Women wear makeup to enhance their natural beauty and this is so in every culture worldwide. Women adorn their eyes and lips with colors that complement them, make them look more attractive overall and to feel more confident. Of course, there are oodles of makeup brands on the market and the vast majority of them are filled with chemicals and toxins. These are being absorbed into your skin and can wreak havoc on your entire body. It is my personal preference to wear organic makeup and Ecco Bella is one of my all-time favorite brands.
Ecco Bella is a conscious company that uses only high-quality organic ingredients in all their products. They are paraben, gluten, and cruelty-free!
I have featured some of their skin care products, but some of you may not know that they also carry a fabulous selection of makeup. My daughter and I recently got to try out their Enlightenment Collection. It’s a compilation of yin and yang, shadow and light. Complementary forces that play over and over again in color and application, with pure, elegant simplicity. The yin/yang energies incorporated here can be thought as a harmonious balance, and not so much opposing forces, interacting to form a dynamic collection that will bring beauty and serenity to your look.
I like to wear subtle makeup, so people will notice my eyes, for instance, and not my cosmetics. The eye compact comes with some lovely shades and is formulated with a Flower Wax which helps maintain skin moisture and keeps your color vibrant and true all day. The Celestial eyeshadow is a gentle neutral color that works so well with all complexions. It feels comfortable to wear all day. We’ve had eyeshadow that really irritated our skin, but with Ecco Bella, we forgot we had it on. The Mystic shade can be worn as an eyeliner or shadow and you have to option of using it wet or dry. I really liked the delicate peachy/pink Purity blush, it’s natural looking and can also be used as a highlighter. It went so well with both our skin tones. The compact comes with a small application brush that has a spongy tip. The colors are held in the compact with a small magnet so you can easily replace or switch colors for variety.
What if I said the Enlightenment Collection included a RED LIPSTICK!! How many of you gasp? Well, red lipstick is all about confidence and power. Everyone can wear this neutral REDvelation lipstick, it’s all in the application. I found the following video very helpful and user-friendly. All the steps are explained so clearly as Darlene walks you through them. I tried the lip suggestion using the REDvelation as an accent and filling the center with Peace, which is a mellow pink/purple gloss. The look is so captivating, I really like it.
To me, Ecco Bella is about wearing makeup that’s healthy and nourishing for your skin. It’s lightweight, natural and makes you feel comfortable in your own skin. Bottom line, they make us look nice and feel feminine and I’m all for that! They offer zen in a compact!
