5 minutes face with natural products – Green Life In Dublin

How are all of You, I hope You are well?  It’s been a hot minute (or two years!) since I posted a make up look. I’ve simplified it to a bare minimum and it takes only five minutes. Mainly finger paint, You will need only one brush for the mineral make up. If I can do it, anyone can 🙂

Here are the products in the order I use them.

English mineral make up company mineral foundation in Light Neutral

This mineral foundation has my heart ever since I discovered it, years ago. I remember first getting it when my perioral dermatitis was super new and at it’s worst. That must have been like 7 years ago now? It covered it beautifully and it still does it to this day. I know this product will never fail me, so that’s why I reach for it over and over and over again. I love that it is women’s owned business – mom and daughter for that matter – I applaud and support that. All the products I have tried to date have been beautiful. Check my review below.

Ere Perez Arnica Concealer in Honey

I’ve been loving this brand for forever too. I’ve reviewed the brand on my old blog a good while ago and while I don’t have every thing from the brand, I always have at least of the products on the go. The brand does not have good swatches online, the shade recommended for my skin tone looked too pale, so I ordered Honey. Guess what, that got too light very fast too now that my skin has seen some sun.

honest beauty creme cheek blush in rose pink

I got this in TKMaxx for only a tenner. I will enjoy it while I can, as I know full well it is never coming back there again. This is the trick with TKMaxx, You can find natural products there but they rarely if ever coming back. While the brand is also available at Boots, it is only two products at this date and time. None of them are available in the stores, only online, which is a pet peeve of mine. If big stores & chains carry the brands in their online stores, why not the actual stores? How are we supposed to know what shades matches us? Can we see the textures, colours in person, swatch things? Try before we buy? The blush is called rose pink but it is more mauve than pink, I use it instead of the bronzer. On my eyes and lips too. The creamy product goes on smooth, is very easy to blend and lasts for majority of the day. I am pleased with it.

Jessica Alba, the original creator of the brand, stepped away from it a couple of weeks ago. Let’s hope the ingredients won’t be compromised soon. We have seen that happening so many times before.

Le Rouge Français Pigmented Cheek and Lips in 230 Zenobie

This came from Naturisimo beauty box. On it’s own it is Barbie pink shade, which doesn’t suit me that much, but it blends beautifully with Honest Beauty blush. I blend both together and use where I want it, eyes, cheeks, lips.

english mineral make up eyebrow pencil in dark grey

Another Holy Grail from this brand. When I first got it, I thought it was too dark on me, but soon enough I discovered it actually suits me to make my brows darker than they are, it looks better in the photos and in person. Love the pencil with spooly at the end, one product and done!

kosas Air Brow Clear Lifting Treatment Gel

I haven’t tried this product yet. In all honesty I forgot I had it. It came in one of the Naturisimo beauty boxes, quite possibly the same one with the blush. I stashed it away and eventually forgot about it, till I moved my entire make up collection into another place. I guess I will keep You guys posted?

As You can see, I left out the mascara. The reason being that last mascara I have tried didn’t work out for me (flaking, smudging) so I replaced it with a new one. The order is still not here, nor I have tried it, so let’s just leave the mascara out of this post, shall we? Use Your favourite, we all probably have something that we like. My favourites include Inika and Living Libations. 100% Pure one if You get a good batch. If it smells like alcohol from the get go, send it back.
