Get the Look: Natural Sun Kissed Glow Using Vegan Makeup

I made a promise to myself that this year, I would take the time to get dolled up more often. So far, I’ve been pretty good about it. I’m pretty particular about what I put on my skin, so typically, I opt for a fresh face with just mascara and lipgloss. Then, I found Arbonne who has ethical, vegan and naturally derived skincare, makeup, and nutritional products. I’m pro-not testing on animals. I also don’t eat land animals, so I try not to buy products that contain animal byproducts, either. I gave Arbonne cosmetics a shot and I LOVE them. I like to keep my makeup looks natural, so I bought what I know I’d use. This was my first attempt at a “look” and I dig it. So, I wanted to share what I used and some of my novice makeup tips. Let’s face it, I don’t normally wear makeup, so I’m not even going to pretend like I know what I’m doing.

I used 4 shades of eyeshadow to create a sunsetty ombre. Evenly made stripes and then blended them. (See, I told you my tips were novice, but, hey.. it worked!) I did two coats of “It’s a Long Story” mascara. BOOM!

Shades: dawn, solar, quartz, opal

I have a thin upper lip, so one of the hacks I keep coming across says to do a lip liner towards the outside of your lip to fake fullness. It’s not perfect, but I see where it’s going. Haha Personally, I either do a super bold red lip or a more neutral color, so I really love this combo for a natural lip look.

Lipstick: Magnolia, Lip liner: Peach

Since my esthetician sassed me over not wearing sunblock every day, SPF is the number one thing I look for in makeup these days. The foundation and setting powder have me covered with SPF 15! I did foundation and setting power all over, smiled to apply blush on my cheeks, and did bronzer on my temples and sweeped it below my cheek bones… with a little swoop across my forehead and chin. Again… novice tips but for those that don’t speak makeup, it may help you.

Foundation: fair, Powder: translucent, Bronzer: Glow On, Blush: Blossom

I had a lot of fun putting this blog together. I’m typically a natural, hippie type, but getting dolled up, even in a natural look is always nice! Please check back for more beauty tips and product highlights. Also, if you’re a MUA and would like to be featured, please email me at

    Your makeup looks great. I have to get the sun kissed look with makeup because my pale self can’t hang outside without loads of sunscreen!

    This looks like a great brand of make-up. I don’t wear make-up, but I will tell my friends and family about it.

    Your eyes look lovely. The shade is beautiful and the fact that it is vegan makes my heart oh so happy. Do you like the staying power of it? I’d love to learn more,

      I do! It lasted a long time. The makeup stays nice, doesn’t cake or melt off. The lipsticks are probably my favorite because they’re super creamy and moisturizing.

    Oh I love how this looks! You look refreshed and not overdone. I am all for the natural look and like that it is minimal makeup put on but does give a sun kissed look. I will have to look into this line, thanks!

    You look lovely! I don’t wear a ton of make-up so a natural look is preferred when I do. Loving that it’s all vegan, too!

    I had no idea that there was vegan makeup and I love the idea of having healthy products to coat your skin. Thanks for sharing this with us.
