In the name of all things love and beauty, keep it simple! February is the universal month of love, and we're sharing our beauty bag game changers for simple rituals with big impact using our favourite cosmetic line! Not only do we love them because of their cosmetics, but becuase they are vegan, non-toxic, crulty-free and sustainable! Look good, Do good, Feel good - now that's a company I can get behind!
I believe that makeup rituals should be kept simple, naturally enhancing rather than creating a mask of product. When asking my clients what their ideal day to day makeup application would be, I often am given words like glowy, natural, soft, quick, and most commonly "I'll take what you're wearing."
I'm here to break down my top 5 steps to give you a fool proof application every time!
Good skin is the best foundation. I like to start with Corpa Flora's Eclat Citrouille Oil and a small amount of Zyderma Claifying cream to hydrate and create a flawless base.
Conceal the small areas to brighen, lighten and camoflage. Spot concealing can hide the small immperfections and brighten up the undereye area to keep your skin appearing fresh all day long.
Use mascara to open up the eye and add demention, it's as simple as that!
Eyebrows to give the face shape. Giving the eyebrows shape can help the face maintain its youthful lifted appearence. Make sure to pick an approriate shade, if you're blonde keep it no more than 2 shades darker than your hair colour and if you're brunette making sure that your eyebrow's are kept 2 shades lighters than
A touch of colour with lipstick. Add a small amount of lipstick to your cheeks for an extra little pop. My go-to shade during any season from Elate is Muse. I love using a neutral shade with hints of copper with my green eyes and olive skintone.
