Emmy Nominated Karim Orange Shares "Going Green" Cosmetic Tips!

I believe that in heaven we will be able to go to any cosmetic or makeup counter and not have to worry one bit about all of the additives and ingredients involved. Ingredients that cause us an array of diseases. BUT, we are not in heaven. So how about in a perfect world? Can we find ingredients that won't harm us but still keep us the divas we aspire to be?
Nowadays divas need to be just as concerned with not only what we put on are bodies but what we put in our bodies. And as we know, if it goes on your skin it goes a whole lot deeper.

So lets try and make this Holiday season a green one.

Start with a good foundation. Even if you must apply your current foundation or powder with all of its toxic chemicals, lay down a organic compound first..your skin will love you for it.

My picks:
*For glowing skin try Barleans The Essential Women. This is a supplement you take orally for the skin to make you glow glow glow and it contains omega 3-6 and 9 essential fatty acids.

*Suki pure facial moisture in formula sited for your skin type. It contains ingredients such as jojoba, sunflower, grape seed, rice germ, evening primrose, rose hip seed & carrot seed oils*, 100% natural non-gmo vitamin e, organic apricot kernel oil, calendula, lavender, rose & carrot seed extracts*, aroma (pure premium steam distilled essential oil) *organic
This lays a good foundation available at Whole Foods Market

*Powder by ZuZu Luxe- they are totally out of this world,very soft blendable. Available at Whole Foods Market

*Foundations in your shade try Nvey- This is one of the only certified organic lines out there available at Macy's

*Blush by Dr Hauschka-in color appropriate for your skin

* Eye shadows try Zuzu for some fun-hip colors try Gabriel Cosmetics for some basics both available at Whole Foods

The rest is all about lips this season...lipstick and its ingredient's are the most important cosmetic product you place on your face since we end up eating most of it....Make it organic..

*Nvey to the rescue great ingredients and color

367 is a wonderful lip color for most shades except the very very fair and the very very dark.Go bold and pucker up by adding gloss in Amour Rose

370 is a wonderful peachy color perfect for blondes everyday, intensify with Fresh gloss

359 is also great for blonds or anyone who desires a bit of pink

351 wonderful on deeper skin tones

356 is a beautiful, beautiful color for deeper skin tones, very rich like velvet, make it pop more by adding coco honey lip-gloss

355 I love, purple is in! red red red

369 is a true orange red, add temptress gloss for evening for deeper skin tones start with lipstick 354 and add temptress gloss to make it a red for your skin tone.

seduce me- is a wonderful everyday gloss with a little color great on someone with natural pink lips
