This totally unfiltered close up is the most make up you’ll see me wear! I just finished a make up tutorial video I promised my sister & this is the result.  Putting on make up and giving a commentary makes it take ages but covered the basic things I use…because I don’t ever wear make up that needs reapplying or retouching so I tend to apply it and wipe it off so the residue is sufficient. Means to the untrained eye it’s hard to tell if I have make up on!

Basic info… I’m 43 this year but I use #cremedelamer moisturiser daily and as I’m #nocturnal, sun damage is limited. I do think #cremedelamer has an anti aging effect…but being a #hermit I don’t really get to compare myself to other people my age. I don’t drink. Quit smoking 9 years ago. Vegetarian for years and vegan for much of it and I dance every day. I think exercise is better than any makeup!
Make up I used…#wunderbrow eyebrow gel (not v neat but I was rushing!), #MineralPowder inc light reflecting #LaMer finishing powder. Lush cream eyeshadow & liquid eyeliner. Lush #redlipstick and tinted #lipbalm.

I do tint my eyebrows and eyelashes and #henna my hair fortnightly. Hair kept shiny with #Lush shampoos and conditioners as I avoid any silicone based products and heat styling. My hair hasn’t actually been cut for about 2 years so as you can see…split ends not a problem!

Took two 15 min vids to complete the demo though! Enjoy!

I love…being a hippie! ♡

I love…being a hippie! (Or…perhaps due to my penchant for all things victorian, a bohemian is more accurate…maybe a boho loves poetry more than psychedelic rock & tiedye?)

Anyway…VVV excited abt animal cruelty free stoptober now! Was worried abt coping with the changes u often get when your body gets used to new products.

I will be doing weekly reviews and mostly on Lush cosmetics – but also on stuff I use regularly henna for my preraphaelite redhead style, vegan & cruelty free makeup (I wear v little but a decent fuschia lipstick & a reliable red lipstick are my staples! So nervous of trying those but committed to the process).

Also using hyalauronic acid & vit c serum from olOznaturals, Biona coconut oil & will be using an organic argan oil for dry areas too.

Am so far loving the feeling of not rubbing petrol based, mineral oil & chemical nasties into my body and hoping it ‘sinks in’, while being aware, if I knew what was in it, I would probably hope it didn’t!

Anyway, watching Forks Over Knives, Earthlings and Cowspiracy definitely heightened my resolve to commit to an ethical and karmically sound diet and lifestyle…the diet part is no big change for me…the other parts are more of a challenge!

“I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way”
