matchy matchy

Sometimes it’s fun to match! We match our shoes and handbags on special occasions, earrings with necklaces. Even a beach towel and bikini. How about eyes and lips? Pairing eyeshades with a matching lip colour is a great way to create a seamless look. It’s not always about finding the exact same shade of eyeshadow and lipstick – it’s more about finding complimentary colours that go together. A bit of this + a bit of that = perfection! We’ve broken down 2 looks to show you which beauties from our range to choose to create Andrea’s looks for yourself… Look #1 – light terracotta + ruby red

natural lips

Are you looking for an amazing natural lipstick? We promise ours is the best! We use hydrating olive oil in a rich formula that gives vibrant long-lasting colour. Won’t leave your lips dry or flaking – and most importantly, you’re not swallowing a dose of toxins when you wear it. did you know… Lipstick doesn’t just evaporate – it gets smudged off or eaten! Studies show that on average, women ingest between 1.5kg – 4kgs of lipstick in a lifetime. Of course, this depends on how much lipstick they wear and how often, but that’s a pretty scary fact when you consider the ingredients in most traditional lipstick formulas. Even the big cosmetic brands can pump their lipsticks with heavy metals, parabens and other undesirables. natural lipstick – hooray!

easy beauty

By now we have kick-started 2019 and are getting back into the swing of things. Life has returned to normal, after the holidays. For many, the year has begun with a bang as people juggle work, family, diet & exercise. Who has time for long and complicated beauty routines? We love Ere Perez products because they are no-fuss and easy to use. You don’t have to be an expert to look good! We have created 2 great looks that are quick and simple to do. For when you’re running out of time in the morning, or have to change after work for an evening event, these looks will save you. The mirror is our friend, but in moderation. There are more fun things to do than spend hours staring into it!

lipstick love

February is the month of love. Why? Ask St. Valentine! We are celebrating love in all forms. Lips are a very sensual part of our bodies, especially because we use them for kissing! We are reminding ourselves – and all of you – that your lips deserve love, regardless of who is/isn’t kissing them. Sometimes we can get into the habit of saving lipstick only for date night. Or putting it on as a way of impressing someone, or grabbing a certain person’s attention. What if, in February, we love our lips, just for us? Lips are our smile, part of our enjoyment of delicious drinks and yummy food. They show our emotions and help us talk and sing! There are many ways to show your lips some love: use a lip sugar scrub to remove dead skin, apply our cranberry lip & eye cream at night to hydrate, remember your lip balm when you leave the house! The more you look after your lips, the better they will be when you apply lipstick. Most …

new year shine

It’s 2019 and we are ready for awesomeness! January is the perfect time to vision all we want to accomplish for the year. If you are feeling a little sluggish after a long holiday + festive season, or maybe like your skin has had too much sun, snow or too many parties – focusing on detoxing, eating clean food, plenty of water plus early nights. It’s the recipe to get your glow back. That’s the inside. Now for the outside! We can’t go past a highlighter to bring in the new year, keep the holiday feels rolling, and also to shimmer to the office because, let’s face it, for January, we’d all rather be on a beach somewhere! Highlighter is the perfect way to remind yourself of all the exciting things 2019 will bring, of the dreams that will blossom and the moments that’ll leave us breathless. The lovely Ingrid shows us how it’s done…

here comes the sun

It’s the start of summer in the southern hemisphere. Think long days, balmy nights, endless swimming and lots of sun! We love summer, it’s a big part of the Australian lifestyle. Bring on beach days, salty skin and vegan ice cream. Tropical heat is amazing when our winter bodies first start to warm up, but some days are just too hot (and sweaty!) Beach umbrellas & hats are essential, sandals come out to play and no way do we want to spend hours blow-drying hair.

party eyes

It’s been a long year and finally – holidays are here! We wish everyone a happy and restful festive time with family and friends. To celebrate, we are getting glammed up! Most of the time, daily makeup routines consist of foundation, bronzer or blush, colour on the lips and mascara. This certainly is my daily look. For the silly season though, I want to go all out. I don’t usually focus on my eyes, and this year, I want to highlight them, add a bit more drama and make my eyes stand out. Our friend Regina has similar hair and complexion, and we used her natural beauty as the perfect palette to try out a look that’s all about the eyes. If you don’t normally wear a lot of eye makeup, this is the perfect tutorial to let your eyes sparkle. For festive dinners, celebrations and parties, this is your look!

makeup your way

Some days you wear lip balm and a smile, your gorgeous freckles shine through. Other days, you want a full face of makeup. We are all so unique, our moods change and one of the great things about makeup is how it allows us to express our personality and how we are feeling. Anyone who says makeup isn’t creative, isn’t thinking about it in the right way! How we dress, how we style our hair and what we put on our faces is a way that we show who we are in the world. Some days you want to hide, some days you feel that happy glow. Some days you frown, others you are on top of the world. As the saying goes – there’s a lipstick to match that mood! Our oat milk foundation is for luxurious full coverage, for when you want a little extra on your skin. It comes in 6 awesomely wearable shades: Latte, Honey, Chai, Caramel, Brew, Mocha. Get yours! At the end of a long day, wipe it all …

make it minimal

We like quick fixes, no-fuss and multi-tasking products… For busy days, early mornings and long days – we want easy makeup rituals that save time. We want that extra ten minutes of hitting the snooze button on cold mornings, drinking tea and reading a magazine before work, snuggling with the cat before racing to the train. We are all about moments that count & finding solutions that give us more of the good things in life. Two of our best versatile beauties feature in these looks. Carrot colour pots & ginkgo micellar water!  Ingrid from Norway shows us how it’s done.

no reason to be perfect

Rebekah Lidstone is a professional Makeup artist working in the fashion/celebrity industry. She’s inspired by making her clients feel their most beautiful selves, not through makeup but by being enough with or without it. Focusing on nourishing the skin with natural products and face massage.  “The reasons I enjoy making people up come from the reactions of my clients… To draw out their inner beauty. I honestly believe everyone is just as beautiful without makeup, I never want to take away the things that make us who we are. Like freckles and beauty spots, even scars are beautiful. They tell a story of our life and I like to work with products that embody this feeling.
