natural blush

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 …

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

Our efforts to be something we are not affects us physically and emotionally, and can lead to nutritional imbalance, depression and anxiety.
