High Brow

There are some products that just simply don't spring to mind when considering adding to your make-up kit and brow gels are probably one of those. It is a great addition, if often a little overlooked, taming those unruly hairs and (depending on the product) adding extra colour and defining the brow, helping you create that perfect arch.

With bold brows literally dominating many of the catwalks this season, now is the time to take control and put those brows in their place!

As you know, I love a multipurpose product and this one just doesn't fail, working pretty much anywhere.

One of the most readily available eco brush ranges in the UK is Ecotools.
Since it's launch, Ecotools has become highly popular amongst Make-up Artists, beauty editors and consumers alike and has gained a huge celebrity following, including actress and environmental activist Alicia Silverstone, who has put her name to a collection of beautiful make-up bags for the range.

We Interrupt This Service

Throughout late April and May I will be taking a little break from blog writing as my schedule will be a little bit full on. I will therefore, be cutting back on the number of blog posts that are published - reverting to one post a week.  

Thanks to's ability to schedule posts so they publish on specific dates, I have already written these posts and they are all lined up waiting to be read. All being well, normal service will resume in June.

If you have any organic make-up thoughts, comments or questions during this time or then do let me know, I would love to hear them.

I hope you all have a lovely start to your summer and look forward to getting back to you with many more organic make-up thoughts and products very soon.

Keep 'Em Clean!

High standards of hygiene is essential for any Make-up Artist and I always keep an anti-bacterial hand spray (anti-bacs, as I generally refer to them) in my kit - both onset and in the make-up room. Hand sanitisers really have become a must-have product for many of us, but many traditional high street brands contain all manner of nasties, thankfully there are some organic alternatives out there.
