Are you new to clean beauty? Well let us take you on a journey, a wildcrafted one, full of blooming flowers, fruits and botanicals. Soak your skin in the eco-luxury of Bodhi & Birch for a full scented body experience. Here we used Bodhi & Birch Sicilian Rose Body Oil, an organic oil fragrant with roses, geranium and juicy lemons. It gives a beautiful sheen to the skin whilst hydrating it packed with antioxidants. If you prefer a different flavour we highly recommend Weleda Pomegranate Body Oil. Created with biodynamic -and organic- pomegranate seed oil that brims with antioxidants, helps skin renewal, protects and firms skin. Great for dry or mature skin.
With a cult following, Neal’s Yard Remedies Rose Beauty Balm cleanses and hydrates skin, making it multi-purpose for all skintypes. This organic balm rebalances and soothes without leaving any residue. Remove it with a damp hot flannel when you use it as a cleanser. Next we used Therapi Rose Otto Toner made with precious organic rose otto water it refreshes, tones and hydrates skin. We followed with Madara Superseed Facial Oil, as the name suggests it is super nutrition for dry, irritated and dehydrated skin. Full with omega 3 and 6, seabuckthorn, rosehip, advocado and evening primrose it regenerates without leaving any residue. For lips we used Tata Harper Be Adored Lip Treatment, which uses date palm to boost collagen production, rhubarb, acai and green tea antioxidant to protect your lips. It is available in clear and a rosey tint.
For a dewy finish we love Vapour Soft Focus Foundation (s135). We used Ilia's Powder brush to add a light base to illuminate the skin and keeping it fresh and modern. Also try RMS 'Un' Cover (44), formulated with raw organic coconut oil and jojoba oil. This is best applied with your fingers to blend into the skin, especially in colder temperatures when the coconut oil hardens. For a natural, healthy finish try Vapour Luminous Foundation, formulated for any skin type it gives a medium cover in pale to dark shades. Made with organic ingredients, frankincense, tulsie and lotus, it helps to soothe, calm and protect.
To conceal we used Hynt Beauty Concealer (Tan) which is hands down the best pigmented, finely milled natural concealer. A little goes a long way, so go easy with it. We applied it with a W3ll People brush and then blended it in with the warmth of our fingers.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush (Happy) was used on the top eyelids for a pop of pink. Made with certified organic jojoba, beeswax and gardenia florida as a natural preservative. To add impact and gloss we layered Gressa Skin Lumiere Fluid (Elise) a hot pink lip and cheek fluid made with broccoli seed oil -nature's silicone-, rosehip and seabuckthorn.
Dab a little Hynt Duet Concealer on the lips and blot with a tissue.
Next we applied Absolution Lipstick (Rouge Bordeaux) with a lip brush for definition.
For a longer hold -and to prevent any 'bleeding'- apply OCC Lip Liner (NFSW True Red) prior to lipstick. It is vegan and plant-based, with some synthetic colouring to give it a strong pigment. To make the lip a brighter red you could finish with OCC Lip Tar (NFSW), it is a vegan true red liquid lipstick with a bit of a gloss.
