Natural Beauty: My Daily Face

Leave a comment

For my day to day I keep my look very clean and basic.  I have very sensitive skin and try to keep my skin care and makeup products as non toxic and natural as possible.  Plus, chemicals are just not something I want to permeate into my system through the largest organ in my body, my skin. Gross. I never wear foundation except for on photo shoots and use concealer to hide dark circles or blemishes and finish the look off with a bit of powder.   I have been using the products below for three years now.  I absolutely love them.

I love the Korres line of makeup because they are formulated without all these toxic ingredients :

– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

 

Concealer

Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Concealer – $22

I love that the concealer comes in a little pot.  Easy to apply with a finger tip or concealer brush.  Great coverage without looking like you have makeup painted on your face.  Plus, it has anti-aging and anti-wrinkle ingredients!  What woman doesn’t love that?

Powder

Provocateur Mineral Pressed Powder SPF 8 – $30

Great light coverage, takes away shine, but let’s my freckles show through!  I hate when makeup hides my freckles.  No makeup mask for me.

The powder is formulated without:

-parabens
-sulfates
-synthetic fragrances
-synthetic dyes
-petro-chemicals
-phthalates

Mascara

Korres Deep Colour Mascara in Black – $18

I absolutely love this mascara.  It’s not waterproof, but I don’t like waterproof mascara anyway.  Great lasting power, doesn’t flake, ever.   Nice full brush for getting each lash covered and it gives the illusion of longer lashes.   Other mascaras make my eyes itchy, but I’ve never had a problem with this one.

Tinted Lip Gloss

Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose – $12

This gloss has just enough color to add pizzazz and polish to my look without looking made up.   No staying power, it’s just a lip gloss and wears off pretty fast.  It’s not sticky though!
