As a model, I get a chance to work with a variety of different makeup products and I am always on the hunt for something that not only looks good but feels good on my skin as well. Make-up artists tend to lay it on thick and whenever there is a shoot that requires a lot of makeup, I am usually counting down the hours to when I can finally wash it all off. I started to notice the effect of using such chemical heavy makeup on my skin as it was starting to break out because it wasn’t allowing my skin to breath as it naturally should.
Our skin is a living, dynamic tissue system and it’s remarkably absorbent. 60% of the products that we use on our skin is not only absorbed within it but is also deposited in our circulatory systems. This got me thinking about the long term effects of using these products daily on my skin which is why I decided to seek out makeup that had organic based ingredients.
I was happy to find ZAO Makeupshop. Not only do they provide fantastic colors and textures but all of their makeup is 100% from natural origin and is enriched with active organic ingredients. They are conscious about what goes into their product but they also take into consideration on how it is packaged as well. As a way to help the environment and make it more economical, you just purchase the packaging once and buy the refills next.
One of my most favorite products is their skin foundation 704 neutral. Besides being completely organic made of bamboo hydrosol and organic sweet almond oil, this foundation goes on smoothly on my skin. I love the way it feels so light and I don’t have to worry about the side effects it may bring onto my face. I tend to have more sensitive skin on my face and this foundation is a perfect fit for me. I can use it every day and not even think about it looking horrible 12 hours later. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and glowing.
Another favorite product of mine is their lipstick color 403 fuchsia. Not only is it a great color and on-trend this season, this item never leaves my purse. It is a great lipstick to put on even when I don’t want to put that much makeup on that day. It is especially perfect to use during the cold months, when our lips tends to get chapped the most. This lipstick will not dry out our lips but instead keep them moisturized and looking fresh because it is made from plant extracts and precious oils. I don’t go a day without someone asking me what lipstick I’m wearing.
If you are looking for a natural based, organic makeup that will make you look fantastic and not be harmful to your skin, then ZAO Makeupshop is where it is at!
