Eco-friendly products for Earth Day

While becoming totally eco-friendly takes time and concentrated efforts, the small steps can make a big difference. This Earth Day, help the planet (and yourself) by replacing a few everyday items throughout your home with eco-friendly options.

On your sink: Radius

Plastic may be the easiest material to make toothbrushes from, but the folks at Radius (www.radiustoothbrush.com) care more about being environmentally responsible. Through using recycled material, the Radius Source Toothbrush puts an eco-friendly spin on an everyday hygiene product. Made from recycled materials such as dollar bills, flax fiber or wood, these toothbrushes also last much longer than the average toothbrush.

In your shower: Wembé

Wembé is a handmade, eco-luxe soap from Paraguay. Wembé was created by a mother and son duo from Paraguay who wanted to share the natural ingredients and restorative qualities of the rainforest with people around the world. Wembé uses only the finest natural and organic plants and ingredients to create their exotic blends like mango, avocado, black clay, yerba mate, coconut, white rose and more. For more information, visit www.Wembe.com.

In your cosmetics case: Christopher Drummond Beauty

Copy the look: Moonstruck eyes!

Celebrity makeup artist Christopher Drummond, who has worked with celebrities, such as Jennifer Lopez, Brooke
Shields, Jane Fonda, Glenn Close and Eve Ensler, offers his advice for looking flawless this holiday season.

According to Christopher, “A big trend both in fashion and in makeup for the holidays is the “moonstruck” look. Nothing says glamour like a gown and smokey eyes. And this season, the dresses are slender and simple with an occasional train and details to dazzle. To compliment your fabulous dress, makeup is flirty and smoky.”

Here are Christopher’s tips for achieving the perfect smokey eye:

1. Start with a beige shadow base all over the entire lid

2. Take a gold shadow, and apply it 3/4 of the way up, not quite all the way up to the brow. Leave some space between
where you stop and the brow

3. Apply a blue/grey shadow from the crease (middle) of the eye to the base of the lashes. Be sure to blend it well,
back and forth. This helps the product adhere, and stay on longer

4. On the outer corner of the lid, blend in a purple eye shadow to give some extra “sizzle.” Blend well

5. Finally, use a black liner to line the base of the lashes. Follow with mascara.

To compliment the smokey eyes, Christopher suggests lush lips and radiant cheeks. The new Fall/Winter 2009 Color Collection from Christopher Drummond Beauty (christopherdrummondbeauty.com) has products for all the trends for holiday in one collection (plus it’s all-natural, vegan and organic).

I was recently sent some samples from the Christopher Drummond Beauty line and was really impressed with the results. Now I have found a lot of great makeup over my years of testing but the Christopher Drummond line stands out because not only is it great makeup but it completely vegan  and natural. All those nasty chemicals and products have been left out and you still get great makeup with amazing staying power.

One of my favorite items has to be the eyeshadows (Feline & Aymee) the color is the perfect mix of matte with a hint of shine so your eyes don’t look overdone. Once you apply it, the shadow really stays put you get the same vibrant look all day with no creasing or fading.

Another stand out is cult favorite SAÚDE PELE Radiance Booster its magic powder. On top of foundation it gives my face a radiance that looks like I just returned from vacation. And on light makeup days I wear it alone on my skin to give it a little oomph. 

A great makeup line that you can feel good about wearing! 

NEW YORKChristopher Drummond Beauty, the innovative makeup line created by former model and professional makeup artist Christopher Drummond, has introduced four remarkable new products. Just like the existing products in the line, the new products are luxurious, elegant and simple. All are and made with plant extracts, botanicals and only natural ingredients.

 

The new products include: Revitalizing Facial Serum, which contains the breakthrough organic ingredient DMAE along with carrot extract, meadow foam extract, aloe, sugar cane and vitamins; Fall/Winter Color Collection, which incorporates recent runway trends; a Gift Set for Women, a product specifically for the woman who simply can not indulge as much as she used to in today’s economy; and the Crème/Cream Veludo Velvet Foundation for very fair skin.

 

“I am excited to be introducing these new products,” said Christopher Drummond, Creator of Christopher Drummond Beauty. “As with everything in the Christopher Drummond Beauty line, they are more than products, but part of our entire philosophy – beauty is individual, and every woman deserves to look and feel amazing while also using healthy ingredients.”

 

Additional product details include:

The Revitalizing Facial Serum is 100% natural with no animal testing and contains the following ingredients: DMAE (an organic compound that helps reduce wrinkles), carrot extract, meadow foam extract, aloe, sugar cane, and Vitamins A, C, E. The Revitalizing Facial Serum can also be used under the eyes to help reduce puffiness and dark circles. ($55)
