Eco Beauty

So these are products that I would recommend for a beautiful “natural” glow and great as an everyday look :)  Even better these products are all natural, except the brushes which i believe are a mixture of natural and synthetic hairs.  
So how i apply the makeup is first apply the physican’s formula “100% Natural Origin TInted Moisturizer Spf 15” onto my face in shade “Natural to Tan” [you can get this at Ulta and Walmart & I think Walgreens] which is actually paler than my skin tone right now, but i apply it all over my face bc it slightly masks redness around my nose and slighly lightens up the appearance of my scarring on my face.  Overall it just creates an even skin tone that i can then be creative with by adding color (like with bronzer/blush).  To apply this moisturizer I use the #45 foundation brush from Sephora which says “mineral powder,” but was told it can be used for liquid foundation as well and after having used it, I would definitely agree!  It’s a great foundation brush, love that it’s a round brush so no streaks if you apply in a circular motion and the bristles are tightly packed, so great for coverage.  
Okay so the next step I did to get that glow aka color back into my face I used the Sephora “Pro allover powder” Brush #61 and heavily applied two dabs worth of powder onto the apples of my cheeks.  As for the rest of my face i lightly swept over my chin, jaw, forehead, and nose.  Just make sure it’s not as dark as your cheeks.  As for the powder I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Pressed Mineral Powder Refills in the shade “Honey,” an all natural foundation.  
Therefore is you have two different shades of foundation with one slighly warmer in tone, you can then apply it as a “bronzer” and give yourself a natural glow and look more youthful- aka it gives your face a sexy plumped look ;)  
So all I would recommend after this is have fun picking your shade of lipstick (this is where you can really apply color to your face, but if you want it look natural pick a shade close to your natural lip color &/or a nice shade of berry that could be someone else’s natural shade- don’t worry i won’t tell.  Or perhaps pick a shade of pink that is light but not neon like).  But if you feel like going all out for the lips go ahead, i do it, this is mainly a tutorial for the face to appear natural, so the skin, not the lips and eyes.  Next apply a dramatic mascara look (so do several coats) if you want your eyes to stand out, otherwise just do a light layer to at least help separate them bc the more lashes you appear to have the more awake you look ;)  I usually don’t need to do eyeshadow since i’m trying to do a natural look, but if you so choose, pick soft colors like greys/browns and do a light coating and/or smudge a light layer of eyeshadow so as to give off a subtle smokey eye look- so nothing too dramatic.  
Okay, hope this helps someone and talk to you guys soon! ;)
