I am on cloud 9 right about now. Organic makeup, with ingredients good enough to eat, paleo certified. Say whaaat?? I know, I can still hardly believe it myself! I never thought I’d see the day when nearly every grocery store carried organic options, Costco carried a million awesome ingredients like coconut oil, or a makeup company used this level of quality ingredients and NO junk.
You guys, it gets to be a real bummer sometimes. Some big companies have offered to work with me, and I have to tell them no because their ingredients aren’t in line with my mission. I would never promote a product that I didn’t believe in 100%. When I read about this little makeup company by two sisters in Washington I was in love!! But I had to try Araza Natural Beauty myself first. I’ve been using this organic makeup for a few weeks now and here is my feedback:
The Coconut Cream Foundation is pure heaven. It feels so good and moisturizing, which is SUPER important to me. You know what a freak I am about moisturizing. Because do you know what happens to your skin when it’s dry? Breakouts, wrinkles, and aging. Yeah. The foundation smells terrific too, not too much, just a little. You can easily control the amount of coverage you want. For everyday I use the tiniest bit possible, applied with my cream, as directed in my skin care post. It’s been giving me the most lovely tinted moisturizing effect, so much better than the tinted moisturizer that I was using previously (in my skin care post).
For functions and events I prefer a little more coverage and the Coconut Cream Foundation is amazing at that too. I’m going to get Araza Finishing Powder next to use after the foundation for such occasions.
I use an angled shading brush (like their #5 bamboo brush) and the “Mirage” Citrus Infused Eye Color every day for my invisible eye brows 🙂 (Honestly, I look like I have no eyebrows, they’re so blond. That’s why I had bangs for so long, to hide the fact!) I use the same color for my eyelids for special occasions.
The Olive Extract Cheeky Cheek Color and Coconut Lip Gloss are SO pretty and natural-looking that I may or may not be using them everyday. 😉 And of course for special occasions they look so great, like in these photos. I wish I had used Araza’s organic makeup for my wedding and professional headshots. But there wasn’t anything like it at that time!
I am SO proud to now call myself a brand ambassador for Araza. I receive a commission when you buy this organic makeup through me, at no additional cost to you. Thank you for all of your support as always! I hope you love Araza as much as I do!
