make up or not

To makeup or not to makeup? It’s totally up to you! Our relationship to makeup is personal – it can change over time or stay consistent for decades. Some women prefer neutrals, while others experiment with vibrant colours. Our makeup routine can reflect how we are feeling, be used to change how we feel or be an outlet for creativity. You can love wearing makeup daily or only on special occasions – either way, we want you to LOVE your skin, how it feels and how it looks in the mirror. We celebrate skin with makeup on it, and skin without. We want you to feel great when you are all made up for an event, and when you are bare-faced and casually dressed. We love bright lipstick with old jeans, and cocktail dresses with barely-there makeup. In our world – anything goes. look #1: BEAUTY This could be for home only, a NYE party or heading off to yoga. It’s a guaranteed natural glow!

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 …

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.
