Go Green, Be Pretty (Happy Earth Day)!

April is Earth Month! Mother Nature can play a huge role in our daily beauty routine. Today’s organic products are more effective & less expensive. Here’s a few of my favorite “green” must-haves and tips on how to use them (trust me they work)!

Multi-Purpose products are not only cost effective but take up less space in your makeup bag. Try Pacifica Coconut Multiples used for lips, cheeks, contouring, & highlighting. Also 100% Vegan!
Coconut oil is a major staple in my cosmetics regime. Not only for moisturizing (hair, body, & nails) but, I add raw brown sugar & use it as an exfoliate. 1 whole jar of organic coconut oil at you local market can cost as less as $7.

A long-lasting manicure no longer needs harsh chemicals. Try Jenna Hipp eco-friendly polish it’s free of toxins but doesn’t compromise the wear and comes in a variety of shades from nudes to vibrant neons.
Honey taste great but it’s also good for locking in moisture. Try Lush Cosmetics Fair Trade Honey Shampoo. It can be used on all hair types and gives you a great shine.

We Nailed It

Nails are 1 of the best accessories & after hours of trying on colors (it wasn’t a hard day at all)! I’ve found the perfect shades for spring! From purple to coral a VIBRANT hue is definitely on the menu.

The “No Makeup” Look

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Glowing, healthy skin is always in-style. Here’s how to achieve the “no makeup” look with a few of my favorite products.

1. For that “J Lo glow” add a few drops of Stila’s All Over Shimmer liquid luminizer to your foundation or moisturizer.

2. You want that real skin feel. Try Bare Minerals new BareSkin Foundation. It’s a correcting liquid foundation with a serum all in one.

3. Use a cheek cream that blends into your skin for a natural flushed look. I Like Josie Maran’s Coconut Watercolor cheek gelee in Poppy Paradise (you can also use it on your lips).

4.  Apply several coats of mascara. Try Loreal’s Collagen Mascara for thick, lush lashes.

*Beauty Note: Keep your brows maintained for a overall polished look*
