play with pencils!

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

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!

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 …
