Sweater Weather Eco Makeup Look

Hello beautiful!

Welcome to Everyday Effortless Beauty Series by Klava Z, which is a weekly makeup series showing you how to do flawless, fresh, fun and natural looks for everyday life. #EffortlessbyKlavaZ

This is a special edition of the Beauty Series that I’m extra excited about! Once a month I will be releasing a look that will be focused on using mostly or all eco beauty products. If you know me or you had a chance to read About Klava then you know how passionate I am about natural cosmetics! I blame my green ways on my 10 years of living in the beautiful West Coast of Canada, Victoria BC. Life is a bit less hectic there with a big focus on living consciously, honouring our natural environment and your body by avoid putting toxins in it.

I stepped on the path of natural wellness when my health wasn’t great and being motivated to get better and naturally curious I researched and read a lot about healthy lifestyle, nutrition and since I was a makeup artist, cosmetics as well. I was lovingly named “our hippie” by the MAC girls I worked together with at the store at the time. I was really shocked to learn how many toxic ingredients cosmetic companies add to their products! So I was eager to find alternative makeup and skincare that would perform well without the bad stuff in them. I know that there is still an impression that natural organic makeup products don’t work well, but natural makeup has progressed a long way since the original “crunchy” ways. Learning how to apply it by making your lashes fuller and more bold can be found by visiting travelexperta, enhancing your natural beauty and bringing out your facial features is a great confidence boost, you can use makeup creatively to express your style and show the world how beautiful you are.

Hopefully with my once a month green makeup look I can show you that there are many green products that work just as well and sometimes better then conventional cosmetics. Every month I discover new brands that produce beautiful eco clean makeup! A lot of them I found through my little (ahem, big) addiction called Instagram. πŸ™‚ I’m slowly working towards my goal – a fully stocked eco kit with the best natural organic products in the market.

THE LOOK

Winter Beauty Eco Makeup look Before and After

This green beauty look is called Sweater Weather. It is inspired by the soft cool tones of winter, when snow makes all colours look slightly muted. When I put on my chunky knit sweater and my hat and feeling all cozy, I feel like adding a bit of lightness to my look, like crips winter air. I think that the combination of lilac and mauve tones worked well to convey that feeling. πŸ™‚

Before I get to this look in details, I wanted to mention that I recently did a guest blog post on my friend’s blog for her wedding planning and styling company Toast Events. I blogged about winter specific makeup tricks and creating makeup looks for a special occasion like winter wedding. Check it out here.

Winter Beauty Makeup Look

HOW TO

EYES

Very often I start with the eyes and then do the rest of the face. I do so in case I have some fall outs from the eyeshadows under the eyes. This way I don’t have to redo my concealer or foundation. I can easily swipe them away and finish with the skin.

TECHNIQUE TIP – EYE SHADOW

The focus of my technique is the application of the eyeshadow for this look. I used a slightly frosted lilac eyeshadow and applied it with a flat firm eyeshadow shader brush all over the eyelids, in the inner corners and all over under the eyes as well. I chose a firm brush because I really wanted the light colour to show up and brighten up the eye with its lilac shine. I like to switch it up and use light colours instead of dark to line the bottom of the eyes. It makes the eyes stand out in a different way, it’s sort of has this airy effect. This light shade of lilac looks good with most eye-colours and flatters most skin tones, but dark. Somebody with a darker skin tone can still wear it, but would have to use this colour very sparingly, blended with other colours to avoid looking too stark of a contrast.

Then I used a small pointy pencil brush and applied a taupe colour in the inner corner of the eyes and blended its edges with a clean soft and fluffy blending brush for a washed out effect. I only wanted a hint of colour in the outer corner to ground the lilac colour a bit, that’s why I blended it well with a clean brush.

In the middle of this week I will be posting the video of this technique tip on my Instagram @KlavaZ.Makeup.

SKIN

I applied a creamy foundation all over the face and blended it in with my fingers until it looked like my model’s actual skin just slightly perfected. The foundation I used didn’t need any setting with powder on model’s skin. To bring subtle colour to the cheeks I barely touched them with a light colour pinky brown blush.

LIPS

I used a frosted pinky lipstick as a base and added a light brown glossy finish on top to get the soft mauve colour that echoed the blush colour.

PRODUCTS

Since the eco makeup products are the focus of this look, I will try to include the majority of the products used to create the look, not just the usual key products selection.

Eco Makeup Products for Winter beauty Look

Sappho Organics Liquid Foundation. I’m in love! My skin is so fussy, sensitive and breaks out easily. This is the only liquid foundation that I found so far that works wonderfully for my skin. It actually feels better after wearing it! No wonder, if you read the ingredient list, you would think that its a nurturing skincare cream, not cosmetics. I can honestly write a whole blog just on this foundation! It offers light but build-able coverage, wears well, has moisturizing qualities and anti-aging benefits. One layer application is easy, blends lovely, even though it doesn’t have dimethicone (the stuff that makes foundations slippery, but doesn’t let your skin breathe). If you need to layer for more coverage, I found that the beauty blender (what else, really!) works really well.

Da lish Illumination Concealer. Another great complexion eco product from my personal makeup bag. To find a great under eye concealers is hard even among the multitude of conventional products. It needs to be the right shade, slightly on the peachy or pinky side to counteract the dark circles. It has to be creamy not to accentuate any fine lines but has to set nicely so it doesn’t slide around during the day. It has to have good coverage to actually do the job and if it has a bit of brightening qualities – that’s a bonus. This concealer does it all without any toxic ingredients and it’s made in Canada. I rest my case.

Fitglow Beauty Mineral Eye Trio in Nightfall. It’s a pretty colour combination in the cool tones of lilac and taupe in satin finish and matte black. Easy to work with, though I wish the lilac and black parts would have the same consistency as the taupe – it’s a bit more creamy and pigmented then the other two.

Gabriel Cosmetics Lipstick in Dune. A lovely soft platinum pink with a cool tone frost finish. It feels creamy going on and then sets which makes it really long wearing. It is quite frosty, so be aware if you have dry lips, it can accentuate the dry texture. This brand has been around for awhile – since 1992 and has a few lines that only use 100% natural ingredients and are gluten free and vegan. I’m still discovering their products.

Mineral Fusion Sheer Moisture Lip Tint in Glisten. A nude caramel colour with glossy shimmer. I really like this product’s design, it’s very similar to Clinique Chubby Sticks and so easy to use on the go. It even feels similar going on, sort of a mix between a lipstick and a gloss. I guess the name of it really describes it well. πŸ™‚ It does feel moisturizing, has a lovely glossy finish that is not sticky at all. Like most glossy lip products, I don’t find it stays on long, but I don’t mind reapplying because it feels so nice going on. Mineral Fusion line is the most affordable one that I found so far in the eco makeup range and it’s free from a lot of bad stuff like parabens, talc, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, SLS, and phthalates.

Pure Anada Mineral Blush in Sweet Pea. I reach for this earth rose warm coloured blush very often! It’s a beautiful option for a subtle cheek definition. I recommend really buffing it so that the mica in it will impart a soft glow on the skin. Sometimes mica can be too shimmery, but this finish is perfect. I do find that some of the product flakes off when I pick up the colour with the brush, which means this blush will be done sooner then I would like to. Another Canadian made cosmetic line! I like a cosmetic line that think not only about how green the ingredients they are using are, but also how eco friendly their packaging is. This range of blushes comes in a pan that inserts into a reusable magnetic compact. How cool is that!

NIGHT TIME VERSION OF THE LOOK

Smokey eyes. Eco Makeup Look inspired by winter

When in doubt – go smokey. It’s always the easiest way to amp up the look by adding a bit more darker colour around the eyes. You will only need one colour since you already have a few colours on the eyes already. I picked up the black shade from the trio eyeshadow with a pointy pencil brush and went along the lash line all around the eyes skipping the most inner corner. I really brought the lower shadow down by blending downwards for a more dramatic smokey look at the bottom. Then I took the dark colour to the outer corner crease to give more depth the eye. Black eyeshadow mixed with lilac resulted in a beautiful evening grey smokey eyes look.

Viola – an effortless and elegant makeup look created using mostly natural makeup products!

Day Date Makeup Look

Hello beautiful!

Welcome to Everyday Effortless Beauty Series by Klava Z, which is a weekly makeup series showing you how to do flawless, fresh, fun and natural looks for everyday life.

Before/After Makeup Look #2 Day Date, Natural Makeup, glow skin, pink lips, thin winged eye-liner, pretty date makeup

THE LOOK

Look#2 is called Day-Date. It’s pretty self-explanatory. πŸ™‚ Day date is an occasion where you don’t want to go all out and put a lot of makeup on because that would just look like you are trying too hard and who knows if another date would follow… just kidding. My version of Day-Date makeup is fresh and approachable, a natural you with a touch of cute and playful. Save the drama and sexiness for a night time vis-a-vis. With this being said, if you want to go for a glam look next time, there’s so much out there like the New Lion King Makeup Collection that you can check out, if you’re looking for new products to add to your makeup collection. πŸ˜‰ I haven’t been on a day date in a few years – babies are not very day date friendly. πŸ™‚ Also, you have to think about the light that you are doing the makeup for – the more natural light, the less makeup. That’s why if you are doing your makeup in the bathroom light it’s very important to do a natural light check before heading out. You just might notice that the blush needs to be blended a bit (or a lot) more.

This look is focused on enhancing your natural beauty by defining your eyes with an eyeliner with a small flick on the end, adding a slightly playful feel to makeup, keeping the rest neutral with soft pink glossy lip. It’s amazing what a simple eye-liner can do for the eyes! A properly applied eye-liner can make the eyes stand out more and define or even change their shape. I can also teach you how to apply it properly for your eye shape during a Makeup Lesson. I used to never leave the house without my eye-liner on. Now I have really embraced a no liner look (mostly due to laziness and lack of time) and reserve applying liquid liner for a night out.

Let’s get to the juicy parts – how to achieve this look.

Makeup Look #2 Day Date, pretty makeup, glowy skin, pink lips, winged eyeliner, natural makeup, makeup artist, girl going to a date

HOW TO

SKIN

Start with hydrated base. The foundation will go on better and will become one with your skin if it’s freshly moisturized. Always go for the most natural looking foundation, or you can try a BB or CC cream or a tinted moisturizer. The options are endless. Natural light is especially unforgiving to foundation mistakes, that’s why my vote is for the one that looks like your skin. You are just perfecting, not covering it.

EYES

Use a primer on the eyes to make sure that your liner won’t smudge and stay on well throughout the date. Even the most long-wearing eye-liner will start smudging after coming in contact with skin oils. Everybody is prone to oily eyelids, even people with dry skin. It’s that kind of a place that will always get greasy; hence the dreaded women foe – eye-shadow creasing. Swipe a light colour eye-shadow with a bit of shimmer to brighten the eyes and set the primer even more. Curl your lashes. Now you are ready for the eye-liner, which has it’s own big technique section below. Put lots of mascara on and groom your brows. Knowing the right techniques and tips to enhance your lashes and make them look fuller is something every girl dreams of, imagine having beautiful yet natural looking lashes that enhance your facial features and make you look as pretty as a princess, bringing out your smile and confidence – you can if you click here!

LIPS

Find the pretties light pink shade of lipstick that has a glossy finish to it to make your lips look plump. Finish with putting colour on your cheeks in a soft pink blush that matches your lipstick colour for that really girlie barely there flush.

TECHNIQUE TIP – EYELINER

If you haven’t mastered the eyeliner – don’t despair. It’s not easy, especially for certain eye-shapes and it takes practice. It really is all about the practice. Like with everything, the more you do it, the better you become at it. I still much prefer to do an eye-liner on somebody else then on myself. Also, there are different products you can use to do eye-liner. This tip is about the most challenging, but one with the biggest impact – liquid liner. I think I found the most perfect liquid eye-liner out there for now – find out which one in my list of key products below. Find the one that works for you, it might be half of the issue if you are struggling with your liquid liner. A lot depends on what kind of brush it has and how the liquid dries.

Flawless1-14

I usually do the base along the lash line first – a very thin one and try to get as close to the lash line as possible. My pet peeve is when I can see the gap between the lashes and the liner, which draws attention to the poor eye-makeup execution, instead of the eye. I was never able to do the line in one beautiful swoop. It’s much easier to draw in short strokes holding and pressing the liner so that you are using almost the side of it, not the very tip.

Now draw the flick starting from the outer corner aiming towards the temples. To find a perfect angle of the flick imagine as if you were lining the bottom lash line and extending it pass the outer corner in it’s natural trajectory. I hope that makes sense. This angle will give you just the right amount of flick upwards without making it look too retro but giving a nice lift to the eye. That’s the part that adds that playful element to the Day Date look.

Do start with the eye that’s harder for you to do, because it’s easier to match your stronger eye. For example, I’m right-handed, so it’s harder for me to do my left eye, so I start with this one. When matching the flick on the other side, tilt your head back slightly looking straight in the mirror – this way you will see the angle of your liner better.

After you have the base of the liner and the flick, go over the top to build a desired thickness, which in this case is not very much. I started the liner just shy of the inner corner not to make it too dramatic looking and thickened gradually towards the end.

Whew, you are done! You can have a glass of wine now (helpful to calm the nerves before a date and congratulate yourself on the eye-liner job well done). A few other helpful tips: keep your hand leaning on something for better balance and to control the shakiness and blink in between the eyeliner strokes to avoid blinking right as you are doing it. With liquid liner you have to work a bit faster because if you do too many back and forth the first layers might start to lift and crumble.

I will also be posting a short video of this technique on my Instagram @KlavaZ.makeup.

PRODUCTS

Here are the key products I used to achieve this look:

Flawless1-18

MAC Vanilla pigment. Probably one of the most used pigment by makeup artists. A pigment is a concentrated loose colour powder that can be used for a wash of colour or a more intense look, especially if used damp. This is an ivory white colour with a soft golden sheen. It’s also one of those multi-tasking products that can be used anywhere. Looks pretty as a highlighter on cheeks or mixed in the foundation for a more radiant finish or mixed in the lipgloss for extra sparkle.

Chantecaille Lip Chic in Primrose. My idea of a perfect soft cool tone pink that’s not too pale. This is a youthful light pink rose colour with a shiny gloss-like finish that doesn’t feel sticky. I love the fact that it is infused with collagen making the looks appear plumper and smoother and has no parabens (always a plus in my books). The colour intensity is medium and feels lightweight and soft on the lips.

Kat Von D Tatto Liner. This is my Holy Grail of liquid liners and I have tried many! It has the smartest brush tip shaped like a felt tip but with much more flexibility. Just the right amount of springy flexibility so that it draws exactly where you want it, instead of flopping around or being too stiff. The bristles come together into a very sharp point for those thin precise lines. On top of a brilliant brush design it is highly pigmented and has a long wear formula that is waterproof and transfer-resistant. Usually no liner can stand unsmudged against my very oily skin by mid day, but this one stayed on all day and only started to show signs of transfer by the end of it. The formula glides on smooth and dries fast.

MAC Brush #228. A mini shader that is perfect for more precise eye-shadow work or for those with smaller eyes. It’s small, flat dome-shaped brush that is fairly firm with a rounded edge. I actually used it to apply and smudge the powder eye-liner in the night time version of this look. It’s great for lower lash line smokey eye-liner application.

MAC Well Dressed Blush. It is described on MAC website as an Immaculate Pink. It has a very soft pink cool tone colour with a slight satin finish and looks like you have been kissed by a pink fluffy cloud. It’s a great blush for fair skin toned but might be too subtle on somebody darker. The texture is smooth and blends nicely.

NIGHT TIME VERSION OF THE LOOK

Flawless-20

Say your date went longer then anticipated (which is generally a good thing) or you are going out with girls after (to share the details of the day) and you are now in the evening territory. All you need to have with you is a dark grey eyeshadow and a brush to get yourself ready for darker lighting with a bit more oomph on the eyes. Go over the top liner with a small brush dipped in a darker shadow making it thicker and smoky. Line the bottom lash line also smudging the liner as you go along. Finish by blending a bit of the same colour in the outer corner crease in a classic V shape about one third of the way into the crease. This soft smokiness around the eyes adds instant sexiness and mystery. Just don’t go too heavy so that your makeup looks drastically different.

One other important thing – smile. Goes a long way on a date or anywhere, really. Audrey Hepburn knew what she was talking about saying that happy girls are the prettiest!

Let me know how it goes with this makeup look! You can post your version of Day Date Look #2 here or on Instagram with a tag #EffortlessbyKlavaZ. I would love to see how you did it!

Everyday #EffortlessbyKlavaZ Beauty Series
Look#1 Wakeup Makeup

Hello beautiful!

And so my Everyday #EffortlessbyKlavaZ Beauty Series begin with Look#1 Wakeup Makeup! Everyday #EffortlessbyKlavaZ is a weekly makeup series showing you how to do flawless, fresh, fun and natural looks for everyday life.

Collage before and after

I’m really excited to start this project that will hopefully be a source of inspiration for your everyday makeup. My mission with this beauty series is to provide variety of natural looking makeup ideas that women are excited to try on themselves! They are looks that anyone can create using something like Korean Makeup from Rojank or high end products. Because natural doesn’t have to be the same old boring. After working at various cosmetic counters for the past 8 years I heard the same story from so many women – how they are stuck in the makeup rut and don’t know how to do something different. Every week I will be posting a makeup look that is inspired by what’s happening in our everyday lives. I think makeup should be fun! It’s the way we accessories our faces and can be used to show our personality or mood. Makeup is a tool for self-expression and reinvention. I love the romance of makeup… how you can feel innocent and cute one day, and vamp the next day.

Since I had my lovely daughter 2 years ago I started to really appreciate makeup that doesn’t take long to do but has me feeling and looking my best. Of course, sometimes when I’m getting ready for a special occasion, I love spending 30 minutes on getting all glamed up. The reality of most women in now days busy lives is that we don’t have that kind of time every morning. I will be showing and breaking down how to create makeup looks that take 10-15 (sometimes even 5) minutes to finish and what products to use. I will also show how to add a bit of drama and amp up the look with a simple tweak.

As a professional makeup artist I enjoy playing with all kinds of different makeup, but the everyday fresh natural beauty looks are the ones that I gravitate to the most. Choosing the right makeup artist for any occasion can make all the difference to how you feel throughout the day. If you ever need the services of a professional makeup artist, you may want to click here for more information. Getting help from people who know what they are doing can save you a lot of time when it comes to deciding on your makeup look and trying out something new. We all have our personal preference at the end of the day. When it comes to the look in the photo, it’s that kind of a makeup look that is natural looking, sometimes with a hint of glam, bringing the best features and natural beauty out. It’s that effortless beauty that lets yourself shine! I love teaching women how to do it at my masterclasses!

I hope you will join me in this beauty journey and add a fun element in your morning to look forward to! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @KlavaZ.makeup and Facebook Klava Zykova Makeup Artist and Educator for everyday makeup inspiration.

THE LOOK

The first look in #EverydayEffortless Beauty Series is Wakeup Makeup.

Wakeup Makeup Collage, behind the scenes doing makeup, makeup products

I love January! It’s the promise of new that always makes me smile! New Year, new adventures, new goals and the whole idea of starting fresh in the new year. However, as much as my mind is excited for new things to come, my body feels a bit run down and in need of purging after all the holiday fun; purging the bad habits and my body after overindulging. I kind of feel the same way about my makeup routine. I have done my duty with sparkles, red lips and smokey Xlash styled eyes for all the holiday events I’ve attended and now craving for a fresh looking face. This makeup look is all about brightening the face and infusing subtle colour, hiding the evidence of too much partying and not having time to properly take care of myself. It’s sort of like instant detox effect. We know that it it will take awhile before our skin will start showing the results of detoxing with green smoothies, no sugar diets and extra yoga classes. So this is a great look to cheat and look fabulous right away while you are waiting for the results of your hard work of detoxing show up on your face. So let’s wake up our faces with this beautiful makeup look!

Wakeup Makeup look is focused on flawless radiant skin, pinched looking cheeks and rosy lips. I love how this rose lip and blush colour instantly brightens the whole face! This tone that’s not too warm or cool is flattering on most skin tones.

HOW TO

To achieve this look start with prepping your skin with an appropriate for your skin type moisturizer. One of the most important steps of your makeup is taking care of the canvas its going on to. You will hear me saying this a lot: “If your skin looks good, everything else will look good!” So never skip this first step. In this cold season that’s harsh on the skin it’s a good idea to add a hydrating serum or a heavier duty moisturizer.

Pick a foundation that is lightweight, hydrating, natural looking and adds a bit of glow to the skin. You can apply it with fingers or brush, whichever you are used to, focusing on the centre of the face and wherever else you need the coverage. Try to use as little as you can get away with so that your actual skin shows through.

TECHNIQUE TIP – PINCHED CHEEKS

Everyday #EffortlessbyKlavaZ Wakeup Makeup Look Rosy flushed cheeks

Use a blush in a rose tone. The placement of the blush is important and is the focus of my technique tip for this look. Smile to pop the apples of the cheeks and swirl the blush right in the middle blending in circles, making the circles bigger to blend out the edges. I used a dual fibre brush that is flat topped so that I can really buff in the colour to get intensity but with soft and blended edges, so it doesn’t look like a child has drawn circles on your cheeks. I will be posting a short video of this technique on my Instagram @KlavaZ.makeup.

No need for lots of makeup on the eyes, just define them with a neutral peachy colour eyeshadow and a bit of mascara. I used cream product for the eyes to get that natural glistening skin look. Use a light skin-tone colour eye-liner in the lower waterline to brighten the eyes. This is a great trick for tired looking eyes! Finish the look with a swipe of a creamy rose coloured lipstick.

You will feel and look awake, refreshed and pretty with this makeup!

PRODUCTS

Here are the key products I used to achieve this beautiful look.

Cosmetics

Burberry Light Glow Rose Blush #03. The texture is a dream to apply, it is finely milled, super smooth and easy to blend! The colour is slightly warm pink with a hint of sheen.

Burberry Kisses Lipstick Blush #77. Burberry cosmetic products are superior in texture (I wouldn’t expect anything less from this high-end brand). This gel textured lipstick is moisturizing, feel weightless on the lips, has a great colour pay of with a satin finish and stays on well. This is one of my go-to colours for brides – it’s just so pretty on the variety of skin tones!

MAC Cream Color Base Hush. This is a multi-tasking powerhouse – the ways to use it are endless – eyes, skin highlight, cheeks, anything really! The colour is the softest peachy cream with a pearl finish.

La Biosthetique Belavance Pencil For Eyes in Marble Silk. This is the only product I have from this French cosmetics line as it was a random purchase at a beauty supply store. It is a perfect nude colour with a hint of pink to use on the waterline. The texture is not too soft, so it doesn’t slide in the slippery area.

MAC Dual Fibre Brush #187. Stippling, dual fibre brush with dark firmer bristles on the bottom and white softer fibres on the top with a flat edge. It is great to use with pigmented products if you want to tone down the intensity. It’s a bigger brush, so great for bronzer application. Also can be used to apply liquid products, like foundation, for sheer coverage.

NIGHT TIME VERSION OF THE LOOK

wif_d_RMALPGPaxhJqeZ7-ng1Sl3eq6RwZqZ40siiVY

This effortless look works for so many occasions. If you would like to amp up the intensity you can add a neutral mid-tone brown eye-shadow all over the lids and as a bottom liner, like the model in this picture. I also swiped a bit of coral-brown eye-shadow in the crease to warm up the eyes and to stay with the brightening theme of the look.

Let me know if you try this look out and how did you like it. You can post your version of Wakeup Makeup Look #1 here or on Instagram with a tag #EffortlessbyKlavaZ. I would love to see how you did it! And don’t be shy to ask questions about this look! I also do makeup lessons and masterclasses, so if you are in Ottawa and would like to become a pro at your own makeup, check out my Educating page.

I hope that you will stick around and get inspired by my Beauty Series! This is just to give you ideas and get you excited about trying something new for you. My only rule is – if you like what you see in the mirror that’s all that matters when it comes to makeup. πŸ™‚

Have an effortless beauty day!

Let’s play!
