As most people who know me well can attest, I don’t wear makeup every day. I work pretty hard at keeping my skin looking good (mostly by eating well and getting lots of sleep and secondarily by using only superpure and natural cleansers and oils), so I don’t really want or need to add anything. It helps that I have naturally strong features of course!
But fashion week is….fashion week. Going totally barefaced seemed a little disrespectful in some way to all those hard-working make-up artists (some of whom I know!). So I decided to break out of my no-makeup shell and try two different natural beauty looks. They are still somewhat minimal (hey, that’s the kind of lady I am!) but I felt really good about them, like I was true to myself and also had a little fun. I’ve detailed all the lovely products I used, in case you are interested!
Eyes: Origins GinZing mascara in Black ; Zosimos Botanicals Eyeliner in Cornflower (to lift some dark circles I had going on from being up too late the night before, I used Sircuit’s amazing White Out)
Scent: My own mix of Sweet Orange (2 parts) and Sandalwood (1 part) 100% Pure Essential Oils from Aura Cacia For a totally different look for the launch party of the Textile Arts Center’s shop opening party later that night, I pulled my hair up into a topknot, and washed my face.
Scent: LURK bs003
In case you are wondering who gave me that awesome blonde chunk in my hair, it was the amazing Jane Webb at Grace Heaven Organic Salon in the East Village.
