What? No make up make up :D? Yes, what I mean is that I use make up every day, but I do not look like wearing a lot of make up. I prefer looking natural instead of “perfect” and I thought you could be intersted in seeing what kind of products I use on a daily basis. Like with all my content, all products are natural cosmetic products, coming from fair and pretty much sustainable brands.
I do not use all of these products every day, and often I only go with some blush and my eye brow pencil. But for when I want a little more, without looking like too much, I like to put this make up on.
So blush and eyebrow pencil are the two products I ALWAYS use, every single day. When I put on a little more than it is usually either a berry tone lipstick or some mascara. I am not one of those who absolutely needs to wear mascara. I like my eyes even though they are small and even though I have those suprt short lashes so mascara isn’t a must for me.
Finally, when I have those two extra minutes in the morning (which I usually do not have) then I like to use eyeliner. And I jsut recently found my favorite ever! More below…
So in general the products I need for my daily make up routine are: eyebrow pencil, blush, mascara, lipstick, eyeliner.
Oh and a base of course! I use either nothing at all or a bb cream. It needs to be super light and I don’t like it when I actually feel that I put something on my skin. I use a face oil below the bb cream and that’s all. Sure, you can still see impurities and stuff, but you know what? That’s just part of me and I do not feel comfortable with wearing a mask that is hiding parts of me 😉
So the products I am currently using are the following.
Base first. I currently use either of these two products:
Provida BWC Edition Bio-Make-Up LIGHT. This is called make up but absolutely feels like a BB cream. It is super light and I like it because it has a natural sun protection.
Veg-Up BB cream. Leaves me with a nice soft skin that looks absolutely natural. It has a high amount of Vitamin E which protects from damage and premature aging.
As blush I currently use either:
Couleur Caramel Blush Stick. This one is perfect for travelling but also on every other occasion. I have a thing for blush sticks and this one is among the best I’ve ever tried. Super soft and nice on the skin!
Benecos Natural Fresh Bronzing Duo. I love the combination of rose and brown. It give the most natural effect and it’s super mattiyfing (which the blush stick is less). So always depending on what I want that day, I choose either the stick or this powder blush.
For my eyes I currently use:
Benecos Eyebrow Pencil. This was the first eyebrow pencil I tried back in the days and I sticked to it. I never really used another one, to be honest 😀
Couleur Caramel Eyeshadow – which I use as eyeliner. So this is an eyeshadow but to me it is THE BEST eyeliner I have ever had. The dark brown color with a little shimmery effect is just perfect for an all natural look. It’s really easy to apply with a eyeliner brush and is the most long lasting natural eyeliner I have ever had! I made a post about eyeliners back HERE and all of the ones I tried where okay back then. But this one is better! Really it is. I wouldn’t use this as an eyeshadow because it is way too dark for my natural style, but as an eyeliner it simply is perfect.
I will be honest… for my lips I use a ton of different lip sticks! I have quite a few and love most of them. I love dark berry tones and wear them a lot, but for this post I decided to share two options with you that go really well with an all natural look.
Welda Lip Balm Rose this one is for a more glowy finish. Very natural, very nice on the lips, and very nourishing.
Logona Lipstick Rose. To me, this one is like a lip balm too. It feels super nice on the lips and it is nourishing and rich. Maybe you can tell from the picture below how creamy it is!?
From left to right:
Eyebrow pencil – benecos
Eyeshadow that I use as eyeliner – couleur caramel
Rouge stick – couleur caramel
Lipstick – logona
BB cream – provida
And just a close up of the couleur caramel eyeshadow. Not because I was paid for it but because I this product really surprised me. As I wrote above, I never had a that longlasting eyeliner! And since the product is really big I am sure it will pretty much last forever. In case you like some darker eyeshadow every now and then, this product is even better: since it is an eyeshadow! So you could use it as an eyeshadow and eyeliner, depending on your mood.
Now you know all about my easy and all natural no-make-up-make-up 😀
When you are into natural looks as well, then I think all natural cosmetics are a must for you! I haven’t used conventional cosmetics in over ten years so I cannot really say about how they work, but natural cosmetics really work so well for natural beautiful looks. Plus they aren’t harming your skin (and system by entering in the blood stream throug your skin) or the environment (no chemicals that ends up in the ground water), or animals (many conventional products are tested on animals), or humans (workforce). Please do me the favor and think twice before choosing a conventional product the next time you go out shopping for beauty products. Would you ;)?
