall. It has subtle shimmer and is very build-able.

MY REVIEW:

Narcissist Foundation + Concealer Stick in “#1, Fair Pink“:

file_5_11This is definitely my favorite product from the entire line and the one that stands out to me the most as I cannot imagine how I ever lived without it. I am so in love with this foundation that also doubles as a concealer and works perfectly at covering redness, blemishes and dark circles. The formulation of this is absolute perfection and what I have been looking for all of my life. I love to let my skin breathe and I do not like full-coverage foundations. This foundation will not cover up every single thing on your face, which if you ask me, you should never try to do. It lets my freckles shine through and makes me look like I am not wearing any makeup at all but yet evens out my skin tone and makes me feel super confident wearing. Ever since I have been wearing this foundation I have gotten multiple comments about how “luminous” my skin looks. The consistency is very creamy and is really easy to blend into the skin with fingers or foundation brush of choice. It melts into the skin and gives it the most beautiful fresh, healthy and natural glow.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Silica, Castor Isostearate Beeswax Succi- nate **, Mica (CI 77019), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil (and) Organic Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe) Extract, Lysine, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Pro- prietary Essential Oil blend, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*, Roman Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile)** [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499)]

Universalist Matte Multi-Use Color Stick in “#7, Creamy Peony“:

3562I hear many people raving about how they have found their “perfect blush” and I can honestly say I have found mine. This color is literally the most flattering blush for my skin tone. It adds a very natural rose tint to my cheeks without ever looking like I have any blush on at all (so far all of the products I am reviewing really don’t even feel like makeup at all. it’s amazing). It goes on creamy and stays on all day. It doesn’t contain any shimmer and it is also great to use on the eyelids and lips!

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Bees- wax), Silica, Mica (CI 77019), Olea europaea (Olive Oil)*, Castor Isostearate Beeswax Succinate **, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Mica (CI 77019), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil (and) Organic Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe) Extract, Essential Oil blend, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Lysine, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*, Roman An- themis Nobilis (Chamomile)* [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Carmine (CI 75470), Manganese Violet (CI 77742)]

Hedonist Luminous Mineral Bronzer in “#52, Medium“:

file_5_2The shade I received is medium and I was a little worried that it would be too dark as I am so fair but this color is beautiful, especially for the summer months when my skin is a tiny bit darker than normal. It works wonders as a contour and as an all-over bronzer that looks natural. I definitely will be purchasing the lightest shade for the winter months and to also use with the medium to blend together and make the perfect color for special occasions. This is now my favorite bronzer to use every day and I have never been a big bronzer girl because it’s hard to find any that don’t make me look orange! I love this stuff!

Ingredients: Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide. May contain Ultramarine Blue, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Organic Aloe Barbadenis Powder (Aloe)*, Matricaria recutita (Chamomile)**, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*

Nudist ColorBalm Stick in “#8, Poppy“:

file_10This lip color is GORGEOUS. It smells like peppermint and gives the lips an extra pouty-ness. The color is sheer but buildable. It goes on beautifully and feels like a lip balm and lip gloss combined. I am in love with this color and the formulation of these and must try more!

Ingredients: Castor Oil*, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Castor Isostearate Beeswax Succinate **, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordii Oil Copolymer, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil (and) Organic Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe) Extract, Mica (CI 77019),Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) oil, Vanilla flavor, Lysine, Stevia Rebaudiana (Stevia) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*, Roman Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile)* [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891),Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742)]

Final Thoughts:

I am so impressed with this line that I am already looking at more products to try out from the line. I have found my favorite foundation, blush and bronzer and I truly love each and every product I have tried so far. I also wanted to give mention to the Elitist Shimmer Mineral Shadow in “2010, Pink Champagne and the Hypnotist Natural Mineral Eyeliner .  The shadow is such a beautiful every day lid color. This has some glitter in it but it doesn’t seem to fall all over the place and it lasts on the lid very well throughout the day. It’s beautiful as an inner corner hightlight as well as using all over the lid or on top of other shadows. It’s also beautiful for using on the cheekbones for an extra pop of highlight and color! The eyeliner is very pigmented and creamy. It does smudge on me but not for at least 4 hours and even then it’s not horrible smudging that can’t be easily fixed with my fingers or a q-tip. The ingredients in this liner are wonderful and don’t irritate my sensitive eyes at all. I think this would be the perfect eyeliner for anyone who has sensitive eyes or who is scared of wearing really black liner as it’s easy to apply and to blend without ever looking too harsh.

Where To Buy:

You can purchase all of these products mentioned and more on the W3LL People site. You can also buy sample sizes to try out a bunch of different colors to find what suits your style! W3LL People are also sold on Spirit Beauty Lounge where they also offer sample sizes!

Face Of The Day | Sunset Eyes and Pink Lips

IMG_4675vdd

This eyeshadow combination reminded me of a beautiful sunset. I used a gold/orange cream shadow from 100% Pure called “Belize” all over my lid and then blended it with the blush I used on my cheeks. I am obsessed with the blush I used in this look called “Nymph” from Zuzu Luxe. It is truly the most beautiful shade of pink with an almost lilac iridescent shimmer that doubles as both a blush and a highlighter (and eyeshadow!).

I also used the blush as a transition eyeshadow on the crease of my eyelids which is a tried and true trick of mine. Try adding your blush to your shadows and you will see that it adds a beautiful natural glow to the eyes and face. I did a thick line of gel eyeliner and winged it out slightly at the end for a more dramatic look using my favorite gel liner from 100% Pure. This stuff stays put and glides on beautifully! For my lips I used two colors – Love & Toast Lip Glaze in “Misbehavin’” and Revolution Organics in “Blushed” which created a vibrant fuchsia color that is really flattering for day or night.
