Natural Face of the Day ~ Featuring Studio 78 Paris

I thought you guys would be interested in my 'face of the day', which was actually yesterday but who's quibbling !
I have been trying out some new natural make up and wanted to show you the results!
I was trying to achieve a natural but neutral 'better than bare' daytime look, ideal for weekends where you're just pottering about or popping to the shops.
I only used two items of conventional make up so I was pretty pleased with myself!
I wore this to go to the hairdresser's, Tesco and doing a final bit of garden tidying up ~ my life of glamour !!
~ Natural Make Up ~
Dr Hauschka Concealer ~ Shade 01
Studio 78 Paris Baked Mineral Blush ~ Shade 03 We Walk In The Woods

Dr Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette ~ Shade Stone Colours
UNE Lip Toned Colour Lipstick ~ Shade L02
Terre d'Oc Lipgloss ~ Shade 301 Transparent ( Was originally clear but has been tinted pink from using over lipsticks!)
~ Conventional Make Up ~
NYX Eyebrow Powder ~ Shade Auburn/Red
Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20 ~ Shade Opal (Sample Sachet)
~ Brushes ~
Real Techniques Large Powder Brush
Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush & Base Shadow Brush
Liberty Hello Kitty Eyebrow Brush
Eco Tools Blush Brush
~ Natural Skincare ~
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
Bloom Remedies Toner ~ Sensitive Skin
OV Naturals Triple Rose Facial Oil
Pai Echium Eye Cream
Pai Avocado & Jojoba Day Cream
Liz Earle Neck & Bust Serum

Bloom Remedies Strawberry Lip Balm 

The Jouer base is lovely, and although it has mineral sunscreen and colour and I was very happy with it's performance, it does contain quite a few nasty chemicals such as Propylene Glycol so I won't be purchasing it in a full size.
 This is a lot less coverage than I normally have but I don't think it turned out too badly!
Those of you with eagle eyes may have noticed my 'Beaten Heart' necklace, yes it is the one I featured in one of my Wish list Wednesday posts from La Jewellery ~ very kindly La Jewellery contacted me and offered me a substantial discount on the necklace which enabled me to purchase it, so a big thank you to La Jewellery, I am really enjoying wearing it.
I will just mention Liz Earle Skincare, although I have listed it as natural, it's not really as natural as I would like, it does still contain parabens & some other chemical ingredients I'm not overly thrilled with. I am using up the cleanser and until I find a suitable alternative for the neck serum, that has cleaner ingredients I will continue to use it.
So what do you guys think? ~  is this a look that you would wear ?

  1. Your make-up looks really nice. Is the blush- we walk in the woods matt or has it glitter in it? Pernilla

  2. Hi Pernilla, it isn't matte, it has a gentle glow, but it isn't glittery, it has a similar finish to the Laura Geller baked Blushes if you are familiar with them.
    I will be doing a proper review of this blush & the pink version soon with proper swatches and close ups etc.
    Thanks Jenny xx

  3. Hi Jenny I must say how beautiful you are, your make up looks amazing. The lipstick is defo my kinda shade! I hadn't realised that brand was natural?? I've seen is before and not purchased. I will take another look now. Is the brand owned by bourjois? Xxx love the make up you used.

  4. Awww thanks Jen xxx yes UNE is all natural and is owned by bourjois, their lipsticks and glosses are lovely, I've got a few all nice and neutral, reasonable price too!
