They gave me the challenge of illustrating the below in pictures and if you read on you will find news of an exciting competition!

Nature inspires me everyday, the colour of the falling leaves, winter blooms and even the crisp clear sky. When I’m looking for inspiration for colour in makeup I always turn to nature. It has the natural gradient the perfect combination of shades combined with a juxtapose of textures. A beautiful soft rose on a thorny aggressive stem. I was looking to write a post on ruby lips products and found the most beautiful flowers that created my product shoot. I used the Fujifilm instax mini 8 to take some retro images so that it could be an image inside an image.

You’re never far from nature whether you’re a big city dweller or country bumpkin there’s always natural beauty to be found but we must be conscious about our living to protect this environment.

I find nature everywhere but in particular I love to go to wooded parks and countryside for the rogue plants and colourful berries. Being a makeup artist I am always thinking of colour and find myself standing taking pictures of sunsets, blooms,insects,  falling leaves and even a decaying forest floor. It’s all nature and if it wasn’t for it we wouldn’t be here.

The packaging is natural too? They are printed with vegetable based inks and you won’t find shrink wrap here. They saved 1400 miles of plastic by creating a new tamper evident label. Now that’s amazing!
