I’ve always been a makeup junkie! Since going green even more such. For some reason I imagined my self going au naturale for lack of options. Ha! The best makeup I have ever used has been the organic stuff I discovered on this crazy green journey of mine. I love me a bright pink lip and I have been searching for the perfect bronzer and highlighter to use over my makeup for a no fuss contouring look. And I am so happy to report I have found all THREE from ONE company.

ORGANIC CREME BRONZER
Ah the many amazing things I can say about this bronzer! This is the first stick bronzer that was soft and creamy enough to be applied over my foundation without pulling it up! Double yes it is luminous so it just takes a few brush strokes, or slight smudging with your fingertips to blend. No pro’s needed with this to use it as a quick easy contouring stick on your forehead, jawbone, and under neath your cheekbones.

ORGANIC CREME HIGHLIGHER
This highlighter was recently featured in my fellow green beauty, Amanda’s, December organic bunny box! If you aren’t already signed up, you need to be! It is really testament in its own to be included in one of her amazing bunny boxes. Since discovering the huge difference a few swipes of a highlighter can make I have been obsessed. These creme can also be applied over my foundation flawlessly. I make an upside down triangle on my forehead, under each eye, one line down the center of my nose, a little on the crest of my upper lip and on my chin. Try it and trust me you with thank me later. Especially if you are taking photos!

LIPSTICK IN SANGRIA
This sangria lip color was so vibrant I couldn’t imagine it would look prettier on than it did in the sample pot. Oh but it did it was even more magical on my lips. Can I have a never ending supply, pretty please? It is a gorgeous pink with hints of purple and lots of shimmer. This is the perfect year round lipstick. If I had to only have one on me at all times this would honestly be it. No lip liner needed.
