I have loved makeup ever since I hit about age sixteen. [I was kind of a late bloomer. But I guess at least I bloomed.] I don't wear a ton but I have a giant powdery drawer of it that I really enjoy rummaging around in. Putting on makeup is kind of like drawing on your own face, which for me = fun.
Lucky for me, I've got a friend that owns a homemade organic makeup company called Bella Faith Cosmetics. When the fabulous and talented Tiffany isn't working as a costume designer on movies and tv shows, she's making her own makeup from really pure ingredients. All the colors are natural and the shimmer comes from actual mica powder [a mineral]. She gave me some goodies to test, and I have to say, they're such little pots of powdery deliciousness that go on so velvety smooth and natural. And the shimmer is really even and gorgeous. [In these pictures I'm wearing a combination of Wishful and Hazelnut Coffee shadow.]
There's something really appealing to me about putting on makeup that is made entirely of naturally occurring substances, especially since it's going on the sensitive skin right by my eyes.
