Have you heard about the Clean Beauty Revolution? Au Naturale is changing the way makeup is made, and it’s all for the better.
Ashley Prange, nuclear analyst, wanted to go au natural, but didn’t want to go without makeup. She kept having reactions and breakouts from makeup, but didn’t want to stop using it. So, she set out to create her own makeup.
“Her mission was to use exclusively healthy, natural & ethically sourced ingredients in order to develop a replacement for each and every product in her former beauty routine” – Au Naturale Website
Their Mission: The #CleanBeautyRevolution.
The Clean Beauty Revolution is what makes Au Naturale unlike many other natural cosmetics brands, that being said there are some really great natural cosmetics available such as Waterlilies And Company. From day one, each ingredient has been scrutinized before being included into a formulation, only those who are ethically sound, factually healthy & naturally sourced making the final cut. And from day one, the company has been determined to provide consumers with much more than a line of healthy products.
What I love about Au Naturale is their huge variety of products and color options they provide. As of 2017 they offer:
Lip Stains/Lip Glosses/Lipsticks Lip Pencils
vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, gluten free, sustainably made & ethically sourced.
hand made in their own lab in Green Bay, WI.
FREE domestic shipping on orders over $50
I tried 2 Au Naturale products, their Stain Matte Lip Stain and their Pure Powder Highlighter.
I loved how sleek the packaging and containers are for the makeup. I have seen and used several other ‘free’ makeups but nothing with such high quality materials and such beautiful design. I love knowing that these products are toxic free. Nothing unsavory is on my skin or absorbing into my body. I try to take care of my body, inside and out, so knowing that I am not harming myself is a huge sigh of relief. Keeping the skin youthful-looking and rejuvenated is the mission of women all over the world and, thankfully, there are many things on the market that can help them do this such as these beverly hills md products available online to try out for yourself to improve your overall skin health.
Au Naturale Lip Stain comes in 10 shades, giving all skin tones something to lean towards. I love pinks but also love purples. I have caucasian skin, but tan easily and get several shades darker for the summer and fall months. My lips seem to really fade to the background when I put on any shades that are too close to my natural skin and lip color. This is frustrating to me and causes me to have a hard time finding lipsticks that I can wear that boost my natural look. Even with a lip lift surgery to tighten the skin of the lips, Au Naturale Lip Stain adds that extra pop over color to heighten my look. Using Au Naturale Lip Stain has been such a joy for me. I love how it stays on, gives my lips a natural looking color boost without being too overpowered. The Lip Stain does not fade into my lips making it look like I am not wearing anything but rather showcasing them in a fun and safe way.
The color I am using is “Purple Reign”
I have never used a highlighter before 2017. I tried one out a few months ago when I was trying out new makeup with my cousin and fell in love with the concept. A highlighter is typically used after your makeup is on and complete; it is the final step. It sets your work, adds a radiant illumination and a soft focus finish to your face and décolletage. Au Naturale has 3 Pure Powder Highlighter shades: begonia (pinky), Moondust (silverish) and Halcyon (goldish). I am using the Begonia.
This product sprays out in powdered form. You can spray directly on your face where you want to work it in, or you can spray onto your hand and collect with your application brush. Either way works. It is a very fine and delicate power, making it easy to apply and not ‘over do’ your face. Often times products like a highlighter can go on too heavy and make you look like you dumped the product on your face. Au Naturale’s Highlighter is so
