Natural & Organic make up round up

The natural & organic make up products that I use & love.

I use these brands as I choose to use cruelty free, natural, organic, chemical free skincare & cosmetics.

My Products

🍄 Living Nature Black eyeliner – I got mine from Health 2000

🍄 Inika certified organic brunette brow pencil

🍄 Miessence porcelain translucent liquid foundation – light coverage can be used like a B.B. cream too. I find it builds up well with the concealer – for dark under eye etc & then powder to set.

🍄 Miessence concealer in two shades – one darker shade for contouring and one the same colour as my foundation. I use the lighter one under my eyes, brow bone & along the bridge of my nose and up between brows to forehead

🍄 Miessence blush in ginger blossom – I don’t use this a lot. When I do I only need a touch.

🍄 Miessence mascara – not waterproof but I find it really good unless you cry. And it’s organic of course. ( they’ve taken the mascara offline at the moment 😢)

🍄 Miessence translucent powder – to set my foundation

🍄 World organics – the organic skin co eyeshadows. I have two pallets – Espresso Love (left) & Twilight Star (right). The packaging is bamboo with the metal insets with the powder inside. I wasn’t 100 on the ingredients but I had looked for an eyeshadow for so long that it was the best I’d come across in the natural realm.

🍄Miessence bronzer – I use this sometimes like a contour round the ‘3’ and under my jawline.

🍄 Karen Murrell Red lipstick – number 12 Rymba Rhythm. I got mine at Health 2000.

I’ve been using Miessence for 10 years now, I love the products & ethical heart of the brand. Love that it was started by a mama concerned about chemicals.

What’s your favourite natural makeup product & brand? Always looking for options.

Much love

Fair trade revolution – a word from a farmer

fairtrade

“In the past, all of the trees were cut down so that the planes could fly overhead and drop the fungicides on the banana plants. We used a lot of pesticides and insecticides and lost the wildlife and insects. It was terrible because we were interrupting lifecycles and affecting the whole ecosystem. Our health also suffered. I used to have problems breathing, aches and pains and marks on my skin. Everything changed for us when we entered El Guabo. Fairtrade bans most of the agrochemicals and moves toward organic production. Since we became fully organic we have felt it financially because we used to produce 1,500 boxes of bananas a week but now we only produce around 900 boxes. I think consumers should know this and appreciate that it really is worth them paying a bit more for organic bananas. For me it is worth sacrifices though because I live a healthy life here with my family. I also think Ecuador should be looked upon as the lungs of the Earth. We have the Amazon rainforest, the mountains and most people here live off the land.  If more consumers are willing to buy organic and Fairtrade bananas, then the impact we have here on the environment would be less and people would be able to live more easily.”
