Shoot with Eliza

Last Friday I had the pleasure of doing a photoshoot with Eliza, my friend and yoga teacher. We had the most beautiful autumn day in Madrid, though the temperatures hit nearly 28 degrees in the afternoon!

Her look was to be soft and beautiful to let her natural beauty shine through!  I had just been sent some samples of Dutch makeup artist, Ellis Faas’ new skin veil foundation which I was eager to try out and this seemed like the perfect occasion as Eliza is also Dutch! I used the palest sample I had on Eliza, S102 which was perfect for her. It lasted so well all afternoon and didn’t look heavy on her face, it’s great, I really like it.  I then added a light dusting of Avene powder followed by a good coat of mascara from Greek brand Korres.  On her lips I then used their lip butter in Quince which can double as a creamy cheek blush also. We alternated this with another greek brand, Apivita, I used their lip balm in black currant which is a soft red wine colour. So it was a kind of ‘natural Greek lip day!’. Both Korres and Apivita are natural, partly organic makeup and cosmetic brands, what’s more they are of course cruelty-free  :)  I prepped her skin with Sanoflore’s Essence Merveilleuse which is actually a night serum, but it smells divine, is totally organic and perfect for massaging into the skin before making up.
