First impressions matter and so do second and third.
I’m starting a new job, and I thought it was important to put together a few new hairstyles and natural makeup looks for the workplace.
I put together a natural makeup look using Mineral Fusion makeup. Mineral Fusion is an all natural skincare and makeup line.
Since my last makeup lesson, I learned that mascara is an essential part to a beauty regimen. It’s a simple step that changes your face completely.
No More Racoon Eyes:
I have smaller eyes. My mascara and eyeliner usually smudge and smear all over my face giving me the dreaded raccoon eyes look. I found that with Mineral Fusion waterproof mascara, my mascara doesn’t smudge. It stays on my eyelashes.
The waterproof mascara from Mineral Fusions provides a softer, natural look for a subtle change.
As a bonus, Mineral Fusion waterproof mascara enhances your natural beauty, while also nourishing your eyelashes with the Aragon Oil, Aloe, and Panthenon.

Natural Look from Natural Products:
Achieving a natural look that was also naturally and consciously handmade in the USA makes you feel good from the inside out.
There are so many chemicals in makeup and I love that Mineral Fusion cosmetics are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and that they use natural ingredients for sensitive skin. And they use energy efficient methods such as wind power and sustainable packaging to leave a smaller environmental impact.
All-Body Creme for Smooth Skin:
I think the first step to achieving a natural look is to protect your skin. And to do that, it starts by drinking water and by moisturizing.
I sampled two products from the skin care line, Trilipiderm a line inspired by Fann Corp in Chicago, where the CEO of Trilipiderm, Frank Fanning, started learning about cosmetics from his father.
It’s not greasy and doesn’t have a scent, which I love. And now after I shave my legs, I put a few drops on each section of my legs and rub it in. I seriously can’t stop touching my legs. This creme makes me want to wear more dresses and skirts.
It’s a little bit thicker when you apply it to the face, so it feels in between a sunscreen and a creme. I find that it works better on my legs and on my feet and hands when I am doing a mani/pedi.
Lipstick Butter and 3-in-1 Color Stick
Coming out of the winter month, it’s nice to add a little color to your skin. I used the 3-in-1 color stick on my eyes and my upper cheek to add a sun-kissed glow. To finish off the look, I add lipstick butter in the vine color. It’s a warm light red with orange undertones. I love lipstick, but the lipstick butter glides on my lips and has a gloss effect.

Beauty Isn’t Skin Deep:
Another one of my favorite aspects about this company is that Mineral Fusion partners with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. During last year’s Chicago mayoral election, domestic violence was one of the top concerns at the Chicago women’s forum.
