I am going to write a little bit more on Wednesday about my love for all things organic, but I have not posted much except about giveaways, so I thought I would go ahead and post a little bit about makeup.
The very first makeup I bought was mineral makeup from my local Rainbow Blossom most of which was on sale (which is why it first caught my eye); I was starting to become really interested in organic stuff then because of my acne. I had not been interested in wearing makeup (and I don’t think my parents wanted me to wear makeup) when I was in high school. I was 19 or 20 when I bought this makeup, but I did not start regularly wearing it for some months after I had bought it.
I was quite the amateur in my choices, but I also was in the sale basket, so I suppose that can be some excuse. I bought powder that was way too orange for my skin tone and dark blue and orange-gold eye shadows (I have blue eyes and although I am technically a brunette, I need to have the colors of a blond). Those were my worst choices. I also had silver sparkly eyeshadow which would have been okay had I not worn it so heavily; my mom sometimes made me wipe it off. The mascara was my favorite thing, and it definitely made me feel much better about myself when wearing it, so I got hooked. Now I wear mascara whenever I am around people even if we are just going to the park with friends.
I was given Mary Kay a few months ago which I know would thrill many women exceedingly, and I have used it, but I feel very strongly about using organic items, so I am giving the makeup to a friend. I have given much of my poor color choice makeup away.
Right now I have Lavera Volume Mascara which I purchased from www.drugstore.com. My foundation is Nvey Eco which I purchased from www.saffronrouge.com; I think it is okay, but I want a more pink toned and dewy foundation. I also have set of four limited edition Alima Pure eye shadows (light pink, light gold, soft brown, and dark brown). I have also tried an eyeshadow from http://www.etsy.com/shop/EllaRoseMinerals?ref=ss_profile.
I have also ordered from skinbotanica.com. I want to try Dr. Hauschka’s mascara and concealer, Living Nature’s foundation, and more eyeshadows from EllaRoseMinerals. I just love looking at all the pretty makeup choices!
