As adults, our opportunity for creativity and play can feel limited. We work hard, we pick up kids from school, we study, commute, sit at computer screens, shop for food, do laundry… the list is endless. Finding small moments in our daily lives that are playful + fun make a big difference! Any kind of expression – painting, drawing, watercolours, dancing, the clothes we wear, gardening, baking or crochet – can help us find a little joy. Makeup is the same; makeup is all about self-expression. Colour, texture, brushes… it’s a little like painting our faces, right? Our range of pencils for lips and eyes are fun, quirky, and colourful. Drawing lines, blending with fingers, it might be the only bit of creativity we get today – but we’ll take it! Explore for yourself and look out for all the tiny ways you can add ‘play’ into your life! Look#1 – Sesame lip liner, Brow pencil and Eye pencil FOREST
Two of the biggest stressors for our skin are the sun, and pollution. We can wear hats and apply SPF for sun protection – protecting against pollution is more complicated. The urban areas we live & work in are usually polluted. Smog from cars, congestion, lack of green spaces all contribute to an environment that is not always skin-friendly. Invisible particles in the air can clog pores, affect skin health and contribute to lines developing. You know when you haven’t binged on junk food or alcohol, you’ve exercised nearly every day and still – you wake up on a Sunday morning with redness or a breakout? Sometimes, pollution is the villain… We can’t do much about the pollution that gets on our skin as we wait for the bus, catch the subway or take a stroll to the neighbourhood park, we can do a lot about getting it off. This is our best defence… remove remove remove!
Ben Dniprowskij began dancing at the age of 3. Born in Melbourne, he discovered his interest in makeup watching all the girls having it applied, but it wasn’t until he developed a skin condition as a teenager that he really discovered the power of makeup. After 6 years of working in a hair salon, Ben decided to become a makeup artist. He learned from YouTube videos and three years later – his achievements included winning the Make Up for Ever Pro contest where he learnt to body paint in Paris, becoming the face of a MAC Cosmetics global campaign, having his work featured in magazines such as Vogue, Schon, The impression and KaltBlut. He then entered a new era where he has become contributing editor of Lauds new magazine endeavor, Laud Unleashed. Ben had found his passion and was living his dream!
Genna Di Giovanna is a makeup artist based in New York. She lives a plant-based lifestyle and uses natural products in all aspects of her life, including beauty, health and clothing. It was an obvious choice for us to mesh this natural way of living with the use of natural cosmetics. She recently tried the Ere Perez skincare and makeup and was inspired to create this “natural blush look”. “First things first, skincare. I used the Australian Blue Cypress Face Nectar on clean skin before any makeup is applied. I really love the way this hydrates the skin. I used this first to get the skin looking lush and dewy. After that I used the Quinoa Water foundation – Haze. This foundation is super light. If you’re the type of person that prefers a sheer foundation, I highly recommend this one. Next up, the Arnica Concealer – Latte. This everyday concealer blends nicely into the skin. For my cheeks the Carrot Colour Pot – Harmony pot gave me just enough colour for a natural blush …
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.

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!

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!
