Everyday Make Up (With Lavera)

Its time for a new beauty post!

Finally! I have been missing my beauty posts but since I am only blogging twice a week and since I love posting my Monday outfits there is only one post per week related to something else than my boring looks ;) in these last couple of weeks food was more important to me than beauty so I posted mainly food related things on Thursday. And I have all those food posts waiting to be posted in the coming weeks too... but TODAY is a beauty Thursday :)  

Lavera. Lavera was the first beauty brand I reviewed for you on my blog aaaaaall the way back in 2013 (you can find the post here) and around once or twice a year I brought some Lavera products back to the blog to remind you how much I like this brand ;) 
I currently use a Lavera shower gel, a Lavera body butter, my husband washes his hair with Lavera shampoo, and my baby is always getting some Lavera baby oil in her bath tub when she is taking a bath. So Lavera definetly is part of my everyday. I already wrote back in my first post about this brand that my mother already used to use their products and hence, I know Lavera since childhood. Since, the brand has changed from being a niche in the organic cosmetics section to being a modern, colorful, popular and trendy brand, playing a huge role on the organic beauty market.

All products from Lavera are 100% organic, 100% cruelty free, 100% made in Germany, and 100% free of parabenes, mineral oil etc. - but you know that already because I would not promote this brand as big if it were`nt so ;) 

Anyway, so today is all about MAKE UP!  

Those of you who follow me for a while, know that I am not a make up pro and I am not wearing loads of make up. I cannot live without a really good blush, eye brow pencil and mascara though. These three things definetly are my essentials. I like to add some lip stick too, and sometimes I also wear eyeliner. Rather rarely I make use of make up or eye shadow but this does not mean I never do. I really love to put make up on, I just rarely feel like its the right occasion to do so. Anyway. I got this hyper wonderful package from Lavera to show you their idea of an everyday make up. Well, it fits (almost) perfectly with my idea of what a great everyday make up would consist of :) 

So here is what we you can see of the picture:

The Natural Mousse MakeUp Ivory
The Natural Mousse Blush Classic Nude 
The Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadow Mono Shiny Taupe 
The Intense Volumizing Mascara 
The Soft Eyeliner Golden Brown 
The Eyebrow Pencil Blond 
And the Brilliant Care Oriental Rose Lipstick 

All links go to the German version of the website but you can just change the language to English :) 

After taking the obligatory pictures of the new in products I used all of them to create my very own Lavera everyday look. I felt really pretty afterwards ;) 

But, more importantly, the products were all really nice to my skin and easy to use. I was surprised how soft the eyeliner was and how easy it was to apply make up and blush (when I first saw them I thought they will be rather hard and difficult to apply). 

The make up is very light, which I like because I always prefer to look natural and I do not want to feel pasted up. The blush has a very soft color which I find great (even though I usually use a stronger color) plus its a cream blush and I have been looking for a cream blush everywhere! My husband found one from a Greek brand called Korres and gave it to me for Christmas and now, lucky me, I got another one! The eyebrow pencil has a perfect brown color and is really soft too and the eye liner in golden brown is so much better than a black one! Well at least when you have rather light hair as I do, and when you do are going for a simple make up. The eye shadow has this really nice soft and slightly shiny color which I would probably not wear in a everyday make up but which is beautiful for special occasions or nights out. The mascara is great too, yet I think I prefer my other mascara from Lavera (which I showed you back here) because its somehow richer. And finally, the lipstick - its creamy, pinky, shiny and makes my lips feel so nourished!  

On the pictures, I have to say, it really looks like a light everyday make up, very natural, I would say. In reality it was slightly too much for me (because of the eye shadow I think. I just do not really use eye shadow during the day) but I felt pretty. I went out for a coffee date after taking these pictures and when I came home the make up still was were it was supposed to be - so nothing bad to say about durability :)  

How do you like these products on me? Do you think I look like a slightly too busy mother which is not getting enough sleep or like a fresh young woman after a very good nights sleep ;)??? (I guess its something in between ;))

Wow, guys, I wrote a lot. Now just make sure to check out or and let me know if you have any questions. 
I will now take this pretty make up off, put a Lavera face mask on, and jump on the couch, reading my new book and drinking some hot lemon water :)

Sending loads of love to you!
