I love wearing make up, but we all know it’s crap for our skin. It’s a catch 22. You have bad skin, so you put on makeup – makeup makes your skin bad.
I’ve been stuck in this cycle for a good 15 years. I often wish I’d never started wearing foundation. But that decision has long gone and now I’m in a the trap of trying to keep my skin clear, whilst looking OK enough to leave the house – god dam you Mizz Magazine! This is all your fault.
Well I’m so glad I did because this stuff is genuinely beautiful.
I chose the Luminous Sheer Liquid Foundation, the Highlight Palette and the Countour Palette. And decided to try them out for my friends wedding – a do from 1pm to 11.30pm and, as we were getting ready and going into York first, it needed to last a good 12 hours.
I started out with the foundation. The lovely peeps at Nude by Nature also sent some makeup brushes, so I applied using these. They are really nice brushes and I usually hate using brushes.
The application was strange. It kind of went white and I freaked out a bit. But once I blended properly it was the perfect match for my skin tone. I was so impressed. Not only does this stuff make you look like a flawless goddess it’s good for your skin – I mean, why have we been using anything that has chemicals when there’s literally no reason to?
The ingredients are:
- Kakadu plum
- Lilly Pilly
- Vitamins C and E
- Jojoba Oil
- Green Tea
I was honestly so impressed.
This was the product I was excited for and I was not disappointed – my boyfriend literally wowed me when I finished and said my makeup looked really nice – plus the perfecting brush I used was amazing at blending – the best brush I have ever used hands down.
Anyway I felt genuinely pretty – which is what makeup is for. And it lasted! But what really impressed me was the morning after. I woke up and my skin was so clear and visibly healthy – asif all those vitamins and natural products had been doing some good whilst I was filling my body with alcohol! Win win if you ask me.
It’s made me realise there’s no need to compromise. You can have healthy skin and wear make up. Nude by Nature = saviour to skin.
