Glow Natural - Winter Beauty Tutorial
This is a season all about colour. Changing landscapes, deep bronze leaves, red berries and spectacular early sunsets create warm colours which can be reflected in our beauty routine.
Whether you’re out there enjoying Nature’s vibrant palette or admiring it from indoors, here’s a few hints to get you sporting a naturally healthy glow, subtly by day or more boldly by night...
1. A perfect base:-
For normal to dry skin moisturising is a must to achieve a smooth, dewy finish. Apply Timeless Rose Moisturiser first (our tinted moisturiser will be coming soon!) following sparingly with foundation* or 2-3 drops of our antioxidant tinted serum Organic Superfruit Concentrate ($60) to add a gentle glow whilst nourishing without masking the skin below.
For oily skin, a light application of Balancing Citrus Super Tonic ($29) allowed to dry will moisturise as well tone and balance oil production to help your make-up to last longer. Follow with foundation* if worn.
Now is the time to slick on a little concealer ($33) if any imperfections or under eye shadows are still visible. Blend out the edges lightly with fingertips to reveal a flawless, natural finish.
*For greater coverage, or for evening, simply apply concealer (one or both shades to match your skin tone) generously into the palm of your hand, add a little T R moisturiser, mix together with a spatula or fingertips – et voila, custom-matched organic foundation!
2. To accent eyes:-
Lightly sweep Sand highlighter over the entire lid and up to brow line. Then accent with rich matte brown sweeping across eyelid, then again from the outer half of eyes into the socket and out towards the brow bone at the corner of eye to the depth of colour desired. Either add a hint of glimmering gold eye colour ($14) on centre of lid and across brow bone or reserve for added evening glamour.
Eyeshadow tip for very dry or mature skin: prime brow bone first with a touch of Lip Silk ($11, or two for $15) applied with middle fingers to ensure a smooth, crease-free finish.
Skip the eyeshadow step for a quick or bare look.
Tidy the brows, then using a soft brown liner such as our Organic Eye Liner in Brown ($24) define brows if needed with short, light feathery strokes, then apply a fine line carefully along the upper lash line extending 1-2 mm beyond the outer edge and dot along the lower lash line for a soft, natural look. To complete the definition of your eyes, apply 1 or 2 light coats of black or brown mascara allowing it to dry a little between coats to keep lashes separate.
3 Lips and cheeks:-
To define shape and increase lipstick wear, lips can benefit from either our Rose or Brown lip liner to match your lipstick. Choose one of our warm shades of lipstick such as Praline ($34) for a natural ‘nude’ look or something a little bolder like Hot Chocolate, Rose Parfait or Fig Fondant - a very seasonal shade which flatters all skin tones. Apricot Sorbet can be worn alone or over any lipstick to give a golden glimmer – or for a more dramatic statement go for Cherry Tart.
Complete the ‘glow natural’ look with a swipe of lipstick across the apple of your cheeks and blend out with fingertips to give a totally natural hint of colour.
Expert Tip: For extra lip care and sheen, apply our Lip Silk over your lipstick or alone throughout the day to keep your lips soft, smooth and looking good.
