Origins is promoting a brand new re-usable tote promoting eco-friendly living. Origins takes its natural premise one giant leap further changing the beauty landscape by providing consumers with a new choice in personal care products through a collection of skin, body and hair care products certified to meet United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic standards. As the organic movement began to spread its wings from the produce aisles of grocery stores, Origins waited somewhat impatiently for organic capabilities to stretch to the beauty-care arena.

“I Don’t Get Wasted” Shopping Bag | 100% Organic Cotton Canvas $10
What a fun tote bag! Be eco-friendly with this 100% organic cotton canvas tote bag, but fashionable with its cute design and slogan. It’s a handy way to save on plastic bags for those quick trips to the grocery store, or even use it as a book bag! It’s quite large, so ladies with those mammoth purses (yes, I’m looking at you!), you’ll find it accommodating.

BYO Toting this 100% certified organic cotton canvas bag when you shop makes great eco-sense. Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. Billions of these bags end up as litter or in landfills each year. And to make the billions of paper grocery bags used annually, millions of trees are felled each year. Beyond helping to save the environment, 100% of the profits from the purchase of this bag will be donated to the Organic Farming Research Foundation. The OFRF fosters the improvement and widespread adoption of local organic farming practices by sponsoring research and education projects; disseminating the results to organic farmers and growers interested in adopting organic production systems and educating the public and decision-makers about organic farming issues.

Lady in blue, gorgeous and slinky in such a bold number. Go for icy eyes or a smoldering smoky eye with blue undertones with this Laura Mercier quad of shadows. Try light blue all over lid with the black in th outer crease and along lower lash line. Use Dior blush in Passion Fruit for cool pink cheeks, slightly flushed, but just the barest hint of color. Top with Moon Fleet lip gloss by NARS, a cool gold, for subtle lips.

1. Donna Ricco Stretch Satin Sheath Dress @ Nordstrom for $158.00icon
2. Dior Blush in Passion Fruit @ Sephora for $34.00
3. Laura Mercier Eye Colour Quad in Blue Sky @ Nordstrom for $38.00icon
4. NARS Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Gloss in Moon Fleet / Indian Red @ Sephora for $28.00

On the other hand, leave out the blue shadows and go for volumizing black mascara and kohl liner, and use Indian Red by NARS for a gorgeous deep red lip. If you want to swipe a wash of color on the lid, try something neutral and matte, and keep the crease light and also matte. Matte colors will give you depth without attracting too much attention. This dress is such a stunner on its own that makeup can be minimal.

What do you do to get out of a makeup rut? Most of us, if not all of us, have had it happen to us. Our interest in makeup wanes, we end up doing less and less, or we do something incredibly simple and nothing more extravagant. How do you beat the makeup blues? How do you rediscover your creativity?

Are you picky about the beauty products you buy? Do you spend a bit of time contemplating your purchase or what item you really want to get? Do you make many impulse buys (that may or may not work out well)?

I definitely contemplate a great deal when I’m looking at buying products these days.I have a fair bit of makeup, so I try to make sure I add valuable pieces to it, rather than further accumulate the same shade of green shadow or yet another plain pink lipstick.
