Tools for your Make-up Kit

Did you know that not all make-up brushes are created equally? Did you know that the quality of your make-up brush affects the end result of your make-up application?

In order to give your look the natural, smooth finish you want and the ease of application your are looking for, it is essential to use a superior quality make-up brush. I spent much time and energy researching brushes and brush manufacturers before settling on the make-up brushes I carry.

I am proud to say that the brushes I carry are made by a very conscious, aware company. I carry 2 categories of brushes – one set or those of you looking to only use all natural products and another for those of you looking for vegan products.

Our all natural hair brushes are the highest quality. These brush hairs are not machine cut, they are hand shaped to preserve the natural tip. The brush hairs are carefully selected and processed. ­ No animal is ever hurt or destroyed for the purpose of making these brushes!

Our vegan brushes are made of taklon and and are perfect for applying mineral make-up efficiently and effectively. And, they are oh, so soft!

All of our brushes have smooth hardwood handles and the manufacturers participate in reforestation programs and never use endangered species of wood.

You can see all our brushes here.

Photo Shoot Bloopers

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

We had so much fun doing photo shoots the past couple of months, not only to showcase Natural Look Mineral Make-Up, but at the same time to feature Golden Sphere Studios‘ gorgeous art jewelry.

You can view my favorite shots from Photo Shoot 1 and Photo Shoot 2 here. As I was going through these fantastic photos by photographers Elysa Pizzuti Ray and Barbara Colvin, I found some really entertaining shots that didn’t make it into the top picks (for obvious reasons!), but I thought would be great fun to share with you anyway…

 

Here’s Scarlet and I having a laugh with Kent Raible, the very talented crafter of this magnificent jewelry.

Here we are in our lame attempt to cheer up Isabel…

Perhaps we were boring Maleah…

Here are a few pictures from a preliminary shoot we did (without full makeup) just to see how we liked the compositions.

This last photo may have made it into my top pics if it had been more in focus.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this behind the scenes peek at our recent photo shoots. It was an incredible experience for all of us!
