How To Launch Your Search For The Best All Natural Foundation
Posted on August 02 2020
As a makeup artist and beauty champion for the everyday real woman I have helped thousands of women and men find the best personal skincare treatments and cosmetics. I start with the question, "What do you want to change?" and the words begin to flow.
It all begins with YOU. You're most likely here reading this article because you needed information to help address a cosmetic concern that brings you a bit of torment. The most common concerns my clients want to see change are wrinkles, dryness, sun spots and acne.
Now I'm not the type to just conceal and go. I want to help you be better to your skin and body. I want to help you IMPROVE your skin. For me, its either all or nothing. If you are wearing something on your skin it might as well work and be good for you.
Take away two things after reading this. First, I want to introduce a topic you may not be very familiar with. Second, I want you to take some products to sample. Just like we would in a Sephora, Ulta or your favorite department store.
If we were together and you were in my chair that would be fabulous. We'd have it easy. I'd have access to your beautiful face and educate you on how to be happy with your skin care and makeup routine.
Unfortunately, we are not together at the moment and a makeup artist's work "in person" at least has been put on hold. So let's have a chat here and see where it takes us. I am still using my hands.
The Future of Beauty is ALL NATURAL + NON TOXIC
Creator and Makeup Artist Cynthia Sansone launched Life On Mars with a mission that is dedicated to all natural and non toxic cosmetics. Since the brand's founding in 2015 Life On Mars offers an alternative to the conventional assortment of beauty products to thousands of clients who already made the switch.
LOM has done all the work for you by removing toxic ingredients that are harmful to your body. All you need to do is choose the best skincare and colors. Just like when shopping for your regular makeup. There is no difference.
Well that's not true. If you make the switch your saving your skin and body from:
- Mineral Oils
- Artificial Colors
- Artificial Fragrances
That's just a portion of what your leaving behind when you make the switch to non-toxic, all natural ingredients so your skin is safe.
What's in it that's good for you? Here are just a few of the beneficial organic ingredients that go into our skin care and makeup.
- Cocoa Seed
- Essential Oils
- Power Antioxidants
- Green Tea
- Vitamin E
- Laminaria Algae
- Hibiscus Abstract
Some products also contain CBD. If you have or know someone with joint pain I recommend Laid Back Joynt Cream with CBD.
Kiss your toxic makeup goodbye!
BE BOLD and make the switch.
Coming up we'll talk about how to try Life On Mars beauty and get a Free Foundation + Moisturizer Sample Kit.
What do YOU want to change?
Tell me about your routine and concerns and I will tell you what I recommend sampling from Life On Mars. It's that easy.
Sun Damaged or Aging Skin Scenario
A woman uses her fingers to point out sun spots that have accumulated from years of soaking up the sun. I am honest with my clients. I advise them softly that damage from the elements like the sun over time make the skin dull and lackluster. The glow is missing and you want it back. This is probably the most common concern I address for real woman of all ages every single day.
How To Fix It
I scream for LOM cream! It is my GO TO for everyday beauties and it's all I use professionally for brides, mothers of the bride and grandmothers of the bride. Life On Mars Organic Weightless Foundation + Concealer gives you excellent coverage without the weigh down. It’s jammed packed with skin conditioners like organic coconut oil, cocoa butter and jojoba oil, but doesn’t leave your skin oily, only smooth and hydrated. This versatile performer doubles as a lightweight concealer wherever coverage is needed.
Weightless Foundation was created to blend with your skin tone so you can’t make a mistake when applying. You will never see a line between your chin and neck because LOM foundation is so creamy and blendable.
Why it's good for you:
- Nourishing Vitamin E supports healing skin
- Organic coconut, jojoba seed, castor seed oil & cocoa seed butter hydrate skin
- 88% Organic
- Gluten Free
- Cruelty Free
- Made in the USA
I recommend applying after moisturizing. Our #1 Seller RA Cream, Organic Total Protection Moisturizer SPF 30 creates a luminescent dewy glow that gives your skin a youthful brilliance and supple feel.
I also recommend RA due to its ability to protect from the aging elements. This lightweight everyday cream protects against damaging environmental stressors like sun, snow and pollution helping prevent photoaging, age spots and wrinkles.
RA is rich in protective plant extracts such as rhatany root and green tea, the unique blend of botanical protectors defend, rejuvenate and hydrate leaving the skin soft and radiant without the weight or the white.
Use with the Deluxe Foundation Brush for fast and flawless application.
A client is wandering the displays testing out several lines looking for full coverage makeup that covers breakouts and checks off most of the boxes but not all. They have two main concerns. First will using makeup clog the pores and second will it look and feel heavy. In my experience when it comes to acne coverage clients will accept the heavy look concern to cover up. You don't have to settle! I can understand why this can be a tough search. There are so many full coverage makeups to choose from and yes absolutely some of them could react with your skin making breakouts more active and frequent.
How To Fix It
You are not alone. I myself struggle with oily breakout prone skin. The key to concealing properly and naturally is preparing your skin for the makeup. Use a moisturizer that softens and smooths out the breakout bumps. You don't want to use just any moisturizer. If you are acne prone you'll need one that helps control oiliness and of course one that will improve your skin while it acts as a barrier to your skin. If you are acne prone I suggest prepping your skin with Maru Skin Balancing Face Cream. Then I want you to apply the (you guessed it) Life On Mars Organic Weightless Foundation + Concealer because of its excellent coverage, light feel and most importantly all natural non toxic ingredients that can potentially cause more breakouts.
Maru Face Cream is a light moisturizer formulated with flower acids to help decongest pores and red clay to control oil and refine the skin’s surface while our antiseptic properties will help control break outs. This unique moisturizer leaves your skin pH balanced and imparts a soft matte finish.
And ladies, It's a great daily moisturizer for the guys. If they use one thing, make it this. It's my go to.
Dry Aging Skin Scenario
Clients concerned with dry aging skin seem to be the most enthusiastic to meet me and jump in the chair. While they are unhappy about their dry aging skin they are not as tortured as my ladies and gents with acne or sun spots. The people I meet in beauty environments often times have a lot of personality. Believe it or not there's a lot of psychology that goes into being a makeup artist. We are really people feel good about themselves and that can be a sensitive topic for many.
People with dry aging skin want their skin to look healthier and that is easy. In general aging skin is probably the number one reason we seek beauty products. Whether we are going from 30 to 40 or 60 to 70 there is aging happening. Our skin's depleted from exposure to the elements, based habits and stress.
How To Fix It
Dry skin has a thirsty! Break out the liquid. There are two steps to get healthy satin skin. Moisturize then apply a liquid foundation over. Let the moisturizer quench your skins thirst then blend the liquid foundation over it. If you use RA Cream first then apply Space Face Ethereal Organic Liquid Foundation you will see your foundation will last longer and your makeup will not look like makeup. Your foundation makeup will look like healthy skin. So simple.
There are no harmful ingredients in this foundation, feed your skin with the nourishing ingredients made in the USA using natural ingredients that are 90% organic and feature natural sun protection, gluten free, vegan, non GMO ingredients.
I recommend a light dusting of loose or pressed mineral powder to set the makeup. It does a few things. A bit of powder will help your makeup last even longer plus help with resistance to sweat or moisture if you are working out.
You have a few options.
Loose or Pressed? You want both.
Loose is great for everyday makeup. Add a pressed powder for on the go touch-ups and face refreshers.
