My Everyday Makeup for the Office

So after a few years of repeated requests, I've finally mustered up the courage to overcome my shyness and venture into the world of videos. For EVOKE's first tutorial on YouTube, I've decided to film my super simple 10-15 minute everyday makeup routine to show you how I lightly contour/highlight and open up hooded eyes - all while achieving a luminous glow.

I'm usually pressed for time in the mornings, as are most people (especially mommies), so I try to make my everyday application quick, simple and as natural as possible using only natural and organic products OF COURSE!

Join me as I continue my journey to inspire change to healthier cosmetics, skin care, bath & body and lifestyle products for a healthier, happier you!  Hope you guys enjoy this video and please don't forget to click LIKE, SHARE the video with your friends and SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for more tips on how you can create looks from Au natural to glam couture using alternatives to the conventional makeup gunk.

Xoxo, M.

Cancer Crackdown

Battling cancer is more than just attempting to heal physically - the mental and spiritual aspects are important as well.  Talking about the issue at hand, allowing people to help out when needed, and creating the best recovery plan tailored just for you after being presented with ALL treatment options available can all help make the entire process a little easier. 
Cancer Crackdown Logo

Cancer Crackdown began as a non-profit support group to help women, men and families who are battling cancer but is evolving into so much more.  From upbeat, online group support to one-on-one telephone counseling, Cancer Crackdown provides an outlet for you to hear from others who are battling cancer, to express your experiences - both good and bad - to help with the emotional healing in addition to providing an array of in-depth research for physical healing as well.


Tara Odom-Founder of Cancer Crackdown
Founded by Tara Odom whose passion to share her knowledge and resources is astounding, Cancer Crackdown focuses on awareness, prevention and treatment. Their support extends way beyond just receiving the occasional email in your inbox.  I am so excited to be partnering with Cancer Crackdown to provide care baskets to those who have been newly diagnosed or for a caregiver or patient that is in need of a very special gift of affection. 

Look for a newly updated Cancer Crackdown website to be unveiled soon as well as more ways EVOKE Elegance will partner with this wonderful foundation.

Incredibly Glossy Hair

After having the flu a few weeks ago, I noticed my skin and hair were in much need of some TLC - both were as dry as could be.  I put together this hair mask recipe that literally made me toss ALL other recipes I've ever concocted to the side.   If your strands are in need of major repair and moisture, try this rich and healing hair mask ~ you won't be disappointed!

Ingredients:
  • 3 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 3 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon real mayonnaise
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon pure extra virgin coconut oil


Mix all ingredients together, then apply mixture to damp hair from roots to ends.  Leave on for 5-10 minutes or longer for drier hair.  Rinse.  Follow with your regular shampoo and conditioner (both completely natural or organic I hope!).  Apply 100% Pure Argan Oil to damp hair to smooth strands and add LOTS of volume!

Let me know how this works for you :)

Here's to a FABULOUS hair day!

XOXO,
M.

Ten Most Toxic Cosmetics

"What's on your face?" is the question asked in the first slide of this article written in Bloomberg.  Do you even know?  Take a look at which products are listed as being the ten most toxic, which ingredients are causing them to be, and then evaluate the products in your makeup bag and on your vanity. 

Articles just like this one are into the millions on the web YET most are still oblivious or simply do not care.  Let's just hope it doesn't take illness (God forbid) to convince you that changes need to be made with the cosmetics AND personal care products you are using daily like it did me!

Share this with those you love....and even those you don't! ;)

What's on Your Face - Ten Most Toxic Cosmetics

The BEAUTY of Raw Cacao

With the raw food movement becoming so popular, raw cacao (cocoa) powder is all the rage!  Not only is it one of the world's most potent superfoods but, topically, it works wonders as well!  Raw cacao has four times more antioxidants than goji berries, ten times the antioxidant level of blueberries and thirty times the antioxidants contained in green tea! 

Because it is so packed with nutrients, we decided to feed our skin and smother it all over our faces to absorb the nutritional benefits of this unbelieveable superfood.  This is our way for us chocoholics to give in to our cocoa weakness without the calories and extra pounds on our hips - completely diet friendly!
So what better week to unveil our new line that incorporates the anti-aging, super baby skin softness provided by cocoa other than CHOCOLATE WEEK (side note ~ isn't "Chocolate Week" once a month for us girls anyway?)

EEM Collection is excited to bring you our Face Fudge & Face Fruit Facial Masks to indulge in maximum luxury skincare and the beneficial properties of nutrients that naturally fight aging, acne, rosacea, eczema, and so much more.  We've packed our dry facial masks with so many incredible ingredients, it's too much to list on our blog.  Let's just say ~ these are POWERHOUSE COMBOS for glowing, radiant skin!

Here is a list of masks that will be on EVOKEElegance.com during the month of October:

FACE FUDGE  2oz  $16
Coco Cashmere         (Raw Cacao, Roses, & Coconut Milk)
Fudge Dipped Bananas    (Bananas & Raw Cacao {Chocolate})

Organic, natural & wild crafted Perfume Oils

Did you know that synthetic perfume is made of toxic chemicals that can injure your health? Many of the chemicals in conventional perfumes are the same chemicals in cigarette smoke, and yet there is no regulation of the fragrance industry. Many people are "bothered" by perfumes - developing headaches (or migraines like me!), sinus problems, and even asthma from exposures. Many have gotten sick or even disabled from wearing (or being exposed to) fragrances and using other scented products. And fragrances are now used in almost every cleaning, laundry, and personal-care product on the market! These toxic chemicals go directly into the bloodstream when applied to our skin and are also absorbed into the skin from our clothing. We also inhale the chemical fumes, which then go straight to our brains where they can do major harm. Many even have a "narcotic" effect, which is why some people seem "addicted" to their perfumes. 
www.EVOKEElegance.com

As an alternative, choose the healthy way to still be able to enjoy delightful aromas with essential oils and hydrosols like EEM Collection's Natural Parfum Oils.  EEM's Parfum Oils are made with organic, natural and wildcrafted ingredients.  Our highly concentrated perfume oils are sophisticated botanical extracts and organic essential oil blends in an organic carrier oil base with no synthetics, phthalates or parabens...ever!

It's about time people start realizing that the products heavily marketed to them are toxic on so many levels! So many corporations do not list loads of toxic ingredients on their labels that cause various ailments from reproductory organ mutations to cancer. Even the corporations that DO list many (not all) of the toxic ingredients in their products remain successful at their clever marketing schemes because most people don't read the labels - and IF they do, aren't informed on what the ingredient is or does to their bodies. Some might not even care! 

Next time you start to spray on that perfume or use some other scented product, remember all the chemicals you're exposing yourself and those around you to! There's absolutely nothing "romantic" about these chemicals! Synthetic perfume being something "romantic" is merely a line fed to you by the perfume industry - don't buy into it! We've been brainwashed by the industry that we must "cover up" our natural scents with toxic chemicals - that our own scents or scents derived from the earth's herbs and flowers are not acceptable. Once you make the break and get away from toxic scents, the smell of "naturally clean" is simply wonderful!

Research those labels - I dare you! Knowledge is everything! Soak it up, guys! - It could mean your health!

DIY Natural Penetrating Chest Rub

Toss the OTC meds for common colds!  Synthetically suppressing cold symptoms could not only bring about other illnesses like liver disease and kidney issues, but it prevents the body from properly healing and doing its job of ridding itself of phlegm and germs and fills your children's bodies with dangerous artificial dyes weakening the immune system and actually lengthening the life of the virus.

With the kids back to school and flu season right around the corner, this DIY organic decongestant is sure to come in handy and naturally relieve nasal congestion and help to clear/break up mucus that settles in the back of the throat and in the chest. 
When my children get colds and noses get stuffy, I mix 1 heaping  tablespoon of coconut oil and 8-9 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil in a bowl and rub on their chest and place a warm heating pad (or warm washcloth) over the chest for about 10-15 minutes before they go to bed.  This mixture was especially great when my daughter suffered from asthma in her younger years.  

AMAZING TIP: A great tip many people aren't aware of is to also take the same mixture and rub on the bottoms of feet and slip on a pair of thick cozy socks. When the mixture is applied to feet, it settles coughs throughout the night so your little on can get a good night's rest.


After one to two nights of applying this mixture, you're little one will probably begin to cough quite heavily as the mucus will begin to break up and loosen.  Encourage him to cough out the phlegm and spit (preferrably into the toilet to prevent the spreading of germs) to help speed up the healing process.

Just another PHENOMENAL use for coconut oil!

Works wonders for adults as well.  Please spot test prior to use for allergies and don't use more eucalyptus oil than suggested or can cause skin irritation.

Let me know if this works just as well for you as it does for our family and pass along this flu season! :)

Holy Basil!

Recently, I've discovered the astounding benefits of basil - not just any old supermarket bought basil but, more specifically, Holy Basil or Thyme Basil as it's sometimes called.  Holy basil contains more beneficial compounds the basic basil but if you can't find the oh so holy kind, regular basil will do.  Because I use basil for its other beneficial uses besides beauty, I readily have it available at home.  If you do not have fresh basil leaves (which I highly recommend), you can purchase basil essential oil as a substitute.

One of my FAVORITE ways I've been using Holy basil lately is as a blemish eraser!    I've cleared up breakouts by boiling a handful of basil in 1 cup of water for about 10 minutes, allowing it to cool, dipping a cotton ball into the liquid, and then dabbing on breakout zones.  I wait approximately 10 more minutes before splashing with water to rinse.  I did this morning and night for a week or so and Holy cow - clear skin!

Holy basil's oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, and an antioxidant which all helps to combat pimples.  It's a super source of iron too making it a great addition to your raw spinach salads to boost iron levels during menstruation.  Holy basil has also been found to detoxify your liver so adding it to cleansing raw juicing and smoothie recipes for an extra detox kick.  Basil has also been found to have anti anxiety effects (lowers cortisol levels) with the phytochemicals it contains.  Try adding a few leaves to your steeping tea to calm and relieve stress. 

Can't go wrong with these greens...unless you are pregnant or breastfeeding!  If you are, please discuss basil usage with your doctor. :) 

Here is a GREAT link to more information on the health benefits of basil.

Enjoy!

Nature's superfood blessing for skin & hair

It's so nice to be able to find a product that is both organic and has multiple uses!  Can your products do double or even triple duty?  Argan Oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world.  Many major cosmetic companies have been including the smallest traces of the oil in their products in order to market them as an "Argan Oil" item and profit of its recent popularity - while many others have bottled it pure and charged a pretty penny for it (such as Josie Maran's 1.7oz bottle for $48!).

Argan Oil possesses a remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and improve skin elasticity. The oil is high in lipids including the omega-9 oleic acid and the omega-6 linoleic acid. Argan oil can be effective in treating dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne, aging and sunburned skin.  Its high polyphenol content makes it a strong anti-oxidant. This oil possesses anti-inflammatory properties and is highly beneficial to reduce swelling and ease muscle aches and pains.

Vitamin E (tocopherol). Argan Oil is astoundingly rich in Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant which helps slow the process of lipids from the destructive effects of oxygen (oxidation) as well as other environmental effects. Vitamin E is naturally occurring in skin, and helps the skin function as a water-proof barrier. With age and exposure to sun and pollution, this barrier is broken down and causes a lack of moisture, which damages the skin’s lipids. Many skincare products contain synthetic vitamin E, which helps keep skin hydrated and soft, however it is no match for naturally derived vitamin E, such as that found in Argan Oil.

Here are just a few of its beneficial properties:


Essential Fatty Acids. Argan Oil is also incredibly rich in essential fatty acids, which have been scientifically proven to be beneficial both when taken orally, but also when applied topically to skin. Not having enough EFAs can cause conditions in which the skin becomes flaky, dry, scaly and uncomfortable; conditions like psoriasis and eczema, as well as acne. EFAs have an anti-inflammatory effect on skin, and also increase suppleness, elasticity and youthful appearance and relieve painful skin conditions. Exposure to UV also decreases the skin’s EFAs, and so treating sun damaged skin with Argan Oil has been shown to repair damage to photo-aged skin, as well as on scarring.


For hair, EFAs prevent breakage and promote smooth and supple strands by increasing moisture content, which is the single best thing that can be done for your hair. Just a drop or two of Argan oil smoothed through brittle hair, from roots to tips, will improve its condition in no time. It also treats dandruff and itchy scalp.


Carotene. Carotene, found in Argan Oil, as well as in many fruits and veggies, is a precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A, also known as Retinol, has been garnering a lot of attention from the beauty industry in the past few years. It is effective as an anti-aging ingredient in cosmetics, by protecting the skin from sun damage, and undoing damage already done. It also helps even skin tone, and adds a healthy glow. For hair, it counteracts fragility, reduces split ends and encourages a healthy sparkle.


Squalene. Squalene is found naturally in all plants and animals. As an additive in cosmetics, it penetrates skin easily and is absorbed readily, without leaving a greasy residue and is non-irritating. It does not cause skin to breakout, and is effective in healing scar tissue and preventing stretch marks. Squalene may also reduce hair loss and is a highly effective conditioning agent.

From our site:  "Discover the legendary wonders of this beauty miracle!  Imported from Morocco, EEM Collection's 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil is as pure as it gets.  Rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids, as mentioned above, our nutrient-dense Argan Oil is cold pressed to ensure the highest grade oil possible.  The saponins contained in our oil help to soften the skin and restore the skin's water lipid layer, thereby minimizing wrinkles.  Our oil can also be used to ease cases of acne and eczema helping the skin to maintain a youthful, glowing appearance.  The best thing about EEM Collection's Pure Argan Oil is its endless uses.  One bottle of oil can be used for skin, hair, nails, and even first aid.  100% Pure Organic Argan Oil has been clinically proven to improve skin hydration and skin elasticity after only four weeks." 


100% Certified Organic Pure Argan Oil by EEM Collection available now at EVOKEElegance.com - $32 for 3.3 fl oz

Natural Homeopathic Remedy & Relief for Asthma Sufferers

With asthma cases soaring through the roof (20 million adults and 9 million children and counting), it seems almost as if it has become quite a common and accepted condition.  Asthma is the most prevalent chronic condition in children!  Big pharma is making BILLIONS on asthma medications alone. 

Having an 11 year old stepson with asthma and a daughter who had asthma for the first 4 years of her life (she eventually outgrew it completely -THANK GOD), we have had our fair share of sleepless nights, days off from school and work, hospital stays and experiences surrounding upper respiratory issues, infections and full fledged asthma attacks.

From Xopenex to Albuterol (causes accelerated heart beat and hyperactivity), Flovent (causes tooth decay) and Claritan (causes depression and irritability), we have tried ALL that was prescribed and our children endured the above mentioned side effects due to us not knowing that there were natural alternatives to remedy the heavy phlegm, wet coughs and wheezing.

We discovered "Asthma Free" by King Bio about a year ago and FINALLY found a natural remedy that works INSTANTLY just as an inhaler would with NO SIDE EFFECTS. 

There are lots of herbs and herbal tinctures that help to prevent asthma symptoms and those that also keep lungs clear over a long period of time.  Altering your diet, freeing yourself of processed foods, and being aware of all your food allergies (and avoiding them) also help to reduce symptoms.  BUT most people do not have the time to steep tea, make and take loads of herbal concoctions, or have the financial ability to purchase a plethora of supplements.  Over exertion, weather conditions and allergies can cause a bout of wheezing that needs instant relief, especially with asthmatic children playing in this summer heat. 

"Asthma Free" is a pure water based spray that aids people with blocked airways due to chronic sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive lung diseases, and other diseases of the respiratory tract.  A few sprays into the mouth when you feel breathless and it will make breathing easier within just a few seconds!

Here is an excerpt from their product description:

"King Bio Homeopathic Natural Medicine Asthma Free is for fast relief of minor shortness of breath, wheezing & tightness in chest, mucus congestion, suffocating sensation - Associated with bronchial asthma, helping to activate normal breathing. King Bio Homeopathic Natural Medicine Asthma Free is a revolutionary taste-free medicine. King Bio Homeopathic Natural Medicine Asthma Free has no side effects."

"Asthma Free" contains medicinal herbs and is 100% natural!  It is sold over the counter at your local health food store.  We purchase ours here at a great price!  I keep one in my purse and have my stepson carry one in his lunchbox to camp with him everyday in case of an attack for safe, natural relief.  I cannot guarantee it will work for ALL asthma sufferers but has worked WONDERS in our home and the reviews I have read from people who use Asthma Free have all indicated phenomenal results as well! :)

Natural remedy - "CHECK"
    .......Causes/reason for the prevalence of asthma increasing 75% from 1980-2010 - RESEARCH & reveal possible/suspected conspiracy ASAP!

Laugh lots, love lots, learn lots & then share it with the world!

Mineral oil increases cancer risk tremendously

Still using conventional moisturizers?  Can't part with your deliciously scented body creams?  Love to lather your baby with oil and scented lotions you pick up at the grocery store because the commercials convince you that their products are healthy for your little one?

How healthy are those body lotions and creams and how obsessed do you have to be with them to still use them after discovering they increase cancer risk by up to 69%!!!  You can absorb more toxins from your skin care products than your food!!!

This is one of the very reasons why we've created our EEM Collection line of cosmetics for your entire family and the reason why we created EVOKE Elegance as a one stop shop for various product lines that are SAFE, NON-TOXIC, MINERAL, PARABEN, CHEMICAL FREE you can trust!

EEM's Matte Collection is Almost Here!

Arriving soon, we can barely contain our excitement about our new EEM Matte Pigment Collection so we've decided to make our sneak peek available now!**

We've searched high and low for the perfect, color rich formulation of the safest matte pigments (highly concentrated loose powder eyeshadows) that are of the highest quality and worthy of our EVOKE Elegance Makeup (EEM) Collection label.   We specifically sought only the purest, most natural minerals around in an amazing range of colors that delivered maximum color payoff that actually lasts ALL DAY.

Our EEM Matte Eyeshadows are highly pigmented, which means the color lasts longer and is more vibrant as opposed to a regular eyeshadow. The major cosmetic companies (MAC, Loreal, etc) add loads of chemicals, parabens and harsh ingredients to their shadows and pigments in order for them to adhere to the skin and last hours on end. But EEM Matte Pigments are made with minerals mined from the earth that are non-toxic, vegan, all natural and safe for pregnant women, teens, allergy sufferers and even those with the most sensitive eyes.

When using most conventional eyeshadows, you have to apply it a few times to see a decent amount of color. With our EEM Matte Pigments being so concentrated, the first stroke you see will be the actual colour as it is in the pot. You can even use it as eyeliner.  All of our pigments are great for mixing your eyeshadows, as a highlighter, and to mix it with your lipstick or lip glosses.  They are so versatile due to their rich pigment. A little goes a VERY long way!
 **To get your Sneak Peek of this great new matte pigment collection, just place an EVOKEElegance.com order over $10 (before shipping) between May 26th and June 3rd (offer good while supplies last) and we’ll send you a lab sample of a new matte shadow.  These samples are the final formula and we hope you fall in love with them just as much as we have!


For super smooth, super soft and blendable pigments try EEM's Matte Collection and lightly apply for subtle, natural color or add a little more for a couture look.  Let your eyes steal the spotlight tonight!TM

TIP:  Try investing in velvety soft, high quality makeup brushes to distribute the pigments evenly
Video tutorials using our Matte Collection coming soon!

Splenda is Poison

I've written numerous posts on Stevia Imposters because I assumed most people were already aware of the horrible effects Splenda (sucralose) has on your entire body and made the switch to all natural Stevia.  (Please note:  Truvia and Purvia are chemically engineered just as Splenda is!)

But based on sales of Splenda packets and products that include Splenda, I was sadly mistaken. Corporations have continued to deceive you by adding Splenda to a vast array of products and do not have to label it as including Splenda.  Instead, they have chosen to add "sucralose" to the ingredients list knowing most have no clue what sucralose is.  From children's juices to "lite" or sugar-free snacks and cereals - they have managed to add sucralose to MOST processed foods!  PLEASE BE AWARE AND READ LABELS:  SUCRALOSE = SPLENDA = TOXIC!

Pure Stevia and xylitol are all natural sweeteners that must replace any artificial sweetener you are currently using!

Here is an article by Dr. Mercola that details the harm Splenda causes from a doctor's point of view. 
The Other Sweetener that is Made From Sugar, but closer to DDT 

Knowledge is everything - attain, retain it, & share it with the world!

Doctors Ignore Root Causes of Cancer
