Natural Beauty, Redefined a peek into our makeup bag
Our makeup bag is stocked with dozens of healthy products but here are some of our favorites.
While running around the city from yoga to soul cycle classes, we rarely have the time to put on makeup. So when we do get the chance to bring out our dewy cheeks, red lips and elegant lashes, we want to feel nourished by products that we can full-heartedly trust!
With the power to express ourselves freely comes great responsibility, and in the beauty world, this expression can often drags along many unwanted and dangerous chemicals. We love beauty products that feel deliciously indulgent and luxurious, but our most important requirement for choosing products is ensuring they are without parabens, petro-chemicals, artificial fragrances, sulfates or chemicals.
Almost 80 percent of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies.
The skin is the largest organ of our body, and it is permeable! Almost 80 percent of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies. It works the other way around, too. The skin is meant to excrete toxins, but if it’s clogged up with chemicals, this natural healing becomes hard to do.
Simply put, if the product isn’t made of all organic, natural occurring ingredients, it isn’t good for us. Most products have never been regulated and most companies are NOT being honest about their ingredients when they put “natural” on their labels.
It takes a special company to favor fair trade practices, animal kindness, sustainably harvested ingredients and eco-friendly packaging. We feel good when we are kind to our bodies and to our very precious Mother Earth!
So, instead of using products loaded with ingredients we cannot pronounce, we need keep our skin naturally gorgeous by using plant-based oils and extracts to condition, purify and nourish as they enhance our inner (and outer) goddess.
Our makeup bag is stocked with dozens of healthy products.
Here are some of our favorites:
Raw.Skin.Ceuticals SPF20 B.B. Matte Crème Foundation
Running around the city all day can be exhausting, and our skin definitely feels exhausted, too, thanks to the unavoidable pollution, dirt and dust picked up while commuting in the subways and walking down busy streets.
When we protect our faces using this multi-purpose solution, we can rest assured that we have uva/uvb protection and a shield against toxins and bacteria.
Bonus points: Raw.Skin.Ceuticals’ locally sourced, fair trade products are 100% mica free, talc free, silica free, bismuth free, fragrance free, chemical free, pesticide free and cruelty free!
Painted Earth’s Perfect Every Thyme Baked Mineral Foundation
This silky, soft skincare infused foundation blends beautifully, creating a flawless complexion and even skin tone and texture, all while allowing our skin to BREATHE. It creates the perfect balance by minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines while creating a natural “no make-up” finish! An added bonus: this foundation is infused with Jojoba, Safflower, Lavandula, Thyme, Green Tea, Vitamin E, Rosemary, Magnolia bark extract and it is free of chemicals and artificial fragrances; it is great for sensitive skin!
Josie Maran Argan Cream Blush
Why we love it: one of its main ingredients is avocado! Its flax seed, jojoba seed and avocado oil will give the face a dewy, plant-based glow. 100% Pure Argan Oil makes this gorgeous cream blush weightless, absorbent and beautifully blendable. When people ask why you look so radiant, just smile like the cat that got into the cream.
Josie Maran Argan Eyeshadow Quad
We love our makeup bag to be light yet still have options to go from day to night, especially since we’re usually on-the-go from the wee hours until the later evening. This Eye shadow Quad is a dynamic palette of four luscious shades and because it is infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil, it goes on silky smooth and lasts long. Hello, gorgeous smoky eyes!
Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara
This Argan Black Oil Mascara is a fusion of Argan Oil, bamboo and blackest black iron mineral pigments inspired by the Ancient Egyptians, the original makeup artists! It’s a healthy, good-for-you formula with serious performance – the brush does a wonderful job of catching even baby lashes without clumping everything together. It helps us to feel sexy, confident and open to the world in just one swipe!
