I used to wear make up all the time but not so much any more. I really only wear make up for special occasions – as much as I love make up, expressing myself with different looks and being creative, I just don’t feel it’s justified for quick trips to the post office or walking the dogs. That being said, I really love trying new products or having an excuse to play with make up!
I mostly only use two brands of make up these days – Neals Yard Remedies and Urban Decay. Since my skin started breaking out last year and I’ve finally managed to get it mostly under control (read how here), natural, light makeup is my priority and using products that aren’t filled with chemicals and nasties is really important to me.
Neals Yard Remedies sell a great range of products, all ethical, organic and cruelty free and as foundation goes all over your face, NYR is a must for me. Urban Decay also pride themselves on cruelty free products, so I use a combination of both brands in my makeup brands.
The products I use for the look below are:
Neals Yard Remedies – Light Warm Mineral Foundation
Neals Yard Remedies – Lengthening Black Mascara
Urban Decay – Naked Skin Beauty Balm Primer
Urban Decay – Half Baked Eyeshadow
Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide on Double Eye Pencil in Naked 2
