Autumn Inspired Make Up & First Impressions

Wednesday, 12 October 2016

Today's post is all about my first impressions of the products above! I'm slowly switching my make up over to organic and natural products, and of course will be sharing my journey on my blog. 

All of these products are available at LoveLula, my favourite website for all things natural and good! 

So I got this foundation in the lightest shade, which is suitable for neutral undertones and is very fair. It's actually slightly too light for me but that's easily fixed with either adding a darker foundation or simply warming up the skin with bronzer. 

The foundation itself is very high coverage and thick, but amazingly it doesn't cake and blends beautifully into the skin. It clung to some of my dry patches but that only happened when I used a brush rather than a sponge. Which brings me onto my next point. 

I used the eco tools foundation brush below to apply it but I found this just didn't work with blending it in evenly. However, using a damp beauty sponge made it look flawless and natural, so I would recommend using a sponge. Also a little goes a long way!

The ingredients are natural, organic and vegan, with the added bonus of SPF 30.

Overall I absolutely love this foundation so far, and it may just be my new holy grail foundation! 

Another amazing product from PHB Ethical Beauty. This eyeliner can be seen in the autumn make up look I created below and it's honestly a dream to work with. The applicator is small enough to really get a precise and clean line. The colour also doesn't fade throughout the day or transfer off. 

This eyeliner is free from parabens, palm oil, mineral oils and GM ingredients, which is great as no one wants to be putting a load of nasty ingredients so close to their eye! 

EcoTools Eye Enhancing Duo Brush Set - £5.99

I did like this duo, although the brushes are quite dense and I prefer something that's slightly more fluffy. The one brush that I particularly liked was the define side, it's perfect using a cream eyeliner and it creates a really precise line. 

EcoTools Bamboo Airbrush Concealer Brush - £4.99

I actually used this as an eyeshadow blending brush! Surprisingly it did actually work really well for blending out eyeshadow in the crease. 

EcoTools Bamboo Flat Foundation Brush - £6.99

Honestly, this brush didn't work for me or it might have just not worked with the above foundation. I think I'll always prefer a damp beauty sponge!

Here's an autumn inspired make up look I created whilst testing out these products for the first time! I also used all of the brushes in this post when creating this look.
