We really are spoilt for natural beauty in Australia – the outdoor kind I mean. We have beaches, mountains, wide plains and big sky, dessert and rainforest. Natio have taken inspiration from the beautiful Sapphire Coast in far south NSW for their latest limited edition makeup collection – Shimmering Seas, and it’s absolutely stunning. Celebrating the wild coastline and sparkling sea and rich marine life, the colours are gorgeous, and designed to mix and match for multiple, natural, glowing looks.
The versatile Sapphire Coast Mineral Eyeshadow Palette (RRP $21.95) contains 12 coastal inspired hues, with glimmery golds, warm earthy shades, and ocean coloured blues, to take you from work to play, and day to night in style. The ultra-flattering Luminous Pearl Perfecting Primer (RRP $17.95) with Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed helps to keep makeup in place longer during those humid Summer days, whilst mineral pigments diffuse light across your skin for a soft, shimmery glow. Show off defined cheekbones with either a pop of colour or a deeper hue with the buildable colour in the Cream Blush Stick (RRP $15.95). The universally flattering Dusk colour creates stunning looks with a cream to powder finish. The Shimmering Sands Bronze & Highlight Duo (RRP $19.94) used with the Bronze & Highlight Brush (RRP $18.95), adds a subtle glow with its ultra-fine mineral pigments. Use the highlighter for dimension, and the bronzer for a gorgeous glow. I use this both alone and over makeup in Summer. Give lips a dose of hydrating colour with the non-sticky Nourishing Lip Shine collection. Available in 3 shades (RRP $9.95 each) – Shell, Pink Coral and Sunset, these beauties give lips a hint of tint and are perfect for natural looking lips. Finally, complete your look with the Makeup Setting Spray (RRP $17.95), a fine mist with Rose and Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate skin, and helping to set makeup, keeping it in place all day.
This is a wonderful Australian makeup collection, celebrating the beauty of our wide brown land. And one of the best things about the collection, nothing is over $22, so it’s wallet friendly as well. My favourite piece – well I have a few. I love creating different looks with the Eyeshadow Palette, and giving myself a subtle glow with the Bronze & Highlight Duo. The Lip Shine has a permanent place in my hand bag. Do you see anything you like here? Let us know in the comments below.
