“Beauty the natural way, why everybody should be seeking natural, ethical and cruelty free makeup.
I try to have a few no make up days within my week to let my skin breathe and have a break from the congestion in my pores, since discovering quality natural make up and seeking more ethical products, I feel less need to do so, it has been a real eye opener and has made me want to explore the realm of natural beauty products deeper and consider more what I choose to put on my skin and my clients.
It's rare we look at the ingredients in our make up or at least understand what we may be applying to our face and skin. If you haven't looked into and tried any natural make up, I suggest you do! We are conscious of what we put IN our body but less so of what we use ON our bodies. We know our skin is our biggest organ and it needs nutritious goodness and hydration, it helps us look and feel young and fresh faced, I love the fact of knowing your make up is contributing to the goodness! When I got the chance to use Ere Perez's natural make up I couldn't wait to try it out, to see how it looked and felt on my skin.
Using Ere Perez immediately it felt like it was a luxury, the packaging for one, the quality and how it felt on my skin! It was like a lightning bolt moment! Why haven't I been seeking natural sooner?
As a make up artist I follow the beauty trends, my kit is full to the brim of so many different brands and types of make up but there is a smaller section (it is getting bigger though) of Natural make up. Making this transition is absolutely a priority and one I recommend to all.
My favourite pick from the Ere Perez range was the Versatile Vanilla highlighter in Falling star. It's a standout! Highlighter is life! From a day time look to a night time look it gives you the perfect glow and instant radiance, a must in any daily makeup routine!
Application is easy with minimal fuss, using my finger to glide the smooth creamy formula from the round pan (genius) and simply apply on the cheekbones, eyebrow, nose and cupid's bow, exactly where the natural light hits and the highest point of our face. Worn simply for a natural no make up look, for an instant glow or perfectly in the evening with a strong lip and brow! Also looks great as a shimmer on the eyelid and inner corner. So versatile, makes sense why it’s called Versatile Vanilla Highlighter.
Ere Perez natural make up is an accessible, quality and easy to product that gives you that comfort of beauty from the outside in. Ingredients such as Olive oil, avocado oil, and Vitamin E, to name a few, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. (Ingredients you can actually pronounce, which is always a good start!)
Feeling great and knowing about what we are putting on our skin gets a big thumbs up from me."
