Dr.Hauschka are a natural skincare company that's not afraid of a bit o' the bling.
Despite being sold in my local organic store, ie produce, it's not all henna rinses and worthy organic tofu with this brand; they love women making up with mascara, eye shadow and lip gloss.
With that in mind, they bring some pretty colours for spring and summer with their new limited edition natural make-up colour story, Dr.Hauschka Natural Glamour.
This eyeshadow palette ($85) is really me, with its grey and charcoal and warm shades of cream and brown eyeshadows. They're great colours for going with denim jeans or for creating a smoky eye for night. The pigmented colours are matte rather than shimmery and I think would suit most women.
Dr.Hauschka Kajal Eyeliners come with two ends so are good value for $39.00. This new one in blue and grey has a deep, strong navy shade and a really nice medium grey. It contains Quince wax and Japanese wax to give a silky application, with extracts of anthyllis, witch hazel and black tea to soothe the sensitive area around the eye.
Dr.Hauschka’s Natural Glamour Balancing Teint Powder ($75) balances out small flaws and blemishes with its three colour powder compact which contains silk to give the skin a soft, velvety feel.
Also great for lovers of strong lips that pop, the new Dr.Hausckha Lip Gloss in Blackberry $39.00 has a creamy base of beeswax, mango butter and apricot kernel oil to keep lips moisturised, with a sheer coat of blackberry colour.
HOT TIP: HOW TO ACHIEVE A GORGEOUS DAY-TIME LOOK WITH DR.HAUSCHKA
To achieve a natural make-up look for day, apply Dr.Hauschka Translucent Make-up and Balancing Teint Powder to smooth the complexion and reduce shine. Dust the eyelids with the light shade of the powder and then apply the ice blue eyeshadow at the bottom of the upper lid. Next brush earth brown eyeshadow from the outer corner of the eye to the middle of the eyelid and blend the colours where they meet. Apply lily white eyeshadow to the entire upper eyelid, followed by lava grey under the brow bone. Use the grey tip of the Dr.Hauschka Kajal Eyeliner Duo to draw a fine line around the eye and lightly brush Dr.Hauschka Mascara (standard make-up range) onto the upper and lower lashes. Finish with Dr.Hauschka Lip Gloss blackberry to give a the lips a gentle shimmer.
