Makeup from flower petals?

zuii organic makeup review

When it comes to natural organic products and makeup, Zuii Organic is my absolute number one choice. It doesn’t really get any better than that – and let me tell you why.

What’s impressive about the brand to me is how it combines ecological values, pure and unique ingredients and great quality products. But that doesn’t necessarily convince you. I hear you – and I’ve gathered some proof.

Here is an example. This is Zuii’s makeup powder – an awesome makeup base, that I’ve been using for years now. It’s core base is made from flower petals. And no – I’m not kidding you. Here is the ingredient list:

ROSA DAMASCENA FLOWER*
JASMINUM OFFICINALE (JASMINE) FLOWER*
CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER*
SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL*
ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE*
MICA
CAPRYLIC CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE
CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA FLOWER EXTRACT*
EQUISETUM ARVENSE EXTRACT*
URTICA DIOICA (NETTLE) LEAF EXTRACT*
MAGNESIUM STEARATE
TOCOPHEROL
ASCORBYL PALMITATE

As you can see, the first three ingredients on the list truly are flowers:

ROSA DAMASCENA FLOWER*
JASMINUM OFFICINALE (JASMINE) FLOWER*
CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER*

The whole ingredient list is pretty readable too (and awesome), but let’s not get into that too much. Because I know there are people, that don’t necessarily care about the ingredients as much as the actual results.

The flower base makes all Zuii’s powder products extremely smooth and easy to work with. It’s different to other powder products I’ve tried and the only reason I can come up with is the special flower recipe. The makeup powder isn’t totally matte – it leaves a natural glow to the skin unless you powder it. If I compare it to mineral makeup, I think it’s a bit softer and leaves almost like a blurred finish.

But let’s get to the results: Here is how the makeup powder looks on the face:

The natural ingredients make the products very nourishing – but they can be used on oily skin too. Actually, there are some ingredients in the products, that balance oil production and reduce inflammation. The makeup powder is best on my face during the colder months, when my skin is not as oily as in the Summer, but I still use it through the whole year. It stays better of course with a primer and a powder so you can combine it with whatever products you have. These are not one of those products, that only work together – they can be combined with other (say, synthetic) products as well.

I have small collection of Zuii products and the newest addition is the new Lip & Cheek Creme, which I received as pr. As you can probably tell, it is a cream blush and lipstick in a beautiful diamond packaging. The shade I received is Janus, which is a neutral red. At first I though it was too warm for me, but it actually looks great on my complexion.

You can swipe the product on gently with your fingers to get the no-makeup-makeup look, but if you apply it with a brush, the color gets more intense. As usual – there is a lot of pigment in this amazing product. Lately I’ve been into cream products more – they are perfect for glowy looks or if your skin is at all dry.

Definitely a new diamond in my makeup bag (ha ha).

Tutorial: Multitasking with makeup

It may sound weird, but whenever I’m doing other people’s makeup – I usually am too busy to do my own face. I like to do my makeup in peace, but on work days I just feel like there’s not enough time – or maybe I just prefer using the time to enjoy my coffee. I still want to look professional so I do wear makeup (obviously if I’m doing your makeup, you’re gonna judge my makeup/my skills a bit). But for work occassions, I usually get ready pretty quickly.

Let’s take this makeup, for example. Here I’m wearing a good base, mascara and some color on my brows. Then I took three products and used them all over the face to make it look like I made more of an effort. I multitasked with three products to save time. And to make the makeup look more fun and to show my personality.

Scared to use colors in your makeup? Here are great tips to use color in your everyday makeup, subtly.

The three products that worked for the whole face are a blush, a lipstick and a highlighting palette.

Here is a quick tutorial on how multitask with those three products and get ready quickly!

Before After quick makeup

A blush
I used a peachy pink blush on my cheeks and as an eyeshadow. They match perfectly so it looks great – you don’t have to worry about your blush arguing with your lid color. You can apply it with a brush or with your fingers – I just used my fingers.quick makeup tutorial

  1. Apply the blush at the center of the cheeks and blend upwards. This works best for square-face shapes, but it can work for other face shapes as well. It gives you a young, fresh look.fresh makeup tutorial
  2. Apply the blush all over the lid and a bit above the crease – so that you can see the color a bit when eyes are open.

A lipstick
 I used a fresh pink lipstick on my lips and also as an eyeshadow. I have worn lipstick on my eyes before too (post!), but of course you need to be sure it’s safe for your eyes. Zuii’s lipstick is organic and made from natural oils, waxes etc. so it’s safe for my eyes too. Actually, if you look at their ingredient list they have pretty similar ingredients! I took a tiny bit of the lipstick on my little finger and used it on my outer corner to give my eyes a bit of an contour.multitasking makeup

3. Apply the lipstick to your lips as usual. If it tends to get to your fine lines, line your lips first.

4. Take a bit of the lipstick to your index finger and press it on the outer corners of your eyes. Blend it upwards and towards your lids, in a V-shape. It acts as a cream eye shadow, so it’s super easy to blend.

A highlighter
Highlighter, the perfect way to make your skin look glowy and fresh! Highlight also works great as an eyeshadow. I applied the highlight on my face and on my inner corners.

5. Highlight your face the way you want. The pink dots show you, where to highlight. (Of course, you apply it wherever you like. You choose your glow level.)

6. Apply the higlighter to your inner corners. Here I used a brush, just because my fingers are too clumsy for such small area.

When you’re using the same stuff all over your face – they are obviously gonna match perfectly.
