Cut to.. I got a kid who drives, and I am STILL the hugest fan of Dr. Hauschka. Their newest collection of makeup has me swooning. Its called the NATURAL ALLURE COLLECTION, and I can definitely say that I am as impressed as I can possibly be with this makeup. Lets start with the ILLUMINATING POWDER, which I not only love for myself, but I used it on all the women on my last 16 hour workday- and it was GENIUS. It is packed with luxe botanical and mineral ingredients, which nourish the skin and keep it healthy. And it gives your complexion this kind of glowy, gorgeous sheen which is not too matte, yet not at all shiny. It was perfect for camera, and sets makeup beautifully. Best of all, I could keep reapplying it on all the actresses on the set, and it never ever looked cakey or too heavy. Just what you want from a translucent powder. Perfect in every way. The EYESHADOW DUOS are equally fabulous. Usually I stay away from the “neutral” word because it immediately conjures up an image of BORING, and these tones are anything but. Yes, they are neutral, but in a really sexy, wearable way. The Pale Caramel and Cedar Dawn pair combines a gorgeous khaki with a hot, sheer gold color. The Soft Cinnamon and Deep Bronze duo are two shades of yummy mocha colors that give new meaning to the words “smoky eye.” And the formula is foolproof: silky, just the right amount of pigment and absolutely perfect for fall. I’m also completely obsessed with the EUCALYPTUS DEW GREEN EYELINER. Such a perfect complement to either eyeshadow duo, and it glides on like a dream. Great to smudge and create a sultry, super hot look, or perfect of you just want a beautiful, everyday liner. Last but certainly not least is the LIPSTICK NOVUM. Normally I’m a gloss girl-I tend to find most lipsticks drying and hard to wear. These rosy, super pretty colors ( Delicate Orchid and Maple Glow) are housed in a creamy base of beeswax and rose petal extract that are not too matte, not too glossy, and feel delicious on your lips. Definitely my new go-to colors that have a permanent place in my makeup bag! To sum it up, this new collection from Dr. Haushka is brilliant for so many reasons, and I am just loving that it is so well edited, the colors are sensational, and EVERYONE can wear it. Some brands just really stand the test of time, and Dr. Hauschka has proved once again that we will forever be fans of this incredible line.
