While the bulk of my prize package for the upcoming In Honor Of The Tatas Event is geared towards babies, I just HAD to throw in a few great items just for Mom! And what do moms like? Feeling and looking their best, despite all of the sleep deprivation, spit up stains, and all the demands of everyday life.
Moms have the hardest and most underpaid job there is, and it can often be very exhausting.(I know all about this!) Sometimes, this fatigue can be seen in our outward appearance. All women love to feel beautiful, but caking on unnatural looking make-up can amplify rather than conceal the issues we try so hard to camouflage. My biggest issue? Dark circles. I suppose I am genetically prone to get these, as I have a more olive complexion. I hate having to apply layer upon layer of goop under my eyes just to look awake! And to make matters worse, sometimes using tons of product can make dark circles more apparent, with a reverse-raccoon look that is truly horrendous.
One thing I have noticed is that a lot of make-up doesn't perform well because of the ingredients used. Make-up tends to be full of ingredients that are not at all beneficial to the skin. In fact, some of them are actually harmful! So while the make-up may do it's job while on, as soon as it's washed off, the skin is left dull, blotchy, or irritated underneath. So to combat this, many just repeat the cycle and apply even more make-up than before! Rather than take part in this vicious, skin sapping cycle, I have chosen to take a much more natural approach to beauty: Mineral Make-up.
One line of Mineral Make-Up I love is the fabulous selection at Eve Organics. This company is dedicated to providing only the highest quality, naturally derived make-up and skin care products that are actually good for your complexion! Eve Organics believes in full disclosure, and always offers a complete list of ingredients in their products.They avoid toxic ingredients in their products such as: dyes, lakes, synthetic fragrance, bismuth oxychloride, talc, parabens, sulfates, UREA, nano-particles and others. (To learn more, please visit the Informative Links section of the Eve Organics website.) I dare you to find any harsh ingredients in their products. I tried, and I wasn't able to!
Eve Organics is also dedicated to providing products that WORK. They know that frilly packaging and appearance enhancing additives don't matter in the whole scheme of things. What really matters is the quality and effectiveness of the products at hand. So while their packaging doesn't scream high-end boutique, the performance of their products certainly do.
I received an assortment of products from Eve Organics for review. I have to say, I am very impressed! I was able to achieve a fresh, natural look with this assortment that can easily be worn during the day as well as dressed up with a heavier eye for night time glam as well.
I received the Eve Organics Mineral Foundation in Light Olive. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this foundation! I think it's actually my new favorite! The best part of this mineral foundation is the fact that the amount of coverage you receive is totally customizable. For a light coverage, you literally only need the tiniest amount of product. You can then go over problem areas to give added coverage. This product blends seamlessly to provide a flawless finish. No funny make-up lines or caked on appearance here! I do want to stress, a little bit of this foundation goes a LONG way. It doesn't take much at all to create your perfect face. So please, err on the side of caution and only use a little bit. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how little product is needed to achieve a beautiful, glowing complexion! Added bonus: This make-up is so lightweight, you will feel like you don't have anything on at all!
The next product I'd like to share is the Eve Organics Mineral Blush in Joyful. This blush is amazing. I love the color of this blush. It is a deep, lush pink with a hint of peach. It has a slight shimmer to it, but it still maintains a very natural, delicate appearance. Again, as with most mineral make-up, a little goes a long way. A very small amount will definitely give you a healthy glow. Joyful is the perfect shade for summer time! It definitely gives a natural, radiant flush that is flirty, feminine, and just downright pretty.
I also received the Eve Organics Vegan Lip Polish in Shimmery Bronze. This lip polish is absolutely wonderful. It has a beautiful, natural looking bronze shimmer, and does not go on overly sticky feeling. It feels amazing on the lips, and has decent staying power for a lip polish! I found that I could eat and drink without having to reapply. Over the course of a whole day, I only needed to reapply once, and that was after about 5 hours of wear. Not too shabby, if you ask me! I also love that the ingredients in this lip polish are Vegan and completely non-toxic. I am a firm believer that the more natural a product is, the better it will perform. Eve Organics definitely proves this to be true with all of their amazing products!
I also received a great duo of products for the eyes: the Eve Organics Black Liner and the Eve Organics Eyeshadow in 24K. I don't know about you, but I love a nice shimmery eyeshadow in the summer time. (Or all year, for that matter!) But some shimmery eyeshadows are just too over the top for daytime use. I was delighted to find that this was not the case with the Eve Organics 24K eyeshadow. This light, golden shadow is gorgeous. It will make your eyes pop without being too overstated. The shimmer is subtle, and very pretty. During the day, I just use a small amount of product to give a nice, subtle glow.Of course you can add more if you want to kick it up a notch for a great night time look! Paired with the Eve Organics Black Liner, you'll be ready to hit the town in style in no time!
Here I am wearing all of the above mentioned products. Notice how natural this look is! And it took less than 5 minutes!
Overall, I love Eve Organics! Their make-up is long-lasting, easy to apply, and comes in absolutely gorgeous shades. As a matter of fact, they have SO many shades to choose from you could create a different look every day! Make-up is meant to be fun and help bring out the best in a girl. Eve Organics definitely has you covered there! And you can always rest assured that you're only putting the best possible ingredients onto your face. There are no harsh chemicals or additives that will sap your skin of its natural radiance. Eve Organics products are designed to help you put your best face forward, nothing artificial needed! Eve Organics is a safe cosmetics company, so you can wear their make-up with confidence. So if you haven't tried Eve Organics products, RUN over there and see their vast selection of products. I love my Eve Organics Mineral Make-up. It is truly some of the highest quality make-up I have used in a long time!
