Aveda makeup - what i love and why i love it

did you know that Aveda has their own line of makeup? so many clients and friends that i talk with have NO idea about this fantastic makeup line! Aveda's makeup line was originally introduced as skincare with tint, but the name didn't stick but the ingredients did! all Aveda makeup is formulated without parabens, talc or mineral oil, which are known to have negative side effects when used in cosmetics.

Aveda makeup covers everything from eyes, lips, cheeks, face and they even have amazing brushes and compacts. like any other line of products there are always things you love, and some things you could leave and not be heart broken about. i'll let you know a few of my favorites from each category and tips on how to use them!

1. nourish-mint lip definer: used as a lip primer to smooth and define lips and helps lip color from fading, features spearmint and sweet vanilla aroma.
2. nourish-mind rehydrating lip glaze in beach thistle & coral sea: rehydrates lips up to 25%, smoothes fine lines in lips, uses pomegranate as an anti oxidant and gives amazing shine with a hint of color.
