I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

NATorigin's cosmetics and skincare products are made from natural, gentle ingredients.  In addition to their excellent Pencil Eye Liner and Lengthening Mascara, they have now introduced a new product - NATorigin Powder Eye Shadow.

This is a really soft and gentle eye shadow, made with ultra-micronised shells of organic argan nuts from the Tree of Life and extracts of pomegranate.

Currently, it comes in 7 shades: 
Silver (81), Light Blue (84), Brown (89), Mauve (92),
Bronze (93), Golden (97) and Vanilla (98). I was given the opportunity to try the eye shadow in a couple of shades and I chose Bronze and Golden. Bronze and gold eye shadows have been used frequently on models in recent designer fashion shows.

NATorigin Eye Shadow - Bronze
NATorigin Eye Shadow - Golden

These are both lovely, glinting shades.

Taking my inspiration from the very effective but simple beauty look at the Dior Spring/Summer haute couture show, I will accent my eyelids with the Bronze eye shadow, add a little Black mascara (NATorigin's Lengthening Mascara of course) and paint my lips bright red.

The Golden eye shadow is perfect as a highlighter below the eyebrow and in the inner corner of the eye and is very beautiful when blended with a smokey eye shadow.
