My No-Makeup Makeup Look

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I decided to switch to non toxic makeup I started with the makeup I use everyday. I’m not a big elaborate liquid eyeliner-every-day makeup girl. I like a natural makeup look where I look like a rested, prettier and fresh version of myself.

At the beginning, I was skeptical, to say the least. I was married to most of my conventional products and thought I couldn’t live without my concealer, bronzer or mascara. I definitely didn’t imagine a makeup routine without my Nars Orgasm blush. I thought that without it’s shimmer I wouldn’t achieve a glow.

What has happened is far from that.

I’m now hearing compliments I never heard before: “You’re glowing!,” “Your skin looks great!,”You look so rested!.” I love that the natural skincare I started using has my skin at its best, and that my new makeup routine enhances this, instead of hiding it. This makeup’s natural ingredients also contributes to my skin’s healthy look instead of clogging it or drying it up.

The 4 Basics

What it is: This second-skin concealer is effective, blends well and never looks dry or cakey.

Key Info:

  • It is coconut and jojoba oil based so it also hydrates the skin while covering up any imperfections.
  • Because coconut oil is antibacterial, it is great for covering up blemishes and pimples.
  • I use color 22 and it seems to also be a chameleon because it is the color a lot of my friends with different coloring use.

How I use it: 

  • I dab it on with my fingers.
  • I use it on my under-eye circles, blemishes, any scaring or redness.
  • To keep it from moving around in hot weather I always set it with W3ll People’s Realist Invisible Powder.

    I love the Juice Beauty cream blush too! If you like corals, I suggest the shade orange blossom. I thought it might be too orange as the name suggests, but it’s a true coral. I’ve been wanting to try that Lily Lolo bronzer too 🙂

      Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll definitely check out orange blossom! Try it! The good thing about the Lily Lolo bronzer is that it layers well. So you can wear it as subtle or as dramatic as you like.
