Today’s post is featuring some lovely cosmetics from Living Nature, a New Zealand based cosmetics and skincare brand which focuses on creating beautiful skincare, hair care, body care, and makeup products that are formulated with all natural and organic ingredients found in New Zealand nature. I was kindly sent some cosmetics to try out a smokey eye makeup look and, as you may know, I am a huge fan of Living Nature products so how could I resist?
Their cosmetics utilize a number of natural ingredients including avocado oil, macadamia oil and manuka honey in order to create beautiful makeup looks that are body-safe, eco friendly and gentle enough for those with sensitive skin and eyes.
Naturally Smokey Eye Makeup Look with Living Nature Cosmetics
Their cosmetics are so lovely and I’ve previously tried many of their skincare products and also their liquid foundation so I expected to love these makeup items as well and I was not disappointed!
The kit I was sent included 3 eye shadows in Sand (creamy vanilla – matte), Pebble (dark grey with some shimmer) & Slate (soft matte black) in a cute eye shadow quad compact as well as their Thickening and Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black and their award-winning Eye Liner Pencil in Midnight (black).
Here’s What the Eye Shadows Looked Like in the Compact:
Top Left: Pebble, Top Right: Sand, Bottom Left: Slate ♥
A Look At the Thickening Volume Mascara Wand:
The Eye Liner Pencil in Midnight:
Pardon the hair – I’m currently growing it out for a waxing experiment haha.
The swatches on the left are all of the eyeliner pencil, but the first one is smudged, the second applied with a light hand and the third is to show how pigmented it can be when you apply pressure and layer it up. The right swatches are (from left to right) of Sand (which you can’t see on my pale skin LOL), Pebble and Slate.
Here Is the Makeup Look I Came Up With:
A Closer Look:
This is with no filter in crappy bathroom lighting, but you can see it looks natural and it’s still very pigmented and you can build the color up. This is all just with one application – it could easily be layered up to be more intense.
All the Products Used to Create this Look:
All the Living Nature products mentioned above PLUS Alima Pure Satin Matte Foundation, Becca Balearic Love Palette (matte brown on brows), Rimmel Blush in Antique Rose, Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow for contouring, and I used to MAC Oval 6 Brush to apply the powder foundation. I also used ILIA Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Shell Shock on my lips, but I forgot to include it in the photo for some reason!

I hope you liked the makeup look and definitely check out these lovely Living Nature Cosmetics because they really seem to live up to conventional standards without all the hazards and toxins that come in drugstore brands. Instead, they opt for all natural and organic plant ingredients and offer more gentle, eco friendly ingredients and packaging so you can feel good about using their products without worry.
