WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME
Wow, that’s a tricky one! My sister and I still have the biggest collection of DVD’s that we love to watch. I also love my Playstation 2.
MY FAVORITE RAAW PRODUCTS
All of them! Well, I've got all of them but right now I mostly use Rosehip Facial Oil - it gives me glowy skin every morning! If I have time in the morning I take a shower, put on Rosehip Facial Oil and then use the Plankton Enzyme Crème and then Laminaria Eye Crème. I also love Eye Love, I use it on all my clients.
I aim to have the purest kit, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. I really don’t want to use anything that can give my clients an allergic reaction. It’s important to me that I can vouch for the products I use on other people.
Rosehip Facial Oil gives a good base, it soaks into the skin quickly and I look fresh every time I wear it. In the winter, I’m very dry (especially around my nose) and I think Rosehip is perfect product for those spots and obviously the rest of my face! After applying the oil, my skin is ready for makeup.
HOW I USE MY RAAW PRODUCTS
Professionally - I always use either Blue Beauty Drops or Rosehip Facial Oil, depending on the skin type of my whoever I am working with. I always use Eye Love underneath the eyes of my clients. It reduces puffiness around the eye area and it is a great product for people with thinner skin under the eyes as they tend to have darker circles and Eye Love really brightens them up. Maybe it’s a bit of psychological thing with the coffee beans – but it definitely works! I do a lot of fashion shoots so the makeup can look ‘alive’ – and the facial oils contribute to the glowy / dewy look, even though I put foundation and powder on top of it. Before I knew about RAAW I didn’t use oils beneath makeup, but it gives a consistent surface to work with.
