Everyday Dry Skin Makeup Tutorial
Glowing Skin Over 40 with Natural, Green Beauty

When our complexion is dry, dull and lackluster, the usual makeup routine can make skin appear even worse. Powders can end up looking cakey and flaky, and undereye concealers can gather into creases. So we've partnered up with international makeup artist Kristen Arnett, who's been called "Green Leader" by ELLE Magazine and "Natural Beauty Guru" by Whole Living, to give us a how-to lesson on making our skin look SO MUCH better using the right makeup.

Kristen is one of the first and still few, makeup artists in the world working with all non-toxic, natural and organic makeup. She delivers high-performance results that help keep her clients' skin looking spectacular under any circumstance - garnering praise from celebrities, top models and regular women alike. Her popular (former) site Green Beauty Team, was the first of its kind to offer natural beauty solutions and practical advice from a pro's perspective, and became known as a whistle-blower of greenwashing brands.

Under her guidance, making our dry skin appear dewy and youthful turned out to be much easier than we thought! And, it's possible using only a handful of clean, natural cosmetics that are all available from Navago.

Check out her makeup video tutorial to get insights and tips for dry skin.
