What is your favorite foundation?
I’m not too fond of foundation, as I feel like it always looks cakey on me. I’d rather apply concealer where it’s most needed. However, I got several samples of Lily Lolo’s mineral foundations a few weeks ago and they’re really nice in terms of coverage.
What type of foundation to you prefer – mineral, liquid, or cream?
I haven’t tried cream foundation yet (Kjaer Weis… I’m looking at ya 😉 but I’ll go with mineral, since the finish looks more natural and I believe it’s more suitable for someone wth oily skin like me.
Have you found a favorite natural mascara?
Not yet, as I haven’t tried a lot of mascaras, but I’ll go with the Ilia mascara I got several months ago. It’s a bit smudgy, but it really adds volume and defines the lashes nicely.
In your opinion, what company makes the best pigments for eye shadow?
I would be able to answer this question if I had tried all the possible companies that exist, (a girl can dream, right?) but so far, Jane Iredale, Inika, and Lily Lolo have an incredbile selection of shades. The palette you see on the pictures is the glamour eye & lip palette from Jane Iredale.
Have you tried to make any of your own natural makeup? If so, how did it turn out?
I don’t dare to, I’m afraid it will get too messy. I’d most likely try to do my own gel eyeliner (I’ve seen a few DIY versions with Aloe Vera Gel and activated charcoal) and tinted lipbalms.
What makeup item was the hardest to switch over to a natural alternative?
I can’t answer this one, since I almost started off immediately with natural makeup. But I have to say that I miss those “fruity” roller lipglosses that I used to collect as a teen. Oh and I’d love to see a natural eyeliner marker pen on the market, because I struggle applying liquid eyeliner.
Do you have any holy grail natural or non-toxic makeup products?
Right now, I absolutely love my Benecos blushes, I use them on a daily basis, and of course Ilia lip conditioner in “Arabian Knights”.
What is your go to non-toxic lip product?
It’s no secret that I cherish my Ilia lipsticks/lip conditioners, however I’m currently trying out several brands which look very promising as well. I’ll talk about them very soon!
I also love to pieces the Annee de Mamiel rosey lip balm. Lips feel beautifully soft even after one application. It’s absolutely delightful.
What is your favorite natural cosmetics brand?
I don’t have a favorite brand per se, because I like to look at the product itself. However, while going through my makeup stash, I noticed that I’m using quite a lot of Lavera & Jane Iredale products at the moment. The reason for that is because they offer such a great variety and they are easy to find where I’m based.
Aaand that’s a wrap! I had a lot of fun inspecting my makeup for this tag 😉
Now I tag these two beauties :
