Today I am taking a look at some new make up products from Green People, the brand has released three new lip crayons and an illuminating eye duo. I already own and love a lot of Green People make up and it is without a doubt one of my favourite brands. The lip pencils come in three shades: Praline is a matte brown shade which is surprisingly flattering, Blossom is a light pink which has a sheen to it and Sangria is a burnished red.
All three lip pencils are very comfortable to wear, blossom feels a little more moisturising than the darker shades but none of them make my lips feel dry at all. If you suffer from dry lips Green People has also released a new primer/lip balm to use with these. The lasting power is very good 4-6 hours without needing to reapply, if you are eating and drinking a lot during the day then you may well need to reapply a little sooner. These contain some beautiful botanicals such as baobab and Shea butter and are carmine free although not vegan as they do contain beeswax.

The simple daytime make up looks above were created using only Green People make up.
For foundation I used the Pressed powder foundation in Caramel light which has a SPF of 15 and offers good coverage without being cakey, I apply it with a large kabuki brush and then using a concealer brush use the powder to conceal under the eyes and on any blemishes. For the eyes I used the Night Forest eye duo, the shade Tawny owl all over the lid and using Mink brown on the outer corners and crease. Using slate grey from the City sky duo as a soft liner and finishing off with the Volumising mascara in Black. I finished the skin off by using the Pressed powder in Caramel medium as a bronzer and added a little of the illuminating eye duo* on the brow bone and cheek bone. Finishing the whole look with the lip crayons. I was really pleased with the finish. The powders do need to be applied to well moisturised skin but the finish is very nice and the pigmentation is very good. I didn’t use an primer for the eye shadows but if you do it makes the colours pop a little more, these are the only eye shadows that don’t crease on me without a primer so I am thrilled to have found them.
The Illuminating eye duo (£17.50) contains two light shimmer shades which are great for highlighting the eyes and cheeks. Pearl is a silver shimmer and satin is a warmer shade, both are very pretty, flattering and easy to wear. Just like all of the Green People powders they are soft and buttery, if you are not careful they can create some fallout but I find gently tapping the brush in to the products helps with that. The powders are talc free and enriched with jojoba and sunflower oil.
I am very impressed with Green People’s new releases and I wanted to show that organic make up really has come a long way, so much so that not only can you have an all organic look but a one brand look too.
