Natural Makeup Update - Summer 09.
Green goddesses, it’s time to have a close look at your make-up as the new Summer 09 season is officially here and it’s the ideal time for a makeup update. We have been searching for the ultimate trends and testing the latest organic beauty products to help you choose only the best for this season. And here we go….
Bold lips are the biggest makeup trend this season. Winter was all about eyes and this season is about lips. If there’s one thing you do this season, it is to load your lips with colour. Statement lips were all over the catwalks with brilliant shades from tangerine and orange, to glossy corals and reds to dark rich chocolate browns.
Our natural lipsticks contain nourishing oils like jojoba, minerals and vitamins that make blending easy and replace artificial preservatives and petrochemicals. The latest formulas have a staying powder to rival that of its conventional counterparts. We love Suki Color Lip & Cheek Stain (£21.49) in Vermillion which is very durable and is best applied with a brush. For strong color with easy application, the Elysambre Organic Lipstick (£13.61) in Matte Carmine Pink Red is just perfect for summer.
If you are a lip gloss fan, you can still be on trend by choosing playful pinks, coral, raspberry red or strong fuchsia. We love the pigment-rich and hot pink gloss of Nvey Eco Lip Lustre (£15.95) in Temptress. For everyday shine, Living Nature Lipgloss in Berry Essence will give you lips a hint of delicious burgundy colour.
Complete your look but keeping eye makeup to a minimum. Define lashes lightly with soft eyeliner and mascara so attention is only brought to your lips. Lavera Natural Mascara (£10.70) and Lavera Natural Eyeliner Pencil (£6.12) are gentle on your eyes and are available on a number of shades to suit your complexion.
