Laura-Jane-Sessions-HS2Boasting an impressive career over the past seventeen years that has seen her working in the various fields of film, music videos and fashion, Laura Jane Sessions is a natural make-up artist and passionate advocate of ethical and ecological beauty.

Concerned by the ever-accumulating list of toxins in mainstream cosmetics, five years ago Sessions made the conscious decision to detox her own make-up kit, replenishing the synthetic chemically laden products found in most conventional make-up kits with natural and organic alternatives.

Read on to find out her five favourite natural and organic products and her top tip for achieving bright eyes.

Top Five Products

This foundation is a mainstay of my professional kit. I work mainly in television and commercials and this base is perfect for creating a semi-matte, even finish to male make-ups.

Cream blusher looks great on just about everyone and this is my go-to product every time. Blossoming is perfect for creating a naturally rosy, fresh faced look on paler skin tones, whilst Joyful gives a beautiful summery finish to darker skin.

I love the foundations from Vapour Organic Beauty. For a perfect sheer coverage that can be built up where desired try their Atmopshere Luminous Foundation or for a flawless, dewy finish try out Atmosphere Soft Focus.

This translucent loose powder is a great choice for setting foundations and mattifying the skin. It is easy to wear and super lightweight meaning it wont sit heavily on the skin.

I love Ilia lipsticks – a fantastic range of semi-matte shades that are long lasting and hydrating. Humble Me and Neon Angel are amongst my ultimate favourites.

Expert Tip

Applying concealer to the under eye area can be tricky. Tilt your head forward until the under eye shadow becomes most evident. Apply the concealer to just the darker areas rather than across the whole under eye area and lightly blend – this will help avoid the under eye looking puffy and pouchy.
