Saharan Inspired Beauty
In celebration of Earth Day, we created this Saharan-inspired, luminous beauty look using eco-friendly beauty essentials from our BIO range.
The Bio Range is a considered collection of mindful, artisan-crafted cosmetics made with naturally derived, organic, vegan-friendly and ethically sourced ingredients. Each product is infused with sacred oils, botanicals and extracts for high performance, makeup as skincare results.
We coupled rich, earthy tones with radiance-boosting complexion products for a natural, barely-there base and beautifully, bronzed finish. We give you a breakdown of all of the beauty details and show you step-by-step how to recreate this look yourself.
STEP 1.Start by creating a smooth, even base by applying the Triple C Concealer to any areas you wish to add coverage, brighten or conceal. The Triple C is natural, lightweight and offers a crease-free, undetectable finish.
Dot the flock applicator directly onto the skin. Blend with the Vegan Concealer Brush or pat gently with finger until smooth. For added coverage, reapply as needed.
STEP 2.Next, we use the Love & Light Illuminating Palette to contour, define and enhance your complexion. Begin by applying shade Bronze Ochre directly on and underneath your cheekbones using long, sweeping movements. Add a hint of colour to the cheeks by dusting over shade Ethereal Rose.
Apply the Luminous Highlighter to any areas of the face you would like to highlight - this is typically anywhere that the sun naturally hits such as above the cheekbones, brow bone, inner corner of the eye and cupids bow.
Using the applicator wand, apply with small dotting motions to deposit the formula on the skin. Using either a foundation brush or your fingertips, softly blend the formula into your skin using light, circular motions until seamlessly blended.
STEP 1.Using the Summer Solstice Palette, apply a thin layer of Jupiter or your preferred main shade over the entire lid using the Vegan Eyeshadow Brush. Define the crease with the Vegan Blending Brush by applying Mars or your preferred darker eye shadow to the hollow of your eye —and blend, blend, blend. Add a hint of shimmer to the middle of the lid, we recommend Burst for a golden, bronzed look or Burn for a deeper intensity. To further define, glide the Goddess Pencil Nubian Brown along the upper and lower lash line and lightly smoke up the product using the Vegan Shading Brush. Complete by applying shade Milky Way to the inner corner of the eye and brow bone.
STEP 2.Lengthen and lift your lashes with the Bio Mascara. Starting at the base of your lashes using the precision wand, wiggle and sweep product over the lashes through to the tips. Apply a second coat whilst lashes are still wet for more dramatic results.
Groom and fill your hairs using the Brow Define for a natural, feathered look. Starting at the base of your brows, use the pencil to create fine, hair-strokes that mimic your natural hair growth. Once complete, use the spoolie brush to gently comb over the hairs for perfectly groomed and blended brows. Repeat to achieve desired look.
STEP 1.We chose to pair our dramatic eye look with a subtle nude lip for a blended natural finish. Bio Lipstick Artemis is most often described as the perfect nude and suits all skin tones. Glide the smooth formula across the lips starting from one corner and blending across in gentle sweeping motions.
Finish off the look with the best-selling Bio Lip Elixir. This high shine, non-stick lip gloss is infused with sacred oils and key ocean botanicals to firm, plump and condition the lips. Glide the formula across the lips using the application wand, starting from one corner and blending across in gentle sweeping motions.
