We’re ever-endeavoring to provide answers to your most pressing natural beauty Q’s, so we thought we’d tackle this question that’s been coming up a lot lately…
“I’m ready to switch up my look a little and am looking for natural & nontoxic makeup solutions. What are some tips?”
We decided to enlist the help of our friend and celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno, who has worked her makeup magic on stars ranging from Amanda Seyfreid to Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham, to teach us all how we can get better results from our makeup – and keep our routine natural & nontoxic – by adapting some of these tips and tricks, where skincare can moonlight as healthy makeup. Thanks for sharing, Katey!
1. Exfoliate for Glow
In order to get skin really ready to bare it all (clear and glowing without foundation!), spend a little extra time on exfoliating at night. First, use Tata’s Resurfacing Mask once a week, and Tata’s Regenerating Cleanser daily. The Mask will loosen hard-to-remove dead skin cells that cause that flat, lifeless appearance, and the Cleanser will whisk it all away.
2. Make Your Own BB Cream!
Blend a few drops of your foundation into your Rejuvenating Serum for an even better than a tinted moisturizer effect. Essentially making your own BB cream, you’ll ensure that you get the best in skin care, and your perfect shade of coverage.
3. Blend Better…
To give yourself a really luxe foundation application experience, thoroughly mist your beautyblender® with Tata’s Hydrating Floral Essence, and use the dampened sponge to gently press your foundation into your skin, while lifting off excess – leaving behind perfectly flawless skin tone and texture.
4. Instantly Refresh!
At the end of a long day, when you have very little time to refresh your face, roll some Replenishing Nutrient Complex onto clean fingertips and press the product into the highlight areas of your face: along cheekbones, bridge of nose, and the cupid’s bow just above the center of the upper lip.
Tata’s tip: this product also works wonderfully as an eye makeup remover!
5. Finishing Touches: Body Glow!
This summer, after you’ve spent time perfecting the skin on your face, don’t forget about the skin on your arms, legs, and décollaté! Blend a few drops of your foundation (or one made for body) into Tata’s amazing Revitalizing Body Oil and watch the reactions of your friends as you walk into the room in a sundress!
And of course, we couldn’t finish off the post without mentioning Tata’s favorite tip: using the Be Adored lip treatment as a dewy cheek tint! Dab a little onto the apple of your cheek and spread lightly to get the perfect shade of raspberry-pink. Then apply to the lips for some matching color!
