I just read Chalkboard's Q & A with green makeup artist, Katey Denno and I found myself answering all of the natural beauty questions as I read them. So, I wanted to do my own Q & A...with myself! Yes, there's probably a straight jacket fitting I need to get myself to, but it's fun.
Obsession of the Moment: My Earth Tu Face Eye/Repair Serum. I'd been using another eye cream for a long time, Naturopathica's Vitamin K Eye Cream, which I still love, but started using this after I was sent it for review.
Can't Travel Without: My DeVita Solar Moisturizer in SPF 30 and Solar Body Block SPF 30.
Everyone knows how much I love this stuff. Feels like a lotion, but it's an SPF...using anything else is a total drag...and sticky!
In a Pinch I: I'll use organic Coconut Oil to take off my makeup, to hydrate my hair, to moisturize my body, to hydrate my skin. I find that I wake up with thee most gorgeous skin if I use this all over my face, wipe it off and go to bed.
Always in My Evening Clutch: A pink gloss. I'll use either Sublime by RMS Beauty, Revolution Organics' Truth or Jane Iredale's Sugar Plum. I'm also loving Call Me by Ilia Beauty.
Beautifying Snack/Meal: My morning smoothie: Almond Milk, coconut oil, calcium/magnesium, flax seeds or chia seeds, a banana and berries! Also, good fats - avocado and olive oil.
Beautifying Drink: A tall glass of powdered organic wheatgrass from Amazing Grass. It tastes like someone emptied their lawn mower into your water, but you'll live.
For Ultra-Glamorous Effect: I take my Dr. Hauschka Plum/White Duo Liner and use the white highlighter in the corners of my eyes. I'll also line the inside upper lid with the purple and as the day - or night goes on, it smudges to give a slight smokey eye.
A Perfect Pout: Jane Iredale's Lip & Cheek Stain in Forever Pink with a gloss over it. You can't lose.
Beauty Tool: My Eco-Tools Retractable Foundation Brush. I love this because you can keep it in your bag and it stays clean. I also love it because the aluminum has been recycled.
Weirdest Beauty Habit: Covering my face with plain, fatty yogurt. It leaves my skin so bright and pretty that if I have a date or party, I'm definitely making the time for this before I have to apply my makeup.
In The Shower I Keep: My Preserve Razor, NYL Gentle Sugar Body Polish, Dr. Bronner's Organic Peppermint Shave Gel, SkinnySkinny Rosemary Mint Foot Scrub, Acure Brightening Facial Scrub Sea Kelp, Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner, Sebon Organics Shampoo & Conditioner, Vetiver Rose Sellwood Soap and my own Turbinado sugar and coconut oil body scrub!
On My Bedside Table: S.W. Basics Cocoa Lip Balm, KYI Chamomile Lavender Whipped Shea Butter Mask (I use it for my face and hands) and Badger Foot Balm.
Once A Month I: I put on an exfoliating enzyme mask by Naturopathica's Sweet Cherry Brightening Enzyme Peel just to give my skin a fresh start and follow with my Kahina Argan Oil.
On Little Sleep I Rely On: Amala's Hydrate Treatment Oil to moisturize and my Studio 78 Concealer to cover up any bags...it's my favorite concealer, hands down.
