My Natural Make-up Look: “Black + White Sporty Chic” Shoot

My Natural Make-up Look: “Black + White Sporty Chic” Shoot

My natural make-up look from the shoot

For this shoot, I wore mostly black with a splash of white – and so I decided to go for a smoky eye with a very natural look for the rest of my face. This make-up look was all about the eyes.

I always prefer to use natural make-up and skincare products on my face and skin – and when I’m filming videos or taking photos, it’s no different.

I’ve tried many natural products over the years (some were good and some were not-so-good), and so I thought I’d show you how I get my make-up looks naturally.

My favorite natural make-up products from the shoot

It’s so hard to choose my favorite natural makeup product, because I love them all – but for this shoot, these were my faves!

Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Trio (in Smoky Grey) – because this look was all about the eyes. This eyeshadow is great for creating an effortless smoky eye (check out my full review for HB Eyeshadow Trio).

Honest Beauty Lip Gloss – because I wanted a natural looking lip, but I still wanted them to pop a little bit (check out my full review for HB Lip Gloss).

    Hi Liezl,
    I would just like to comment on how amazing your blog is! I am a HUGE fan of your blog and I have told all my class mates about you! I really want to start getting of eating processed foods and cook more but its really hard because I am balancing school, soccer and homework. I really want to work on not calorie restricting and feeling bad after eating something. I am going to start your 14 day plan tomorrow before winter break! Thank you for this amazing blog and keep doing what your doing you are so inspiring! And when you liked my instagram pic (leannetakesajourney) I almost started to cry!

      Hey Leanne! THANK YOU for this sweetest comment 🙂 You are lovely! Yes, I remember you from Instagram! Balancing lots of things in life, while trying to focus on health and diet can be though. Just do the best that you can, and don’t beat yourself up if you fail once or twice. You can achieve anything that you set your mind to! I hope that you enjoy using the 14 day eating plan over winter break, and please let me know how it goes 🙂 Wishing you all the best on your journey! Liezl XOXO
