NATURAL & TOXIN FREE BLUSH LOVIN' ... AND THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX!
You will hear me repeat this time and time again... BUT there really is SO many beautiful Natural & Organic products available for us these days.... there's NO REASON to be using products filled with nasty fillers (talc, parabens and synthetic fragrance, etc), that end up in our blood stream!
Now if you're someone like me, who isn't naturally blessed with rosie red cheeks, you might like the help of a decent blush to give you that healthy natural glow!
MY CURRENT FAVOURITES
ERE PEREZ - Pure Rice Powder Blush: beautiful compact Powder blush DUO's. Seriously, who doesn't love a duo? Two colours in one compact! LOVE it. The Powders are made from rice powder and contain natural SPF15+. I personally love "bondi" with a peachy matte shade and a rosie pink shade with a light golden shimmer..
W3LL PEOPLE - Universal Multi-Use Stick - Beautiful, natural, creamy consistency, wind-up colour sticks... I love the colours, plus the pigment isn't too intense so its easy to soften and blend out..
RMS Beauty LiptoCheek - Natural, Organic and raw creamy colour pots of goodness. Perfect for travel makeup bags too as the packaging is minimal so they fit anywhere, in your pocket, makeup bag, etc.
INIKA - Mineral Blush Puffer Pots - Natural, Loose powder pots in 2 beautiful peachy/pink tone colours.. really beautiful to create a soft, pretty, flush of colour..
HOT TIP - Apply cream blushes with fingers first (then blend with brush if necessary)....the warmth of your skin helps cream products to blend more evenly when applied..
THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX - Buy less, use more!
Remember that you can use any natural pigment/product for your lips, cheeks and even eyes!! Get the most out of your products and don't be sucked into buying 10 million different items.... often they are full of the exact same ingredients, just labelled differently! Find some of my hot tips below.....

LIPSTICKS - I often use lipsticks to create a beautiful cream blush! Like when I say often, I mean ALL THE TIME!
LIP BALMS & GLOSS - Natural Lip Balms are full of healthy ingredients and can double as a fabulous tint/blush, plus they usually have extra moisturising ingredients to give that dewy glow!
MIX - Keep in mind that you can mix your products together to create different colours and textures! Mix your lipsticks together or with a blush and then add some paw paw balm on top for that extra shine and so forth..
I often find myself out and about only carrying 1 lipstick or lip balm, 1 bronzer and some concealer (I can pretty much create an entire "look" with these 3 products). Concealer acts as foundation to cover all un even skin tone & blemishes, Lipstick doubles as blush and/or soft eyeshadow base and Bronzer doubles as bronzer and eyeshadow!
Start thinking outside the box.. lets consume less and get creative with some of the products you may already have!
