True Beauty Is Cruelty Free


This get the look featuring a super cute puppy will warm your heart as well as your winter makeup wardrobe, with gorgeous glowy skin, earthy eyes and a sensuous plum lip. Created by organic makeup artist Cathy Tolpigin, using the perfect mix of luxe, eco-makeup from Kjaer Weis, Gressa, Au Naturale Cosmetics and Axiology.

Luxe, Cruelty-Free Get The Look


First, prep skin with your favourite skin oil; we used Kjaer Weis’ Beautiful Oil for this look to add extra luminosity and glow to model Elsa’s skin, and because it works in perfect harmony with Kjaer Weis’s Cream Compact Foundation, also used in this look; Elsa wears Just Sheer, but check which shade is best suited to you. Blend the cream foundation with the warmth of your fingertips for the most flawless, natural finish.

To define and warm up cheekbones, Gressa’s Contouring Serum Bronzer is perfect for adding blendable definition and a healthy, sunkissed winter glow all over the face, but focus on the lower cheekbones for contour. Apply this liquid bronzer using your fingertips or a foundation brush.

Gressa Illuminating serum was used next to create highlight on Elsa's upper cheekbones, brow bones and cupid’s bow.


A beautiful base is finished with a sweep of cream blush applied just to the apples of the cheeks. Kjaer Weis’ Abundance, a plummy taupe with an iridescent finish, gives cheeks a modern glow.


To create this fresh and natural eye makeup, use Au Naturale creme eyeshadows.  Apply Ivory all over your eyelid, with extra in the centre, to create your natural base, then add Coffee to the outer corners and crease of the eyelid, blending with your fingertips or eyeshadow brush, to add definition and really open up the eyes. Next apply Saddle as an eyeliner to the upper and lower lash line, blending for a softer finish. Complete your eye makeup with lashings of your favourite natural mascara.


And don’t forget your brows! Eyebrows are important to frame the face and give makeup a natural and professional finish. EcoBrow’s Defining Wax in Sharon is used to shade in sparse hair and define the brow shape.


Axiology Lip Crayon in Enchant completes this wonderful winter makeup, that looks beautiful day and night.
