Get the look
This is all about creating a neutral, natural palette so that your eyes can take the spotlight!
Start with a fresh face that has been cleansed and moisturised. Apply rice powder blush – my blush using our expert eco vegan blush & bronzer brush. This powder gives healthy natural colour to the face when applied all over the face in a light dusting, with extra emphasis to the cheeks. Carrot cheek & lip balm – healthy continues the theme of neutral natural colour, dab on the lips and on the apples of the cheeks and blend. Now your complexion is the perfect tone to add some definition to your eyes. Begin with grooming the eyebrows to frame your face using the almond oil eyebrow pencil to fill in any gaps.
Using the eco vegan eye brush, apply rice powder blush – my blush in the crease of the eyes, then use your finger to apply a thin layer of versatile vanilla highlighter – falling star along the upper eyelid.
Next, the sunflower oil mascara – brown, applied to top and bottom eye lashes. The brown will pick up the colour in your eyes. In addition, use the aloe vera gel mascara – clear as a second coat of mascara to add healthy lustre and shine. This mascara works wonders on the brows as well with one coast of the clear mascara to set your look.
You’ll notice how bright and light your eyes are.
Wear with clean, relaxed hair and enjoy the day.
